MID AMERICA CORVETTE FUNFEST AND MUSCLE CAR ADVENTURES; THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
Several times throughout the year, we wish we could be in two places at one time. Next week we have that situation. You see, the 21st Annual Mid America Corvette Funfest is happening in Effingham, Illinois, September 18-21, and out in the Wisconsin Dells, we have the cool Muscle Car Adventures tour!
What to do...
MID AMERICA FUNFEST, Featuring Vets with Vettes
If there was ever a must do bucket list event, this is it! As the name implies, this event is all about having fun with your car and a whole lot of awesome people. MCACN Official Sponsor Mid America Motorworks knows how to throw a party, and a party is exactly what this is. Kicking off Thursday, September 18, with the Fun Run and downtown party, things progress for the whole weekend from there. Mike and Laurie Yager will host the annual Charity event Friday night and it just keeps on coming. With row after row of Corvettes , you’ll see it all. Over in the center of the campus you’ll find awesome displays from all kinds of manufacturers and suppliers, and if you want to get the inside scoop, check out the long list of seminars. You’ll find the Corvette world’s “who’s who” on the lists!
This is what they say about the Funfest; “Corvette Funfest takes place every September at Mid America Motorworks’ Corporate Campus in Effingham, Ill. Four days of Corvette expert seminars, product displays, fashion shows, Corvette Clubs, headlining entertainment and more make this a must-attend event for every Corvette enthusiast!” And that is just a sampling of what they have in store. Make it a point to check out the big Saturday night concert, featuring 38 Special this year! (and here’s a tip; be sure to see Mid America Motor Works Chief Cheerleader Mike Yager up on stage dancing the night away, along with Laurie, Michael, Blake and we can only guess who else! You’ll also want to visit our MCACN 2014 Featured Artist David Snyder, who will be on hand with his latest offerings including something new that I’ll let him tell you about.
To learn more about the Funfest, see maps and get road updates and to see the full schedule of activities, go to http://www.corvettefunfest.com/News.aspx?Cat=4#193. You can still sign up and you don’t have to own a Corvette to join in the fun! Spectators are welcome and as stated earlier, this is an absolute must do event for the whole family.
So if you prefer to spend a bit more time behind the wheel driving your car, this is the event for you. We all know how scenic the Wisconsin Dells are, and this event has a long list of guided tours with some really great stops. Not a road race, it is designed to be spirited with a focus on enjoying the sights and sounds. We had a blast last year and met plenty of like minded people. Of course, driving a nice fresh Nickey Camaro certainly helped make it even more fun! The Chula Vista Resort is the home base and it truly has something for everybody. Great food, great service, great golfing and all kinds of fun things to do. But this event is all about driving your Muscle Car, and sharing your passion with like minded fun people. Nickey, who has been a MCACN Official Sponsor since our inception, is the Presenting Sponsor for this, and you can bet that there will be plenty of Nickey customers partaking in the fun. And here is a hint; if you happen to end up behind Nickey Hi-Performance Manager Denny Barker, pull off to the side and let him get way ahead of you, and don’t even think about passing him!
You can still sign up to be a part of the Muscle Car Adventures event and we highly recommend you do. Great cars, cool people, an awesome resort and plenty of colorful tours through some of the most scenic parts of The Dells. Could it get any better?
Go to http://www.musclecaradventures.com/ for full information, the list of tours, maps and more.
You don't have to choose, you can do BOTH great events!!

MCACN MAGAZINE UPDATE; It has been a crazy week, wrapping up our new MCACN magazine. And here’s some news; we have expanded to 72 pages! We simply have so much going on this year, with so many awesome cars that there was no way I could squeeze it into 64 pages, Fact is, even with 72 it was a challenge! I am really pleased with the results and have to credit my creative director Mike D’Alessio, (who also happens to be our Director of Staffing) for his diligence and for working the late hours after his real job. We do it all via e-mail with my descriptions of my vision of how things should look. I write the stories, send the pictures and try to tell him what I want. Sounds like quite a challenge, eh? Well let me just say, I could not be happier with the results and hopefully you will like it too!
