Camaro Corral for Sahlen's 6 Hrs of the Glen
1 Attachment(s)
June 28th-30th

Please try and join us for the 3rd Annual Camaro Corral Grand Am Race Weekend June 28th-30th at Watkins Glen. This event will be organized by UpstateC5 Camaro Club and is open to any Camaro or Firebird owner. Tickets will be $30/person (19 & under free) for the weekend and includes a spot in the turn 1 car corral as well as paddock access. We also hope to be able to get on the track for parade laps following Saturday’s race depending on the track schedule. I have requested a presence from Chevrolet and have obtained support from the people at Grand Am. We will also be setting up some team tours and tech talks and hopefully will have some hot lap pace car ride-alongs available via a drawing. For anyone interested in attending this event please post in this thread. More details to follow as things are setup. We hope to eclipse our turnout of 35 cars from last year so mark your calendars.

Corral Cookout- To be held at Steve's campsite on the backstretch Saturday at 4:00

Here is the item template for the Cookout. I will provide pulled pork & smoked turkey breast. Steve will provide burgers & hotdogs. I tried to break it up equally. PM me or post in this thread the item # and what you plan to bring. That way as the list is updated, we won't get a lot of duplication. If you want to bring something not categorized below, let me know and I can add it. Trying to keep things simple and not have too much left over. For quantity divide number of entries in the category by 40 and that should be a close enough estimate as to amount you need to bring. You can never have enough plates & napkins, though.

We'll have to bring lots of bungie cords to secure those canopies to the fence! :lol: I think we spent more time keeping them from blowing over than we did watching the race!
