Northern Meet Summer 2011 Help Me Out!

So I have been thinking of having a meet in St. Cloud, MN for over a year now and I am thinking now is a good time to post about it. Spring fever is setting in and I am excited for summer. Now I am thinking last week in June (not set in stone but a good starting point) but I am having some problems thinking of fun things to do, this is where I need help lol. Obviously a meet in general would be great but I feel we need something to make it memorable. There are 2 race tracks less than an hour drive away and I am sure there would be something going on at one or the other. The one has an opportunity to drive on the track at certain times but is plenty expensive (300 is the cheapest...) Of course there is the typical bars, bowling, etc. in St. Cloud. I am really just trying to get a feel for what you guys may like to do? Give me some help haha!! Plenty of decent hotels and such too if anyone would want to make it more than a day long. There is some scenic driving around the area too that I can scope out this spring if you guys would be interested?

We are pretty much guaranteed 2 members will show up. Though the closer it gets the more I will be pushing it to you local members haha

But as I said please help me figure out what we should do haha. Ask me any questions about the area I should be able to answer most of them.

Thanks, Chris!

While I'm very interested in this, my work schedule when I'm in the States is unpredictable at best. I asked about interest in this about a year ago and didn't get much in the way of replies.

there has been a bit of interest on the other site. about 3 or 4 people already saying they would likely go. just need to find a good day or whatever to do it.

yeah it should be most people either already have said they have that weekend off or could have made it either weekend so it should work out just fine.

i am still thinking of ideas for what to do. we dont have any pull your part type yards around here (no chain ones anyway) there are a few yard that will let you get your own parts but most want to know what your looking for ahead of time. still trying to think of some scenic areas too that wouldnt be too far to go from the main st cloud area.

Turns out I might not be able to make it. As of right now, I'm slatted to go to England with one of my B-52s to the Air Tattoo air show over in Fairford, England.

Well, the rally is still on for me. My back injury has me temporarily grounded.

Any others going?
