Opening Ceremony 2005 International Rally

Can someone tell me when the opening ceremony for the Springfield International Rally will be, or if there even is such an opening? My husband will be able to attend the entire rally; however, because of my work schedule, I will have to come and go. I especially want to see the formal opening if there is one.

Also, can anyone direct me to a site that might provide, at least, a skeletal itinerary of the rally's activities and programs?

Thanks.

Marian

one of my "peeves" about the organization is that they don't publish this information in advance. must be "top secret" or something.

IMO, it is one HUGE missed opportunity for the club, to not put this info on the main page of the website. but you will barely find a mention of it there. So many potential new members that might be interested in taking a look.

a few years ago, when the rally was being held in my neck of the woods, I was in the same situation as you. only had a limited time to check it out, and wanted to pick the "best" couple of days. no dice. I even called Jackson Center...they didn't know anything, either.

c'mon, SOMEbody knows what's going on when. It was written down and sent to a printer so they could print up program books. and you know that sort of thing has to be done way in advance. But nobody seems to know who that person is, or where that info might be.

The Opening Ceremony is scheduled for 10:00am on Tuesday, June 28th at the Expo Hall. I only know because I will be participating in it...I don't know exactly where the Expo Hall is...but I'm sure there will be signage and maps.

The Expo Hall is just a couple blocks east of downtown Springfield, on St. Louis Street. I don't think you can get to the parking lot or garage from St. Louis St., though. You have to go one block north to Trafficway.

From 744 and US 65, take US 65 south to the next exit, Chestnut Expressway. Go west approximately 2 1/2 miles to National Ave. South on National to the next light - which is Trafficway. The Expo parking garage is on the south side of the street, about three blocks west of National Ave. There may also be a parking lot in use a 1/2 block farther west on the north side of Trafficway.

Thanks Mark...guess we could always take the shuttle and not have to worry about parking or maps at all!
