Just an update:
I had a chance to scout out a few areas this weekend and now have a few calls to make as far as what would be involved in reserving these large parking lots.
A couple are located in Forest Park and where a few car shows have been hosted in the past. Another is located in downtown St. Charles near to the boathouse/riverfront.
The next area that I would like to focus on is accommodation possibilities. A lot of you have already responded saying that you're down and what not. Is there anyone that can give me an estimate # of people from each area that would be attending. I know that this is going to be a bit tough due to it being so far away, with no solid date, and with not official anything. But having a rough estimate would help when seeking out camp grounds, hotels, # of shirts for shirt pricing, etc.
SO if someone could gather an estimate from your respective group that would be eggselent.
