I know September seems a long way off, but Funfest 2009 Registration is now open!  Unfortunately, Mike Yager has decided to charge for registration this year, but prices start as low as $25 for the weekend - still a bargain!  My hotel reservation has been made for a couple of months now.
 
Different options are available, including special parking and such.  Personally, while I love parking with the C3VR folks, I did sign up for special parking for '74's to celebrate MAM's 35 years in business.  They also will have parking for the 9's (59, 69, 79, etc) cars.
 
I look forward to seeing all of you there!  Registration prices do go up as of July 15th.
 
Adam, you can sign me up for the booth NOW!
 
Are we there yet?!?!?!

...most likely I will make the trip again this year; have not yet made my reservations but since I stay 30 miles away I am assuming that will not be an issue,so sign me up for the booth also.

Dan, I was in that shot with you.  I'm the one that told you to come to the booth after the shot.

Funfest is going to be bigger and better yet again this year.  The event has grown so much and costs so much to put on that a small charge was added. $25.00 is not much to pay for the quality event you get in return. You also have options if you want to upgrade to participate in other activities. I am so excited about the upcoming Funfest and will be there to help set up again this year and try to get us a great club parking place.
I hope to see you all this year. It will be a blowout. This is also Mikes Birthday celebration as well as the premier Corvette party of the year!!

I agree Scott, I think it's going to be an absolute blast!!  I hear that on some of the other sites (not that I would actually go to any of those myself), there are some nay sayers about the charge.
 
Personally, I'm glad all of those jack a$$'s are saying they're not going.  They probably don't even wave.

I doubt the $25.00 will cover the T shirt , book , pin  and poster , besides the Saturday night event  and the employees.  There's a butt load of work that goes into putting this thing together. Anyone that wants to see a true miracle happen, just be there two days before and watch it happen .LOL
There's a whole sub culture out there that thinks the world owes them something to begin with.
 Do you remember when they used to give away free food coupons? When they stopped that , you would have thought the world ended. It was the same crying because they now had to buy their own food.  I personally am glad to be close enough to be able to attend and am happy to pay a mear 25 bucks to get in. It is a 3 day event, where else can you do anything for 3 days for 25 bucks.
I think it will just keep the "Walmart crowd" at home. If anyone genuinely can not come up with the 25 and wants to go, I am sure we can help them out .... Wink
 
 
I am so ready for this years FUNFEST !!!!!
 
If there is any way possible and you can find a way to go, it would be an awesome site to see a couple hundred C3VR C3's parked in the C3VR club parking area ! Can you imagine any better advertisement for the site?

As Dan has indicated FUNFEST information has been posted on the Mid America website.

Those present at the Kokomo Midwest Cruise In are aware the I am going to be helping in Adam's absence as I did last year at this event. I will be posting information as it becomes available. I have been in contact with Mid America's contact person Nancy Bushur working on some C3VR related items.

In the past I have been the contact person for and helped to organize the Club Parking for the registry members. If there is anyone interested in doing this I would appreciate this. I will work with anyone who might volunteer to do this and help them organize this.

On another note this thread is about Car Shows........

Mid America is one of our great sponsors. They are interested in any events that we sponsor. An example of this was the last Midwest Cruise In to Kokomo. They would like for us to send to them our events calendar so that they can list this on theirs. In doing so they will send to the contact person of the event some door prizes that will bring smiles to the attendees faces. (Bad Larry do ya hear what I have cookin hear fer yer BBQ?)

Nancy Bushur and I have talked through some of this and agreed that we can do this by region since we are a worldwide registry. I have agreed to get her the information on any events that our members are putting on. This is a great oppertunity for us to help promote the registry to other folks who might be looking for C3 events in their area.

Soooooo....... If y'all have some events (get togethers) that you will be putting on send me a pm and I will get back with you on what information I need to send to Nancy.

Registered - check

Hotel Room - check

Schedule cleared at work and time off approved - uh, well...  We'll see.  I either need to make sure the project that launches a week before goes off flawlessly, or has some major issues causing a delay of three weeks or more.  I'll strive for the former, so I can make Friday night dinner.
