Chicago area meet 7/30-8/1
I know some people were really wanting to have a Chicago area meet that wasn't as short notice as the last one, so I just wanted to see how many people were interested in having a meet at the end of this month, as in, if we (the local people) had one, you would show up. I know some of you like myself couldn't go to Carlisle for whatever reason or are itching for a meet just because, so I wanted to see who'd be interested for the last weekend in July.
Now that we have a date, we want to know what it is those attending would like to do at the meet and how many days most people could do it. For example, people can come in from various places at various times on Friday afternoon and once everyone interested in coming before a certain time Friday arrives, we can all go out to lunch/dinner as a group so as to break the ice or what have you. Then Saturday would be the Show n' Shine part of the meet, sharing stories, showing off cars, etc., and finally Sunday we could do drag racing. This is just a possible scenario to throw out there, it is NOT set in stone.
Also, things to get out of the way, we are in no way responsible for arranging hotel rooms, handing out of any sort of awards, or covering any of your expenses, so if you get a ticket on the way, that's your problem. For anyone wanting to know why there's no handing out of trophies or whatnot, there's a few reasons. One, no matter who gets what award or how many, SOMEONE isn't going to be happy about something, so we completely eliminate chance for that, period. This isn't a show we're planning, it's a meet. Two, because several attendees do not drive vehicles that can be classified together with Intrepids, so judging would be rather difficult.
So, for those interested in getting this meet going in 3 weeks from this weekend, tell us what you'd like to do, how many days you're likely to stay, what you'd like to do (any and all suggestions welcomed), and any other general comments, questions, concerns, etc. that you may have. If you prefer to make a comment in private, feel free to PM either sami, myself, or raztrep and we'll try our best to have an answer for you, but no guarantees. As soon as we feel we have enough comments and suggestions, we'll put something together and let you know soon as we can. If you're looking for a specific date, I think sometime early next week, like Tuesday night or so we'll have the whole event schedule written out because I want to have people come back from Carlisle so they can read and respond accordingly.
As a final comment, this show is NOT for Intrepids only, bring whatever you got, we do.
So let's see what you guys and gals would like to see and do at the end of this month and we'll try to keep all parties interested happy.
