We parked in club parking last year & that was GREAT! Gave us VIP access to and from the show. This was especially good after the Beach Boys Concert!

I am hoping to go on the 16th. I'm not sure what the calendar is looking like. I need to pick up some parts so I will drive my truck there so I can haul them back. It'll be kind of hard to bring back a front and rear bumper, leave springs, seat backs, e-brake console, carpeting etc. Besides, I should be saving some money on shipping.

I moved this thread to the National & International events forum because it really is an international event (it just happens to be held in the Midwest Region). 

I started a thread back in January (MAM FunFest - 2006) about the event and will be setting up a couple more in the near future to get names and contact info about who will be attending and who can help man the C3VR tent.

Hope to see as many C3VR members as possible while there.  btw - the closest room I could book was in Mattoon which is about 30 miles north of Effingham.

Its hard to find a room  near by if you have never been . Keep calling the hotels and check for cancellations . Once you get in one then you can reserve it each year thereafter. We got ours because of the hurricanes two years ago and several people canceled, now we are preferred guests because we stayed the year before. Makes me wonder about those poor folks that canceled, where are they staying now?

It is well worth the effort to be there !

Rather than start another thread about who'll be there I thought it would be easier to "commandeer" this one...!!!     

If you have already replied to this thread please update your entry with:
- your name and the names of folks with you,
- where you will be staying,
- when you plan to arrive, and
- when you plan to head for home. 

Between Scott and I we'll keep the list at the top of the thread updated as best we can.

Thanks!

My wife and I stayed here the 1st year that we went to Funfest.

http://www.timberslodge.com/

It was excellant with the exception you have a shared bathroom down the hall from your room. It is great if you are traveling with a group.
restraunt is good as well. we went back last yesr as a group and ate there and found it to still be good. They serve home style cooking.

71 is now running again. Someone has been in the wiring harness that should not have been there ..   

For those of you that have never been ... Funfest is not just a bunch of Corvettes in a field. This is REO Speedwagon, this is Corvette Mania, This is Corvette Heaven for just these few days a year.

Pack your bags , quit your jobs , rent your kids out for a weekend and join us for the Corvette Party of the year !
