It certainly could be.  At this point I'd guess it would have to be an exeutive decision to make it so.  If memory serves the last official C3VR gathering in BG took place in 2005, the 2nd (and last) pure C3 Extravaganza.  I know there have been concerns about our gathering in conjunction with a large scale event but we had fun with the C3VR gang during the '09 NCC.

I am planning to attend the NCM event in 2014, so it would be good to see a lot of other C3VR members there.
You need to make hotel reservations well in advance, but I believe many of the caravan leaders reserve large blocks of rooms. If they don't fill by the cutoff date, they will be released, so you might get on a waiting list.
In 2009 we stayed in Cave City. That worked out well.

Just to be clear, the 2014 NCC to Bowling Green is in the East Region of the country (click here for a map of regions).  The Official C3VR Member Gathering for 2014 is slated to be in the Middle Region.  I don't mean to say we can't talk about a group of C3VR folks getting together for the NCM's 20th anniversery.  I just want everyone to keep in mind that the two gatherings are, as of now, totally separate events.

Clap I had mentioned this possibility a while ago when I heard of the 2014 caravan. We are signed up and plan to attend. We will be leaving Carlisle with a group leaving on Sunday afternoon. Hope we can incorperate the gathering in it as well. If not "AT" the 14' event then within the same time frame. Maybe the following days after Labor Day. Save your pennies, we could attempt a Corvette overload.Big smile M-n-S

I just got a message from the NCC national chairman. The assembly plant will be opening soon for tours. They are not booking tours yet, but when they do they will fill up fast for that last week in August 2014.

From the Bowling Green News:

Tatman (Corvette Plant Manager) said he knows the public is eager to get back into the plant, but he wants to ensure that employees are in a production rhythm. He expects tours, which generally are given to thousands of people each year, will return in late October.
  

Here is the link for the plant website: http://www.bowlinggreenassemblyplant.com/

My understanding about plant tours during the NCM Caravan is that they will be continuous, not groups by appointment. They did this in 2009 and it is the best way to get a large number of people through the plant.

If you want a plant tour some other time, you can make an appointment.

I don't know of any hotel for C3VR members. I think everyone is on their own.
Grab a place when you can. There are several motels in Cave City or near by.
I plan to stay in Mammoth Cave Park, but I haven't made a reservation yet.
