I have my marching orders.  In order to be in Sweden to meet with the customer on Monday morning (and to make a few other plans work), I need to be at the Indy airport to fly out around 11am on Saturday of Funfest.  Given that Effingham is three hours from the Indy airport (2 hrs on the road and one hour of time change), Candi and I will have a very limited time @ Funfest this year.
 
Regardless, we're already paid and we still want to go anyway.  Plan is to go over Thursday afternoon and get registered and see the fun run then be there all day Friday and leave first thing Sat am.
 
Three questions:
 
1.  Who is going that will be there at least by Friday night?
2.  Of those that will be there, who would be interested in dinner @ Neimerg's (assuming the Days Inn isn't cooking)?
 
And here's the one that I can't believe I'm asking
 
3.  How much sacrilege will it be to not drive the Vette to Funfest?
  • With the need to get to the airport on time, a 37 year old car doesn't give me the greatest confidence
  • Since I will be in Europe well over a week, I need a big suitcase - big suitcase plus 74 Corvette Convertible equals oxymoron

I just think this is my best case scenario at this point...

Wow your guna loose some hair over this! I do not mind if you do not drive the vette. LOL 
But seeing you run through the airport like ...what was his name.... OJ would be PRICELESS
So do not call it a trip to funfest just call it Fest.
I'm sure you can make it fun without the car...just act like a wana bee or have that picture of your car out front of MAM put on a tee shirt and wear it there.....Cool

Hey Marshall.......Sorry that your work schedule is conflicting with Funfest.  The customer in Sweden must not realize what is going on in Effingham that weekend.LOL  In my opinion, you are making a monumental effort for the love of CorvettesThumbs Up.
 
I hope to be at Funfest on Friday afternoon, and would be happy to meet you for dinner Friday nite.
Sorry I didn't see this earlier.  I'm sure others will respond.
 
See you in a couple of weeks.
 
Dean

Forgot to mention this in the previous post.  Sorry.
 
I think it would be a tremendous Sacrilege not to drive the 74 convertable to Funfest, HOWEVER, I must admit that I have been to several Funfests without TargaBlue and I have survived.  It takes time to get over it.  As eboEvil Smile says, just get a T shirt and act like a wanna-be.LOL

We will not be able to attend FunFest this year.  Sorry we will not get to see the "gang" this trip.  Maybe we can get an impromtu October Midwest group weekend together.
