Poll

Where would you like the 4th Annual Midwest Meet to be located?

Cordova Dragway for AMc Weekend
Mav's AMC Eagle Nest Sanctuary
Let's meet at the Sanctuary, hang out a day and then round up the posse and invade Cordova together!
Neither, both places sound boring... Hawaii anyone?
I don't care as long as I get free stuff!

No I think you're right Doug... I have the website saved here somewhere, I'm sure it's already posted. When I get a chance, I'll take a look and get an official date set for next year.

Ok, I believe that would make it Sat. Sept. 10th. The Cordova website does not have anything listed just yet.

So, I'm guessing the 8th through the 11th? The 8th being on Thursday, and the 11th that Sunday.

This year I'm going to try to have a few more events planned out each day to keep us busy... assuming the shop is %100 done, we'll have alot more to do.

My vote goes for The Sanctuary & then on to the show. Maybe I'll be able to pay for my Eagle & have it back by then. Year away. I hope so.

If it's not... maybe we can talk a couple guys into starting the Meet the weekend before and you come up and we'll just go to town on it the week of and have her finished up... kinda like a pre-meet restore session. I could have everything ripped off and painted by the then and then just have some guys help me git'er put back together in a few days... hmmmm

I would prefer to nat have an over abundance of planned events.  Usually there is enough work
on Eagles so everyone can get back home safely.
I really enjoy meeting new members and socializing and talking Eagles.
I'm right 98% of the time, and I don't care about the other 3%.

Agreed and if it is anything like the meet I hosted all plans will go out the window anyway.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

LOL! Nah, I know what you guys mean... I've got something different I'm working on. It's just in the "thought process" stage... so I wouldn't get too worked up about it yet. Long time before the meet and alot can happen.

And Brandon... nothing ever goes as planned, you're right. More fun to just go with it anyways! Your event was better than mine... at least I was much more relaxed this year, LOL! But now I know what to expect after three meets... and with Jesse helping out with the Cordova thing - I think this one is going to be much more easily planned and executed.

It'll be fine guys! No worries!

Hey guys,

Just to let you know, the Cordova meet has classicly been the second weekend of September. 

Regardless, the actual event will not have an official announcement until after first week of December.  THat way the other "Big events" will be scheduled and little ol' us with our AMC's can get SQEEEEEZed in there!  Sometimes it works out to our benefit... a couple of times the HOt Rod Drag Tour went through the same week as us.. lot's of big noise in the parking lots! 

I would say you can plan on the 2nd or 3rd weekends in Sept.  Looking forward to seeing you guys there! 

You can watch for it on another fabulous forum, http://theamcforum.com/.  Can't have too many sources of good AMC info!

See you in Co Springs next weekend... right?  (c'mon, just a few more!)

Awesome man, I was worried you were kinda bummed about the small numbers... can't let it get to ya. We do get more each year... not many of the same faces at each event... if we could get everyone together from the last three events - we'd have a huge event. I think we're doing pretty good though, and they will get better as we all move forward. I think this Cordova thing could really help with that too. I had a great time... almost had myself talked out of going with all my issues, but glad I decided to just go.

Considering that our members are for the most part widely scattered and
how far many have to travel, I think we're doing very well.
We have made two meets, and thoroughly enjoyed both.
I hope we can attend more of them.
I'm right 98% of the time, and I don't care about the other 3%.
