2
00:00:06,177 --> 00:00:07,700
- Misselwood Events at Endicott College

3
00:00:07,700 --> 00:00:11,253
has been the event venue for
the college for numerous years.

4
00:00:12,170 --> 00:00:15,640
We do weddings, corporate
outings, clambakes,

5
00:00:15,640 --> 00:00:18,510
social events, we do over
100 events every summer.

6
00:00:18,510 --> 00:00:21,070
And the Misselwood Concours
is our largest event

7
00:00:21,070 --> 00:00:23,800
that we do directly in
the middle of the summer.

8
00:00:23,800 --> 00:00:25,170
It's done each July.

9
00:00:25,170 --> 00:00:29,450
So, the Misselwood Concours
actually started in 2010.

10
00:00:29,450 --> 00:00:32,250
It was also called the North
Shore Concour d'Elegance

11
00:00:32,250 --> 00:00:33,830
for the first three years.

12
00:00:33,830 --> 00:00:36,100
There had been a show
down at the Crane Estate,

13
00:00:36,100 --> 00:00:38,650
another local wedding and event venue,

14
00:00:38,650 --> 00:00:40,460
about eight, 10 miles away.

15
00:00:40,460 --> 00:00:42,720
Some gentlemen were looking
to start a new show,

16
00:00:42,720 --> 00:00:45,130
that one hadn't been in the
area for about eight years.

17
00:00:45,130 --> 00:00:46,830
They landed at Misselwood.

18
00:00:46,830 --> 00:00:49,990
We started doing a show
for about 50 or 60 cars,

19
00:00:49,990 --> 00:00:52,260
mostly people from Massachusetts.

20
00:00:52,260 --> 00:00:54,060
And we wanted to see where it would go.

21
00:00:54,060 --> 00:00:56,660
And 10 years later, we've
had car owners coming

22
00:00:56,660 --> 00:00:59,350
from, close to 18 different states

23
00:00:59,350 --> 00:01:02,010
and we are recognized show
throughout the country now.

24
00:01:02,010 --> 00:01:05,170
The Misselwood Concours is
a scholarship fundraiser

25
00:01:05,170 --> 00:01:06,090
for Endicott college.

26
00:01:06,090 --> 00:01:09,340
It's the only event that we
do that isn't for profit.

27
00:01:09,340 --> 00:01:11,310
It is for scholarships.

28
00:01:11,310 --> 00:01:13,610
And we've been doing that for 10 years.

29
00:01:13,610 --> 00:01:15,210
This would have been the 11th year.

30
00:01:15,210 --> 00:01:19,560
Over the years, we're
getting close to the $200,000

31
00:01:19,560 --> 00:01:21,955
mark of funds that we've raised.

32
00:01:21,955 --> 00:01:24,320
We phrased close to $200,000
in scholarship funds

33
00:01:24,320 --> 00:01:25,330
over the years.

34
00:01:25,330 --> 00:01:27,860
Early on, we had had a dedicated school

35
00:01:27,860 --> 00:01:30,760
of hospitality scholarship
that we'd given out

36
00:01:30,760 --> 00:01:32,450
for the first few years.

37
00:01:32,450 --> 00:01:34,980
At one point, we decided to
make it an endowed scholarship

38
00:01:34,980 --> 00:01:37,310
fund and let the college use the funds

39
00:01:37,310 --> 00:01:38,950
where they needed to for certain students.

40
00:01:38,950 --> 00:01:41,880
So, all students have
been benefiting in a way

41
00:01:41,880 --> 00:01:43,670
that needs scholarship money for the last

42
00:01:43,670 --> 00:01:44,730
probably five years.

43
00:01:44,730 --> 00:01:47,000
We've given a lot of the
students great opportunity

44
00:01:47,000 --> 00:01:49,160
to work with us and learn about the show

45
00:01:49,160 --> 00:01:50,880
and how to run a large event.

46
00:01:50,880 --> 00:01:54,290
And at the same time, we're
giving back to them financially.

47
00:01:54,290 --> 00:01:56,830
And we only hope that will
increase in the next 10 years

48
00:01:56,830 --> 00:02:00,340
that, we can hit the $500,000 mark

49
00:02:00,340 --> 00:02:03,950
sooner rather than later,
and really help the students

50
00:02:03,950 --> 00:02:05,280
as much as we can.

51
00:02:05,280 --> 00:02:07,710
Another unique part of our event
is we try to have a weekend

52
00:02:07,710 --> 00:02:10,240
of events where we have a driving tour,

53
00:02:10,240 --> 00:02:12,530
we have a welcome reception and dinner.

54
00:02:12,530 --> 00:02:15,390
And the day of the show
we have two fashion shows.

55
00:02:15,390 --> 00:02:19,750
We have food trucks and
vendors, live music,

56
00:02:19,750 --> 00:02:23,300
artwork, we have a good
mix of things for everyone.

57
00:02:23,300 --> 00:02:25,150
We like to see families come.

58
00:02:25,150 --> 00:02:27,750
Children under the age of
12 are free with an adult.

59
00:02:28,950 --> 00:02:30,240
We want to make it an event.

60
00:02:30,240 --> 00:02:31,150
It's about the cars.

61
00:02:31,150 --> 00:02:32,740
It's about learning
about them, the history,

62
00:02:32,740 --> 00:02:36,350
but it's also about a fun
time to spend on our property.

63
00:02:36,350 --> 00:02:37,630
See what Misselwood's doing,

64
00:02:37,630 --> 00:02:39,870
see what Endicott College is doing.

65
00:02:39,870 --> 00:02:43,070
And just make it a fun family
outing, a fun day for people.

66
00:02:43,070 --> 00:02:46,650
And then you add in these
unique historic cars.

67
00:02:46,650 --> 00:02:48,490
I mean, everything else that's going on,

68
00:02:48,490 --> 00:02:50,840
it's a really fun day by the ocean.

69
00:02:50,840 --> 00:02:52,830
So another thing that makes
the Misselwood Concours

70
00:02:52,830 --> 00:02:57,830
so special is, we call ourselves
an intimate boutique show.

71
00:02:57,950 --> 00:03:01,140
We have typically 100
plus cars and motorcycles

72
00:03:01,140 --> 00:03:04,950
on the property and we put
them every single space

73
00:03:04,950 --> 00:03:05,830
you could imagine.

74
00:03:05,830 --> 00:03:07,690
It's a four and a half acre estate.

75
00:03:07,690 --> 00:03:09,040
There's rolling hills.

76
00:03:09,040 --> 00:03:09,910
It's a beautiful place.

77
00:03:09,910 --> 00:03:12,300
But you know, we're not
going to fit 200, 300 cars

78
00:03:12,300 --> 00:03:13,650
like some other shows.

79
00:03:13,650 --> 00:03:14,740
And we're never going to have barriers

80
00:03:14,740 --> 00:03:15,880
between you and the car.

81
00:03:15,880 --> 00:03:17,660
People can walk up to car owners here

82
00:03:17,660 --> 00:03:19,540
and feel comfortable talking to them.

83
00:03:19,540 --> 00:03:22,130
They can walk around the
property and see every car.

84
00:03:22,130 --> 00:03:23,980
They can take pictures with the cars.

85
00:03:23,980 --> 00:03:25,380
A lot of shows I've been to,

86
00:03:26,310 --> 00:03:30,000
sometimes there's 15,
20,000 people and it's hard.

87
00:03:30,000 --> 00:03:31,210
You'll never see a car owner.

88
00:03:31,210 --> 00:03:32,520
It's hard to find them.

89
00:03:32,520 --> 00:03:33,790
It's hard to get pictures of the cars,

90
00:03:33,790 --> 00:03:35,650
but here it's intimate, it's special.

91
00:03:35,650 --> 00:03:37,470
You can see the cars up close,

92
00:03:37,470 --> 00:03:39,420
you can touch them,
and get inside of them.

93
00:03:39,420 --> 00:03:41,500
I think that really makes a difference.

94
00:03:41,500 --> 00:03:43,620
You can hear them run,
you can even walk around,

95
00:03:43,620 --> 00:03:44,970
and you can enjoy the ocean view.

96
00:03:44,970 --> 00:03:46,250
So even if you don't like cars,

97
00:03:46,250 --> 00:03:48,390
you know, we've had many
people come and say,

98
00:03:48,390 --> 00:03:51,560
they'd spend the money just
to come in for the view.

99
00:03:51,560 --> 00:03:52,880
And you know, we have
some people come just

100
00:03:52,880 --> 00:03:53,713
for the fashion show.

101
00:03:53,713 --> 00:03:56,520
They just want to see the
fashion show by the ocean.

102
00:03:56,520 --> 00:03:59,883
So there's many aspects
that really make it intimate

103
00:03:59,883 --> 00:04:01,120
and unique here.

104
00:04:01,120 --> 00:04:02,600
And like I said, we're
never going to have,

105
00:04:02,600 --> 00:04:04,350
we can't increase the
size of the property,

106
00:04:04,350 --> 00:04:07,570
so it's always going to be
this special, intimate show.

107
00:04:07,570 --> 00:04:10,270
Every year, the quality
of the cars continues

108
00:04:10,270 --> 00:04:11,570
to go up to another level.

109
00:04:11,570 --> 00:04:15,483
We've had cars that have won
multiple awards at other shows.

110
00:04:15,483 --> 00:04:17,420
There's special cars that come.

111
00:04:17,420 --> 00:04:19,200
So we'll increase the quality of the cars,

112
00:04:19,200 --> 00:04:21,700
but the space is, we do
what we can with the space,

113
00:04:21,700 --> 00:04:24,430
and I think that's probably
a benefit to this show

114
00:04:24,430 --> 00:04:27,170
is that we can't have 200, 300 cars.

115
00:04:27,170 --> 00:04:30,840
We can only have a hundred and
we're selective on the cars

116
00:04:30,840 --> 00:04:31,700
that we bring here.

117
00:04:31,700 --> 00:04:32,740
And I think that shows,

118
00:04:32,740 --> 00:04:35,820
and it's a special, special
atmosphere once you're here.

119
00:04:35,820 --> 00:04:38,240
You can take your kids up
to the cars and get inside.

120
00:04:38,240 --> 00:04:39,480
And like I said, it's just,

121
00:04:39,480 --> 00:04:41,250
it makes it that much more special.

1
00:00:00,158 --> 00:00:03,241
(gentle piano music)

2
00:00:06,177 --> 00:00:07,700
- Misselwood Events at Endicott College

3
00:00:07,700 --> 00:00:11,253
has been the event venue for
the college for numerous years.

4
00:00:12,170 --> 00:00:15,640
We do weddings, corporate
outings, clambakes,

5
00:00:15,640 --> 00:00:18,510
social events, we do over
100 events every summer.

6
00:00:18,510 --> 00:00:21,070
And the Misselwood Concours
is our largest event

7
00:00:21,070 --> 00:00:23,800
that we do directly in
the middle of the summer.

8
00:00:23,800 --> 00:00:25,170
It's done each July.

9
00:00:25,170 --> 00:00:29,450
So, the Misselwood Concours
actually started in 2010.

10
00:00:29,450 --> 00:00:32,250
It was also called the North
Shore Concour d'Elegance

11
00:00:32,250 --> 00:00:33,830
for the first three years.

12
00:00:33,830 --> 00:00:36,100
There had been a show
down at the Crane Estate,

13
00:00:36,100 --> 00:00:38,650
another local wedding and event venue,

14
00:00:38,650 --> 00:00:40,460
about eight, 10 miles away.

15
00:00:40,460 --> 00:00:42,720
Some gentlemen were looking
to start a new show,

16
00:00:42,720 --> 00:00:45,130
that one hadn't been in the
area for about eight years.

17
00:00:45,130 --> 00:00:46,830
They landed at Misselwood.

18
00:00:46,830 --> 00:00:49,990
We started doing a show
for about 50 or 60 cars,

19
00:00:49,990 --> 00:00:52,260
mostly people from Massachusetts.

20
00:00:52,260 --> 00:00:54,060
And we wanted to see where it would go.

21
00:00:54,060 --> 00:00:56,660
And 10 years later, we've
had car owners coming

22
00:00:56,660 --> 00:00:59,350
from, close to 18 different states

23
00:00:59,350 --> 00:01:02,010
and we are recognized show
throughout the country now.

24
00:01:02,010 --> 00:01:05,170
The Misselwood Concours is
a scholarship fundraiser

25
00:01:05,170 --> 00:01:06,090
for Endicott college.

26
00:01:06,090 --> 00:01:09,340
It's the only event that we
do that isn't for profit.

27
00:01:09,340 --> 00:01:11,310
It is for scholarships.

28
00:01:11,310 --> 00:01:13,610
And we've been doing that for 10 years.

29
00:01:13,610 --> 00:01:15,210
This would have been the 11th year.

30
00:01:15,210 --> 00:01:19,560
Over the years, we're
getting close to the $200,000

31
00:01:19,560 --> 00:01:21,955
mark of funds that we've raised.

32
00:01:21,955 --> 00:01:24,320
We phrased close to $200,000
in scholarship funds

33
00:01:24,320 --> 00:01:25,330
over the years.

34
00:01:25,330 --> 00:01:27,860
Early on, we had had a dedicated school

35
00:01:27,860 --> 00:01:30,760

36
00:01:30,760 --> 00:01:32,450

where they needed to for certain students.

40
00:01:38,950 --> 00:01:41,880
So, all students have
been benefiting in a way

41
00:01:41,880 --> 00:01:43,670
that needs scholarship money for the last

42
00:01:43,670 --> 00:01:44,730
probably five years.

43
00:01:44,730 --> 00:01:47,000
We've given a lot of the
students great opportunity

44
00:01:47,000 --> 00:01:49,160
to work with us and learn about the show

45
00:01:49,160 --> 00:01:50,880
and how to run a large event.

46
00:01:50,880 --> 00:01:54,290
And at the same time, we're
giving back to them financially.

47
00:01:54,290 --> 00:01:56,830
And we only hope that will
increase in the next 10 years

48
00:01:56,830 --> 00:02:00,340
that, we can hit the $500,000 mark

49
00:02:00,340 --> 00:02:03,950
sooner rather than later,
and really help the students

50
00:02:03,950 --> 00:02:05,280
as much as we can.

51
00:02:05,280 --> 00:02:07,710
Another unique part of our event
is we try to have a weekend

52
00:02:07,710 --> 00:02:10,240
of events where we have a driving tour,

53
00:02:10,240 --> 00:02:12,530
we have a welcome reception and dinner.

54
00:02:12,530 --> 00:02:15,390
And the day of the show
we have two fashion shows.

55
00:02:15,390 --> 00:02:19,750
We have food trucks and
vendors, live music,

56
00:02:19,750 --> 00:02:23,300
artwork, we have a good
mix of things for everyone.

57
00:02:23,300 --> 00:02:25,150
We like to see families come.

58
00:02:25,150 --> 00:02:27,750
Children under the age of
12 are free with an adult.

59
00:02:28,950 --> 00:02:30,240
We want to make it an event.

60
00:02:30,240 --> 00:02:31,150
It's about the cars.

61
00:02:31,150 --> 00:02:32,740
It's about learning
about them, the history,

62
00:02:32,740 --> 00:02:36,350
but it's also about a fun
time to spend on our property.

63
00:02:36,350 --> 00:02:37,630
See what Misselwood's doing,

64
00:02:37,630 --> 00:02:39,870
see what Endicott College is doing.

65
00:02:39,870 --> 00:02:43,070
And just make it a fun family
outing, a fun day for people.

66
00:02:43,070 --> 00:02:46,650
And then you add in these
unique historic cars.

67
00:02:46,650 --> 00:02:48,490
I mean, everything else that's going on,

68
00:02:48,490 --> 00:02:50,840
it's a really fun day by the ocean.

69
00:02:50,840 --> 00:02:52,830
So another thing that makes
the Misselwood Concours

70
00:02:52,830 --> 00:02:57,830
so special is, we call ourselves
an intimate boutique show.

71
00:02:57,950 --> 00:03:01,140
We have typically 100
plus cars and motorcycles

72
00:03:01,140 --> 00:03:04,950
on the property and we put
them every single space

73
00:03:04,950 --> 00:03:05,830
you could imagine.

74
00:03:05,830 --> 00:03:07,690
It's a four and a half acre estate.

75
00:03:07,690 --> 00:03:09,040
There's rolling hills.

76
00:03:09,040 --> 00:03:09,910
It's a beautiful place.

77
00:03:09,910 --> 00:03:12,300
But you know, we're not
going to fit 200, 300 cars

78
00:03:12,300 --> 00:03:13,650
like some other shows.

79
00:03:13,650 --> 00:03:14,740
And we're never going to have barriers

80
00:03:14,740 --> 00:03:15,880
between you and the car.

81
00:03:15,880 --> 00:03:17,660
People can walk up to car owners here

82
00:03:17,660 --> 00:03:19,540
and feel comfortable talking to them.

83
00:03:19,540 --> 00:03:22,130
They can walk around the
property and see every car.

84
00:03:22,130 --> 00:03:23,980
They can take pictures with the cars.

85
00:03:23,980 --> 00:03:25,380
A lot of shows I've been to,

86
00:03:26,310 --> 00:03:30,000
sometimes there's 15,
20,000 people and it's hard.

87
00:03:30,000 --> 00:03:31,210
You'll never see a car owner.

88
00:03:31,210 --> 00:03:32,520
It's hard to find them.

89
00:03:32,520 --> 00:03:33,790
It's hard to get pictures of the cars,

90
00:03:33,790 --> 00:03:35,650
but here it's intimate, it's special.

91
00:03:35,650 --> 00:03:37,470
You can see the cars up close,

92
00:03:37,470 --> 00:03:39,420
you can touch them,
and get inside of them.

93
00:03:39,420 --> 00:03:41,500
I think that really makes a difference.

94
00:03:41,500 --> 00:03:43,620
You can hear them run,
you can even walk around,

95
00:03:43,620 --> 00:03:44,970
and you can enjoy the ocean view.

96
00:03:44,970 --> 00:03:46,250
So even if you don't like cars,

97
00:03:46,250 --> 00:03:48,390
you know, we've had many
people come and say,

98
00:03:48,390 --> 00:03:51,560
they'd spend the money just
to come in for the view.

99
00:03:51,560 --> 00:03:52,880
And you know, we have
some people come just

100
00:03:52,880 --> 00:03:53,713
for the fashion show.

101
00:03:53,713 --> 00:03:56,520
They just want to see the
fashion show by the ocean.

102
00:03:56,520 --> 00:03:59,883
So there's many aspects
that really make it intimate

103
00:03:59,883 --> 00:04:01,120
and unique here.

104
00:04:01,120 --> 00:04:02,600
And like I said, we're
never going to have,

105
00:04:02,600 --> 00:04:04,350
we can't increase the
size of the property,

106
00:04:04,350 --> 00:04:07,570
so it's always going to be
this special, intimate show.

107
00:04:07,570 --> 00:04:10,270
Every year, the quality
of the cars continues

108
00:04:10,270 --> 00:04:11,570
to go up to another level.

109
00:04:11,570 --> 00:04:15,483
We've had cars that have won
multiple awards at other shows.

110
00:04:15,483 --> 00:04:17,420
There's special cars that come.

111
00:04:17,420 --> 00:04:19,200
So we'll increase the quality of the cars,

112
00:04:19,200 --> 00:04:21,700
but the space is, we do
what we can with the space,

113
00:04:21,700 --> 00:04:24,430
and I think that's probably
a benefit to this show

114
00:04:24,430 --> 00:04:27,170
is that we can't have 200, 300 cars.

115
00:04:27,170 --> 00:04:30,840
We can only have a hundred and
we're selective on the cars

116
00:04:30,840 --> 00:04:31,700
that we bring here.

117
00:04:31,700 --> 00:04:32,740
And I think that shows,

118
00:04:32,740 --> 00:04:35,820
and it's a special, special
atmosphere once you're here.

119
00:04:35,820 --> 00:04:38,240
You can take your kids up
to the cars and get inside.

120
00:04:38,240 --> 00:04:39,480
And like I said, it's just,

121
00:04:39,480 --> 00:04:41,250
it makes it that much more special.
