Chris and I may swing by, but we have a wedding to attend on Sunday morning on Mackinac Island, so it'll be a long drive Saturday night. We're still trying to hammer out the details.

It's a lot of driving in one day.

250 miles from Chicago to Toledo, and then 330 from Toledo to Mackinac Island. The latest we'd be able to leave would be 3pm. We would still have to take the ferry to the island after all of that driving. I don't know about that.

So it looks like all 4 of us will be there. Austin, what happened to Sunday? You are probably just hanging out with your "new Scion friends" on that day. Haha

Dude, where have you been? I'm coming up to the 'zoo next weekend, so either you're coming down, or I'm coming up.

Have you finished your new turbo install yet??????? I'm exited to see it.

Cory gonna make it?

celica9303
07-30-2011, 07:16 PM
Hey chris- stacy mentioned coming over Friday before the meet to cut down on driving in a single day. I'm planning on taking the day off maybe we can make it a pick and pull day if you guys come early enough.....not sure what's in the local yards but ya know.

Eric- you and cory are welcome to come down early also.....and I'm still down for Sunday too

alltracNyx
07-30-2011, 07:23 PM
We'd both have to work that Friday til roughly 5pm CST, which means it'll probably take 3.5 hrs to get there, plus the 1 time zone difference. I doubt Pick N Pulls are open that late, lol.

08-02-2011, 12:23 AM
So it seems, according to my schedule, I will be back in Ohio come the end of August. So, yeah, maybe, ya know, I'll make it up that way. :sarcastic:

It means you get to wear the tiara while he rides you. If he chooses to call you Duchess, you must be topless.

What, are you going to buy a Celica from the yard the day of and enter it?

September 17th is set in my schedule. John, a 1,300 mile roundtrip (via freeway) is nothing, especially with trophies involved. According to the map, this is a 2,300 mile oneway trip for myself...

celica9303
08-16-2011, 06:01 AM
One month away! I'm getting excited for some boost it t-town.

Update-austin.c may not be there this year pending job/moove to canada but well still have a good time, ill get with him about said plaques he mentioned.

Should I start a food list?

Car_Barn_Bandit
08-16-2011, 06:34 AM
Food yes.

celica9303
08-16-2011, 07:41 AM
Ill bring hotdogs/buns and charcol and ill get some coolers for ice and pop.

What does everyone want to donate?

alltracNyx
08-16-2011, 07:09 PM
Chris and I still have to figure out whether we'll go up there Friday night and crash at a hotel, or drive up Saturday morning.

Do we have a head count as of yet? It would help to know how much of anything I'll have to make.

For the meets that we hold in the Chicago area, I usually make pico de gallo and puppy chow, and bring chips.

celica9303
08-16-2011, 09:20 PM
Stacy- as far as I know its me, you and chris, klapa, possibly captian, car barn bandit, eric and cory, my dad,my friend matt with his 4runner. And hopefully a few mr2 guys and some supras. Oh and spencer.

I think I shall bring my Chili con Carne. Normally I'd donate my BBQ pork ribs, but money being where it is, I can make
my chili go further. I'll see if I can round up some Jarritos to make this knockout.

I've got a checklist running to get finished:


Hood/Bumper paint
Sidemarkers installed
Paint flake touchup
Wheels painted
Rear caliper paint
Bumper adjusted
Emblems reapplied
ENGINE FREAKING CLEANED


Looking forward to showing off my Canadian ride.

celica9303
09-07-2011, 04:06 AM
Me- charchol/ lighter fluid hot dogs/buns
Stacy and chris-pico....aka salsa, chips too??
Cbb(micheal)- chili and jarritos
Captain-?
Spencer-?
Art-?
Jim-?
Andy-?
My dad- hopefully hamburgers/cheese
Matt(best friend)- unsure
6gc member- water/pop
Local Supra owner- ? He said he was gonna show and tell other supras about it

Iguess if worse comes to worse walmart is right down the road if we need to make a run or 2.
Hope to see everyone make it safely.

Ill have the tarps with me again this year too :-)

Here I am :) I have been watching the thread that Austin made and told me was where all the info was at. I even looked this morning and there still wasn't much. So I will start using this instead.

I will be there. Not sure if I will come down Saturday morning or drive down Friday and just get a hotel, but as of right now I am still planning on being there.

Let me try to think and see what I can bring and get back to you :)

Unfortunately, they do not sell it in Michigan. Ohio will start distributing it in a month or so, and I'm impatient.

If the Captain is coming up, I know he'll bring me some cans!

That's a grand idea :) Two is always better than one. Not sure if I will be able to make it next year as Aaron will be ETS'ing from the Army at that time and we will be getting married again 3 weeks later, so it will be a busy time of year, but I will have to see when it gets closer. Hopefully it will work out though.

Like what persay? Like a time schedule? Nah not really. Figured wed start the grill around 11ish then cruise some time in the afternoon out to the lighthouse....with a lot of celica/toyota bsing in the middle. We should have a good mix of cars this year if everyone shows from 4runners-alltracs-mr2's-supras ect and some scions.

Speedricer
09-14-2011, 02:56 AM
I assume we are using the nasty grill at the park again. Someone should bring a shovel or something to chip the shit off the grill before we use it.
I'm hoping to be there around 10am and Cory is not going to make it... even though he has his car running now.

Does anyone need any st185 engine parts? I have some extra stuff laying around.
