Recommended Posts

After debate most of us interested in meeting are free September 8 & 9. We also agreed on having a meet day followed by a day for drag racing. Here is the schedule as it is now.

 

September 8th 11:30am Meet at Gilmore auto museum

 

http://gilmorecarmuseum.org/

 

After we meet we can have lunch at the diner inside the museum and check out the exhibits.

 

Saturday night change! I am now proposing Four Points as it is cheaper then holiday inn. Description says they have a bar & grill open for lunch and dinner. Those staying can meet up for dinner and maybe share a couple cold beers.

September 9th 10:30 am meet at Stanton Dragway

 

http://www.midmichmotorplex.com/

 

Stanton has an open test day that Sunday. Schedule says 10-4 so it is probably tech at 10am race 11.

 

Please chime in if you are planning on coming. If a bunch of us can get together this might be something we can try annually, possibly at different locations.

I really want to make it Anthony. Getting my kitchen remodeled the beginning of that week, so if all goes well. I plan on being there, and actually after looking at my calendar I think my remodel starts the week before I'll will have to double check with the builder. But in the coming weeks I would like to see how many plan to make it.

bpd had posted hes go in the first thread so hopefully that is still the case. I just emailed Rick, hopefully he can make it as well. darreli was the one that threw out the racing idea, but never chimed in on the date.

 

Hope to hear from these guys and more. Right now we would be 6 give or take, would prefer 10+ but a small meet is better than no meet in my book.

I will try to make Stanton on Sunday... won't know for sure until we get closer... I haven't run there in a few years' date=' but was always a nice track...[/quote']

 

MAKE IT! I am really looking forward to hitting the track. I do not recall another ecoboost at any of the tracks I have been to. Maybe an F150 but never an SHO or Flex. It will be a good time.

 

Also looking forward to see what you meth injected guys do in what will hopefully be a cool day.

Have any of you, or could any of you, advise on the different prices for each portion of this event?

 

Museum = ?

Parking for above = ?

 

Track cost(s) = ?

 

I'm sure this would be of som ehelp to those who still may be considering attending.

 

On behalf of all who are viewing this thread, thanks :thumb:

Track is showing test & tune is $25.

 

Hotel... Maybe I didnt pick the best one. I picked the Holiday Inn because it said rates from $80 and Raddison said from $130. Just went through a trial book and Holiday Inn came up $130. I will try booking through some travel sites and see if it is cheaper, and/or email them asking for a discounted rate.

Expedia has that Holiday Inn for $115. If that is to pricey I would suggest the Country Inn (79 on Expedia), I have stayed at a few and they have been very nice. No bar & grill though, Holiday Inn is the cheapest I have found with a bar.

 

Update: four points by Sheraton has a bar, and is $99. How about that as a cheaper/ good alternative? Will post website.

thanks for looking into that, the price i would i guess want the cheapest but it depends if its farther away or a dump, plus it depends on what other people are doing, maybe if a certain hotel has a bar/restaurant etc. we can stay there or at least close to whoever lives in that area, but im sure thats gonna cost more but is cool just wanna see if people are planning on staying over night or wanna chill at that bar or somewhere else, but im almost done for anything, almost lol

I will have to stay in a hotel as well. I am all for having a couple beers with a few of you guys but I dont want to walk or drive. I dont want to walk or drive to drink here and I know my way around and even know some of the cops. Would much rather just take an elevator up to my room :)

well paul i hope and will most likely 99% come thru and especially if i can have my meth kit installed if i come down that way, otherwise i can think of a few things better to do and save for instead of driving 12-13 hours each way for nothing lol, but hopefully i can get this installed and give me a extra ins. reason to come down a day or 2 early and get this installed by a couple of GREAT GUYS OUT THERE AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE GUYS!!! LOL thanks
