Alright everyone, this has been brought up sparingly on some of the Facebook pages. ( I am going to post about this on there as well) but, is anyone in for planning a Midwest Meet up? I haven’t been able to make any of these and I’d like to try to make it to one this year.

All depends on where and when. I'm free July mid-July on until... forever. My wife would probably be joining me. She usually takes the first week of Aug. off. Would make for a good road trip.

Mr. Smith, I believe you just stepped up to organize this. :wink:

I am thinking in August sometime, it depends on who I can get to help me out and either get a place where everyone can meet or who has some land we can all hangout at and grill out or whatever.

someone figure it out and tell me where and when lol

Will do!

Lol, I am fine with that I am just trying to find someone or more than one person who’s got a place we can all meet at. I’ve talked to a couple different people but nothing in stone as of yet.

I'd like to. Whether I could make it this year or not remains to be seen. Got a kid on the way in August so that would play heavily into it.

I'm in (as long as it's not the last week in August) and I do have a house, but no room for accommodations. Don't mind a drive either, so as long as it's not 10 hours away.

Understandable. I will see what I can come up with, I’m guessing it’ll be like a Friday night-Sunday thing and everyone can leave Sunday morning/afternoon.

Once I can get somewhere to have it I’d like to check with hotels nearby and see if we can get a code for cheaper rates if there will be a decent amount of people who want a room

Booking.com is usually pretty good for checking out hotels, but sometimes you can get a better rate going directly through the hotel itself.

What I’m hoping is if we can get someone to open up their land/ house to us I will find a hotel nearby that can give us a group rate for maybe like 10-15 rooms if people want them.

Not really anymore. I tried putting it together like I did back when I hosted one in Indy, but it never pans out in the sticks

I wish I had a house on enough land to have everyone there for a grill out or something but we would have to figure out what to do for about 2 full days.

Where are you located?!



That would work as well, where are you located?

Grimor is in Elkhart, Indiana and dj is in Vegas. Elkhart is doable, Vegas, not so much. :biggrin:

That would be a bit of a drive for me to Vegas.

Grimor's place is somewhat central for us in Ohio and the guys in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana etc. I'll definitely be coming to this one having not been able to make the last couple.

Well thank you for offering the space!

Ya, it said it was about 4 hours for me, so I’d probably get there Friday night.

That’s what I would do, get a hotel and just drive over Saturday morning/early afternoon. If Grimor wants to host it I’d say let’s do it.

Google would give you far more info on Elkhart than my one visit, plus what do you consider small town? I live in a small town, but I still think a town 10 times the size of that is a small town

I’ll check lol, I just didn’t want to book a hotel that was too far from Grimor if possible.

I must be a traveling soul cause 11 hours is nothing to me. I used to run up to Purdue for weekend parties when I lived in FL. 24 hours drive time for 2 day party was nothing and still dont mind the wheel time.

I'm used to driving long hours. And that's 11 hours according to Google maps. 9 hours in reality :biggrin:
