Final Countdown

May 10, 2009

Two-thirds of the field are now set for the 93rd running of the Indianapolis 500 mile race, and the your friends at C&B are officially in "crunch time".

Congratulations to Helio for grabbing the pole! Also worth congratulating are the several drivers that provided a lot of entertainment and drama for the first two days of qualifications: Alex Lloyd (Pink Lloyd and most excited team reaction after qualifying), Paul Tracy (is he in or is he out?), Vitor Meira (pull it--I can make it go much faster), Dan Wheldon (if they fix it, I'll put it in), Scott Sharp (I don't want to pay for two more plane tickets to Indy next weekend), and Sarah Fisher and Davey Hamilton (super, feel good teams and drivers).

TommyD has made it to the Speedway for the balloon festival and for the second day of qualification. Glenn has thus far been watching everything from home in Denver. Glenn has the motor home about half packed and will be ready to hit the road on Friday the 15th. TommyD will be doing everything in the early part of next week like most years. 

Watch out for us on Bump Day, as TommyD and Glenn are planning to be at the Speedway!

The beer gets ordered tomorrow, and we have held meetings with our designated food people Sue, and Mike. We are adequately prepared to quench the thirst and feed the hunger of our many guests.

We plan to be twittering (http://twitter.com/CampAndBrew) during the C&B festivities and will be providing super-special webcam coverage of Glenn's drive from Denver to Indianapolis starting this Friday evening, May 15. You can preview what this will look like today by going to http://cam.CampAndBrew.com

Just a reminder that in addition to having lots of fun, we are continuing our efforts to raise money for Brian's Wish, which supports ALS research.

Even if you're unable to attend C&B and/or the race, you can donate to the cause by going to http://donate.CampAndBrew.com or get a chance at winning up to $100 by getting in the 50-50 race pools at http://5050.CampAndBrew.com.

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 still accepting sponsors for our 2009 event. You can have yourself, group or company listed on our Sponsors page. Please contact us for sponsorship information!

Make sure you check back here (or better yet, follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/CampAndBrew,  for the latest news about Camp and Brew!
