Florida is bracing for the impact of Hurricane Irma in a few days, and the good folks at the National Corvette Museum are doing their part to help out their friends to the south.
The Museum announced yesterday that the Bowling Green community – a second home for many Corvette enthusiasts – is opening its doors to anyone fleeing from the powerful hurricane expected to hit the Sunshine State this weekend.
The Museum says its parking lots will be open and available, day and night, for anyone to park their vehicles, trailers, RVs, etc., while they wait for the storm to pass. RV guests can find the nearest dump stations at Beech Bend Park and KOA Campground in Bowling Green and Pilot Gas Stations in Franklin, Ky. (I-65 Exit 6).
Meanwhile, the Bowling Green / Warren County Regional Airport is offering aircraft free tie downs, and parking space is available, first come, first serve. Call 270-842-1101 for more information.
Unfortunately, hotel space in Bowling Green is limited through Saturday because the popular Holley LS Fest and a softball tournament are planned for this weekend, but NCM officials said plenty of rooms will be available starting Sunday. You can find out more by calling the Bowling Green Area Convention and Visitors Bureau at 800-326-7465. You can also reach the Museum from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT at 800-538-3883.
The NCM website also offers helpful lodging accommodation links at http://www.corvettemuseum.org/.
In closing, Museum officials said, “Our prayers are with you and your communities.”
