Default Corvette Caravan to Bloomington Gold

There will be a group of Corvettes gathering together at Cracker Barrel restaurant, 2001 Formosa Rd., Troy, Illinois, 62294 on Thursday, June 27th to caravan together to Bloomington Gold Corvette Show! We should have a rather large group as it will consist of at least two area clubs, Lookingglass Corvette Club of Highland, Il. and The Original Corvette Club of St. Louis. We will leave at 10am, although many will arrive earlier to enjoy some breakfast. All are welcome, the more Corvettes the better!!! We all look forward to a huge group of Corvettes taking an easy drive to Bloomington Gold Corvette Show!!!
Any questions, please call Chris Covinsky 1-314-606-9150.

Great! There will most likely be some of us getting to Cracker Barrel Restuarant around 9am to eat breakfast and plan on leaving at 10am.

Love to see this. Living in Springfield, I remember all the caravans that made their way to Bloomington when it was at the Fairgrounds.

Might see you going over there on Thursday!

No, we are not going to Effingham, we are going the other way thru Springfield. We plan on getting to our hotel earlier than the Mid-america caravan will arrive to Bloomington Gold. All Corvettes welcome to join us for breakfast at 9am and plan to leave by 10am.
