    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    I have like 7 from Iowa. Based on rough estimates I would say we have about 15 total so far that said they would come. Once we get more details ironed out Im going to scout all the boards for people in the area and get them in.

    In addition we will also have the local La Salle Cadillac club which Im sure has ALOT of members. This is gonna be huge guys.....

    I would be pleased if we had 25 to 30.

    Exclamation Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    Hey, guys...

    I did meet personally with my contacts at Betts Cadillac, as promised. That was a stroke of luck in and of itself... No appointment, no clue as to whether or not he'd be there, etc. Just walked in and asked to see him!! Betts is very pleasant and want to help us out, but we do have a couple of hurdles to work through. I am diligently working on this daily at this point. I will be contacting the Cadillac/LaSalle club contact again tomorrow to see if we can partner with them to get over 1 of the hurdles. For them, this meet would not be one of their official meets, but the guy told me that several local guys would probably come down just for the fun of it.

    One item that did surface that may impact a few of you is that the actual meet has to be on the Sunday, (May 20) as Saturday is the best day for car sales. He said he hosted a show once on a Saturday and his sales stuff went nuts because they couldn't sell cars with all the show cars and onlookers there. So we need to go from the Friday/Saturday to Saturday/Sunday. Don't know if this impacts the dragstrip or not, but Nick is handling those arrangements. Let's give this another week to work through the hurdles--I've pm'd Sal C. about one hurdle and am waiting on a response from him.

    IF Betts doesn't work out, don't despair, Nick and I already have an alternate location in Des Moines that would work out fine. So nobody go thinkin' this is off, 'cause we will make this happen!

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    Dragstrip night is Friday in Cedar Falls. Thats about a 90 minute drive from Des Moines so Sunday would be easier for the guys going to the race. Im sure some of you will want to drive home on Sunday so thats also something to consider.

    Like John said, this thing is a go for sure. We will make this happen.

    Sunday is fine for me. I'm glad we're finally getting this squared away.

    Me, too! I'm really pumped about planning this and making it come together... I've put on a couple car shows in my past on a slightly smaller scale, but to get 7 or 8 states involved--that would be stellar!

    Sunday works well. Then we can all hang out Saturday somewhere and do whatever. I might drive home late sunday or just stay another night and leave Monday.

    Did they say they would sponser any of this??

    Flyin-Ryan...

    I didn't want to press that issue until I knew we could overcome the issues he was having related to us being on his property. I did hint at it however. He is an amiable guy, he just wants to make sure he crosses his "t's" and dots all the "i's" so to speak. Once I get answers to his most pressing questions/concerns, I'll gracefully ask him about some level of sponsorship.

    More update:

    My contact with the Cadillac/LaSalle club is at the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction this week! Lucky guy! I left him a message with my cell phone number. He'll probably call me back within a day or two.

    Received some response back from Lord Cadillac and am working with him to resolve one of the issues that Betts Cadillac is asking about.

    Great thought, Nick. I need to look through these pages and find the guy who'll do our website. I think he can begin on some level to create the website.
