What is Bonneville Fest 2004 © ?
<-- like that little ©....I do.
Bonneville Fest will be a 5 day, 4 night event revolving around Bonneville Club members with pre-organized events. Paid expenses will be the little background things that make everything run smoothly. Such as calling up the drag strip and setting up a few lanes for bracket racing or reserving seats at the Rockford Speedway. (more explained below)
You WILL have to pay for gas, most food, and hotel. However, a single hotel will be "reserved" as a central point for all BC members to stay each night.
Where will Bonneville Fest 2004 be?
Rockford, IL -- big city, with its good and bad areas. The hotel will be located just off of East State Street (the commercial area which is "well-off"). Rockford is big, lots to do, just please don't get lost. I've heard rumors of underground street racing syndicates running during the early morning hours...so trust me, LOTS to do.
When is Bonneville Fest 2004?
July 21st - 25th
What will we do at BonnieFest?

How will I get there?
This by far could be the easiest or hardest part of BonnieFest. You have to get there on your own. I will post an exact address of the park and hotel when time nears, but use Rockford, IL as a basic point. Carpool, make it a 5 day trip, drive 160mph to get there in a day, whatever...this is up to you.
How much will it cost?
$15.00 per person*
$5.00 per extra passenger*
*this may change, in other words...no fees at all
