Mini STL Meet?

Hey, i don't know how close any of you guys are to St Louis, Missouri. But in a couple weeks i plan on being up in Columbia. I taught maybe a few of us could meet up at the arch take a few pictures and maybe catch some lunch or something?

Scott_AU said he would be there. Anyone else? I'm shooting for Saturday the 11th. We can work out more information if anyone else even comes.

FYI all you St. Louis people. The gateway arch looks nice from the outside, but paying $15 for the tram and going up there to see the city through a litle window and waiting 30 mins go get back down because only one set of trams were working was not fun. I would rather look at st.louis using google maps.

I don't know about the parking lot for the arch, but i do know there is a parking garage south west of the arch, it would be almost perfect for taking pictures, that is if you can see over the edge. From google map pictures the top of it didn't look very crowded, well it was fairly empty. I don't know if it would cost to get in or not but that might be a good spot.

I also taught about going across the river for the pictures, some where that the full arch is in the back ground is what i have in mind for pictures. I've looked around on google maps, i can't really find a good parking lot for the meet.



Another alternative is having the meet some where in Columbia. It's a bit further track for you Scott, but we might be able to get some KC guys to come also? I know a good spot for the meet in Columbia. We can fire up the grill at the park and grill some hot dogs and hamburgers for lunch.

Too bad I'll be heading to the other end of the Ave of the Saints that weekend! I'd love to meet with you all.

I'm starting to think about setting the date further back?

What do you guys think say the 18th?

cdmccul - you know it's a 5 and a half hour drive down here right? :P I'd love to get a nice sized group of people (5 or 6) would be awesome!

Like i said before, i plan on grilling up some hot dogs and ham burgers, having some chips and soda to drink wile we're there. Maybe doing a few little mods to my car and helping anyone else with their vehicles if they need it!

That is if it turns out to be big enough to even worry about?

Yea, I know it's 5+ hours down there, but I've only been to StL at the airport, and I enjoy driving. Besides, if I hold a meet locally here, I think it'd just be me and nick! I haven't heard from any other folks local to me in a good while *grins*.
