It will be here before you know it. Thought I would throw out a couple ideas I've been pondering regarding the upcoming big event. I mentioned in an earlier post that I would approach a couple local businesses regarding a evening cruise/BBQ for the Camaro segment of the Meet. Haven't done so yet but thought I would see if there was any interest from those planning on attending. Also wanted to know if anyone would be interested in participating in a "DYNO DAY"? Our local machine shop, Rohnert Park Machine has a Dyno-Jet chassis dyno on-site. They have held these "dyno days" in the past for large or small groups. They have some pictures of the one they had for some Viper owners on their web site. Looks like alot of fun. Maybe Clill could show off those two red cars? I believe you get two or three pulls per car, printouts of your pulls, and lunch. If anyone is interested let me know and I can get more info reference cost, times etc.

A lot of people from the club that I’m involved with are planning on going. We could use more info on local hotels / motels and even camping (RV and regular) areas near the meeting sight (cheep high end). Also has it been decided exactly where the event is other that Rohnert Park? Dynos are nice, but finding a place to stay is more important to me now.

Ed,
Went to the site that you listed and I know that things will change, but it looks like the event will be in the parking lot of the Double Tree Hotel. I think you know my next question; How will they hold all the vendors, swapmeet people and cars in a parking lot? Or is there another site TBD for the “event” portion of this gathering?
Thanks, Mark

The Doubletree has hosted several National level meets in the past. T-Bird Nats, Early A's etc. They've got plenty of room. Hotel is bordered on 3 sides by a golf course. Nice setting. Days will be hot but by 7:00 pm you'll want a sweatshirt. Rohnert Park is 50 miles directly north of San Francisco on Hwy 101. Check the website Ed posted for date info. From what I have read and heard the event is hosted by Classic Chevy internantional. The WCC has formed some sort of aliance with them and is participating in several CCI events around the country. The Rohnert Park event is one. I can check on local lodging facilities to include camping. Lodging should not be a problem as Santa Rosa is 3 miles north and Petaluma is 7 miles south. Between the three towns you will have plenty to choose from. I'll try and get something on the board by early March.

Onemorecamaro,
Thanks. This is what I’m looking for. I did print the map that they have listed and do see that it is adjacent to the golf coarse and to Roberts Lake, I suppose this area will be used too. Also it’s close to the Wal-Mart, and old Sam don’t mind over night RV’ers!!! Again, please let us know about logging in the area (you know, which one’s to use and NOT use!).

You aren't kiddin about Wall-Mart. I've seen up to 20 campers on any given day. What's up with that. Looks like the carnival is in town but the only rides are by the front door. LOL

There is a thing about Wal-Mart and campers. They don’t mind that you camp over night in their parking lot. If you get a map out and plot the Wal-Marts, they are located along major freeways all over the country so that somebody from South Dakota traveling West along the major freeways has a familiar place to shop. Haven’t you recognized that all Wal-Mart are laid out the same in side the store? Plus I saw a 60 Minuets news program on the subject…..

I'm working with the president of WCA who is putting on this gathering. Haven't got much yet as his wife is due this week! That along with the fact that they just had the Camaro Winternationals last week has slowed progress... As I get info I will pass it on. The folks putting on the main show ( www.2001achevyodyssey.com ) are unclear as to what part the Camaro will play at this event.... It's Camaros Limited's 20th year and I would like to see this bloom into a great yearly event Here in CA!!!

Yo DjD,
I was trying to get in to WCA BB and I registered, but it still won’t let me log in. E- me at work tomorrow or at home tonight. As for the event, that web site just tells about the hotel and some of the events, not much as to where they my be at, or if it is just out in the parking lot. And yes, I do under stand that things will change, but before you know it the event will be upon us. So having a plan is better than just waiting and winging it.

We are coming down to the show. I think it is about 750 miles for us. We have made reservations at the Doubletree in the blocked out rooms. I think it was $99 per night. We haven't registered for the meet yet. I am confused whether we have to join CCI to take part in all the events, don't know exactly what part WCA is playing. The people I talked to from the local club were helpful but did not have all the answers a month or so ago. planning on getting there a day or two early and touring the wine country.

Clill said we could all stay at his house for the week,he is only an hour or so from the show. He would probably feed us too. We might even get turns driving that Red Thing back and forth to the show.

Can I camp out on the front lawn? Bathroom use too? Also do you have car lift to change oil before I head back to San Jose?
