I am planning on coming. Not sure if I'll be alone or bring my girlfriend or not. Lol :ph34r: but I don't think I'll have anything come up to stop me. I vote the 10th though

I'd like to see some kind of consensus before we (namely, me :mellow:) go and pay for a reserved pavilion. To that end, there is now a poll at the header to this topic so we can see how this meet will work best with a maximum of attendees.

Also, what does everybody think about making this into a multi-day meet, like say Saturday evening through Sunday?

Well, the park rules is we cannot charge for the event, but I don't see why we can't ask for donations for the event.

I am open for either 3 or 10. And ofc, I am up for burgers. Anyone a great griller and want to volunteer? I am okay at it but not great.

Who is that weird guy wearing a Rex Grossman jersey and Cubs hat driving that beautiful 97 Medium Willow green taurus?

Just some mentally ill dude who showed up. It took us a few hours to get rid of him.

Sorry I've haven't chimed in. Been out of the country, again.

IF I'm IN the country Oct 3 or 10, I'd be glad to make either one of those dates, but my schedule has been so crazy lately I can't control where I'll be so don't plan around me. If I'm in town - I'll be there.

I cannot make it on the 3rd whatsoever. 10th is the only possibility for me right now...

There will most likely be pictures posted for your enjoyment though :)

Looking good for me.:D

I'll probably bring my Rosemist SHO.

That alone is worth driving 10 hours to see. Such a rare beautiful automobile.

I think it looks like the 10th will work best for everyone, so let's plan just for the 10th then :)

Updated the title to reflect this. ;) Sounds like a good plan!

I'll be able to make it for the 10th. Has a location been decided then? It will probably be a 4hr drive for me (coming from Iowa) I might bring a friend too.

^^ This should give you driving directions to the meet location.

^^ This shows the exact pavilion we're planning to use. Grove #17 is the first public pavilion on the right after you've entered the forest preserve from Higgins Road.

I've been hoping for the best and haven't said anything but I really just got screwed over with work and due to lack of funds ATM I'm not going to be able to attend next weekend. I can't afford te trip and also will probably get stuck working all next weekend for extra money. I hope you guys have fun and I will make the next one no matter where it's at. Guess things just happen for a reason and I got the short end of the stick.

Still not able to commit 100%. Phone rings = I'm on the next plane out to ???

If I'm there, 100% chance of a Rosemist 96 SHO sighting, 80% chance of a supercharged 96 SHO with power folding mirrors and a handbrake as well. Oil leak + lack of time = SHO R T S might stay home.

Is this meet in need of any donations? I recall talk of a site retainer fee or something like that.

Refreshments will be provided... Chicago-style. ;)
