    I went the Orlando meet and met Stoneage and Night Wolf and Boombotz among others.It was pretty cool.

    I think if im free that weekend and have enough loot to spare for all of that gas,i may make the trip up there.Im seriously considering it.I'll let you know 100% by the end of April.

    Now everyone can see the SAGE GREEN ULTRA RARE BROUGHAM in person.

    Exclamation Re: FIRST EVER NATIONAL MEET Des Moines, Iowa May 18th-20th 1/4 mile golf drinking fo

    Well, it's raining—again! So I won't be taking the clay bar to Cruella today, but I may do the Dove treatment to the interior. Took my steam vac to the carpets last week, so I'm detailing her gradually for the trip.

    I was bored, so I decided to see who all is coming to the meet. Right now, I count only 9 confirmed CF members, plus another five friends that Nick mentioned. But there are 21 CF members who said they were interested in coming; they just haven't confirmed.

    I tried a couple of different ways to import my table into the post, but it wouldn't cooperate, and I can't attach the original spreadsheet, so I printed it as a .pdf and converted it to a .jpeg file.

    Nick, John, maybe you should PM some of the guys who said they were interested but who have not confirmed. Maybe PM some of the other members in the Midwest (I'm can think of several from Ohio—Robert CTS, Illumina, Pimpin88, Florian) and bump up the attendance.

    Re: FIRST EVER NATIONAL MEET Des Moines, Iowa May 18th-20th 1/4 mile golf drinking fo

    Since the track time was unfortunately cancelled, I have a suggestion. Why don't we set up a little autocross course at the former Target parking lot where we're meeting up? We could do this on Sunday morning after breakfast and before golf. Might be fun to see what some of those big Fleetwoods can do, especially if Elias brings his with the Impala SS suspension mods. Nick, since you work for the state, maybe you could get some orange cones from the transportation department?

    I've gone to events like this when the C5 Corvette was launched and also at a GM truck event. Had a blast whipping an Escalade around the cones (my friend who drove a Mazda pickup had his hands full; he couldn't believe how I was whipping that thing around, but I'm used to big cars).

    Just an idea to think about.

    Re: FIRST EVER NATIONAL MEET Des Moines, Iowa May 18th-20th 1/4 mile golf drinking fo

    My Dad just called, and he has some possible substitute driver's for his route, so it looks like he may be coming. I'll know for sure in the next week or so.

    John, did you ever hear from the local Cadillac/LaSalle Club about joining us for the show on Saturday; I'd love to see some vintage Cadillacs there.

    And if anybody's interested, here's my itinerary for the trip to and from Des Moines. I'm going to try driving back in three days to conserve my vacation days, and if my Dad helps with some of the driving, that will make it easier. On the way back, I'm stopping at the Cussler Museum outside Denver. Looks like there are some really cool cars there.

    Re: FIRST EVER NATIONAL MEET Des Moines, Iowa May 18th-20th 1/4 mile golf drinking fo

    There's a small hiccup on the hotel. What was a Super 8 will be an EconoLodge as of next week. Phone number is still (515) 278-8858. Address is 4755 Merle Hay Rd. Do not confuse it with the Super 8 across the street at Merle Hay Rd. and Sutton (formerly a Comfort Inn).

    Also, when I called to make a reservation, they couldn't find the reservation code CGCICS or any record of the Cadillac Owner's club. So I'm going to call again in the morning and speak to Ashley. She works 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is the person who handles groups.

    OK, problem solved with the hotel. Ashley was off today, but I spoke to Cathy (I think that's her name), and she found our group with the reservation code CGCICS. She said it would be best to call before 3 p.m. to make your reservations; either she or Ashley will be there, and they at least know what's going on.

    Cool, I'll call in this next week now, and get mine set up. Thanks for making that table with our names on it, do you think we could PM everyone on that list and see if they'll confirm?
