    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    Ok, we've got a meet now, everyone!!! We could not overcome the issues with Betts Cadillac surrounding liability insurance holding Betts Cadillac harmless,etc. Therefore, the Midwest Meet will be held at Porky's Drive Inn, 4444 Douglas Avenue in Des Moines, Iowa 50310. The dates will revert back to the Friday and Saturday, May 18 & 19, 2007. This '50's styled restaurant is renowned in this area, has spectacular food, and regularly hosts carshows twice weekly throughout the spring and summer. The lot is big enough for all of us, it's in a good location, and is well known for hosting car shows, and we don't need a special liability policy to cover us. There is a strong possibility that some members of the Cadillac/LaSalle club will be there with us on Saturday--they typically have the older models (pre-1970's) which will bring a greater depth to our show. Imagine having 1930's Cadillacs all the way up to brand new! That would be excellent!

    NickC50310 is working on the arrangements for the drag racing in Cedar Falls Iowa. That event will be on Friday. He's going to keep us posted on hotels and racing information for that night.

    I will be working on the Saturday event (along with Nick)--specifically hotel arrangements, dinner arrangements, and other fun activities for families.

    More info to follow very soon, but get your vacation requests in now to your employer so you can be here for this event. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail jcrmer@iowatelecom.net if you have specific questions or requests regarding the meet. We will be getting a website up and running very soon, too. You can PM me or nickc50310 about this as well.

    This will be an awesome show!

    Gotta go now, but will stay in touch.

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    Just plan to showup at Porkys at 12 or 1 pm. I am also going to work on organizing a motorcade so i will let eveyone know on that one. I havent talked to Porky's yet but its a restaurant so its not like theyre going to turn 50+ customers away.

    Im going to call them and let them know whats going on. Im also going to be sure its ok for us to hang around for a few hours. Plan to have a group lunch around 1:30.

    Porkys serves drinks also so we can have brewskies during the meet! HELL YEAH!

    Flyin'Ryan,

    Nick is going to be calling Porky's for "reservations" for that day. He should let us know sometime early this week.

    Ok, from looking through all the pages, it looks like we have 25 coming so far. Once the website is done, and all supporting members advertise it in their signatures, we'll add to the list.
