I know I'm a bit late on this thread, and now the winter is upon us...but I'd be down for a meet around Chicago in the spring/summer time!

Bradley and I discussed this in pm's. Sway, what do you "want" to do in a meet, drive fun roads, sit/stand and chat, eat?
Have you checked-out "Galo's 2013 meet..."? It's not that far from Chi-town and the people, food and driving are all terrific. I hope we can get some people from your area to participate this year.

Enjoy!!!

"Think as I think," said a man,"Or you are abominably wicked; You are a toad."
And after I had thought about it, I said,
"I will, then, be a toad."(Thank you, Steven Crane)

Think outside the box!

I'm up for anything during a meet...drive, eat, hang out. I've seen quite a few SLKs around Chitown, so we do need to get more participants! Let's get something going once the weather clears up.

I have some ideas

June weather is gorgeous! And warm enough certainly to ride. I head to Michigan every year for blueberries and the wineries.

I have some great ideas if you all want me to put something together? Send me a PM or post it here and let me know what dates everyone is available!

Saturday or Sunday preference? Everyone check their calendars now!

These are my thoughts: Meetup in downtown Chicago, hit the road for a 3 hour ride to my favorite Michigan winery. Do lunch and a tour, head back and have dinner in the city. If we start planning it now, I'll have plenty of time to secure the locations and make reservations as well as get costs together

I think I used to drink something called "Blueberry Wine" in my early college "hippie" years! Or was that the lyric of a song?????

We can't do the 15th/16th weekend, as we already have concert tickets for that weekend. But, if that is the weekend that works best for the majority, then we will catch the next one.

June 15th? I'll probably be at MidOhio for the GrandAm race that weekend.

Question Bumping the thread

Please let me know what dates work best for everyone:


June 1
June 8
June 15
June 22
June 29

What would you like to do?

1. Drive the lake shore N-S/S-N and end up at a lunch/dinner
[if we ride S to N we can have a meal in the north shore. If we go N to S we can end up in either the heart of downtown or China town]

2. Hit the winery in MI [that's a 3 hour one way]

3. Hit up the Horseshoe casino in IN

4. Meet for breakfast and cruise the lake shore

5. Insert your ideas here!

Just trying to get the ball rolling folks..don't mess with the forum greenhorn

The meet I have organized in Indiana is June 1st;

https://www.slkworld.com/u-s-midwest-...meet-info.html

Why not join in, as I suggested in post #3?
