2014 NYC Convention Updated 01/14/2014

Happy New Year!

I Checker NY

The December 31 deadline for getting the club discount at the Box House Hotel has now passed. As some of you know, we sold out the block of rooms that were allotted to us and a wait list was started by the hotel. The wait list is not there in the hopes that someone will cancel their reservation. Rather, it is a temporary measure to allow the Box House to assign another set of rooms. Everyone who got their name on the list by December 31 will receive the discounted hotel rate.

From now until the end of May, we will be getting a new block of rooms that, most likely, will be in a new hotel also owned by Joe Torres. While it is in walking distance of the Box House, you can either use your own car or ask the hotel to give you a ride using their own Checkers. We will give you the new rates as soon as they are negotiated. Please note that the hotel does not yet have a name. So, they won't be able to tell you where you are staying until this is finalized.

2014 NYC Convention Updated 11/26/2013

The New York City host committee is pleased to announce that the plans for the June 19-22, 2014 convention are in full swing.

Our events will start on Thursday afternoon with a walking tour of the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. This will also be the day that the "Checker Corral" parking area will open on Box Street. On Friday, there will be two separate tours of NY taxi garages and a walking tour of downtown Manhattan, the Financial District and the World Trade Center site. These will be followed by a Checker Block Party outside our home base, the Box House Hotel, and will be open to the public. On Saturday, we will take our beloved vehicles into Manhattan and show them off at a second Checker Block Party on 25th Street off Lexington Avenue. This will also be open to the public. In addition, there will also be a tour of Chelsea, the Meat Packing District and the High Line. As usual, Saturday night will be reserved for our 'members-only' banquet, silent auction and awards ceremony.

We look forward to seeing you at this existing event. For now, please remember to make your hotel reservations by the end of this year (December 31, 2013). Our $100 plus tax daily rate (June 19-22, 2014) is only guaranteed until that time! If you plan to stay longer either before or after the convention, our daily rate is $209 plus tax. This rate is also guaranteed until December 31. Both rates will be much higher after December 31.

Checker Club’s 2014 convention heading to New York City

Daniel Strohl Nov 1st, 2013 at 8am From Hemmings Daily

Though the company called Kalamazoo home and the club includes members all around the world, New York City is the place that made the Checker as recognizable as it is today, and to the Big Apple the Checker Car Club of America will travel for its national convention next year.

While a sizable order for taxis for a Chicago cab company prompted the formation of the company that would become Checker Motors in 1921, within a couple years the company went on to establish sales operations in New York City and, according to James Hinckley’s book, Checker Cab Co. Photo History, Checker went on to sell more than 2,000 cabs in New York over its first couple of years – about half of its total production.
