Hello C3VR Party Goers!
     Here's some information on the next get-together that is now
being planned. It will be in Vevay, Indiana right on the banks of
the Ohio River. It was originally built by a Mr. Ogle and upon his
death it was left to the city of Vevay. It was purchased by Belterra Casino and completely renovated several years ago. Big
beautiful wood beams and timber inside. Also, has nice riverview
rooms looking at the river and the hills of Kentucky.
     I am hoping that with a more southern location that we can attract members from Louisville and surrounding areas.
     If this catches your interest please try and respond as soon as possible so that we can block rooms. This place only has 35 rooms left as of today because it is not a huge complex.
     To view this place go to www.bestwestern.com and go to Vevay,In
and look for Ogle Haus Inn 1013 W Main St. Vevay, In 47043.
     Hope we have a huge turnoutSmileWink    Butch
     Here's the list of attendees so far:
           dcherr (2) Dean & Colleen
           manget1 (2) Marshall & Candi
           tux (2) Larry & Lora
           vette country (2) Dick & Jill
           ceastham1 (2) Clint & Hunter
           red70-oneconv (2) Bob & Pat
           white78 (2) Tom & Marilyn
           mitch (2) Mitch & Karen
           karmel77 (2) Mel & Karen
           butch's vettes (2) Butch & Jani
           82-2 tone (1 or 2?) Bob & Martha                    Hope I have everyone's name right!
           my7T1 (2) Sorry Mr. T Terry & Patty                 
           thallow (2) Tom & ?
           stingray jim (1) Jim
           
  There are still rooms available in the block as of Saturday. Plan on having a great time with some great people. The agenda is being worked on (thanks, Tux) and as soon as it's finalized we'll let you know. This has been a group effort and has been lots of fun. Hope to see all of you there.
                                          Butch
Need a final tally of all of you that will be coming in on Thursday for reservations for dinner at Mo's Steakhouse. We plan on eating around 7:30ish. Let me know so I can have that set-up for all of us to dine together. Can't wait to see you in VevayTongue Final agenda to be posted this week-end. Safe travels and Save the WaveSmile

Okay Party Goers here's the latest information on the October Get-together
  I have blocked 15 rooms at the Ogle Haus Inn/Best Western in Vevay, In
  for the 7th,8th and 9th of October-leaving on the 10th. In order to make
  these reservations you have to call the Best Western/Ogle Haus directly.
  I am not sure as to the reasoning, but it might have something to do
  with the fact that I got a $50 per night reduction on the room and they
  don't want it to go through Best Western. The room rate will be $79 per
  night for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. No increase for week-end stays
  and this is for any room. I want all of you to be aware of the fact they
  have nice river-view rooms and on the first floor they walk out onto a
  concrete patio. There are only two floors to the complex. The phone #
  is: 812-427-2020 and the rooms are blocked as: C3VR/Butch.
  The Ogle Haus offers: 100 percent non-smoking rooms,riverview patio/
   deck, complimentary cable,HBO and hot breakfast, heated outdoor pool,
  in-room Microwave & refrigerator, King & Queen size beds, Master suites
  with jetted tubs, Stein Room Lounge, complimentary wireless Internet.
  As time goes on my partner in crime (Tux) will be researching restaurants
  and road tours. Hoping you'll get your rooms booked early for a great
  turnout and don't forget that you have to call Ogle Haus direct @ 812-
  427-2020.
  P.S. Mr Hamilton the hotel has informed me that will not allow any 5th
        wheel trailers in the parking lot, so I guess you and your bride will
        just have to arrive in your C5.WinkLOLRolling On The Floor LaughingRolling On The Floor LaughingRolling On The Floor LaughingBeer
  If there are any questions you can always send me an e-mail.
             Best regards, Butch & Jani

would he. HA HA!!!!!!!  Hope to see you and Pat in Oct.              Butch

BACK HOME AGAIN....IN INDIANA!!!!!   OK, Pat and I have made our reservations for Oct 7, 8 and 9 for the October get-together in Vevay.  Looks like it will be fun.  Thanks to Butch and Jani for putting this one together.  Cannot wait to see you all again.  I was disappointed to see that Butch was only kidding about parking the trailer.  I was looking forward to driving the 50th, especially if there was a chance of rain, hail, etc.  You all know how I love to drive the car in the weather.  However, since he was kidding, (imagine Butch trying to pull someone's leg) and the lady at the motel said there was lots of parking for the trailer, I am going to try to bring the C3.  I have been doing some things, such as new motor mounts, trans mount, spark plugs and wires, new rear spring, etc.  I am currently working on the resolution to change the No 3 cylinder spark plug.  My last solution was to park the car in the middle of a big open field, place 300 lbs of TNT under the oil pan, attach long fuse and light.  Then call the insurance company and hope the replacement car has a new set of plugs.  Pat has suggested I re-think that solution, but I don't know...................Any way the good Lord willing we will be there. Cannot wait.  If I can help in any way, let me know

Thanks
 
Bob
