Ok, I've made a poll as suggested to see what date works for everyone. I'm assuming a Saturday or Sunday would work for most people best, but of course just let us know if another day works better and we'll see how many people are flexible. I'm just going with July and August so we have enough time to make some decent plans. We'll get to the place after we establish a date.

Also please only participate in the poll if you..umm..actually plan to attend. Wouldnt want to skew the numbers with people who are doubtful anyway.

Not to worry King Steve, that was me that checked all of them. Because I would really like to have one up here.

If at all possible, how about making a vote for at least a state for right now. Then after all the results are in an exact place. By the way, when are you going to "close" the vote?


PS, I'm not so much the king of typos any more. lol So yes you were able to read all of this.

I'm not sure how to include multiple polls in one thread, but I figured it would make sense to see first who is even going to be able to attend (based on the dates), and then those would be the people giving their input on the state. I left this current poll open for 60 days but of course that doesnt mean we wont be making a decision before that. So anyway I think I'm gonna wait a little to do the state poll just to make sure we have the same people voting in each poll. Just a reminder to everyone please select every date you can make it in this poll, and if you PREFER some over others, just say so in a comment. We want to be able to include as many people as possible, so please participate in the poll if you want to attend! Thanks KOT for starting things off.

Even though I put July 25th on there originally when I made it, I realized I can't go as I have a work obligation that day. I clicked all the other days in the poll jsut to include myself for accurate numbers.
Anthony I suggest you go ahead with the poll even though you're available all the days, because at the end we'd like to see how many people to expect so that way you'd be on there too.
Cady97..you think your buddy you mentioned will be available too on those days you picked? Just hoping to get as many people as possible. Thanks guys...lookin forward to this

Deselected July 25th due to King Steve's note. All other dates are good. Now how about a state or metro area vote? May I suggest the Craigslist area list, or is that too varied? As we all know, Stamford, CT is way different from Hartford and Mystic, for instance.

Well so far alot of people are saying to have it in Mystic, Connecticut. Ironically, I live in Ledyard which is the next town over. Personally it doesn't matter to me where we have the meet, that is if we were to have it other than Mystic.

But since most of us are saying Mystic, my question would be where in the town? Ya'll have to think about this too. Because according to the poll so far, August 2nd is going to be in the busiest time of the year for Mystic.

I have however gone to MJ Sullivan (http://www.mjsullivangm.com/HomePage) in New London, Connecticut quite a few times. I have shopped there, but never bought a car. Just parts here and there that I really didn't need. Just doing some mods with my past cars. But anyways, I know that they have a huge lot. Most of which the back is empty. After reading some other people's post, I could go down there and ask the manger about having a meet there. Some how get a grill or what not.

Let me know what ya'll think.


PS No making fun of my southren talk. Ya hear? lol

Honestly I'm totally unfamiliar with any dealerships outside of rhode island..so if you guys want to do the dealership thing, someone else will have to choose where. Still wondering if Legend and Trickstr might be able to manage august 2nd, since that's been the highest picked date so far..

05-31-09, 06:40 PM
sundays are great for us look forward to meeting everyone in the Cadillac world!

It was just a thought is all. What is legend and trickster?

Yeah, not saying it's a bad thoguht..just don't know anything about CT dealerships. Legend and Trickstr were the 2 people who voted in the poll who didn't select August 2nd. Just hoping to include as many people as possible, and it looks like so far 8/2 is the best date for most people.

06-02-09, 05:04 AM
With enough notice I should be able to make any date.

06-04-09, 05:05 PM
Well I went down to MJ's earlier today and asked them about having the meet there. The person who I spoke with said he wasn't sure but will give me a call...
An hour later he called me and it's they can't be the host. Due to insurance reasons, too many law suits I guess.

So it looks like some where in Mystic if that turns out the be the choice. Question is, where in Mystic? I may live right down the street. But I hardly ever go there so I have no idea where a good place would be.

I also don't really know Mystic that well...

06-05-09, 04:08 PM
I voted for Sundays because they're usually more free for me. However, that depends on where the meet(s) is / are and how far I'm driving to get there.

King Steve,

I am guessing the next poll could be at what kind of venue we want this to be at...

A park. Whether that would be a "busy" or not so "busy" park.

Race track where we could watch a race?

Drag track, where we could not only watch but have our cars in it? But only for those who wants to have theirs in would pay their portion. Of course there would be an entry fee, but I'm talking about the fee for racing.

A dyno test building, like the one that Trickstr (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/northeast/165329-new-england-meet-realistic-3.html#post1897198) had mentioned. Which I had found out that $65 a head is pretty cheap. Now that we have like 5 people more at this point, maybe it could even be lesser on that date.

Ok, maybe you're right...it is time to make a poll for that part of it, since it looks like we've established 8/2 as the best day..

King Steve
06-09-09, 11:55 AM
First though I'm wondering if there are more places I should include...anyone else have any more ideas to add to a poll on the type of place we'll do this at?
