[QUOTE=cj5nutz] Jim did you find anyone to help you set up on Thursday yet?[/QUOTE]

Not yet.  Is your offer still open?  I'm not sure exactly when I'll arrive in Effingham but I want to be there before they close up shop for the day.

Thanks for the reply Butch!

Jim,

I had e-mailed Adam previously asking if we might have 3 additional spaces for 4 of my local clan. (2 of which are Stingrays) At that time it was limited to our group numbers. After reading this thread today is there any chance of them joining our area?
Yes I also have the printed parking passes as well THANKS!!!

Larry - thanks for the reply.  Look for a PM that I sent your way.

btw - for all registered C3VR club parkers:  Look for a RED CANOPY with a C3VR banner flying and "The Toy" nearby.  The parking volunteers should point you in the right direction.

Larry - here's the reply I received regarding adding more cars to our club parking space:

[QUOTE=Bonnie] Hi Jim. I hate to say no, but at this time I feel that is the best answer. We have mapped out all the clubs in the parking field and accounted for your last count. Hope the others are not too disappointed! The club field is going to be awesome this year. We have had a tremendous response. There are 45 clubs altogether which account for 1,032 cars!!

See you in a few days. Youíre going to have a GREAT time! [/QUOTE]

Thanks (again) to assistance from Scott (cj5nutz) and Butch and Jane (butch's vettes) the C3VR Club Parking tent is setup and ready to go.        We're located straight in from Gate 4 (but you have to enter at Gate 5).  At the end of the blacktop look to your left for a RED TENT in the second row (there's a C3VR banner hanging on it also).

So if you need a spot to get out of the sun for a bit stop by and enjoy the shade...!!!

Turned out we had the only RED tent in the entire club parking area!  Here's what it looked like Friday morning after a few folks had arrived (click on each photo to see a larger version).
 
 
 
On Saturday there were over a 1,000 cars from 45 clubs parked out there.  It sure was easy to spot the C3VR tent...!!!

Club parking in general was kind of sparse on Friday but jammed on Saturday.  There were a couple more C3VR member cars on Saturday and several more members who either parked with other clubs or parked in the general parking area.
 
On MAM's website the last numbers I saw for the weekend put the car count at around 14,000 and the people count at around 60,000.  That's a bunch of Corvette enthusiasts...!!!
