USA - Any interest in Nationwide SLK meet summer 2020?
Mods: sorry if this is wrong spot, didnt want to restrict this to one US region. I thought maybe SLK general discussion, but it's an "event" hopefully... so...
I am hoping to see if there is any interest in a nationwide SLK meet and cruise next summer (2020). This will require plenty of advance planning and preparation, as well as choosing a meeting spot as central as possible to all participants.
I recall one in the past in Vegas in my early years on the forum. My suggestion would be early summer (Mid may) before the big storm season kicks in, or perhaps an early fall meetup (October?) after the storm season is over.
Depending on who all confirms participation, we can either aim for a location that splits the difference between all distance-wise, or if folks would rather we can aim for scenery over location (Northeast USA for fall foliage, West Coast for views, or North Central like Minnesota for the lakes and cooler temps in summer).
Please reply with your location, your preferred timing (May, Mid summer, or October), and if you have a preference on meeting locale. This will be an ongoing planning process.
1. May, June, or October drive-in meet and cruise (this may vastly limit our participants depending on location). Participants would handle their own hotel arrangements as arrival times may vary.
2. May, June, or October fly-in meet and venture to shows and interesting dining establishments (think foodie tour, eat your way through New York for instance). I can handle making arrangements for reserving a block of hotel rooms given enough advance planning and firm commitments to attend.
