Due to needing a head count for meals and events, registration for all events is closed. You are still welcome to come and see the display of cars at the Concours on Friday. Just tell the main gate that you are there to see the Jaguar Concours and they will waive the admission fee. There is still an ONLINE LINK to the Hotel to make it easy to make your reservations. We also have a MAP that shows where Participants are coming from.
We would like to thank our Sponsors. This event would not happen or be as nice without their help and support. Most of them will have their people on site to answer any questions you might have about their products and services.
North Georgia Jaguar Club
The JCNA affiliated North Georgia Jaguar Club was started by Roy Cleveland, Joe Newell, and Terry Hulsey in late 2001. These three prominent Atlanta area Jaguar enthusiasts, along with other like-minded Jaguar owners and enthusiasts, wanted to participate in the wider range of JCNA organized automotive related activities than was being offered by the local Jaguar club. Enthusiasm for the JCNA club was evident from the beginning as our new club quickly grew holding our first sanctioned Concours in the fall of 2002 and hosting the JCNA Challenge Championship at Chateau Elan in 2005 to rave reviews. Club membership is now over one hundred and fifty and many of the early members are still very active in supporting club activities including Dick Maury, who served as JCNA President from 2010 to 2015 and continues to host our award-winning club web site.
Hennessy Jaguar, the premier corporate sponsor of the 2017 JCNA International Jaguar Festival, has been our good friend and club sponsor from the beginning hosting our annual Concours and holding numerous special events at their dealership locations. The JCNA IJF would not be possible without the support all of our Sponsors. Our club's intent is to enjoy Jaguar automobiles, preserve and advance the Jaguar Marque, and share information about maintenance, restoration and use of these great automobiles. Our members own the full range of Jaguars from the oldest to the newest and we welcome both. There is something for everyone from driving tours, visits to private car collections, overnight drives, car shows to include our annual, internationally-sanctioned Concours d'Elegance, slalom competition and social events. Most Jaguar owners feel that theirs is much more than just another car. Our club is here so we can enjoy our cars and the camaraderie of a great bunch of Jag-Lovers.
