Thanks to Mods and Event Staff at the Fest

First time attending Fest and I had a blast. Drove 11 hours to attend and I have to say I would do it again. Met some cool people over the four days I was there and that was probably the best part of Fest.

I would also like to thank the Mods that organized the event. With something this large a lot of work went into planning and organizing. Most attendees probably don't understand what had to happen months prior to make the event run smoothly. Again, a special thanks to you guys and gals.

Meeting a few of the Mods was awesome as well. I meet Camaro Spike and Mindz and I had a conversation with Mindz about a few PM's I sent him months ago. Great guy from my take.

I know some will complain, but that can be expected. I am sure more people had a good time than the ones that didn't. With that being said thanks again for everything.

I too wish to thank everyone. This was my first car show ever and had a real nice time, got to hang out with my mom and meet some really cool people. The only negative to come out of this is that I think I have caught the Camaro bug - may have to leave work early tomorrow to clean the car from the drive back home....

It was a pleasure to put a face to the screen name. I'm glad you had a good experience.

You are an inspiration to us all Richie. Sorry to read about the shifter and scratch. I look forward to what else you plan to do to your car.

We had a blast hosting you all. And that point is negative or positive depending on who you ask

The host hotel was a fest in itself. I got me to meet Camaro spike for a brief moment. Met PQ and his wife Bonnie, Mr. and Mrs. Tag Ur it, and Sir Nuke. It was a pleasure to finally meet and talk with them. Such a great time.

Yes, thanks to the staff, all the sponsors and the vendors who set up and endured the heat etc. Fest went well. The two days kinda thinned out the crowds.

Can't believe so few cars drag raced. No staging line at all on Friday. Maybe they were all in line at aac getting ghost lights.

Special thanks to Ted, Tony and Janetty's whole crew for replacing my axle in short notice. You Guys Rock.

A HUGE thanks to all involved at putting this together. A very successful event IMO. My wife and I had a great time. I was especially impressed by the presence from Chevrolet with a lot of cars and personel.

I wasn't even there and I feel like I need to thank all the people who organized and made this event happen. Thank You all. I just live a hop, skip, and a jump from Indy. Im kind of new around here and did not have my beans together to be prepared to go. I hope to make it next year. From reading all the threads and posts on the site, it sure looks like a good time.

Thanks to everyone that made this work, the mods, vendors, chevy guys and everyone who came. There was some great unique cars there and great people as well. And especially a big thanks to the ladies and the guys that ran the open bar in the parking lot friday night. 10 hour drive and I would do it all again next weekend if we could.

We certainly appreciate the gratitude.

But, the fest would be just the mods talking about how cool it would be to have a fest if you all didn't show up to make it a reality.

You guys, the members and your families, are the reason we can have this event.

thanks so much for making it worth it!

Yanno, I had a blast. Saw a bunch of sweet Camaros, met several good people, got to meet Bonnie , and had a fantastic damn time.

No matter how good something goes off, people will always complain about something. The weather wasn't hot enough, it was too hot, etc etc etc...

Bottom line: Thanks for coming out, thanks for the bad ass Fest, and thanks for all the really cool people who I talked to!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Glad you had fun. It was good to meet you too! We'll have to work something out to hang out during my trips to NC

Damnit people, like the mod ego here is not big enough, now they get their own "thank you" thread. Like they were not hard enough to deal with before. Quit kissing their asses. Afraid they will ban you, take away your post count, move your posts, delete your posts, send you a warning, drive to your house and beat you? (spike might do that one). Step up to them, they are only here because we visit the site without us, they have no one to mod!!!! good job mods, you guys went beyond you duties to make this a awesome event. I saw most of you running around busting your asses. Except for spike(he was too busy scaring me with his stories) and sse 4 2ss(he was too busy stroking Brandi). All your hard work paid off at a great event. Now that their ego has been stroked more I am going to need to widen my door frames for Doug's head!
