2011 GTG with the Tennessee Chapter

Who thinks this would be a good Summertime GTG? I mentioned it on the Tennessee Chapter.

There hasn't been a GTG yet between the Tennessee Chapter and the Kentucky Chapter. It would be a natural at a location easily accessible to all of us. My suggestion is Beech Bend in Bowling Green. Great amusement park, water park, super campground, picnic areas, and of course the NHRA 1/4 mile drag strip...all there together. The drag strip has O'Reilly Saturday Night Fun Racing. Run as many times as you feel like and get the time slips.

I think this would be a great idea Byrd. I had talked to Glenn in TN back in the summer and was hoping to make it down there but we weren't able to. I also mentioned to a friend the other day about wanting to get back to Bowling Green as we had a blast the last we were there. Shoot me an email with some ideas and some time frames and we will see if we can make this happen. We need to get this chapter active again. Hope everything is going well for you and Bonnie.

I'd like to eat lunch at and tour the Corvette Museum again too.

By the way, the Corvette Museum is planning to build a super track across the interstate from the museum. It will have:

- Two Road Courses
- One Karting Track
- Ten Acre Autocross Track and
- Skid Pad Training Area
- 1/4 Mile Drag Strip

That would be awesome to take our trucks through the Test track. Do you have dates in mind for this GTG Byrd?

Here's just a suggestion. I know at Beech Bend there is a Saturday night fun racing event coming up on May 21 (Saturday) that should be a blast.

May 21 O'Reilly Saturday Night Fun Racing with Dixie Doorslammers & Nostalgia Pro Comp Qualifying

http://www.beechbend.com/dragschedule.htm

The Dixie Doorslammers

The Dixie Doorslammers are awesome! There could be a Corvette Museum tour Friday afternoon or Saturday morning and Beech Bend on Saturday. This message has been edited.
