This is our 9th edition of informative postings for our Vettes On The River participants and interested parties and the last one before VOTR. We want to equip our Drivers & Navigators with all the information they need in order to make for a fantastic experience.
Online Registration Is Closed – But, You Can Still Show Up and Register On-Site on August 25th. Here’s How
563 Corvettes are already registered. We typically get a decent number of people show up and register on-site so our total number of Corvettes in attendance could very well be approaching the 600 mark!
Since getting your VOUCHER printed and displayed on your dash is such an important component of getting our Corvette drivers parked efficiently, we are going to lead off with Voucher information in every edition of our Rumblings.
VERY IMPORTANT… MAKE SURE TO PRINT THAT VOUCHER
Judging by some of the questions we’ve received via email, there are still people who are confused about their voucher. Your voucher was included in the confirmation email you were sent when you registered. If you did not get a confirmation email, it most likely ended up in your junk or spam folder. So for anyone who is confused about vouchers, this link should help you. https://vettesontheriver.com/how-do-i-get-my-voucher/
Your Voucher is your ticket into Vettes on the River. Please print your voucher and have it on your dash as you enter the show. This will get you parked at the correct location and expedite the parking process. If you arrive as a club, make sure you are all lined-up together and have the lead driver let our volunteers know how many Corvettes are in your group.
Check Your Voucher for Parking Location – Take a look at the top right of your voucher… There should be a large “L” or “S” printed. The “L” designates you will be parking on the Levee. Follow the signs that indicate the “L” parkingarea and our volunteers will help get you parked. If your voucher has the “S” designation, you will be parking on the street across from the levee. Not to worry, all the streets designated for Corvette parking are closed to public transit for the duration of the event. Follow the signs that indicate the “S” parking area and our volunteers will help get you parked.
Please check our website first before emailing us. There is a search button right at the top of our home page. You can type in a subject and get results for it. We encourage you to visit the website often and explore. There is a ton of useful information there intended to help you make the most of your time at the show and in the town of LeClaire. Check it all out! Visit Our Website
GOODY BAG PICK-UP
All pre-registered participants will receive a goody bag upon arrival. Once you have parked, please come down to the registration tent and pick-up your goody bag. There are a lot of useful items in these bags, as well as game cards for some of our activities. Each bag also contains a poster of the newest Corvette – The ZR1.
PICK-UP YOUR VOTR APPAREL
If you pre-ordered your Vettes on the River apparel, you can pick-up your order at the registration tent. Your order is bagged and ready for you with your name on it. Once you have parked your Corvette and pick-up you apparel order, please check it and make sure the contents are accurate. We want you to be happy with your VOTR purchases.
EXTRA TRAFFIC HELP FROM LECLAIRE OFFICERS
This year we have additional traffic control help from the Scott County Deputy Sheriff’s department and the LeClaire Police department to assist us. As you enter LeClaire on highway 67 from the south, there will be signs to temporarily park off to the side of the highway as you wait to enter the event. Not to worry, the side of the highway has been paved so you won’t have to deal with any rocks or gravel. This will reduce the potential of having long lines of Corvettes on the highway while others are trying to just through town. The LeClaire Police will also be helping to direct Corvettes off to the side of the highway at peak times.
At the end of the event, officers will also be on-hand at 4:00PM to help expedite traffic off the levee and Corvette side-streets to get you on the road and headed home. They will be stationed at both levee exits and highway 67 intersections. REMEMBER… WHEN LEAVING THE EVENT, DO NOT STOP OR GET YOUR CORVETTE CAUGHT ON THE RAILROAD TRACKS!!! Make sure you plan ahead to be stopped safely on either side of the railroad tracks.
BE SAFE & HAVE FUN
With an estimated 600 Corvettes descending on the river town of LeClaire, it’s going to be a little congested on the main highway 67 as we open the event. We have made some major modifications to our traffic control process to fast-flow the parking… and now we need your help…PLEASE BE PATIENT with our Volunteers and Law Enforcement.
Our volunteer set-up crews have between the hours of 6AM and 8AM to prep the levee and close streets for our Corvettes to park for the day. That’s not much time to prep, but we get it done! Now for your part… Please do not start lining-up at the gate before 7:45 as this creates a massive line of cars (both Corvettes & other drivers) through the city and down the highway. This creates frustration for the folks who just want to get through town to their next destination. For safety reasons, we can’t open the gates early due to all the volunteer and equipment moving activities. Lastly, be nice to our volunteers… they are trying to get you parked at your designated location as quickly and as safely as they can. Then it’s time to get your “Pride & Joy” parked, and enjoy the show.
More to come…
Look for a 2018 event wrap-up edition on Vettes On The River Rumblings in the coming days.
