“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. The event has been held for 28 years and the record for participants stands at 484 in 2017 when we started in York. We do set an entry limit based upon the accommodations we have arranged for in the various towns we will be stopping in. For the past number of years we have reached that limit and unfortunately had to cut off registration early. Tour Nebraska is a NRCA members only event, however, non-members are encouraged to join the association and participate.
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 party. Each year we have a party theme. 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. “
