Less than 60 days to go until C&B 2009! As we
continue to follow 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.
Due to the generosity of one of our good friends, Ashleigh, we will be having
souvenir t-shirts available after all! We trust that our usual cast of big
donating characters (and some new ones too) will be on hand for the pre and post
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.
Can't make it to Indy this year? Worry not-- 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
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 still 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. Have your company or
group listed on our Sponsors page.
