OK, figured I start this thread as a catalyst for future meets. One of the biggest problems with starting meets is finding something to do. Hanging out and checking out each others' cars is fine, but not for hours on end (unless it's a medium/big car show). So post some suggestions, either an overall category or actual locations, and I'll add them to this first post. Hopefully this can be stickied if it gets big enough.



Go Karts
Racing
Car show
Food + Video Games
Outdoors
  • Beach
  • Park

Another one for go-karts is Ocala grand prix. The rack is a lot nicer than the one in orlando and we can rent it out for the day as a group. Thats hours of racing for $130 each. I'm not 100% sure but the price could go down with the more people we have. Minimum number to rent track is 5 ppl.

It's kinda far for the southern guys but its honestly worth it.
I went a few weekends ago and the karts are in good shape, pretty quick too.
The people there are very cool and there's a ton of great places for pictures afterwards, not to mention the epic pics of us racing on the track.

food for thought

Considering the length of the cruise we took the other day, it's not too unreasonable to have the meet start at some place like a beach or park, then cruise to another location for food/entertainment.

the cruise is always the best part of a meet so the longer it is the better lol

I think a weekend meet would be cool, something like they do for the supras "Texas meet." They do dyno day and the 1/4th and road course the next. If we could get enough people maybe cfrc would let us do something like that.


West Palm
-ALOT of good places to eat
-nice beaches for photos
-city place- bars, shops, huge theater
- Nice hotels

Orlando
-CFRC, go karts, bithlo speedway (races fri and funday sunday)
-alot of nightlife
-idrive


Tampa
-Camp out at Justins new house haha!

^Exactly 7hrs is a long drive THERE, then 7 back. You wouldnt get home until the early morning. I have been to Miami too many times. I have more fun in west palm and lauderdale.

you should see if they would lower the price with more ppl attending. 130 seems like alot, dont think everyone would be down. but the idea is really good, and if they lower the price i'm sure we can get alot of ppl to attend

Just sent them an email inquiring. If I can't get an answer that way, I'll stop by this weekend, since it's close to me.
