Okay Kidz I think that FUNFEST stuff is pretty well complete so I am back to working on this.... I am trying to get us deal on hotel rooms in the $60.00 or less range. I should have this confirmed this week.

I am looking close to Volo but not necessarily in Volo.

Why, you might ask?

Well, because we have Corvettes... and we like to do what? DRIVE THEM. So Something an hour or less to Volo should be okay.

I plan to start lining out the itinerary this week. Once I get it somewhat presentable I will post it for your input.

Please keep in mind that with our arrival to the Museum we will be donating to the Toys For Tots Drive. So begin to think about how we can gather a nice contribution of toys to donate.

If anyone has any suggestions concerning this event please post them, shoot me a PM or and e-mail.....

IT'S GONNA BE FUN!!! AND I CAN GUARANTEE THAT.....!

Hey all... I just thought I would throw out a plug for this event. Countdown is underway and I am once again working hard on this.

At Funfest there were several newly signed up C3VR members from this area . This would be a great opertunity to meet with folks from our area and begin to share in some of the fun.

I have a couple of items to amend on the agenda so please check them out.

I lam looking forward to this event and sharing in some good clean Vette fun with ya'll.....

All right I have a special surprise for those who are going to attend this event. We will be going to An American Classic on Saturday morning. This is a very high end establishment that produces Barrett Jackson Quality cars. It's owner (Al Wagner) has agreed to let us visit and will pretty much be catering to our group.

Al has a very deep rooted passion for the Corvette as you will see if you click and read the articles in the above link. He will also be accompaning us for dinner on Friday and Saturday. This will enable us the opertunity to share stories, ask questions, and create new memories of meeting a great individual.

I hope this will sway some of you who may be riding the fence on if you should attend or not. For those who were already committed to the event lets just sit back and enjoy........ Tuxblacray2008-10-06 13:19:31
