    Some of you already know. Lets get this thing started. Was yet to talk with parks and rec today due to work but will be doing so shortly. The meet is projected for November but can be changed to October. Its far enough away for people to plan for drives and the date. Meet minimum is 10. If you are within 4 hours of this meet, consider it. Lets blow it out.

    Quality: They have a pretty good rating, clean for us, safe for our cars. They do have a continental breakfast.

    Location: It is near a highway that will get us to the park in no more than 20 min drive time. (I'm sure that people would enjoy a short cruise anyways.) Refer to link above for hotel address.

    -Arrangements have been made for 20 rooms that will be located close to each other. It is up to each of us to call and make our reservations. This is just a way for us to all be close together. You can also specify your bedding (twin or queen) when you call.
    -Cost is $99.00 per a room, per a night + any applicable taxes or fees. This includes FREE breakfast for up to two people per a room (per a person, per a morning). They are expecting people to stay up to two nights. Check in is on Friday Nov. 8th -to- check out on Sunday Nov. 10th. BUT if you are not staying both nights, that should not be a problem. (Ask hotel when calling to confirm.)

    6 hours, 350 miles.

    As I said, if my life allows it, I'm always down for meets and roadtrips. I'll try my best to show up only if everyone prays I get the job I interviewed for today, lol.

    Good luck Mikey! Just think positive and know you have it in the bag.
    Looking forward to meeting up. We could always move locations to a better setting (for pics) but there are plenty of spots in downtown Memphis too.

    Hoping we can find more peeps. Should be a blast. Hell we could always take a trip down to Tunica for some gambling too.

    Great thread. I like the title too, Lonestar is good stuff lol.

    If we get at least 10-15 people, none of which are flakers, I would probably make the 7 hour drive, would enjoy having some people to caravan with though. Regardless, a decent sized 6GA meet would be awesome.

    What's DFW?

    Not sure that anyone from here would be up for the trip, so I may have to roll solo.

    There MAY be about 4-5 guys that would probably do it, so that would be good.

    @CB, the route I am taking, takes me on the I-75 through Ohio, so I am sure we could meet up somewhere along the way with whoever else is in from OH/KY.

    Steve I love that you came in here with only the intention of straightening that out haha. Sarr-EE.

    I didn't mean his rendition was better, I just like what I've heard from him lol.


    Derek, how likely are you to do it? You feel pretty confident the car will be done and your wife will be okay at home with the 2 month old?
