Come and join me at Mid-America Motorworks 2006 Funfest, September 15, 16, and 17 held at MAM's facility in Effingham, Illinois. (click here for details and registration)

The closest room I could find is about 30 miles north of Effingham at Mattoon so start looking now if you haven't booked one already.

More info will be added here as the gathering gets closer.

Hope to see you there...!!!

I wish we can make it.  We can only do one far travel a year.  We will also miss out on the C3 Extravaganza.     Oh well, maybe stop by BG after our gathering in PF.   That would be

 

Enjoy your time there.  Get photos of the place, you, the vette and others.

Here's the response I received to an e-mail about camping at MAM-FF:

[QUOTE=Norsky]
Hi Jim,

Yes!  We do allow free camping on Mid America Motorworks grounds in designated areas, Thursday through Sunday after the show. The accommodations are primitive however, only port-a-potties and hand wash stations are available. No hook ups, showers etc. There is a dumping station and water fill up, at Crossroads RV Sales at the 4-way stop lights just a mile south of Mid America Motorworks. Let me know if you have any other questions. 

Save the wave!

Jim,

Karen and I will be there.  We are # 8 on the list for the Motel 6.  Dick & Jill gave us a contact there, she was very helpful and said the last few years she has put everyone on the waiting list in a room. 

We would be happy to give you a break on the booth if you need it!!

See you there!!

Mel

The ride down from Mattoon isn't bad (at least not around 7am).  It's very pretty (once you get off the highway) and no traffic.  I've done that ride for 2 years.  It will take you almost exactly 30 minutes.  You can technically not use the highway, but I recommend you do until you have to get off closest to Effingham.  You'll be on the local road for about 10 or 15 minutes.

Jim, did you set up a booth schedule thread yet?

Sure did - here it is.  Anyone attending and able to help out at the C3VR/C6VR booth for a little bit?

Check out the top entry of the thread for some updated info.
