Default All Corvettes invited to Lakeland FL (Feb. 23-25)

A CF member (bbrown450) had started a topic in the C7 General Discussion section asking if anyone was planning on attending the Carlisle Events Winter Florida AutoFest.

Several CF members have posted that they are coming to the event. We would like to open up an offer to ALL CF members to bring their Corvettes to the event and if we can get 20+ Corvette Forum members and their cars, Carlisle has said they will provide a designated space for them in the show area, as well as a tent for them to use during the event.

The car and the driver would get in free of charge and a passenger would simply pay gate admittance. They would need to know by February 9th how many would be attending so they can designate the space and order the tent. CF members could use the tent to post a banner, issue name-tags and use as a general meeting area during the event.

Opening this up to all CF members, would anyone be planning to attend the Winter Florida AutoFest on February 23-25th? If we can gather enough interest, I can coordinate a way we can "sign up" so they know how many will be attending.

Thanks!

I would love to but that's the same dates as the Boca Concours d'Elegance which I judge.

There are currently 17 CF members considering attending the event with 11 committed to attending. I'll be there as well, but helping out on the showfield. Some folks are waiting to see if we get twenty Corvettes and I'm sure there are a few more that might consider showing up as well.

If you're thinking about it, please post so that I can let the folks at Carlisle know and we can secure that tent and designated space.

The list I have so far, for CF members of all generations is:
See 3
golfboy
Hit That!
SPCL FX
biggiefl
USMC 0802
Tampa Jerry
ericstanley
ART T
ontime
Mike98SilVert
Flame Red
VNAMVET
gwalsh88
G8R-Vette
My11thVette
KevinRH

Thanks to all that have posted already and if you'd like to attend the event and meet up with fellow CF members, let us know so we can GET THAT SPACE!

Thanks!

Thank you everyone for letting me know you'll be there. I've spoken with the folks in Carlisle and they are ordering a 20x20 tent to be set up on the showfield for the CF group. Feel free to bring a CF banner, name tags or whatever.

We've had a pretty good response from all segments of Corvette Forum.com, so expect to see Corvettes from all years/generations.

If you could, please PM me with your screen name and your full name, and I will put a list together for the folks who will be in the registration building. They can get you your credentials for the show and your window sticker.

If anyone else would like to join in on the group, feel free to continue posting to this thread and I will continue to add to the list. Also, please PM me your screen name and full name so I can make sure you get signed up for the folks at registration.

Thanks again!

Default 27 Definites so far!!!!!



There is a 20x20 tent ordered for the group. The only thing that you need to do when coming to the event for the first time is simply stop by the Tom Davis building and sign in.

Anyone that forwards me by PM their screen name and first/last name, I am putting together a list for the folks at Carlisle so they can have your registration started when you arrive. You can also show up the day of the event and register, I'm just giving Carlisle a heads-up as to how many to expect.

When you arrive, you can either enter through gate 1 (Rocky Road) or 2 (Doolittle Road). The Tom Davis building is highlighted in red in the image that I attached to this post. It is located right between gates 1 and 2. Just pull up, let them know you are there for the Corvette Forum group and finish your registration to get your window sticker. Then, you're good to go.

We'll be finalizing where the tent will be located and I can let everyone know once the tent pegs are in the ground. If you follow the black line, it'll direct you to the show field area.

I'm attending the concours on Sunday. First time, although I've lived in the area 25 years. Someday if I win the lotto I'll attend the whole thing

Spoke with a couple of local Corvette owners and mentioned the group of Corvettes that are coming to the event. Some have said that they are not members of CF, but wondered if anyone would mind if they parked with the group.

I mentioned that I didn't think there would be any issue, plus they might become CF members through it! Just wanted to check if that is okay, or if I spoke out of turn? Thoughts?

My thought is they are Corvette owners, I say the more the merrier! And, as you said, they may become CF members.

I was looking forward to attending. As I backed out of the driveway and shifted to drive I was experienced the infamous C6 shifter cable problem. (The good thing is that it happened at home). The car was last seen leaving the neighborhood on a flatbed. Not happy at all about missing this event.
