Hello, All: President Jim Robertson and his Officers & Board Members proudly announce that the IN/KY VCA will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's Opening Day events on May 11, 2013. We will be based in (and have lunch in) the same Speedway suite overlooking the Pits as last year!! The package will include admission to the IMS grounds, VIP parking close by, PIT PASSES, and a light meal of hot dogs or hamburgers, as well as coleslaw, brownies, and soft drinks (The IMS controls all food and it's pricing). One can also roam the grounds and visit the historic automobile displays planned for that day. Anyone wishing to enter the Museum will need to pay at the Museum door. This would also obviously offer a roof over our heads, air conditioning, shelter from any rain, and restrooms. This year's event will cost $75.00 PER PERSON...payable in advance by check to be made out to: Blackburn Sports Marketing 9363 Tundra Drive Zionsville, In 46077 ALL entry tickets, passes, parking permits, etc. would be distributed the day of the event in the parking lot of Champion C-J-Dodge-R (4505 WEST 96th St, Indianapolis, IN [email protected] I-465 Exit 27) just before we depart for the IMS by this event's Chairperson, Steve Fess. PLEASE GATHER between 10:00 and 10:30 AM EDT (Indy, Cincy, Detroit, & Louisville are on EDT...Evansville and Chicago are on CDT...BE SURE to plan around this time difference if you live in the CDT Zone!!!). We will depart at 11:00 AM EDT SHARP. If one cannot meet the "caravan" at Champion BEFORE we depart for the IMS, provisions are being made by Blackburn Sports Marketing to meet said folks in the parking lot of the Brickyard Crossing Restaurant (located on 16th St...just outside IMS turn Two). More later. There are no refunds for "no-shows"...and this event will take place rain or shine. By the way, once again we will have a "trailing escort" to the IMS...who will also guard our Vipers for a total of 4 hours (until 3:00 PM EDT). The payment of this same Town of Speedway Police Officer will again be handled "privately" at no cost to the Club...thus insuring a worry free day at this event for our Members. Needless to say, this has been a complex deal to put together...but well worth the effort as the IN/KY VCA Officers feel that it will be a great event for our Regional Members and guests. Members are able to add guests at $75.00 per person. Thanks, Steve Fess, Membership Coordinator, VCA IN/KY Region, Inc.
