TurboLuigi said:I'll definitely take advantage of the wash area. Though I don't plan to take too much cleaning stuff since I have limited storage in the car.
However, I hope this is not like a local car show where I spent 3 days detailing the car/engine in the garage only to have to drive through a dirt field to the show area. Boy was I mad!
BTW, The car is ready. Oil changed. New Tires. Brakes done. All I am missing is the Nose Mask which may not make it in time before I go. (This show is getting expensive already!)

*89x2* said:Kevin, I am pleased too.. In fact the area to wash the cars was unknown to me and is a nice bonus!!! TurboLuigi may want to take advantage of that!!! <Don't use hotel towels for your wheels though The fairgrounds has a wash area but it is right in a gravel lot...
Things are looking good!!!
See everyone next week! Chris *89x2*

Gentlemen - I hate to "rain" on your parade, but there has been a ban on washing cars in the Carlisle and surrounding areas for some time now. One can only wash cars at a facility that uses recycled water such as a do-it-yourself car wash. There has been some debate within the community as to whether or not we should allow an exception for the Fairgrounds, but I'm sure that you cannot legally wash your car at the hotel. However, if you choose to ignore the local regulations - then that's your business. Be advised, an over-zealous policeman may decide to make an example of someone with a $500 fine. I suggest you call the Fairgrounds to see if they will have car washing facilities on site.

At the fairgrounds,your cars will be parked on grass fields and the roads are paved. I only have one warning for you first-timers, though. This event is probably the best Corvette event in the world and attending it every year will become an addiction. I know,,I've been every year since '97.
The LT5 Registry has a nice-sized tent/booth at the fairgrounds that you're always welcome to stop by and cool off.EricVonHa said:Chris is serious on the shade issue... none to be found anywhere short of hanging out at the pavillions (3 maybe?) or bringing your own shade apparatus. My little gizmo cost me like $40 at Kmart... ask me if I still have all the pieces to put it together :L I think I'll do a test assembly here at the house prior to leaving... if it works, everyone is welcome to borrow some shade. Reserve your time slots early. :L
