North Texas meet in April!

Alright Guys and Girls....I know alot of us can't drive long distances to some of these Cam gatherings but I was wanting to know a show of "Pistons" who would like to meet in April at a undisclosed location and date to follow. Basically everyone who would like to come what I need from you is a date and exactly where you will be coming from...for example I live in Justin Texas or if you will North Ft.Worth....the dates I have open on my calendar for that month are 4/11/09 and 4/18/09 which both or Saturdays.....the time can be discussed later. Just wanting to see who is really interested and if enough people are we can decide on it then....this is just a good way of getting to know one another as well and share stories and what not....now let the debate begin.....

We live in Dallas near Love Field. My mom and sister are the Camaro drivers, but all three of us are enthusiasts; strangely enough, I'm the biggest enthusiast.

We might be interested, but we keep the miles off them as best as we can, so we don't go to meets in Ft. Worth, Lewisville, Garland, etc. We pretty much stay in Dallas or Addison.

How about meeting at Lake Grapevine? There is a huge parking lot with large pavillons, good scenery, and a couple of grills for BBQ. Maybe the 11th or 18th, depending on weather? If not, I'd definitely be up for a meet somewhere in North Dallas or Addison. FYI - Work in Addison and live in Frisco.

The challenege is finding a big enough parking lot where people don't care if we loiter. My other car club goes to Bone Daddy's, but it is getting to be a pain in the ass due to lack of parking.

Anyway, let me know the details, and I'll make every attempt to be there.

Lake Grapevine is good, but I think it'd only be worthwhile if this was a HUGE event.

I go out there for Italian CarFest every year (they didn't have it last year, but will this year), and they always get about 100 Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Fiats. I'm not sure how they get the permit or whatever to assemble there though. They always park in the grass.

There is a spot on the south side that is good, and we don't need a permit. Just some friends chillin at the park with kick ass cars, and grillin up some brats and burgers. We've had a few G35Driver meets there for our local chapter. We've probably had 15 or so hanging out for the afternoon. Music, tossing the football, drinks, and BBQ. It's a pretty good spot.

I think Lake Grapevine would be perfect. It looks like April 18th looks to be the date people seem most interested in so lets make it for the 18th. Would you guys be interested in Lake Grapevine as being the site? Or some other spot...let me see a show of hands.......also what time would everyone like to meet? This sounds like a good day ahead of us, I am excited!!

Lake Grapevine is a bit far away for my attendance to be really often, so maybe we could think of an alternate spot that is more central to Dallas.

I've had a Camaro event at night in Highland Park Village before, and the security guy welcomed us because he normally has a boring night with nothing to look at. This was around Christmas 2007 and I advertised it on ls1tech:



A parking lot at Northpark mall could be fun, but I don't know if they would bother us for loitering or not.

Any place on Belt Line in Addison could be fun. Of course, the area is really popular, and parking could be an issue. TGI Fridays holds Gasoline Alley car shows, so they are used to having cars parked there and people loitering.

Other than those places, sort of near me, I can't think of anything at the moment. Parks are always public places, but parking isn't always wonderful. There's a park with a lake/pond connected to Turtle Creek on Lover's Lane near... hmm... can't think of the cross streets, but it's between Hillcrest and Preston. Lots of parking in a single-file row. Great little pond area, I love it there. If you want to throw a football/frisbee or anything else around, it's a pretty darn big park, and good for that.

Nice pics Brangeta...I like the way the lights just shine off of the paint...

I understand where you are coming from though and not wanting to drive to far. Trust me the farthest I have driven is Austin in my Cam....Got alot of love for it too...LOL!!!.....I am waiting on more feedback from everyone on where they want to hold this event. Once we get 1-2 places we will take a vote on it. We better hurry though cause we have what 3 weeks....that will fly by quick....all I need is the place and then we can decipher from there what we will do....good days ahead!

lol the night of that meetup, it was so cold that my camera wouldn't take pictures well. I drove my sister's Z28 there with my mom in her SS a week or so earlier when it was warmer, and was able to get a lot better pictures. These were my two faves:



HP Village is kind of a neat and safe place to meetup. I can't exactly afford to shop there, but there's a Tom Thumb grocery store there I can afford.

Well it is only about 2 hours away from me here in Wichita Falls, not confirming, but is a possibility. Though mine would seem out of place with all the stone chips in my hood. (I keep meaning to get it repainted, but have a few other things I have to work on financially first)

HAHAHA....Nah man this is just a get together for all Cam lovers no matter how old or what condition your cam might be in. I am not getting alot of feedback on if Grapevine lake or another spot might be the place to hold this event. If I do not here anything back it will be executive decision time. We have the date for the 18th of April and with April 1 coming around tommorrow. We just need something in place no later than this weekend. I will post a new thread soon with all the details....but yea once we get this organized we would love to have you come out if you can make it...It's open to the state...
