This is a poll to see by a show of hands who would be interested in attending the MAM SPRING EVENT. We have enough time to notify the fine folks at MAM that we would be comming and they might be willing to rollout the proverbial [color=red]Torch Red[/color carpet for us...

I recently went to the 34th anniversary bash and had a good time. If there is an interest in an overnight stay the Holiday Inn Express in Highland, Il. is very nice and clean. Another bonus is next to the hotel is Farmers Restraunt. It is a family style restraunt with very good food and foot high pies....

If we can get a group together then Scott (CJNutz) and I will work together to set some things up for us.

I will update the poll accordingly if an interest is shown....

Those that don't want to come to Highland can meet us at MAM!
 
I just love going to MAM , always something new ! Toys to look at, Toys to buy!
I just told Suzy that I need to go ahead and get one of the Vettes ready for the trip if the weather cooperates with us.
ALl I need for the 77 is to fix the brake fluid leak.

March 15th is NOT Spring in my neck of the woods.
If it was May 15th, I might consider it.

MAM Swapfest is May 3, 2008 , I will meet you there !  LOL
Another swapfest is in October if you can't make the first one..
Dave, leave early and watch the weather, I have the perfect place for your tent !
 
It would be awesome if you could make it.
I have a list of 95 C3 s in close driving distance and have invited them all to come , only a couple are C3VR members as far as I know. It would be awesome if they came and we had a good turnout and ...and .. and..., wishful thinking.....

I just got off the phone with Nancy at MAM.
We can plan more as we get more people on board , for now we have ...
Tour of their manufacturing plant
They are going to provide lunch for us after the tour
There might be a seminar and maybe other things as well
To make this happen and get sweeter , we need people on board for this.
I think it will be a good time !

I posted this message with  the St Louis C3 Sharks
There are about 100 or so current local members that could potentially be C3VR members as well. I will keep you informed of the response I get , good or bad LOL
 
Mid America Motorworks is holding its Spring Into Gear Saturday Event on March 15th. Lots of Specials, Sale Items & Fun.
I am also helping organizing a midwest cruise in for www.c3vr.com the same day.
 There will be a plant tour which I know some of you already went on, they will provide lunch after the tour as well as other activities  already planned for that day.
I know there is a lot going on and theres always weather issues  and most of us have been to MAM a hundred times, but theres a few that I think would really enjoy this. You will also get to rub shoulders with other C3 nutz in the region.
 Let me know how many can come or if you might come  on here or email me at cj5nutz@msn.com 
The more that we can get to come , the more perks we can get from MAM !
Thanks ... Scott

I have no idea..
I have about 5  C3 owners that are not C3VR members that say they will be there weather permitting. Kelly West  (Anotherred81) sent me an email saying weather permittin he will be there . He just bought a sweeet C5 and probably will be driving it.
I told him C5 s were welcome , we might be in the Volvo S80 ourselves LOL

I now have an IDEA!
 
I just got this email from Nancy ....
 
This is stuff that has accumulated since Funfest, returns, scratch and dent and what have you..  The important thing here is ... This stuff has not been picked through by anyone and we have first shot at it. We need people and to show interest to get them to unpack it, otherwise it stays packed up until Spring Swapfest in May.
 
Hows that for a reason to come ? !!!  Clap
 
 Here is the email I received. 
 

Good Morning-

 

Kenny Yager and I talked this morning and he has a bunch of scratch and dent items that he is considering to get out for the group of corvette owners on March 15th.  Do you think that more members would attend if we do this?  Kenny doesn’t want to go through the work unless we have at least 25 corvette owners here. 

 

We’re thinking of opening the pre-swapfest area from 8am to 11am to your clubs only and then having lunch and the corporate tour.  We will finish the day with a tour of Performance Choice.

 

What do you think?

 

Nancy

So, are there really only 3 C3VR members (local or otherwise) that are able to make this? This sounds like a neat rare treat, behind the scenes, free lunch, etc.  I'd love to come if I was local and single :)

I just posted on CAC  to see if any of the locals on there could help get the numbers up, but other than that , I don't think so.  Still even with the post on CAC , we probably will only get locals.
 To begin with I contacted Nancy and ask her if we got enough people to the event Saturday, what could they do for us. It's taken a life of its own since then LOL
