Join us for the Jaguar Clubs of North America’s 2021 Annual General Meeting!
Join us for a fun, productive Annual General Meeting in Columbia. Late August highs average 90 degrees and overnight lows around 70. The Marriott Columbia is located on Main Street, which is lined with mature live oak trees that provide sidewalk shade and is just three blocks from the South Carolina capital.
On Saturday mornings until 1 p.m., Main Street is closed for the ‘Soda City Market,’ with an average of 150 local producer vendors. Main Street also has shopping, dining, and other attractions within walking distance.

Friday, starting at 10 a.m., Coventry Foundation will host an open house with activities, heavy hors d'oeuvres and refreshments throughout the afternoon. Frequent shuttles will be provided to Coventry Foundation from the Marriot. Several Jags, the factory tool collection, rare Jaguar literature, media, and collectibles, as well as the JCNA archives, will be on view. There will be a silent auction, and perhaps even a ‘garage sale’ of extras. With model cars supplied by the Foundation, a remote-controlled car slalom will be held and champions will be crowned! Attendees may drive their Jags to the Foundation, regardless of condition, for a ‘People’s Choice’ award.
Friday evening, Coventry Foundation is sponsoring a cash bar that will carry over to the ‘Cannonball Dinner’ where JSSC member and pitmaster Doug Mills will slow-cook BBQ along with traditional sides.
The speaker will be Dave Yarborough from Charleston, who, with David Heinz, won the 1979 Cannonball Run in an XJ-S. Dave was a Jaguar dealer throughout the 1970s. There’s talk of a movie, too!
