Yes what Bob said and I'd like to add........................
It's good to have a hat with ya and wear sun screen if you tend to sun burn, Sunglasses (to check out the babes), a good folding chair and I think we all got extras if ya need one, bring some water or soda in a small insulated lunch bag if ya got one (saves ya buying something ta drink), extra few buck (5,10,or 20) if ya want to buy raffle tickets for givaways, a camera (of course), dusters & detail stuff for your Vette, and most important a smile.

Thanks I will do that.

Now what does one mean when you say "detail stuff"?

Would it look REAL stupid if I just wash it and drive it?

How seriously do most take this stuff?

Detail stuff to bring is as simple as a car duster or if you are Mark, quick detail spray, detail lint free towels, window cleaner, window lint free towels, a soft detail brush, and a serious look on your face. LOL (just messin' with ya Mark) Seriously if you bring a clean Vette that's good, a duster helps depending on the location and how much dust is in the air and the darker the color the more likely you'll need a duster.

No offense taken Aaron, I'm probably the only serious one.  Constantly dusting, setting up displays, and shooting more BS then normal LOL  Nah, I just love showing off the car and stuff I've collected. 
 
John if you want me to bring you a chair shoot me a PM.  This show isn't too far  from my house.
 
And yes, please wash your car LOL  We wouldn't want to have to make you park over by the Hugo's.  Like Aaron said, just bring a duster, and towel and detail spray if your that serious.  These shows are mainly for a chance to get together and chat, check out other cars, people watch (woman watch if your in the area) and just have a good ole time.

Right on.
I will be there.

The BS, I'm down with that. Babe watching, well thats cool too.
(It is Lacey though, aint like we'll be in Seattle!)

I will bring a chair, and a towel to wash off any bugs I get on the car on the way.

My car looks reasonable, drives great but has one feature that makes it way cool.

ITS MINE!

Looking forward to it.

We are a definite yes!!
We will be there. I have a feeling that parking may go kinda quick. So the earlier we are there the better. I wouldn't want to be much later than 8:30.
 
Sounds like we will have a good crowd from our group. It will make for some good pictures to have so many C3's parked together.
 
 
Link to a google map of the park. The satellite view gives you the best view.

Looks like we have 3 Red Vettes and 3 Black Vettes (unless we count Mark's as half Black) and then Mike & Karen's Vette if they join us (what color is it?). So we need to park Black, Red, Black (you get the picture) with Mark's on an open end (to lead the Pace LOL).

really bummed i can't make this show. Mark wrapping your vette in clear shrink wrap does not really make you a serious car show guy, just a little strange.  An a what is all the talk about sun screen, you trying to start something with the raccoon clan. JT be careful if you are standing next to Bob (RRAIDER) and there is a light pole and a socket, cuz he'll do something that will make you laugh so hard you'll end up hurting yourself, enough said on that one.  Todd from my house to portland is 2 and 1/2 hours.  Someone bringing the Banner if not let me know and JT can come and get mine/ours...  If there is any way I can make it I will try to make it, but don't hold your breath.

Welcome to the rafterman, glad to see another local crazy vette head. do you like BBQ?

Larry

Larry you gonna miss our last fling for the summer Question  Sure hope you can make it, for someway, somehow. you seem to bring life to the party, maybe it's the lampshade hat or something I don't know.
 
Red, Black, Red, Black works for me LOL
 
Looks like I maybe alittle late.  We are getting a new contract driver and he seems to want to drive the scheduled route.  I had talked the old driver into stopping at our P.O. first so that I can start at 3:30am.  Now this new driver wants to follow the correct route and bring the mail at like 5am, what the hell. 
 
If I am late ya'll need to save me a parking spot.
