Keep these dates in mind... if you're into that sorta thing.
We could run over there from Chesaning, MI for a few days and then back for
the Chesaning Showboat http://www.chesaningshowboat.org/ on the 16th.
We have kinfolks "involved" in the Showboat thing.
Well, if you draw a circle 3 hours in any direction, you'll be looking
at 15 million + population. Detroit, Toronto, etc... even Buffalo
(although we're trying to keep that quiet...;-) kidding, Jack..)
Chicago is only 5 hours.. not too bad of a hike for a week of Canadian
I drove by some of the parking areas and many are from Michigan,
Illinois, Indiana, Ontario and some Ohio and Quebec as well.
The entertainers like it, because Michele pays her bills. The tanker
trucks, loaded with beer, have easy access too. lol
Never any problems either.
Ah, Watkins Glen. Five Grand Prix races: '73-'75, '77, '79. Those were
the days. Even did the Canadian GP at Mosport in '74.
More recently the vintage car races there in '03:

I haven't tried the IRL thing, but my most recent experience with
NASCAR (at Charlotte) convinced me that the smell of spilled beer
doesn't add a thing to the racing. Too, I decided that if I hoped to
retain what little is left of my hearing, NASCAR tracks ain't the
places to visit, at least during race time. I'm happier, too, with the
ability to back off and rest when the races get too intense, so mostly
I stick with vintage cars. I think the Glen race is sometime in
September, but I'll check before we start driving.
I used to be a die-hard CART fan, then IRL. Watched them race at Texas,
Kansas, Nashville, Michigan, Indianapolis, and Phoenix but with HDTV and a
big screen, and a whole lot less hassle with traffic, not to mention
...age.... I'll catch them on ESPN and ABC.
Yep... NASCAR is getting worried about both the
attendance and the following which both are going
They closed all the tracks in the states that started
the sport and wonder where all their support went.

They are reasonably quiet.
The crowds are small enough, as are the cars.
The investment is modest.
The titts are smaller but, what would you expect at that scale.
