With all the events of any size being cancelled or postponed I'm a bit surprised this event is still going to happen.  Read recently where Pennsylvania is limiting gatherings to around 250 people.

At the current time I plan to be there as long as it is being held. I'll have plenty of masks, hand sanitizer, wipes and a fan with me!

Are you planning to go, Dave?

We may have to skip the indoor dining Friday & Saturday nights and do a BBQ on the fairgrounds in the C3VR parking area.

I'll be there but not with the C3. Just too much bad luck at Carlisle with the C3. 

back when Carlisle had their swap meet this year they were being threatened with being shut down for having more than 250 people. They fought it in court and as I understand they have an exemption for the show. They have however canceled the parade in downtown Carlisle due to all the spectators it draws.

We won't be there, too much risk plus the Vette took a hit this weekend while riding on the trailer behind our motorhome.  Don't know what damage was done, so have to track that down and repair the damage.

Glad you'll all be there!

PA currently is restricted to 25% capacity for indoor dining. The Pizza Grille is not taking reservations because of this. Homer's BBQ is tiny as it is! So it would seem it would be hard to find room for our group together.  

I just figured it would be easier to simply gather at our parking area and BBQ.

Hey, just an idea, but since the Grillmaster will be in attendance, why doesn't Ebo take over the grill duties, if we are doing that? Since there's no more Ebofest, Ebofest could come to us!  😁 (just a thought)

Trust me, I've already considered this!  Hopefully he will see this message and respond accordingly!  If not, I'm bringing my mini Weber kettle grill and we'll only be having hot dogs and hamburgers.

😈 Talk about a railroad job......wow

Never saw that coming .......

Okay Group here is the plan..............

Of course I'm not putting any grill in the back of my C3.....but..... I do trailer the car now to Carlisle so I have room. I'll bring my small smoker and will smoke a pork butt (2 if there is a large head count) so we can have some pulled pork sandwiches. This will be Friday at the end of the day. Where we all use to leave and go to the restaurant we will now stay at the fairgrounds and have a BBQ.

Adam will bring his small Weber charcoal grill so  Saturday Adam will Supply hot dogs and hamburgers. 

For the rest of you planning on attending these meals we will need sides, if you have a favorite BBQ side you make and can throw it in a small cooler and bring it to pass that would be great.

Those that can not do a side ...... you can bring chips, water, soda, paper plates, napkins.

My Buddy Barry has always gone over to the beer cave with me to purchase and bring back some cold brews for the group so I'll sign him up for the beer. (since he signed me up to cook)

Please reply back to this post if you plan to stay for the BBQ's and then what you plan to bring.

And yes my pulled pork is amazing!

Stay safe see you all soon ebo😈

Toot... toot...   ebo - the little engine who could...!!!   🤣

On our way home from northeast Vermont to Colorado we'll be rolling through "Pennsyltucky" on Sunday, the 30th.  Haven't finalized our route yet but will be leaving Glenville, NY in the morning and plan to roost overnight in Bedford, PA.  It'll be fun to see a bunch of Corvettes while on the road that day...!!!

Mr. Norsky,  If you are going to be in Bedford, there is a Wonderful campground, Friendship Village. They have cabins to rent. VERY NICE. As long as you are there, you will only be a half hour or so from the Flight 93 Memorial site, where the plane went down. A visit you will not forget. Stop in and remember those who fought to keep other people and places safe!  A very solemn place.

Believe it or not we are staying at Friendship Village - but we'll be in our roving cabin (aka "Da Barge").  Mark, thanks for the good report on the place. 

Google maps shows 3 options for getting from Glenville to Bedford - the southern most (and longest in both miles and time) would take us past Carlisle.  If we took that route we wouldn't get to the Carlise area until mid-afternoon.  The place will most likely be deserted by then.

 

*** Update ***

Well, a change in plans will have us rolling through "Pennsyltucky" after Labor Day so will miss the parade of Corvettes.  😞

Well for the first time in 18 years, I will not be attending this year. There are a lot of varying views on Covid and everyone has to choose the view that is right for them. For me the risk isn't worth the reward. Once there's a vaccine, I'll be all in.

I called my hotel and Carlisle Events, and both graciously let me rollover my reservations over to cover 2021. Looking forward to seeing everyone then. For all that are attending this year, I hope you have a safe and fabulous time!!

Hate to bring up the subject but has anybody seen the predicted path of hurricane Laura. At this point they show it hitting PA Saturday sometime later in the day. Guess it will be a wait and see situation, let’s hope for the best!

Ugh! You're right! I hadn't realized.  This could really mess up Friday & Saturday at the fairgrounds!  Right now the official forecast is only showing a slight chance of rain, but I guess that could change as Laura gets closer and more predictable
