Now that I have your attention...After Kevzaz kicked off the idea of having a BIG meet here... http://forums.genvibe.com/zero...age=1...an
Indianapolis meet has begun to gain some real head-way. We (well, ponta2147 and I) wanted to start this new thread to grab everyone's attention and get a better gauge of interest.Here's what we have thus far: Where? Wolfman213 was generously offering POSSIBLE access to a large enough parking lot, close to most major highways that lead into Indy (69/65/74/70, etc.) However, it looks like the dates just aren't lining up. There are parks/places in the 'burbs, just outside Indy that may work, and Wolfman has volunteered to check into a place or two closer to Anderson, IN. I called the Speedway, and they hung up on me (j/k!). Any Indy natives, please offer alternatives when you respond, so we can get a list going. I know the Avon and Greenwood areas have larger shopping areas/lots. Greenwood has been suggested, and is a strong possibility. When? Some time in June or July, but that will be contingent upon interest, so suggest/mention what weekends in DO NOT work. A pattern of dates to avoid/consider may begin to form... EDIT Our date/time is Saturday, July 17th @ 2 p.m. EASTERN at Sahm Park in between Fishers and Castleton, Indianahttp://visitindy.com/indianapolis/web/jsp/whattodo/detail.jsp?c=8090101:static&p=1Who? The coolest kids around. Matricies (Matrixi?) welcome, of course! "Aww, prairie $hit, everybody" (bonus points if you can name the movie).EDIT 6/21/10: Here is the direct link to the Quality Inn hotel where we have begun to book rooms: http://www.qualityinn.com/hote...AB.11It
is located directly south of the park, not even half a mile away. 5+ GenVibers will be staying there. To see their $$$ totals for their bookings, click on the 17th page of this JUMBO thread.

The May Matrix meet in Ohio (mentioned in the link up top) may work for some of us, but Indy may bring in a wider spread of GenVibe members. I, and many others on here, have never been to a meet, and with everything that has transpired in the past 6 months (Pontiac dead, NUMMI being shuttered, Vibe/'trix no longer in production) we have many, MANY reasons to keep this community alive in celebration. Let's fill this post with ideas/thoughts/suggestions. In my best Cartman: "I love you guys."
Steelies to the rescue.
