Default BIG Saturn meet - WI / IA October 14-15

We currently have 23 people planning to show up for this meet. Right now it looks like Saturday, October 14 will be a day of fun & hanging out in Platteville, WI, and Sunday the 15th will be a track day at Earlville, IA.

Would love to have as many people as possible show up - let me know if you would like to know more about it. purdueguy1@gmail.com

I'll try to check back here, but can't promise - I'm on a lot of Saturn forums & can't check 'em all all of the time.

Well, he's on the "definately going" list, so should I add you to that, or the maybe category? Will you race if you go? (it's $40) Would you go just sunday (track day), or saturday and sunday?

For me, purdue, put me down for maybe. If I do end up coming then I WILL be racing. And in the way of what days, it looks like it would probably be Saturday and Sunday.

Now I just have to wait for bc3tech to get his **** together so we can figure this out. LOL...just kidding!

That mean your car won't be in pieces and you'll be free to come to the meet? And would that be both days?

Here's how I'm thinking about it:

"No" - If I'm in denver getting the build done that weekend. Right now we're gunning for the first weekend in Oct so it looks like I should be there, but this is contingency planning. This is also the answer if something goes wrong (good god I hope not) after the build.

"Maybe" - If I don't have the build done by then, and am not going to be out in denver getting it done.

"Yes" - If the build is done and all is going well, and I'm ready to kick some ass at the track.

However, I'm planning on only doing track day right now. So 15th - not the 14th. This could change if wife decides she wants to come along. Or if I feel like actually dealing w/ socialization involving Mr Shaolin.

Sounds fair. Keep in mind, also, that there should be plenty of people there on Saturday besides Nathan (Shaolin), so if you two don't get along, you can avoid him & still have plenty of people to talk to.

Man, 2 1/2 hours is nothing for a drive. If I would attend it would be a 4 hour drive. That alone is supposed to be part of the fun, getting out of your comfort zone and just going for it, enjoying the scenery along the way. I personally just went on a trip up to Fargo for last weekend. Loved every minute of it, a good way to get away.

I guess a 4 hour trip doesn't bother me that much since I'm used to yearly 17 hour trips out to PA. Much slower but much cheaper than flying. But thats just me.

2 1/2 is an easy drive - I've got 5 1/2 (probably more since there will be delays...) We've got a caravan going from Indiana to the Chicago area, and over to Platteville - about a half dozen cars right now. Right now the route is looking at going through Madison, WI if you wanted to meet up with people there, take a break until the caravan arrives, and head to the meet. We haven't planned a caravan back yet, but could probably do something. You should come & meet everyone, OTown.

It's starting to look like a simmilar caravan may be able to form coming from MN/upper WI, too.

i have not checked my IM as of yet but the new blower should be at the shop shortly...... ATI is putting the blower under your name with a new serial number as well.

I will post something or IM or call you when i hear more so you got a new blower for a used blower price...BC3Tech FTW!

Also if we can get the car in friday night and have the fuel system installed, blower bracket and piping and FMIC and all air/fuel gauges are working and fuel pressure is working fine we can tune that same night and get you out the next day!

not making promises but that is my goal!

Well, I regret to say that I won't be making it to the meet. I've had some financial matters arise that prevent me from having the money to make the trip down. Basically, I have to prevent the loss of my car. Sorry guys, really wanted to go but can't.

I agree.

That's the problem with alot of people online. They take everything way too seriously!

I informed mr. bc3tech that nobody was going to port and polish his block, and he took it personally. I have absolutely no beef with him...just had a little bit of fun in one freakin thread...it's not like I followed him around and harassed him or really made fun of him at all, other than what I just said.

Way too much drama.

Anyways, I look forward to seeing him in person if he does go.
