I got reservations for the plant tour on Sept. 2nd at 9:00 am.  Looks like I got in just under the wire before it filled up.  I did let them know I was part of the C3VR group.  I saw some comments on private tours for groups over 20, but don't know if we have that many folks signed up.
 
I live in Ark and will be joining the OKC / So. Cal. group as they pass through Van Buren, AR on Sept 1st.  Sounds like some others of us will also be in that caravan.
 
Trying to get the wife to join me on the trip.  She is somewhat interested buts wants to lodge in the Nashville/Bowling Green area.  I think she wants to shop vs. get involved in the vette activities.  Am trying to go through Gorilla Travel option for lodging which was recommended by our Arkansas Captain.  Will let you know how or if that works out.
 
Looking forward to meeting all of you.
 
Pat

Pat;
 
Looking forward to meeting you.  There will be several C3VR wives on this one I suspect. 
 
It may be a blessing to be staying 25 miles out, if you are trying to get around away from the museum.
 
Any recommendations for hotels in the Little Rock area that are reasonable?  (Choice hotels or Motel 6's?)

My g/f and I have been registered for this event since mid '07. Just found a hotel room last month about 8 miles from the NCM for 4 nights. We'll be caravaning from Florida, starting out in Titusville, matching up with any other caravan, and eventually ending up in Tampa (Ferman Cheverolet), where the caravan for the national run to the NCM begins. Its my understanding Andy Pilgrim will again be the 'Grand Marshall' again for the Florida caravan. I'll be taking the '06 to this party...don't want to 'wear' myself out with the g/f and all that we have to pack in the '82! After all these years, I don't think that car is made for trips like this any longer! LOL
 
I expect no less than a good time, but I do expect traffic delays caused by a bucket load of Corvettes. Now, given the traffic situation, would you rather be stuck in traffic for one or two hours staring at nothing but Corvettes or other typical road hazard foreign crap? Tongue

Well, maybe I will be lucky enough and drive most of the way with Nordsky.  Do not know if T.J. is going or not.  I'll keep you guys posted.
