I'm surprised you guys aren't talking it up here on this site. You are hosting the national meet. How many local members do you have that are planning to be there. I know there's a bunch of us hoosier chapter guys that will be driving out there.
Hello-<br>We had a planning meeting last night and we have about 75 cars registered and there are about 15 locals yet to register. We are looking into about 150 cars. We have a great venue and the banquet is looking good with some very interesting speakers and multimedia presentations. We have a yahoo website that has most of our activity on it. But, one topic was to bring up conversation on this website as well. Keep spreading the word and it is shaping up to be a great meet. How many cars are coming in from your chapter?
We'll have about 5-7 guys caravaning out to KC from Indy. We're leaving Fri a.m. and should arrive at the dealership around 4-5 pm.<p>I'll be driving a '98 saffron V70R. I haven't registered yet but I will soon.
