    This form is for OEM members to register vehicles for competition. Upon completion, you may pay online using a credit card or request an invoice to pay by check.

    GAAMA is pleased to invite our members to the fourth-annual Family Car Challenge at Lake Lanier Islands Resort. 



    We'll identify the best new vehicles through test drives along the scenic shores of Lake Lanier. Your expert opinions will determine the winners, including our newest award for Best Family Pickup Truck.

    Media members receive a complimentary stay at Legacy Lodge one the night of May 18 GAAMA's reserved block of rooms ends April 18. After April 18, room availability is first come-first served. Register promptly for the best availability. 


    In each of its first three years, Family Car Challenge introduced dozens of GAAMA's media members to the newest products from top brands. This year will be even better.

    In addition to registering attendees here, we encourage you to register vehicles for competition.

    Accommodations for non-media members can be arranged through Legacy Lodge. Call 770-945-8787 to book a room under GAAMA's group discount, or book online here.
