It's Superbowl meet time again!!!!

*EDIT - MEET WILL BE HELD IN MYRTLE BEACH, SC

Super Bowl XLV will be the 45th annual edition of the Super Bowl
The game will be played on Sunday February 6, 2011 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Kickoff time is approximately 6:25pm EST

This thread is to determine and communicate meet location, time, attendance, and a menu of some sort
This meet can last Fri, Sat, Sun - Whatever the attendees want.
The important thing is to get vacation, money, etc set aside now in the event that you can make it.

Starting the LIST !!!!

Gotta start a list. Formatting this always kicks my butt, hence the dots.
1 - Put your name plus the number of people you will bring with you.
2 - Put your preference of meet location.
3 - Put the days you will be attending.

So far we have hosts for the following potential meet locations: Daytrepper in Zebulon, NC and Dready in Myrtle Beach, SC
If either location is good for you put "Either". If we get another potential location, we'll figure out what to put at that time. Don't let the meet location make you opt out of attending. While it's best for everyone to meet at the same spot, if we end up getting an even split of people wanting to meet at the different locations we could potentially have 2 separate smaller meets. That way we are at least getting together

Here is the initial list. Update it with your information as necessary. To keep it neat, just quote the most updated post with this list and delete everything but the list and make your updates.

Typical Superbowl meet goes something like this:

People get into town on Friday or Saturday. Any car stuff would take place during the day. Sat night we try to do something as a group - dinner, bowling, etc. People rack out wherever. Sunday we hang out, fiddle with the cars a bit, get any last minute party supplies, cook the food-watch the game. Some leave right after the game, others stay overnight and head home Monday.


We also need to talk about grub. Typically folks chip in a few bucks so the host can get the food or whatnot for the game. We're talking $5-10 not including any alcoholic refreshments you may desire.
I'm coming with family so I'll toss in $10. If it was just me, I'd do $5.

If you have a particular favorite, list it. Normal menu includes chips, veggies and dip, boneless wings or whatnot. Most anything you can cook is feasible. When we have a grill, we cookout on it. Burgers, dogs, chicken, corn on the cob...
I have to give props to the BOD. They do a great job of hooking up the food. If you don't know what the BOD is, you're fortunate.

I'll add an update for 01Intrepid as well. Still update the list with the days you'll be attending and if you are brave enough to bring food with you

So as Dan mentions, it's rather obvious that we will be holding the meet at Myrtle Beach. Dready says that the house can accomodate the 20 or so potential attendees.

As for hotels, we usually try to pick the same hotel or ones right next to each other for convenience. Sometimes if people have hotel points or whatnot they stay elsewhere. We should look for lodging in the North Myrtle Beach/Little River area.

OK. Now that we know where we will meet and who will most likely will attend, lets work on activities and menu.

Is there any light duty car maintenance stuff that someone needs done? plugs, inner tie rod bushings, etc? I actually need to replace the cradle bushings on the Limited, but I think I'll tackle that at my leisure in my driveway.

Myrtle is a tourist town with lots of things to do. putt-putt, go kart, bowling, etc etc. What do you all feel like?

Also chime in with what you want to munch on while we watch the game

Ohh. If it is any incentive Martin, there will be a long distance award for the person attending that travels the farthest. Reggie, Ben, keep your fingers crossed

You are forgetting the Falcons in all of that. Rated #1 in the NFL right now (last I checked)

If I drive the Trep (and not something else) then I definitely need the Spring Isolator bushings replaced. Id be buying the polybushings, but still. I would need new ones. they are falling apart.

And yeah, TONS of go kart stuff. Spent $100 in one day there when I was a kid just riding the different places

Boo-Yah!! Long Distance travel FTMFW

375 miles : 6 hours, 15 minutes


And For Those Worried About Where To Stay

Oh, and heres a list of places to stay in the North Myrtle Beach/Cherry Grove Pier area...pretty darn close to where Dready if I understand correctly...

I'm listing these in price, from lowest to highest. I included hotels, condos (and condo towers), and motels. I only did those with at least a 3.5/5 review rating. Most of them are 2-3.5 star places. None of these were more than $75 (before taxes and such) per night, with two adults and two kids. Even cheaper with less people, but this is a family event, so I figured I would use that as a template.

The top three overall choices IMHO for a group stay are in bold. Condos would work great, since most have double bedrooms, and for those comfortable with it, two couples could room together and save big money and still stay in a really nice place. They are great for families as well.
Ill edit it later with the sites I found those low prices on:

Quality Inn & Suites
Bay Watch Resort
Prince Resort
Avista Resort

Wyndam Towers on the Grove
Harbourgate Resort & Marina

Take a look at these (Google Them) and then say what is your favorite. Add more places if you so wish or know of a good place.

My Favorite:
Avista Resort - It has an indoor pool, great fitness center, great rates, beachfront, and great reviews. Plus, I've stayed there before, and it was REALLY nice. Especially for how low of a price it is

Need to wait until the new year to see how vacation will work out. Might work this into the schedule.

Not sure how 'light-duty' that is. I think you have to unbolt the strut mounts and use a spring compressor to take the strut apart. There is an upper and lower bushing on each spring.

Yeah, that is definitely a project. Not light duty by any means. The struts have to be removed and disassembled using a spring compressor. Might want to save that one for a fix-it meet.

Did not realize it...

how about Autostick on a 02+ ES that already has the "white plug" I need for the Autostick connector?
