Tour Nebraska 2018 - North Platte
   
 This will be our 26th year for Tour Nebraska ----June 2nd and 3rd - Our host city for this event will be North Platte Nebraska.  We are pleased to have  the sponsorship of the North Platte/Lincoln County Visitors Bureau.  We are equally pleased to have the sponsorship of Bill Summers Ford.  These sponsorships really help produce great tour.

Interest and registration for Tour Nebraska 2018 has been so strong that for the second year we have been required to impose a limit of 400.   That limit was reached on March 29th.  You may still register and given an opportunity to be placed on our waiting list in case of a cancellation.





About Tour Nebraska

      Tour Nebraska is a unique "driving event" covering 600 miles in two days. This is not a car show, and there are no trophies - we believe everyone who participates is a winner.  It always held on the first week end in June that contains any day in June.It is open to all 4 wheel vehicles - 30 years old or older.  So, for 2018 we will accept vehicles 1988 and older.    The event has been held for 25 years and the record for participants stands at 484 in 2018 when we started in York.  Tour Nebraska is a NRCA members only event, however, non-members are encouraged to join the association and participate.
      Tour Nebraska is a great value - only $25 and you get one high quality T-shirt - additional shirts are $15 (xxxL is $18) and we also produce a DVD of the even for $12.  Proceeds from the DVD help support our scholarship fund for Nebraska tech schools students in an automotive curriculum. 
     We refer to it as an "adventure" rather than a trip and most likely you will go to places that you would not have seen otherwise.  The first day starts in our host city at 6:30 in the morning with a driver's meeting to get any last minute instructions.  For safety reasons, we break the tour into two groups.  Each group has at least two tour leaders and the groups are separated by about 15 minutes.  Breaks and receptions are scheduled in communities each morning.  We also have a noon break and a catered lunch for those who are interested.   Generally, we will travel close to 200 miles in the morning up to the lunch stop and then roughly 100 miles back to our host city by about 3:30.  
    The host city changes each year and we try to work closely with  host clubs to provide for local needs.  On Saturday evening we have a costume party with a live band, dance floor, open bar, and a lip sync contest. This year's theme is "Western"  kind of goes with the location too! Since we will getting up early on Sunday, we shut our party down early at 10:30.
     
    Sunday finds us assembling again at 6:30 and during our short program we say goodbye to our host city and club.  Then at 7:00 we are off on another 300 mile adventure that will end with a final reception.   
    Tour Nebraska  is a " members only" event but you can join NRCA as a step in the registration process.   Registration opened  January 1, 2018.   In 2017 for the first time we set a limit and cut off entries when it was reached.

The Saturday map is confusing - but we leave North Platte heading North and make a loop back to Ogallala for our morning break.  We leave the break and head south to Grant and then west to Holyoke CO.   From there we drive North to Oshkosh for our lunch break.  The afternoon route is back through Ogallala and to North Platte.
