Springfest 2018 in Helen, Georgia hot smiley
Posted by: ihscomputers ()

This weekend, we begin formal planning for the premiere regional Corvair event in the Southeast.

April 27 & 28, 2018.

Clarks Corvair Parts will be vending inside the Festhalle but they will NOT be buying cores/parts.

We will have a new event titled "Presidents Choice" that is replacing the Concours d'Elegance because of dwindling particpation in the Concours event.

Presidents Choice will award trophies for Best Paint, Best Interior, Best Engine and Best of Show as determined by the presidents of the four sponsoring clubs.

You can stay informed of the latest developments by regularly visiting the www.corvairspringfest.com site that offers hotel information and downloadable content such as the registration form, event rules, the weekend schedule as well as being mobile device friendly.

Reminder for all Corvair Center Phorum members: Please write CC="username" somewhere on the registration form so that it can be added to your nametag.
​EXAMPLE: CC=ihscomputers
This will make it easier for us to "put a face with a name"!

Yodelayeehoo! smiling bouncing smiley

Dean,

I see several hotels listed in the lodge section. Is there a preferred (host) hotel?

Officially, the Helendorf is the host (closest to the Festhalle). However, most stay at the Baymont (formerly Best Western).

SureStay (formerly Super 8) is also close to the Festhalle.

We've made our reservations and my brother and his wife are going to join us this year, will try to get him to drive my car in the autocross, might get him hooked. He has a 90s F-Body that needs a little love that would make a fun autocrosser but Corvairs are addictive.

I'll be there this year. Downloaded and completed the registration form a couple weeks ago before realizing it was last years.

Not going to vend, but may have some "unique" items for sale that I would be willing to deliver to Springfest. Will start a new thread when I have a list put together.

Richard,

I'm hoping to add the Corvair Center Phorum Member photo to the official schedule as well as adding a line to registration form for the "CC=member name" information needed for our nametags.

Stay tuned! thumbs up

Last year was my first Springfest and it was great. Unfortunately I have to agree with V8vair, the Mitty has been on my calendar for over 10 years now.

Shame they are on the same weekend. Does that usually happen?
Last year I made both happen.

Thanks,

Mike

How many are being forced to choose between Springfest and Mitty?
The shame of it all....

MtnVairMike (Mike),

As you can imagine, choosing a weekend that doesn't conflict with another event is very difficult.

Keep in mind that we also have competition from other groups trying to reserve the Festhalle in April.

The good news is that we have established 26-27 April for Springfest 2019 so that you can start planning now...thumbs up

We held our official planning meeting today to finalize the event including the registration form.

It will get posted once I receive it from the author.

I've got a little more HP but you have twice as many gears and I suspect a little more rubber on the ground but I may can keep up with you, we'll see, it's hard to beat a car that has stripes.
