Fry's is a great location... I'll have to leave my checkbook at home though - that place is addictive.

It doesn't sound like there will be many of us so maybe we'll just plan to eat at a restaurant. If we get a bunch of guys in the future maybe we can do a BBQ out at Magnuson park or somewhere that has BBQ's.

Well, it's Greater Seattle, so it always changes... plus, you can be in one town and it's pouring down raining, another it's snowing, another it's sunny all the while they tell us it's suppose to be overcast. So... lol

Chiefy,

3 guys over on the V page said they could make it, but at a later date. Since it's supposed to rain Saturday anyway (which means I can't really drive the 500+hp V) maybe we should shoot for a date in early May. My wife kinda wants to do something else anyway.

Well, there's a couple of people who can make it and a few who might... the problem w/ that is I can't get ahold of them all and I don't want them to show up and then not have others there...

Oh, for the 5/13 meet at Redmond Town Center, it'll be in the central parking lot (in back by Ruby's, Claim Jumper, etc are)

I see most of you guys drive a CTS, would an old DeVille (1991) with a yellow lab in the back seat be welcome? I haven't been to Seattle in a while, and it might be fun to take a little road trip for the May 27 meet (I'm out of town May 13).

Anybody else in Oregon interested in making it a caravan?

Great, thanks! I will plan to come up for the May 27 meet. Anybody interested in doing a caravan up I-5 can send me a PM or e-mail, gary@gdwriter.com.

I'm thinking I might check out the LeMay Car Museum (http://www.lemaymuseum.org) in Tacoma while I'm in the area. The Museum of Flight (http://www.museumofflight.org) is another possibility; I haven't been there since they got the Concorde. Anybody else interested?

I'll get back to you on ideas for places to check out tomorrow when I can actually think (I'm tired)...

But I'm going to be talking to Brotherton Cadillac to see if they'll promote our meets starting with the 5/13 meet in Redmond, giving them info on it to pass around to Cadillac owners coming into there... if anyone else would be willing to take the information to other Cadillac dealerships, or know alot of other Caddy owners, etc... please pay them a visit with information, time, and a link to this thread so they can signup and give input, etc... actually, hold off on the link... I'll set up a basic webpage tomorrow for info and a little guest book for people to give ideas, input, RSVP, etc in... anyway, please spread the word to others owners, dealerships, etc!

Man guys, wish I can make it, but I will have to check my work schedule. Too bad we cant make the meet at Vancouver, WA, because that I will definantly make it. Vancouver is between Seattle and the Oregonians, so that would make an even drive for both sides.

If we ever plan to meet in Vancouver, we can all to go a local Hooters to eat and hang out. :thumbsup:

But let me check my schedule and i'll get back to ya.

CTS4Chiefy
05-02-06, 06:31 PM
Well, as long as we have interest from a number of people down there, I don't see a reason why we want. :-D

CTS4Chiefy
05-05-06, 12:37 AM
Agreed! Hey, it was you who goes to Bellevue Caddy, right? If you wouldn't mind, would you take a bunch of flyers to them and see if they, too, will promote this? On the flyer, include this Redmond Town Center meet info as well as the link listed above?

CTS4Chiefy
05-06-06, 02:38 AM
Another place - Car Nuts in Overlake - has agreed to post up a flyer. They get a number of 'Slades in there for customization.

So, how was the meet last Saturday? I've been out of town for the past week and just got home tonight.

Is there still going to be the meet at Alki Beach on the 27th? I have my motel reservations, so Cruella (my DeVille) and Hoover (my dog) will be heading up to Seattle that morning. I can Mapquest directions to Alki Beach, but it would help to have some specifics on the meeting location.

The location is yet unknown for sure due to hearing that a recent Acura meet was broken up there after police were called on them.

Also, can someone else take over setting up this meet? I was hired and will be working, unable to attend this weekend.

gdwriter
05-23-06, 04:35 PM
Well, the forecast (http://beta.weather.com/weather/weekend/USWA0395?from=36hr_topnav_undeclared) for Saturday is a 30% chance of showers. Do we want to reschedule so CTS4Chiefy (and maybe others) can attend? I'm taking my Impala to a show near Portland June 10, but that's the only schedule conflict I have right now.

I need to know if this weekend is a go or not by Friday so I can cancel my motel reservation without penalty.

I still don't get why the cops busted up an Acura meet, but if there's only a few of us and we don't do donuts in the parking lot, we shouldn't have a problem.

OK, I've heard it's a no-go from Seattle CTS-V, DLE and V-Smooth. And CTS4Chiefy has already said he can't make it. So I'd say May 27 is off. Why don't we re-schedule for June 17 or 24?

Let's start a list of who can come for each of those Saturday's. If you can do both, go ahead and put your name on both lists. Whichever Saturday has the most names will be the one we go with. Sound fair?

BTW, if anybody knows of some cool car event in Seattle either day, please mention it. Also, I do some graphic design work and could help put together a flyer for distribution at Brotherton and Bellevue Cadillac.

Assuming both are Saturdays, I'm not sure I can. I now work Saturdays and I know it's not a good idea to ask for a day off not even a month into being hired that hasn't been scheduled before hand. If anything, I may be able to on the 24th (doubtful), but the 17 I'd have to mark off as a no. You guys should set up a meet for one of those two days and in early July I should be able to get at least 1 Saturday requested off. I'm working at a car dealership, though, so we'll have to see.

gdwriter
06-19-06, 02:30 PM
Well, June is more than half over, so it doesn't look like we'll be getting together this month. How does July look for anybody? I have a car show July 1, but the rest of my calendar is open at the moment.

Sorry, but thats too far for me. lol. If you guys happen to have a meet around Portland/Vancouver, than i'm down. If the meet had about 20+ cars/suvs show up, then i might go. But for a few cars, its not worth the drive for me. :P
