Western Traveler's PlaqueText Box:


†††† The purpose of this program is to promote visitation and friendly competition at the chapter level. Any and all chapter "participants" may participate in the capture of the Western Traveler Plaque.

     There will be
NO minimum number of GWRRA members, representing their home chapter, required to capture the Western Travelerís Plaque.

     All members, whether full, associate or family, attending a gathering will be eligible to capture the plaque. Each member 18 years of age and over will be given a ticket for the drawing of the plaque.

     Each member will be required to show the Chapter Director a current GWRRA membership card upon request; the plaque may be captured by automobile or motorcycle; there is no minimum mileage required; the winner of the plaque will be determined by a ticket drawing.
The chapter that has traveled the longest distance will receive one extra ticket.

     The capturing Chapter Director is responsible for notifying the ADD West, Dave & Dianne Smith† wingridernc@gmail.com , or by phone 828-273-5398 within 24 hours of capture.

    Within thirty five (35) days of capture, starting the day and hour captured, the capturing chapter must make the plaque available at their next monthly gathering or at their scheduled Chapter Special Event, whichever comes first. Once a chapter has captured the plaque, that chapter is not eligible to capture it at the next gathering or special event; however, if no other chapter is present to claim the plaque, then the previous chapter that held the plaque becomes eligible.

Please award the plaque within the first 15 minutes of the start of your gathering.

††† The capturing chapter will attach a visitation bar to the Western Travelerís Plaque upon capture.


In the month of November, the only chapters eligible to capture the plaque are those with a scheduled gathering in November after the date they capture the plaque.


†† The chapter capturing the plaque the most times will receive permanent possession of the plaque for the year.


Each time a chapter captures the plaque their chapter's name will go into a drawing for $100.00.


The $100.00 and permanent possession of plaque will be given away at the 2022 North Carolina Officerís Conference held the last Saturday in January.

The inclusive dates for this program are from date of Officerís Conference to November 30th of each year.


This Plaque retires on November 30th, 2021.


Please get Plaque to Clyde Alexander as soon as possible after the deadline.
