By the time you read this, the first of four RV's that will comprise the 2010
C&B Compound will have arrived in Indy with the others to follow. The lot
pre-inspection occurred (as well as the first C&B Longs Doughnuts consumed) on
Rumors that there will be 2 couches at C&B this year, may in fact be true.
Rumors that for a $10 Donation to Brian's Wish you'll get a free souvenir cup,
T-Shirt and beer have once again been confirmed! Rumors that all 5 women that
are attempting to make the 2010 500 field, will be spending the night before the
race at C&B are just rumors, as far as you know. ; )
Other on-site amenities that we can confirm are: Beer, soft drinks, Chez Bubba
pulled pork sandwiches, several other delightful meats, popcorn machine, porta
potty (courtesy of the fine folks at
t-shirts, cups and beer. Did we mention beer?
As always, our expectations of raising money for
Brian's Wish are high for
2010 and we hope to eclipse last years total of $5,535 with an amount that
breaks THAT record. We could not collect so much without the overwhelming
generosity of the many people who support our event by donating in person,
donating at our website, or from participating in our online 50-50 race pools!
(Click here to donate
online) In total, monies raised through C&B to help with ALS/Lou Gehrig's
disease awareness and research is over $26,300 in just the first 8 years of C&B.
Thanks for all your support.
As always, we'll be setting up in the Coke Lot at C&B corner, on Thursday, May
26 and will be ready for visitors by about noon. Make sure you plan on stopping
by often to enjoy race-talk with other fans, hoisting a cool beverage (we do
have non-alcoholic beverages), and helping us support
Brian's Wish. Follow us on
Facebook and be tantalized by our
Tweets - Even if
you can't make it to the Coke Lot, you can still follow us from home with our
web cams too.
Remember, a generous donation at C&B of over $10 will net you a free C&B
T-Shirt, a C&B cup and fermented barley beverages as well. Donate early as
running out of T-shirts is again anticipated.
We can only hope that the weather will not forecast the month's weather pattern!
With the much shortened practice and qualifying schedules already affected, a
few really badly timed storms could create a lot of problems for Bump Day and
Carb Day. Not that C&B is any stranger to rain. We've dealt with it and needless
to say, will again.
In our 8 year run, we've never had to stay into Monday due to a rain delayed
500. We'd kinda like to keep it that way, although the Coke Lot would likely
clear out of less hearty campers if that happens. The left over muddy mess would
surely require us to utilize those extra pair of underwear we always bring each
SPECIAL NOTE: We often hear of people who have passed right by C&B, yet never
ventured in. Stop that! There is just a wire between us and the road, it is only
there because IMS installed it. A section of it would be removed if Glenn would
let Tommy alter it. (Glenn just doesn't want TommyD to be arrested) But it is
not an excuse to not come on over, introduce yourself, make a donation (Remember
$10.00 gets you a shirt!) and have a Brew, while talking racing or anything else
As always: "Don't expect a Camp and Brew invitation in the mail, because the
whole world is invited and we can't afford the postage." Come early, beer for
the whole world is not guaranteed!
See YOU at the 'Brew !
