Sept. 15-16 Effingham, Illinois.

Last year they had 8,230 Vettes show up. Who's going this year??

I called Mid-America about a Z06 Corral, but due to limited parking, they will not have a corral for ANY groups. Next year they will have more land for parking and said they can host us then.

So...I'm going on the 15th of Sept. Can we all meet for like breakfast in Effinham and then drive to the event?? That way we will all be together.

What are your opinions? Who wants to go??

You know I'm there. Once we get a number for breakfast, I'll give you a name of a good place to meet for it. 20 to 30 should not be a problem.

If someone could get my damn order pushed through, I would definitely make it. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_flaming.gif

I went last year for the first time and it was a blast. I got up there all early thinking I would get into the "MY" special parking spots. WRONG!!! Hopefully they'll have a much bigger spot for hte Z06 corrall next year..........

Count me in for Saturday. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I just pre-registered, http://www.madirect.com/Madvet/funfestreg/MADFunReg.asp

Looks like the local hotels are all booked up, but I got a room for Friday in Casey about 32 miles away.

Frank, meeting for breakfast sounds good. What time & where do you guys want to meet up?

My pit crew (my wife and my three sons) will be coming in our Suburban.
Do you guys know, is there any place for them to park near the fun fest?

How about a Z06vette booth, probobly to late to set up now but that is some thing to think about for future events. Banners, T-shirts, etc.
Got to hit em and hit em hard.

Pat, you should be able to have the "pit crew" park across the road from Mid America. There is a strip of land between highway and RR tracks that they usually let non vettes park in.

Zippy, sorry to hear that you and Mrs. Zippy won't be making it. Maybe next year!!

JC, were is that plane ticket flying into? Have you tried Indy, its only 2 hours from airport to E-ham.

Thanks for the parking tip Kevin. My pit crew is going to go nuts with all of the Corvettes on display.

I hope the weather holds out for us, the 10 day forecast (for whatever its worth :roll: ) says mostly sunny, high of 80 degrees.

Sorry you won't be making it Zippy. :(
Any interest in the Route 66 Raceway Corvette Show Oct 4-7?
