Hello everyone, I kind of mentioned this to the guys yesterday when I was doing the installs but I am going to green light the idea and wanted to have plenty of time to get a group together.

I am looking to host an end of summer meet/BBQ for Velosters and Veloster Turbos.

The plan is for this to be at Stony Creek MetroPark:

Stony Creek is located at 26 mile and Mound in Shelby Township, MI.

Just to give an idea on time lengths away for some of the regional areas.

Toronto, ON, Canadia -- about 3.5 hour trip.
Columbus, OH -- about 3.75 hour trip.
Chicago, IL -- about 4.5 hour trip.
Pittsburgh, PA -- about 4.75 hour trip.
Indianapolis, IN -- about 5 hours.
Buffalo, NY -- about 4 hours.
Milwaukee, WI -- about 6.25 hours.

There are tons of great picture spots around and I will be able to 'reserve' a pavilion early so we have our own area.

People can feel free to post ideas for things to do to make a day out of it. I was thinking of doing the BBQ, doing some pictures and then taking some sort of cruise.

Map Land lot

I will be posting this over at ***** and on a few Facebook groups also. Hoping to get a great showing!!

Donations and bringing things like chips, paper plates, cups, napkins, etc. will be optional. I will provide a metric ton of burgers, veggie burgers, dogs, brats, buns, condiments, drinks, etc.

I will try to get a few shirts, bunch of vinyls made and will also be doing a couple give-a-ways for 50$ credits and maybe more!

Looking to officially start the meet around noonish and go for a few hours at least before we do some photos/cruise.

Make sure to have a few bucks cash as their is a 2-3$ entry fee to the park!

How far are you from Grand Ledge MI? If I can combine it with a day of guiding/climbing in Grand Ledge I might make it out there to meet some of you guys.

I suppose I good try google mapping my question huh?

You should come up regardless!!!
It's definitely a possibility. Just with guiding and roadtripping for climbing putting me on the road as much as it does it's nice if I can combo things up too. So if Grand ledge were on the way, or not out of the way I could bag a day of guiding, or just go do some leisure climbing and make a whole kickass weekend of it, and buy myself some mods to install at the meet lol.
Yeah, so it's not ON the way, but it's not entirely OUT of the way either. I'll keep this weekend in mind for sure.

Speaking of clean car, I am going to need to wash mine after the ~500 mile drive. Hate to show up covered in bug guts...any decent self wash places nearby?
If I end up able to go we'll have to meet up and cruise together. Any other Chi people going?
Works for me. I planned to leave Saturday morning and stay over night coming back Sunday. I thought you were planning to be up that way climbing.
We'll see how things workout. I may just shoot up there just to hit the BBQ. Just have to play it by ear and see what kind of bookings I have coming up and stuff.
Hotel reservation made.
I was just thinking about that this morning. I hadn't thought about it all before, that I might want to look into somewhere to stay that night if I'm gonna go.
hahaha.. crash at my place.. I got a big backyard.. Bring Yer TentS!!!
Work on our cars all night, until we pass out in our tents. That's my kind of meet.

I'm tentatively booked to guide up in Wisconsin on the 22nd. If that's the case I won't be able to make it, which hopefully they pick a different date lol.
Good and bad. Sucks that you may not make it but incoming revenue is always good.
Yeah, right now it's just an inquiry, so we'll see. But it's a big group, so if it books I have to take it. Especially since things will get really slow now until spring.
Man it's almost tempting to drive out Friday night and then head home Sat. right after the BBQ so I can go guide Sunday the next day, but that is a LOT of driving.
this doesn't happen that often, what's a little driving? :wink:
Over a 1000 miles round trip for the whole weekend, and that includes guiding a group of 7...big groups like that are a TON of work, and I've already been under the weather the last few weeks, so I'll need all the energy I can muster up. We'll see. I'd like to attend, so maybe I'll get antsy Friday after work and just start drivin lol.
monster...lots of monster. :p
I'm more of a truckstop coffee kinda guy.
Yeah, I'm definitely missing out folks. Damn I was hoping to win one of those fobs or a remove before flight keychain lol.
