GenVibe meet 2014, July 19 in Pontiac, Ill

Post by KITT222 » Fri Jun 13, 2014 12:20 pm

Come one, come all, to the GenVibe meet for 2014 in Pontiac, Illinois!

Location:
Pontiac, Illinois
Date: July 19, 2014

Hotel: Best Western in Pontiac - Not official, but that's where most of us will be
Campgrounds: There's one out there for $16/night
http://www.livingstoncountyagfair.com/camping/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Itinerary:
Friday: Arrive, pre-meet stuff. Mostly what people are up for, but likely dinner someplace (like Bernadi IIs).
Saturday: Actual meet, time TBD. We will also be attending a cruise night, along with an Edsel car club. Tour the Pontiac-Oakland car museum, do pictures somewhere, and dinner (probably at Pontiac Family Kitchen)
Sunday: Checkout and head home. Some of us will likely do breakfast at Pontiac Family Kitchen before we roll out.

This is similar to how last year's was. I'm interested in seeing if anyone has anything they'd like to schedule or add. Also, please tell me if you are going so I can start a list of people. As of now I know there's these people:

Attending:
KITT222 - Nick (myself)
Vibenvy - Carrie + mother
hotbug1776 - Andrew + small humans possibly
zvibe04 - Zane
ShadowSnF - Corey + GF

Maybe
lannvouviere (I butchered that, didn't I?) - Leigh
smashley - Ashley
derf - Fred
dgekiere - Doug

Facebook Event (faster updates):
https://www.facebook.com/events/1387088398199264/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Once we get closer I may request people's phone numbers, as once we're there the forum is difficult to use via potatophone, and not everyone uses Bookface.

We will also be getting an official logo at some point, and I may do another banner like I did last year.

I look forward to seeing everyone again! And new faces as well.

That's the most beautiful butchery ever.

I am like

super-tempted

to swap with someone for DBW

but alas, I would proooobably have to switch out harnesses to the ECU as well.

At least I butchered in a good way (I guess).

And don't you meant DBC conversion?

I may have some children with me, including you favorite of my daughters Nick. Still looking into having them stay with my parents for a few days. we'll see how that goes. If it rains, I'll opt for the hotel room to avoid being soaked, as has happened to me before. I'll choose the super 8 though, as it is $20 cheaper. Yes, I am a cheap azz.

The later date will work better, will have to see what work schedule allows. Who will be at the campgrounds?

An Edsel car club and Vibe meet up. Could see some similarities, both were separate divisions of parent companies based on experimental research.

The lady running the campground wouldn't take a reservation. She said there would be plenty of sites that weekend after I asked several times if I needed to make a reservation.

I have a room reserved at the Best Western for my mom and I. We will be arriving late afternoon on the 18th (5-6ish). We are planning on getting dinner at Senor Tequila's across from the Best Western (assuming it's still there), then hanging out in the pool, etc. We will be staying over Friday and Saturday nights and will be leaving Sunday morning. We will be bringing my Vibe and my Vibe will be sporting a new, big surprise which I will not unveil until we arrive in Pontiac. I look forward to seeing everyone in a couple weeks. Everyone have a safe trip.

I've made my own reservation at the hotel and am very excited to get there now! Who all is coming so I can get a better idea for attendance?

I'll be staying in Dwight on Friday night, and Pontiac Saturday night. We were going to camp, but alas, young Olivia is still a camp wanderer in search of a potty when needed. Therefore, we will be roughing it in the motel.

It is with great sadness that I make this post...

my mom and I will not be coming to Pontiac afterall :(. The past few days I have been experiencing some health issues and we decided it's better for us to stay close to home this weekend. We'll be thinking about you guys and we'll be looking forward to lots of pictures. Sounds like the weather's going to be decent down there the whole weekend.

Oh, and for anyone that was wondering what the "surprise" was that I was going to "unveil" on my Vibe in Pontiac, I will just go ahead and post it here... last week I had a Magnaflow catback exhaust installed on my Vibe :twisted:! It sounds soooo good! Ever so slightly louder than stock and it's all nice and tucked up and hidden under the rear bumper cover and the underbody so it's very stealthy which is exactly what I wanted. I couldn't be happier with it and of course, my mom's Vibe will be getting one shortly :cool:! I will post some pictures within the next couple days.

Uh oh, Carrie! Feel better. If you end up better by the weekend there's a place for you! But I'm getting really excited for this. The Best Western in town is booked out, so hopefully there will be a few Vibes there Friday night.....

Sorry to hear this Carrie, hope you can make maybe just a Saturday outing if you feel better. I had to stay in Dwight due to lack of rooms in Pontiac. It's more exciting to know that the town will be bustling with activity.

GenVibe meet 2014 schedule - July 19th

Be in the parking lot in front of the courthouse before 11 AM. Meet there earlier than 11 so we can do breakfast and meet a bit before things get moving.

At 11AM we will be moved in front of the Pontiac-Oakland Auto Museum, where we will stay for the cruise night.

Cruise night starts at 3PM - we need to be there by then or roads will get closed up and you won't be able to join us.

Dinner wherever.

Any questions?

As soon as I figure out that trick I used to get the pictures off my Ipotato... In the meantime, I'll link to the GV FB page. It's an open page, so you should be able to see them.

Thanks Nick ... but it didn't work. That link merely goes to a mandatory "sign in" page before you can continue. I'll wait to see them here on GV. Thanks ;)

Same here, tried to find different link to GenVibe FB group, all require login, appears somewhere the group setting needs changed to public access.
