Those of you who attended the KY Rally in Georgetown will remember the music Saturday night. We just got confirmation that Bonnie and Ronnie will be performing for us again next year in Cave City. They will be performing "50's and 60's" music to dance to,. Hope to see you in Cave City on October 10, 2015.

I talked with the Campground today and although we have plenty of time left before the Rally, there are only FOUR rigs signed up as of today. They are holding 23 sites for us, so I encourage you to sign up as soon as you can. Today, I spoke with Ronnie of "Bonnie and Ronnie" our band for Saturday night and they are looking forward to providing the live 50's and 60' music for us.

To all who plan to attend our Rally: I have a request, would you be willing bring some examples of your hobby, craft or collection to share with us. For example, wood working, carving, sewing such as cross stitch, crochet or quilting; painting or sketching; collections such as stamps, photos,rocks, etc. I know others would enjoy seeing and hearing about your craft. You can offer items for sale if you want to but it is not a requirement. We will set a time for everyone to get together and share our hobbies. Please let me know if you will participate so I can have tables available.

We are still trying to get a sight for the rally. We found out we could make it and was going to follow a couple down from Indiana Rally, but they say no sights available for our size. We said we did not have to be with the Heartland group but that did not work either. They said it was not a good week for a rally and people stopping on their way south!! So, still hoping we might hear something tomorrow. Heading back to Illinois Monday if still no room!!! Barb and Bill

The Corvette factory (https://www.bowlinggreenassemblyplant.com/) offers tours Monday thru Friday at 8:30, 11:30 and 2:00. It's about 30 minutes away from the campground.
We plan on fitting this into our stay (we'll be at Cave Country CG til Wednesday) and wondered if anyone else would be interested in joining us.

I've been to the Corvette Museum several times and I highly recommend it.

Sounds like Friday might be the best. I was just looking at the site and we can get a private tour if we get at least 20 people. Looks like we're more than half way there already.
Is the 11:30 time frame good? No rush in the morning that way and leaves most of the afternoon for other activities.

Count Beletti as 2. We're okay with 11:30 Friday. Please confirm with the Chapter Leader to ensure nothing is "in the planning stage" rally-wise that may conflict.

CORVETTE PLANT TOUR
I just got off the phone with the people that handle the tours. They can accommodate us as a PRIVATE TOUR at 10:00AM ​on Friday. The charge is still $7/person and they can take up to 25 people. They ask that, for a group, it expedites the process if one person presents payment for the group. I'll assume that role.

I have a list of those who signed up for 11:30 and will assume they can still go at 10am unless I hear from them. Please talk with others you know are coming to the rally and might like to go as well so we know when we get to the limit.
From the Tour website (https://www.bowlinggreenassemblyplant.com/):
What to wear & what not to bring

For safety reasons, no crutches or walking assists are allowed. Wheelchairs are available at no charge. All visitors are required to wear closed toe and closed heel shoes (no spike heels or sandals). No cameras, backpacks, purses, fanny packs or other containers may be brought into the plant except by special request (for medical reasons, etc.) Also, all electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets, or walkie-talkies are not allowed in the facility. These items must be left in your car. There are no holding facilities onsite for guests' personal belongings.
Due to safety regulations within the plant, small infants/children in strollers, along with all children under the age of seven will not be allowed to tour our facility.

Val and I are coming down to Cave City today. We plan on going downtown to see the Budweiser Clydesdales (one of my bucket list items, so yeah).

Here's the schedule from the Cave City convention center website:

2:30-4:00pm : Arrive Cave City Christian Church 3rd & Broadway Watch the horses unload, groomed, harnessed, wagon polished & horses hitched
4:00-4:30pm : Parade down Broadway, cross the railroad tracks to Cave City Convention Center
4:30-5:30pm : Meet & greet with the Horses and Dalmatian
5:30-6:00pm : Watch the horses unharnessed and loaded

Also, they will be doing the same on Saturday, the 10th, in Bowling Green but in the morning instead of the afternoon.

We may be in town early enough to catch lunch with folks, if anyone wants to. We'll stop by the campground when we first get there.

According to Neale - the tour is at 10 am at the factory. Since it's about a 25-30 minutes drive, Neale said he was going to leave the campground at 9. Several other of us are planning to go to cracker barrel for breakfast then be down near the factory by 9:30. Maybe Neale will chime in but I'm not sure where at the factory we are suppose to meet. Also he will be collecting the $$ down there so he probably would like exact amount. The tour folks have asked that only one person pay so that is why he's will be the one collecting from us before the tour.

I'm not the planner, nor is the chapter leader, but so far as I know...

9:00 am leave the CG - no planned carravan that I'm aware of
9:30 am arrive at Corvette plant
10:00 am our private tour

Specific details about the tour can be found in post #109.

Karen and Dan H are riding with Nancy and I. We plan to roll at 9 am. We also plan to visit the Corvette Museum after the factory tour and have lunch at the Museum in the Corvette Cafe.

My organizing skills are a little lacking, aren't they?

What has been posted by Jim and Byrd is correct! Since the campground doesn't really lend itself to 8 or 10 duallies gathering I thought it best to meet at the plant. Just get on I-65 southbound...the factory is right next to the highway. Then (from the factory website):

Directions

We are just off I-65 at exit 28. Turn right at the first light onto Corvette Drive and follow the plant signs to the tour entrance.

Thanks Ken & Faye, we had a wonderful at the rally!

Here's the recipe for the chicken & noodles for anyone who wanted it:

Mix 1 family size can of cream of chicken soup with 32 oz carton or can(s) of chicken broth and 1/3 cup of chicken soup base. I use Miller's Amish soup base but any brand would work I think.
Add 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts or breast strips ( I use Tyson frozen strips) and cook in a 6qt crockpot on High for 4 hours.
Remove the chicken and pull into smaller chunks and return to crockpot.
Add 1 bag (1 lb) dry homestyle noodles (I like Essenhaus Kluski noodles from Walmart) and add more chicken broth if needed to cover the noodles.
Cook for 1 more hour until noodles are tender. Enjoy!
