20th Annual Britain on the Green
Sponsored by the Capital Triumph Register
The Capital Triumph Register is proud to announce that the 20th Annual Britain on the Green (BOG) will be held at historic Gunston Hall, the colonial home of patriot George Mason, on April 30, 2017. BOG, which welcomes all British cars and motorcycles, is now well-established as one of the premier all-British shows in the metropolitan DC area.

Mark your calendars now and plan to attend as we expect this year to be the best ever! In addition to hundreds of beautiful British vehicles on display, we'll have live music, a Food Truck Alley, a sponsor/vendor Midway for your automotive needs, activities for children, and tours of the Gunston Hall mansion and gardens for participants and spectators.

Participant's Choice honors will be awarded in 25 or more classes of British cars and motorcycles. There will also be a number of special awards including Best Resto-Mod, Best Survivor. Best Display, and of course, Best of Show. Finally, we will have a special 20th Anniversary Award and Hagerty Youth Judging.

So please plan on joining us on April 30th for the 20th Annual Britain on the Green. It is a great day to bring out your car, celebrate the arrival of spring and British Car Week, and kick off the British car show and driving season with friends, family, and fellow enthusiasts.

Online pre-registration is scheduled to open on February 15th. Remember, pre-registration speeds your entry, ensures your place on the show field, and determines classes and awards. In addition, pre-registrants receive the collectable 20th Anniversary show poster by famed artist Joseph Craig English. All for $25, a savings of $10 from Day-of registration.

Portland, Oregon - April 30, 2017
21st Annual Autojumble - All British Swap Meet
Montgomery Park Parking Deck, 2701 NW Vaughn Street
LETS GET READY FOR SUMMER swap meet for British cars, parts, and related items. This meet is scheduled for the last Sunday in April to allow time to get your prize vehicles ready to DRIVE. Because of the success of our previous Autojumbles and the lack of British auto items at the much larger Portland Swap Meet, we are committed to making this an annual affair. (Remember, always the last Sunday in April).

We are continuing with the same successful format; inexpensive for exhibitors, free to buyers, and not over-organized. The focus is on British car stuff only – no muscle cars, model “A” Fords, speed equipment, or antique or collectable glassware. Only British cars and car related items will be displayed.

The sites for parts vendors will be covered in case of rain. There will be adequate space for cars to be displayed for sale, possibly covered. Any British car club that has members committed to a total of five or more spaces will get the use of a free space to solicit membership or sell regalia.

Setup from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
Sales from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Everything cleared out by 3:00 p.m.

Fees:
Parts for sale spaces – $10 (one normal parking space)
Cars for sale spaces – $15
