Tux,
If we make reservations at La Quinta, should we say that we are with the C3VR group and request the special discount?
Is there anyone we should ask for?

Dave-
    Yes, you can call anytime now. 260-490-7950. Tell them you are with the C3VR Corvette Club that is good for June 13th and 14th.
     They will provide front row designated parking ( I will go there and show them where to block off our parking.). Also they are going to give us a sign in table and complimentary meeting room for June 13th though June 15th.
    If anyone has anymore request let Tux, Terry or myself know. The manager really seems excited about our visit and she will try to accommodate our needs.
     The Trolley Bar will be giving us a semi private room, which we can use as long as we want that night .

This just in. The Classic Corvette Museum is very much looking forward to our visiting, and has offered us 1/2 price admission. That's $5.00 per person. Hope to see you there.Thumbs%20Up TerryM

Geez Mike, What did you expect? We know what a tough crowd these C3VR people are.....

An by the way... I believe Gene has managed to shave the price some more off of the original quoted hotel cost. It is now at $62.00.

Can you tell these folks are dealing with Stingray people?????
