We are shifting to a different host hotel for 2018! The newer and much acclaimed Hyatt Place is a stunning waterfront hotel on Rehoboth Bay, next to Dewey’s landmark Rusty Rudder restaurant. The Hyatt features sleek modern architecture and furnishings, an indoor saltwater pool, complimentary hot breakfast, access to watersport rental equipment and other thoughtful amenities. It’s only one block from the Atlantic, so you have access to two bodies of water (the bay and the ocean) and the beach! Additionally, the location is still convenient to our old stomping grounds on Baltimore Ave. in Rehoboth, just 2 miles/6 minutes down the road.

After 17 years, hosting the event at Rehoboth needed a refresh, so we are shaking things up a bit this year. We will always appreciate our good times at The Atlantic Sands over the years, but we want to explore other areas along Delaware’s beautiful coast, and provide club members with new experiences at Beach Ball.

We are also incorporating fun new activities into the weekend that will keep the focus on our cars and enticing destinations for those who want more opportunities to be out and about in their car… or a friend's car! Details of the weekend's agenda will be updated as we firm them up, so stay tuned.


To top it off, these changes allow for a substantially reduced registration fee. We’ve been chipping away at the registration fee for a number of years now, but this year, (drum roll) early-bird registration is only $99. Yes, $99—our lowest price in over 15 years, and 50% lower than the peak fee a few years ago!
