I am considering attending the Funfest, wondering if anyone has been to one of these, is it worth the trip, is anyone near Joplin going?

I went last year and it was GREAT...you should do this at least once..there were 8,000 Vettes there of all kinds..even the food was good there!!
It was really a sight to see.
I didnt go to the carnival grounds that took place in a form of long caravan with all the vettes going there down the road from MAD...but heard that was nice.

I plan to go this year too...when you get there go to the registration booth and they give you coupons..you get a free T shirt,tickets for the food and etc.
You can pre register online I think or send in your form if you got one in the mail.
Also if you like taking pictures of Vettes, bring the camera...theres going to be ALOT of cars there.

Expect to see thousands of Vettes and to have a ball. They have a scratch and dent sale of items returned for whatever reason. Got a C4 cover last year for $35 that looked brand new, but had been unpackeged and returned.
Also has discount on anything they have and believe free shipping of anything purchased there. If it is in stock and small enough you just walk over to shipping and take it home--no waiting. Also quite a few reps from the various suppliers they use. They will answer any product questions you have and have demos of new equip. Mike also provides pretty good food and entertainment. You do need to go ahead and get registered and start looking for a room now. They usually fill up pretty quick.
Go and enjoy-:cheers: -you know if more than a couple of vette folks are together it will be fun. :D

Went a few years back when I still lived in IN. Had a blast. Was my first corvette gathering. Couldn't believe that many people from all over the US would drive to Effingham IL.

I have never been, but would love to go! If I find me a nice C4 for sale, and buy it before Sept. 15 & 16, you bet I'll be there! :cool:

It's a "show" that's hard to beat. If you register, the food is free ($5 per day), plus you get a free t-shirt and poster and hat pin.

Just the sight of that many Corvettes all together is awe inspiring.
I'd put it at the top of the list of national Corvette functions to attend.
