That would be great Kelly of course Scott and I would both love to know before you post but your asking your son to take the time from his drive to do this is commendable and I thank you for that.

Looking forward to working with you and your Arlene at the booth.

                             take care, Tux...

Well bad news on the motel the only one new this year is the "fairfield inn" and it is already booked and has a waiting list. I called the chamber of commerce in Effingham and the pretty much said the same thing.

Anyone looking for a hotel ? Try calling MId-Am, They booked all of the rooms at the new Fairfield way before it was finished. The only way to get one if still available is to call them direct. good luck!

    Well registered today and planning to do the walk. Time off has been at a premium lately, but my boss said to use personnal time. You don't need to ask in advance-just take it when you want it. Donna and I are planning to attend. Gotta find a room somewhere - any ideas?

Try the Super8 in Mattoon.  I stayed there last year.  It's an ok place and about a 30 minute drive north of Effingham.

Since it seems that finding a place (like a motel) close to the funfest is next to impossible, anyone know if camping on the grounds is an option?  Has anyone tried it in the past??

staying on the grounds is okay, there are always a dozen motorhomes a couple of campers and a few tents in the back lot. Its hot during the day but is fairly cool at night.

...anything like..say...porta-poops in the camping area?  I'm guessing something like a shower is asking way too much (would be nice to stay somewhat fresh...don't want to project the wrong image for C3 owners).  It might be interesting to talk to someone that towed a camper with a corvette...not too sure about someone that would drive a motorhome to a corvette gathering..kinda reminds me of the guys who truck their bikes to Daytona for bike week..something just isn't right..

As it gets closer to the date , keep calling the hotels. The way I got mine two years ago was  with a late cancellation. Now I have a place to stay close.  I always make plans close to a year ahead for what I am doing the next year, you would not believe how many get cancelled LOL

Lake Sara has an excellant campgrond on it and it is seldom used as well. We stayed at the Tibers Lodge the 1st year we went and visited the campground. It was clean and nice. Being an avid camper I wouldn't hesitate to stay there if the price was right. Here are a couple of campground numbers if you choose to go this route and stay off MAM grounds.


Camping

Camp Lakewood
1217 W. Rickelman Ave., Effingham 217-342-6233
19 acre campground with lake. Water, sewer, electricity, cable TV, Fishing, Game Room, Picnic tables, playground, horseshoe pit. Laundromat, showers, store, gift shop.

Lake Sara Camp Ground
Beach Road, Lake Sara, 217-868-2964

Thanks so much for the camping info!!  BTW, I just received a mailing from MAM that says the club parking entrance is Gate 5, and that display tags are required. I'm guessing that MAM will send these things to Adam, and then he is gonna mail 'em to us.  Is this how did it worked last year, or are the display tags something new?

What they are referring to is the Fun Display Judging sticker that you will receive in the mail after you have preregistered.

This sticker has the Funfest Logo on it along with the year of your car, your registration number, name and mailing address on it. This needs to be placed on the upper drivers side corner of your windsheild.

There have not been any tags for club parking in the years past. Just head for that gate and they will direct you to your parking area. Keep in mind this can change as each year Funfest gets larger and Mikes team keeps trying to improve the gathering experience as a whole.

Adam or someone will know what this area is and may post that later. Mid America typically will let the club parking organizer know in advance where this will be.
