About Us

The GRCA National Specialty traverses the country, cycling through the Eastern, Central, and Western regions in each successive year. For each of 82 years, The GRCA National has been hosted by one of our many local clubs. In part, due to the logistical challenges of taking on the ever-increasingly complex GRCA National, along with the potential benefit of having a consistent National leadership model in place, in 2021, GRCA assumed the National Specialty leadership role to begin in planning the 2023 GRCA National Specialty.
