Less than 100 days to C&B

February 10, 2009

Less than 100 days to go until C&B 2009! Following the project plan that Glenn has established, we are preparing the necessary supplies, accoutrements and various beverages to make May in the Coke Lot another one to remember.

We are a bit uncertain that we will be having souvenir t-shirts for C&B this year since our fund proposal was stricken from the bailout bill in Washington DC recently. But with or without them, we trust that our usual cast of characters (and some new ones too) will be on hand for the pre and post 500 festivities.

We've sent a email invite out the VERSUS Channel's newest IndyCar reporter, Lindy Thackston (further information available here) and her quick response indicated "I would love to come to the Camp and Brew! And maybe I can bring a few racing friends." Lindy grew up in Indiana, graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and served as a 2001 Indianapolis 500 Princess. It would appear she is well qualified to be on the broadcast team for the IndyCar season, and we look forward to seeing her come to Camp and Brew.

For those unable to attend in person, the C&B internet web cams will be running again in 2009. This year however, there will be a $2.95 per minute fee for watching the cams between 5:30pm and 3:30 am with a minimum $12.95 charge. Hey we're worth it right?!?! Just kidding, as always the web cams will be FREE! We will also be running our 50-50 race pools to benefit our chosen charity of Brian's Wish.

We will greatly miss Mackie aka 'The Mayor of Georgetown Road' and will be working on a tribute to him. To say we were shocked to hear of his passing just days after C&B 2008 is an understatement. He had been a fixture of C&B since at least our second year in 2003.

As always we are looking for a couch for the event. Our standards are pretty low, but cushions (mismatched or otherwise) at a minimum, are required. Do you live in Indy and have one you are willing to part with? How about a Grandma of yours that just doesn't remember where she puts things? Bring hers! See one on the curb somewhere that we can use? Haul it in and we'll thank you graciously!

We are also now accepting sponsors for our 2009 event. Sponsors will be listed on our Sponsors page. Please contact us for sponsorship information!
Stop back in a few weeks for additional updates!
