“We’re doing it again…”
Yes, it’s true. The Indiana Region has cemented their position as the region hosting the most Grand National type events in CLC history. We will host the Grand National for 2019 in Louisville KY from June 11-15, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza hotel…that’s meet number 5 for those of you keeping track! The host hotel – the Crowne Plaza is about as close as you can get to the Louisville International Airport – there’s event a hotel shuttle for your convenience.
Meet coordinators Beth & Bill Reedy have scheduled a fantastic array of events that will leave you glad for a chance to finally sit down at the banquet on Saturday night. These include our driving tour which Jeff Shively has arranged through scenic Southern Indiana. We will even get across the beautiful Ohio River without paying a toll! We will enjoy a look at the Clem Long car collection in Huntingburg IN. And when Jeff arranges a tour, you KNOW the lunch will be fantastic. We will stop at the Schnitzel bank Restaurant in Jasper IN for a German feast. Wonderbar! Afterward, we may want to take a nap rather than continue the tour to French Lick and West Baden IN for a quick roll of the dice at the casino or take a long look at the vastness and beauty of what – at the time constructed – was the largest unsupported dome roof in the world. Jeff has decided to let us relax and enjoy the countryside of the Hoosier State rather than make a multitude of twists, turns and stops.
Early Thursday evening, we will take a short venture to Churchill Downs for an evening that includes dinner, racing and a session with a handicapper. We will have the entire floor of one of the suite areas of the Downs with indoor and outdoor spaces for just our group as well as a chance to get up close to the horses in the paddock. Bring your Kentucky Derby wear and feel like a celeb for the evening.
Friday morning’s big tour is to the Corvette Museum a short drive down I-65 in Bowling Green KY. We will not only tour the museum but have a (seldom-seen) peek into the “back room,” and a tour of the assembly plant. We will be the first car club to visit the museum after its reopening in June 2019. This will be a tour limit of 150 so you’ll have to book early for this one.
Friday evening, we will enjoy a dinner cruise on the Ohio River on the Belle of Louisville, our famous paddle wheeler. This a southern BBQ on the menu, the sounds of a mellow DJ in the background and the beautiful river scenery, this cruise will be a delight. Limited to 225 guests, our cruise will sell out fast.
Also, during the week, we will enjoy tours to horse parks, distilleries, car collections and quaint towns in both Kentucky and Indiana. We’ll taste some culinary specialties like the Hot Brown, the Mint Julep, Kentucky Bourbon Balls and Derby Pie.
We are looking forward to extending our Hoosier Hospitality a little south of the border as we welcome you to Louisville!
PS - Our host hotel will be at the 2018 Grand National to assist with you with reservations for 2019 and there will be something special for those who register at that time.
