    2nd Annual Mdwest Meet!!!

    Well it seems nobody else wanted to step up to the plate and get something going so this is going to be another midwest meet planned by your favorite meet planner- ME!!

    Ok, heres the deal-

    Friday April 25th to Saturday April 26th (or 27th depending on interest)

    The meet is going to be mainly in Davenport Iowa. Davenport is 2 hours from Des Moines, two hours from Chicago and three hours from St. Louis.

    Friday night: Drag racing at Cordova Raceway in Cordova Illinois. This is about 10 minutes from Davenport. Going to the track obviously does not require racing. Bring your car out to show it off and hang out!

    Racing goes from 6:30pm until 1am
    After racing go back to the hotel in Davenport and have some drinks

    Saturday:
    Meet at 12pm for a group drive around the area
    Depart for group drive at 12:30 PM
    Arrive at restaraunt for lunch/meet at 1:15PM
    Leave for home around 4 or 5pm on saturday.

    If there is enough interest:
    Go out to dinner and hit some clubs/bars in Davenport/Quad Cities on Saturday night.
    Party all night
    Go for a group breakfast on Sunday morning
    Play golf (for those interested) on Sunday at 1:30pm
    Head for home after golfing or after breakfast

    This is just the prelimanary plan. I did the midwest meet last year and it all worked out perfectly- I WONT DISAPPOINT!

    I will get us a group rate on a hotel and plan the dining/drinking/meet spots as interest increases and I do some research of whats good in the area.

    Thats it- SPREAD THE WORD AND POST IN HERE ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK!

    Re: 2nd Annual Mdwest Meet!!!

    Wow, nice job Nick!

    Is Davenport south of Des Moines? I'm thinking 4-5 hours from St. Paul..... I'd still show though!
    It's a good date too....I'll be 21 by then (4/15!) and I can go drinking LEGITIMATELY this time, instead of almost getting all of us kicked out of certain bars (cough....cough), plus it's two months after the Chicago meet, which leaves me plenty of time to save up.
    I'm still kinda sour about not getting to go to the track last year, I'd love to run my car, even though it's best time would probably be a 16.5 LOL!


    I'll keep tuned to this thread!

    Awesome Chad! Looks like its 5 hours from St Paul. Davenport is on the Mississippi right between Des Moines and Chicago.

    The track is a go for sure this time. They have public racing that night!

    well two hours from chicago sure beats the 5 hour drive I had last year

    lets start looking at hotels and giving them calls to see if they will do a group rate. start to post a link to this thread in another forums otherwise many that might come might miss the opportunity.

    Where did you guys have brunch? GC is my home town. Im guessing that was some upscale brunching! I am looking to take more time off in April. Sounds like I found a good weekend to make a little longer!
    My female friend who's husband wrecked her 05 V (last month) is from the Quad cities. The coincidences just keep coming.
