    Haha "Take over". Maybe OP's dealership is one that GM isn't renewing?

    This location would be closer to me than Chicago, so you can add me to the list of interested members.

    OK peruse it I shall Nick; I am giving one last attempt to contact the OP, (I left a message for the person I thought it was at Jeff Perry GM). If they no longer hold interest in a meet I also contacted a forum member that is local to that area to spot us a location.

    I guess its evident, the OP is no longer interested as I still have not heard back from him. I will head down to that area in a couple weeks to scope a location

    Well if the op is not up for it maybe we could do it a little more south like Peoria or Bloomington, maybe even Springfield.

    Still interested here. Before I have done meet ups (not from this site) along I74 (Peoria, Bloomington, Champaign) and it seems to be a good strip for people around central IL

    Peoria I believe would be a good location, The main reason for keeping it in the Lasalle/Peru area was relative drive time as there are a couple people from Iowa that were interested. If someone is from the Peoria area I think that would be a great choice as it is 3hr for the IA folks (Peru was also a 3hr drive) 3hr for the Chicago crew if they were interested, and 3hr for the southerners. The next question is who is close to that area to pick a spot and plan a meet?

    Why even bother, I'm the furthest south and Busse Woods is just fine. Especially since I'm crashing at a relative's place on the west side.

    Some reason there seems to be an interest, not sure why as there is already 2 meets in IL. I am just trying to be accommodating.

    I think the interest was generated because there was a chance of having media and a more formal show then just a gathering. As a result of that failing through I think the usual meet is good location for the majority.

    I am with you on that as well, this is going on my 3rd or 4th year with the original meeting spot and that will not change. The majority of the interest generated in this thread was due to people not wanting to make a trec to the Chicago or St. Louis meets. As mentioned earlier there are a couple people that are in Iowa, that are not interested in making a 4-5 hour drive to the 2 current IL meets, as you know that is a long drive for a meet, I am not sure how Giz does it month after month! But for the fem in Iowa that want a meet and the few in central IL that want a meet it makes sense, I think that they might get a decent turnout, may be no where near what we get at the Chicago meets but they have the potential none the less. The South meets would also have a great turnout every month if everyone didn't move to TX.

    Take your location for instance would you be more apt to make the Chicago meet again if you had a meet closer with a decent turnout?


    BTW this is not a chance to change the Chicago location as OP suggested, it is now a chance to build off it and have a meet location for the people in central IL, if the people in the central area would like to peruse this I have suggested that they start their own thread. If not no harm no foul we are just gonna see where the thread goes.
