Okay here it goes. I see that a few people live in the area. I have recently relocated to the Twin City Metro area. Being so I am just wondering if anybody who lives nearby, or who would like to make the drive, would like to have a mini meet in the near future. If so, list dates, times, and possible locations. Hopefully if enough people are up for this idea, we can get this party started and have ourselves a grand ole time. I'm looking forward to any suggestions and hopefully getting to meet all of you soon.
Thanks for chiming in guys. I have emailed quite a few people and so far everyone who responded is all for a meet. I'm off every weekend so any weekend is good for me.
StealthV will be busy moving family and business until mid September so I suggest any weekend in October. He has even offered the following:

Some dates that come to mind are Oct1st, 2nd, 8th, 9th, and so on. So everyone pick a good date for you and see which is the most popular as that will be the date of the meet. As for activities, I'm up for some grilling, cruising, card playing, any sport( just in case a few of you want to get on the court). I will be looking for a location that can accomodate a nice size crowd and some off street parking. If anybody has a place in mind, post it, and I'll go and check it out.
Thanks everyone. Let's keep each other posted and I'll see you all soon.
october would probably be good. i dont know of any locations on the south side but i'll keep an eye out. keep us updated on the attendance count. so far the activities sound good too. hell, this meet is getting more hits than i thought it would. woohoo
Alright how about Como Park in St. Paul? You can view some of the things the park has to offer here: http://www.ci.stpaul.mn.us/depts/par...tml#picnicinfo. As for the date let's go with with October 15th (a saturday)at 2pm sign-in starts. I have posted this topic on Caddy Info as well. I will scout Como Park this upcoming week to make sure there will be enough parking and to apply for any permits that may be needed. Let know how many people that will be attending in your party and if this date and time is good for you. Either reply here or contact me at Addison_II(at)hotmail.com. As for cruising routes I don't know any yet but I suspect we would want one that would give us maximum exposure. So I will be waiting for responses from everyone and hope to see you all soon.
I've put together a couple of meets, http://www.amesgto.com, but I'm not sure if we have time to get sponsors, make tshirts, and put a site together. Next year for sure. I'll see if I can put together a bare bones site just for info and pics this year.
Ames, that site is great. Nice job on it BTW.I was thinking about getting some t-shirts made but I think that may just be personal preference. Something like hats with the Caddy Logo with CadillacForums.com on it with our user names on the side or back so that everyone would recognize everyone. The shirts would probably follow the same design. I was also thinking about doing the 2 day setup too but I'm not sure how everyone would feel about this.
All right everyone, the date is set at October 15th, 2005. The beginning time will be at 1:00 pm. I need everyone who is definitely going to attend, to post a reply containing how many guests you are bringing with you. You can post the info on this thread or send me an email to addison_ii(at)hotmail.com. Also, I will be renting either the Como Shelter or the Como Midway Pavillion and that is why I need to get a head count. You can view both venues here: http://www.ci.stpaul.mn.us/depts/par...omo-rates.html
As the date gets closer more info regarding weather, new locations(if weather doesn't permit us to be outside), and cruising route will be posted(this can be amended as necessary if we want to "open up" the Caddys ).Activities will/can be cookout, b-ball, football, tennis, kite flying(whatever). I am on CadillacOwners.com everyday so feel free to post any suggestions you may have, as I will post a reply if not immediately, then within 24 hours. So far I have been getting a lot of emails about members volunteering as needed and members offering their expertise. I would like to tell of you Thank You!! Your help is appreciated and very much needed. With all of us working together this meet will be a success. Currently we have members coming from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, as well as our "neighbor to the north" Canada. I will be sending everyone either an email or PM with the final details. So clear your inboxes/PM boxes. Remember all suggestions are welcome. If you would like to talk me directly, send me a PM or email and I will provide my home number to you.
Hoping to see you all at the meet.
