SHORT NOTICE! FIRST MEET!

When: Friday Night- May 5th 2006

Location: Gurnee, IL

Time: 6:00 - 8:00

Where: We'll meet in the Chase Bank parking lot ( 6400 Grand Ave - Gurnee, IL 60031 ) directly across the mall road from the Rock and Roll McDonalds. The Rock and Roll McDonalds only allows parking on Friday nights for pre-70's muscle cars and rods.

What to bring: A lawn chair!

Directions: Take 94 NORTH, exit 132 WEST, take 132W for one mile, bank is on the right (north) side of the street, directly across the street from Menards. Located in the NE quadrant of 132 and Hunt Club Road.

This is by no means the chosen location for future gatherings, but once we get some folks together maybe we can come up with a better spot for future meets that makes everyone happy. But, if we like the place, I'll talk to the bank manager and get approval. I have all my biz accts there, so maybe I've earned some pull.

Sorry about the short notice, but get those Vettes ready! See you there and bring a lawn chair!:thumbsup: :D

Get one of the portable chairs (Walmart, Sams, Bass Pro) that folds up into a tube for storage.:thumbsup:

THAT WAS FUN!

Even though I gave you guys less than 24 hours notice, and it was 45 degrees and dreary, we still had 6 Vettes turn out!

Sure, it wasn't wise to drink beer in the parking lot of a bank. :laughing: But thank god the customer tipped us off that the police had been called and were on the way. Gave us enough time to split!:partyon:

I'll talk to some places/businesses and get some options for a permanent gathering place.

Check this thread for updates, and for next weeks meet spot!:partyon:

Patrick,

Sounds like you had some fun at least!

I just caught this post this morning.
Was in NYC for a few days.

If there is a cruise night at Culver's in Libertyville this year on Friday nights, that may be a more friendly place to meet.
Lot's more room than Gurnee McDonald's and better food too!
Heck, they even encourage bunouts when you leave!

I sent you a heads up on the meet via e-mail to your 5th media account and it bounced back. Shoot an e-mail to [email protected] and let me know your new email. ;)

And... where is there a Culvers in Libertyville?

Hey...an idea for you...(since I didn't find this notice until THIS morning almost 24 hours later) How about we (those in the area that may be able to make it) send you our email addys and you email us this stuff as you post it? I sat at home last night surfed the site, read your pm's and fell asleep on the floor at 9:30.
I would have loved to use my car, dirty or not, and headed up to meet.

No kidding? Damn, I haven't been down that stretch of 176 in a long time. Didn't know they built one there.

Is it a hoppin place? I got a Culvers here in Gurnee and it's just a bunch of retired people or moms taking their kids there for chicken fingers. :laughing:

Maybe I'll take a drive by there tonight.:thumbsup:
