Dates for this meet have changed.


Coldwater, MI

Pre-Meet - May 18th 8:00pm

Applebee's Neighborhood Grill
787 East Chicago Street, Coldwater, MI 49036-2027
(517) 278-1432 ‎

Meet - May 19th 11:00am

We will be in the Parkhurst Park across from Max Larsen Elementary School. There is plenty of parking for us in the school parking lot. The address is: 25 Parkhurst Avenue Coldwater, MI 49036

Parkhurst Park is the site of the very popular Kids’ Kingdom. Built almost entirely of wood, the sprawling complex includes many nooks and crannies to explore and is a year round favorite of children everywhere. The park includes two pavilions, shuffleboard court and basketball court and restroom facilities.

For dinner that night there are plenty of local restaurants that have good reviews. A couple that stood out were Tail Gator's Sports Bar (Great pizza and burgers), Los Tequilas (Mexican), and Stoagies Family Room Cafe. The final decision can be made that afternoon at the park.

For lodging they have all the major hotel chains available so I am sure we can get a good group rate or folks can find good deals through hotwire. All the hotels look to be walking distance from each other so even if we are split up a bit it shouldn't be an issue for parking lot festivities. Please post how many nights you will be staying, as we get closer to the meet I will see about group rates with one of the local hotels.

Post-Meet - Sunday May 20th 9:00am

Breakfast at the hotel or one of the local restaurants. There is a Bob Evans right by all of the hotels.

Bob Evans Restaurant
361 North Willowbrook Road, Coldwater, MI 49036
(517) 279-2101   (517) 279-2204 (Fax) ‎

Following breakfast, 11:00am, Bundy Hill Off Road Park

This will provide an off-road event for the meet as well. I am sure that the lifted / off road members will be more then willing to offer an available seat to anyone that would be interested to attend and is unable to take their truck into the park.

Drive time looks to be a local drive from Kalamazoo and Lansing, MI; 1 hour Fort Wayne, IN; 2 hours from Detroit, MI; 3 hours from downtown Chicago, IL and Indianapolis, IN; 4 hours from Columbus, OH; 5 hours from Louisville, KY; and 6 hours from Amana, IA.

There you have it folks, I hope it meets everyone's expectations. Now get to signing up, please copy the list of names and add yourself to the bottom. Thanks :thumbsup:

Wish I could go, I haven’t been to Coldwater since I was a kid.

This meet may pose a great opportunity to bring a gmtnation sponsor on board with gmtnation.com?

BDS Suspension, BDS Suspension | Lifetime Warranted Suspension Lifts Made In America is located in Coldwater, MI. And, among others things they have the white body shock, BDS 5500 members like and use, would make a nice door prize, or site discount code.

I picked my 5500 series shocks up at their warehouse, and those are made in Mexico.

Zone Off-road is located in Coldwater too.

I may try, but I dont know, thats just a long way away.. Last I checked, Michigan was NOT in the midwest.. Hell, I am not sure I want to count it as part of the States, but it does have Motor City...
