CENTRAL IL Meet May 1st 11am

Hey guys,
I was thinking of looking into what it would take to get a Camaro meet here in the Bloomington-Normal area sometime this spring, since NO-ONE will want a meet in the middle of winter! Before I go looking into everything it will take, I want to see if it will be worth organizing. I don't own a Camaro, but them so I am willing to do this.

MEET IS SET:
May 1st 11am @ Ted's Garage in Clinton

Also, there will be door prizes sponsored by State Bank of Lincoln and Baum Chevrolet. There will also be awards for:
-Longest Distance Traveled
-Engine
-Exterior

Also, for those interested, in Decatur IL @ the Decatur Airport, there is a car show from 5-9pm by the FUN TIME CRUISERS. The contact person is listed as Jerry Blackwell ph#217-412-8671, 50s-60s music, $5 reg fee. I am told that at last years show there was a real good show with a lot of cars. As more info comes in about this I will add it. Looking to see if there is a site with more info.

If you would be willing to show up let me know and if we get a decent amount willing to show up, I will take further steps in trying to organize it...


Dave_O
Will update list regularly, and create a new one once things are set for the meet. Provided everything goes as planned... Just an FYI, it may be a little while considering winter hasn't come into full effect yet...

I'm sure I can get a few people from C5G to cruise down for a day. There is that abandoned bus depot behind Hovey that I have wanted to take pics at for years.

If you take Main to Hovey going toward downtown Bloomington and make a right by the Pikes house it's one block over. The houses across from the pikes back there yards up to it.

HMMMM, I need to go check that out now!!! But I'm not sure its there anymore.. Will check on my way to/back from class tomorrow. That's my way to campus!!! But if its behind Pikes, then that could explain why I never notice it...

edit: Re-read it and realized what you said... You said the houses ACROSS from Pikes... OK, but yea, never really pay attention beyond the houses, will tomorrow though!!!

I've been to Bloomington, IL for an STP concert a year ago and it's not that far and a nice drive. I would be up for it.

That place has some GREAT potential for pics! There are big dumpsters on the back side of the building, semi-tractor trailers line the back side of the lot... They will make for some great pics if all that is still there..

Dave if you need any help organizing let me know. I'm going to make it a C5G event, I think a lot of guys will want to cruise down. Let's set up a date. Can you imagine 10 or more 5th gens running down I-55 together?

THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!! And that was actually going to be my next post! Is when does everyone think a good time would be? Before or after the C5F in GA in April? I will be back home (Chicago) sometime tomorrow and for all of next week, but I think I am going to drive around and see where the best spot would be to meet. Right now I have a few ideas...but want to scope out more...
And ANY and ALL help would be appreciated, I have only ever been to cruise nights before, so I am not really sure what all we could have going on, or what people would like to have going on... But I figure organizing this will be good practice for my major, which is Small Business Management!

I did a quick survey of places that have decent sized lots that are not usually full, and there are two places on Veterans that I think would be good, Famous Daves, across from Lemans Chevy, or Ruby Tuesday by Donnie B's Funny Bone... I will take pics of the lots when I get back for people to compare, and will also look for other potential spots...

Have yet to set a date, but sometime in the spring. I am thinking maybe Saturday March 13th? Or maybe the Saturday May 8th? I haven't done anything yet besides throw the idea out there, and look for potential sites for the event. Any ideas, suggestions, etc ARE WELCOME! I am open to any and all comments.

March is a little too early man. There could potentially still be snow falling. I would say shoot for April or May. A lot of guys wont even have summer wheels back on by March. As far as places to have it you should try and work with a business that is down with letting us use some of their lot. When I used to have my Charger we once held a huge meet at the Interstate Center but that involved an entry fee. Honestly I think we could make this thing really huge because it would be a great centerpoint for a Midwest meet. I want to go to Georgia but 14 hours sounds like too far to drive. If there are others thinking the same thing then we could make this the Midwest meet.
