Just testing the waters to see if anybody is up for a meet sometime this summer in or around Wisconsin!

Yes, but I hope there will actually be a turnout of other Midwest members.

I guess we could always do chicago. The last one we did was in LaCrosse. We also did one in Appleton.

Interesting idea but the when means more than the where for me. I only have Sat's off and even that is iffy if one of the other guys are on vaca that week. Now that it is summertime.....



So????

I'm still up for a meet; I can't make it to MASS-ive because of work conflicts that week. :angryfire: I don't, however, work weekends and most of the Midwest is within a fairly easy driving distance. So, fordtaurus2000, you suggested setting up a meet; where and when do you think would be good? FWIW, (Uh, oh... :jacked: ) it seems like somewhere equidistant between central Wisconsin and western Indiana will be the ideal spot for everyone who has responded; might I suggest a location up north towards the state line like Richmond, Island Lake, McHenry or Wauconda; that would probably work better as those who have responded here and might show up are mostly from the northern areas. I don't see locations for mscottc or 900Trophy, but I'd guess that somewhere a little further south than Wisconsin might be less of a distance for where they hail from. So conceivably, this Midwest meet could be for eight or nine: fordtaurus2000, 900Trophy, mscottc, ragjungle, dark_fire, JarodMacintosh, SteveRC, maybe corey, and myself. Sounds like a great time, let's try to coordinate when everybody's available and get this one off the ground! :forum_Logo:

I was just looking at map quest and Peoria and Moline is about a 3 hr drive from Brian_05_SEL's location and mine as well unsure of distance for anybody else, so if anybody is within the 3 hr range of the 2 locations like Chicago Il, Dubuque Iowa, St Louis Mo , and Indianapolis In would still be up for a meet that would be awsome

I want to plan a meet. I'm located in Sheboygan WI which is about 2.5 hours from Chicago We just need to find a place I guess in Ill and a date. I can take off work when ever I want.

Looking at other peoples location; Chicago are seems to look the best. Does someone have a house or a mall tha twe could meet at. Then fry out or go out for dinner? Since I'm not from Ill , I'm leaving you guys to pick a location.


***********Otherwise ************

If you guys dont mind driving north - you could come to Milwaukee and we could go to the Harley Davidson Museum. Just a thought. That might get some more Wisconsin people.


Last time I was i nChicago for a meet It was at Jrods house..... Hey Jrod!!!!!!

Busse Woods is five minutes from my house, and Woodfield Mall is also nearby- the largest mall in Illinois, one of the biggest in the Midwest. The Schaumburg/Elk Grove area sounds like a winner to me.

Here is the location of Busse Woods; Grove #17 is in the upper-left corner, where the Focus Nation meet will be held. :thumb:

Busse sounds good, very unsure about the 4th though due to family obligations.


I remember wanting to do last years but was rained out in morning. :dunno:

If you give me a time of day it sounds good to me, Schaumburg is only 3 hrs from my house so it shouldn't be a long drive
