Land Rover turns 75 in 2023, with celebrations scheduled around the world. The Association of North American Rover Clubs (ANARC), a new organization that unifies Land Rover clubs across the United States and Canada, is putting on a Diamond Jubilee event at Greek Peak Ski Resort in Cortland, New York, from June 14-17, 2023. Tickets are now available for a long weekend of Land Rover fun.
If you're a Land Rover enthusiast who was around in 1998 for the fiftieth anniversary, the terms "ANARC" (pronounced like "anarchy" without the last syllable) and "Greek Peak" may sound familiar. Back in the 90s, the Ottawa Valley Land Rovers (OVLR) and Rovers Owners Association of Virginia (ROAV) clubs joined forces with some other Land Rover clubs to put on an anniversary event. The location they chose was Greek Peak, and the event that ensued became a part of North American Land Rover legend. A quarter-century later, ANARC has reformed, and after looking at several venues it turned out that a renovated Greek Peak was still an excellent place to celebrate an anniversary.
The event will take place from Wednesday, June 14, to Sunday, June 18, 2023. Over three full days of activities, there will be guided trail rides (about ten miles worth, for all skillsets and vehicles), expo sessions to learn new skills and hear stories of adventure, a six-course competitive RTV trials experience, the ANARC Cup (a test of multiple off-road skills), and appearances by a number of Land Rover celebrities, including several confirmed Camel Trophy alumni.
Friday night, there's going to be a banquet to celebrate three-quarters of a century of the Best 4x4xFar, and the North American community that has built around Land Rover for the past few decades.
As for lodging, every registration includes primitive camping at the event site at the base of the mountain. There's also a campground with utilities for those bringing RVs or trailers, and a lodge for those who prefer to have a hotel room.
Tickets are now on sale at ANARC's website, anarc.club. All Land Rovers are welcome to join in the fun -- and anyone bringing a Series I or a road-legal running Freelander gets free admission!
