Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance
The 2016 edition of the Amelia Island Concours was the warm-up for the 2017 edition.
A year ago, in 2016, the Amelia Island Concours was shortened due to threats of rain. The event, which is held on Daylight Savings Time - meaning there are 23 hours in the day - condensed the day's activities so that there would be time for a successful conclusion of the awards ceremonies.
If 2016 did not prove challenging to the show organizers, 2017 certainly made an impact. With weather forecasts predicting 90-percent likelihood of precipitation and poor weather for the day of the show, the organizers made the decision to hold the event a day early (on Saturday, March 11 instead of Sunday, March 12). This was a bold and monumental decision as meteorologists only provide projections of possible weather conditions. The decision would later prove to be the correct gamble.
