St Louis Mini meet Th 2/23/12
« on: February 18, 2012, 12:26:04 PM »
Hey guys, sorry if this posted twice... thought I did it last night but couldn't find it today. 

Whenever I go through St Louis (at least once a month) I get together with some of the IFSJA guys and occasionally the local AMC Club members.  This next Thursday a bunch of us are just informally gathering at Growlers pub in So County around 6:30. 

Would be great to have some Eagle representation there as well! 

Hope you can make it!  You'll have to google Growlers as I have never been there but that is where the AMO club meets every month. 

Have a great weekend,

Jesse

I'll see if I can make it. Kind of late notice, but I'll try. Sounds fun!

I would love to be there but can't promise a thing -- and I doubt that my sx/4 would be road-worthy by then.

Growlers is pretty close to the intersection of 44 & 270 (on Lindbergh) ... sure wish I could say I'd be there for sure!

JSK, where do you live off 44? If I make it up I could pick you up on my way in...I'd be coming from Rolla. You can pm me if you want.

No AMC required onsite to show... I will be in my Company vehicle, a '11 Chv Eqnx.  Company's buying gas so it's hard to put the miles on the J10!

Look forward to seeing you guy there!

I'm north of 44 a few miles - essentially at 270 and Dougherty Ferry. I'm sure I'd be welcome in my 91 corolla - I was merely whining about not getting to work on my sx/4. sigh. Thanks for the offer to pick me up - - it's more a function of my wife's work schedule and my work schedule (difficult to predict). But I'll be keeping the mini-meet in mind, that's for sure!!!

Thanks again -

I hope some Eagle guys show up. I'm gonna try my best to make it. I'll have to probably check out of work a bit early to make it by 6:30.

Hope you guys can show!  May be getting a "room" they use during the local AMO meets. 

See you soon,

Jesse

JSK,

Get that SX/4 running. I'd love to see it. The last time I saw an SX/4 in real life was when I was in Jr. High and it got me hooked on the Eagle.

One more reminder about the mini-meet. I'll be there. Hoping some others can make it. I keep trying to call this guy from the STL area that bought my last Eagle, but I think he gave me a fake number or something and when he called it always showed up as PRIVATE or ANONYMOUS.

It was just me and Jesse from here. Three Wagoneers. One Gremlin. One Javelin.

Was nice to meet everyone though. I'm already back in Rolla.

thanks for coming out!  Your Eagle Wagon represented our breed well!  It was like a mini-AMC meet... I had a great time.

Members from ifsja.org, amceaglenest.com, theamcforum.com and Gateway AMO club...  For a Th night without much notice, I think it went pretty well!

We will have to do this again sometime! 

Of course for those of you near the St Louis area, the AMO had 40 AMC freaks at last months meet... happens every 2nd Sunday at Growlers and you don't even need an AMC/Jeep to join. 

When you are into AMC's, you can never have too many in your support group!  http://gatewayamc2009.com/

Have a great weekend and hope to see you at the next gathering!

Yeah there was a good 10-15 of us. Not everyone drive their AMC vehicles. The Wagoneers all looked great...dwarfed my little Eagle!

I know Matt (the teenager there with his Dad's Blue Wagoneer) took some pics... will have to see if anything showed up!   I am hoping to show at the Gateway AMO meet in March... 2nd Sunday.

Maybe it will be a bit lighter out by then! Plus it will be a Sunday so more cars will show up!
