Event Details


2016 WAPA Rally - Thursday, October 13  |  9:00am - 7:00pm

Chesapeake Bay Beach Club  |  Kent Island, MD

Join the Washington Automotive Press Association for the 2016 WAPA Rally! We are planning an exciting and informative annual drive event on the roads just beyond the Chesapeake Bay Bridge on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

This is your opportunity to drive or ride in the latest and greatest cars, trucks and SUVs provided by our automotive partners. For 2016 we plan to have more vehicles to drive, and more drive time available for our members. However we've also planned even more networking time with OEM representatives and fellow WAPA members, as we've added a post-event sunset reception on the Chesapeake Bay to the schedule.

Event fee includes beverages, light breakfast, hearty lunch, reception hors d'oeuvres and a special WAPA gift. We'll also have contests and prizes to add to the fun. You will have much to share with your audience during and after your day of driving fun at the 2016 #WAPARally. We look forward to seeing you there, and don’t forget to invite a prospective new media member to join us for our premier annual event!
