I thought we should get something together again.... The last one really sounded like fun, and I think we should do another one, but maybe in a little different spot (so people around my area dont have to drive so far)......

Let me know what you all think!

Ive had good luck with simple meets..... Like just a BBQ.....

Track wouldnt be a bad idea either......

Im thinking somewhere in Ohio.... Cleveland looks about halfway for everyone (indiana people and PA guys.)

So your thinking rent out a camp/picnic area, have a BBQ bs etc.....
Some people might have to put themselves up in a hotel or something like that. Now the question is how many people are willing to do the drive. I personally don't care i love road trips.

We can do a theme park type thing isn't there one in ohio outside of cleveland or something that would be cool.

There is a Six Flags (http://www.sixflags.com/parks/worldsofadventure/index.asp). It's kinda south and east of Cleveland in Aurora, Ohio.
There's also Cedar Point (http://www.cedarpoint.com/) which is west of Cleveland in Sandusky.
As far as tracks (1/4 mile) there are two. Dragway 42 (http://www.dragway42.com/) in West Salem, Ohio and Norwalk Raceway Park (http://www.norwalkraceway.com) in Norwalk, Ohio.
Cedar Point and Norwalk are only 15-20 miles apart. Norwalk is much nicer than Dragway 42.

If you're looking for a track and amusement park in the Cleveland area, I'd pick Norwalk and Cedar Point.
Easy access to both from the Ohio Turnpike and plenty of places to stay.

Not that I know of......
Doing something outdoors around here, this time of year may not be such a good idea. The temperature isn't supposed to be above 50 this weekend and it's only going to get colder.

Ok here is the scoup.
http://www.fastimesindoorkarting.com/index.html
that is the website.
Yes you have to be 18 and they WILL not bend on the idea. Wes i have some ideas for you email me later and ill figure something out.

Now the good news. Since we are a "car" group they do give discounts to groups. Depending on the amount of people that go depends on the price.
I have gotten 85 bucks for 2 hours of racing and the prices go down with the more people we have commited to it.
For those that are over 21 they DO SELL BEER.
lets get some input on this idea and see who is intersted.

Wal-mart has car meets any time you want.It's on Brookpark rd in Brooklyn Ohio(brooklyn is a suburb of cleveland).Summit is a good place so is Norwalk but there are always busy,it's tough to set up meets in those places.The metro parks have meets about once a month but not for caddy's.I can find out what can be done if people are serious about meeting in Cleveland.

Please put me down as "interested" in the indoor karting meet-up. Perhaps I can get the red-haired one to participate also.

2 Hours? That's a long time for Karting. That's almost an enduro. I'd vote for one hour & more socializing.

Oh if there is a need for local info check out: http://www.metromix.com
