Hey Guys, I know a lot of you probably don't know me. I'm doing my best to become more active with some of the semi local members. I've decided to try my hand at getting a Midwest supra meet together. The idea of this meet is to get some of the surrounding states in the upper Midwest together (IA, MN, WI, IL, MI) anyone's welcome to attend of course. I'm planning on a Friday night, Saturday, and leave Sunday morning. Without further delay here are the details I've gathered so far:

Where: Cedar Falls, Iowa
When: TBD (Up for suggestions).

Details:

Friday Night:
Meet and Greet with brews :drink1:
Place: Buffalo Wild Wings
Time: TBD later in the day

After meet and greet head back to the hotel for more socializing. There's one we stayed at that I really liked in the past just need to find the name of it again. They have pool, arcade, pool tables, and I believe breakfast.

Saturday:
Head out to Cedar falls raceway for a fun filled day of racing!
I can bring out a grill and we can grill out at the track.

Saturday Night:
Not set in stone yet and definitely up for ideas
Maybe a night cruise? If someone else can think of something fun in cedar falls I'm all ears. I'd suggest the bar but I already know there will be some people under 21 going from Des Moines.

Sunday:
Time to go home

All these ideas are subject to change. I'm up for all ideas. Please RSVP me and let me know and I'll add you to the list :).

Also if someone else would like to take charge as a co organizer that would be great. Preferably someone that's out of state so we get a good variety of help and ideas.

The List:
Newgen (Matt)
Toyotanos (Steve)
CRsupraIII (Joe)
Emericaskater285 (Grant)
Emiliorescigno (Emilio) hope I spelled that right!
Utterly1337 (Tony)(My brother)
Lee_MA61 (Leon)
Mr Bojangles (Peter)
Getzke (Dan)
Mark1987supra (Mark)
82MKII (Jake)

Edit- toyotanos

Spread the word to local guys around you and send 'em here!

I agree! I'm up for all dates. My only area of conflict is July 21st & July 22nd. I'm in my best friends wedding. I'm thinking August. Their's a few of us around here that are still buttoning up our projects so that will give everyone plenty of time.

I'm in, I would be be cautious with dates toward the end of August. Normally I think CHI2K has been happening around that time frame.

I'm going to start on it middle of next week. I'm studying for my Series 6 test right now for work. If I don't pass I don't have a job. It's pretty much consuming my life right now.

Hey sorry Steve life has been crazy right now lol. I'm up for all suggestions my ideal month is august. My car hits the dyno on May 5th, and my brothers car should be done around that time.

Here's the website for the track if people want to look at dates.

I am of the mindset "Sooner in the summer the better" usually. I feel like a lot of meets get pushed way back into the end of summer and a lot of really nice May/June days are missed.

^ I can dig that. Let me do some looking and thinking tomorrow at work. June will probably work the best for me. I'm trying hard to get my car on the road still. I just received my 2nd cal today for my AEM v2. Still trying to get the idle portion worked out. My tuner is suppose to be coming from cedar rapids, ia near the end of the month. I'd really like to be track ready by the time this meet comes around so I can put down a good time.

Oh you know I'm in hopefully I'll have the paint job done. Then again it's funny watching peoples faces when they get beaten.
