    Question Big Midwest Meet! Des Moines, Iowa -- May 18-19 2007 -- Porky's Diner -- Track Time!

    Any interest in a midwest meet this coming spring? Central Iowa might be a good spot for several surrounding states--not too far away for Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, Missouri, Indiana, or Wisconsin.

    I'll keep that in mind if the plans come together.

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    This would be great. One of the forum members remarked that he had a rapport with an area Cadillac dealer who may sponsor/cosponsor a meet.

    On a related note, I am surprised Cadillac (corporate) doesn't host annual, nationwide meets for entusiasts, collectors and the like. (Pardon my cynicism and forgive my saying so, yet I guess Cadillac is too busy dreaming up the next HT-4100 or revealing a new Cimarron, which would likely be built on the Chevrolet Aveo platform.)

    So which month? April? May? March would still have snow so it would most likely be too early..

    April still has the possibility of snow or shitty weather, May would be my preference.

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    I agree, May sounds like the best month for something like this. No snow, warmer days, green grass, and flowering trees, etc. This will provide us with a great background for pictures!!

    Provided we can get more people in on this, should we get "a block of rooms" at a hotel or just go it alone? Have any of you ever put something like this together? I may want to check with Sal or Urbanski to see how to put one of these things together.

    We might get more cars and people if we can hook up with the Cadillac/LaSalle club. I think they have a chapter here in the Des Moines area, and the owner of Betts Cadillac has alot of older Cadillacs that are literally museum quality. Betts, btw, is the dealership I hope to connect with to host the show itself. They are a big dealership with lots of open areas and lots of traffic.

    Anyway, if a couple of you want to assist me with getting this thing together, that would be great.

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    I'll count you in! Should we set up a minimum number of participants to determine if we have enough interest to pull this thing off? Maybe I'll check with Sal or Urbanski... Let's do this well, and have fun at the same time.

    Gotta clean out my pm boxes, and after I do, I'll pm you. We should exchange e-mails so that we can begin setting up a committee to work out the details. Wonder if 90Brougham350 would help with this?

    Alright, I'd be glad to help, setting up the last Minnesota meet wasn't too hard at all. I just discovered that I'm graduating (well I guess I forgot) in May, so the first three weekends of May wouldn't work for me, maybe last weekend in May or the beginning of June?

    Works for me. I'll be able to come down for a Sat night- sunday sort of deal. I could do Monday too, but you guys all probably work on Monday.

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    If you're graduating, you'll have finals and all that kinda stuff. That's more important than a car show committee. I don't want to put too much on ya, its' ok. I might just keep asking you questions though-like what should be the cutoff for numbers before cancelling the show, for instance? What should be the minimum number of participants to make a go of it?
