Can you post up details on the MI show?  If you are going to the Eagle Motel/Rambler Ranch, maybe we can caravan out.  I may go a coupe of days early and see an account in Hays, KS. 

Have a great weekend

I think it was settled that it would be at the Eagle motel. No one has taken much initiative though. I'm still going to try to make it to that MI AMC show..it all depends on when my sister has her baby.
I am confused.  I thought the Eagle Motel trip was set for October 13?   If the MI meet is in August, then maybe I can do both....Rich

The Motel trip is in October. The MI Show featuring the Eagle's 25th year since last production is like August 19th I believe. Not sure who all is going to that one. Really hoping I can be there...likely without an Eagle though...maybe someone will be selling! :)

The MI show is the same weekend as the Woodward Dream Cruise.  I have not experienced that but everyone who has says its great.

I'll try to start a thread on the definite Rambler Ranch/Eagle Motel/Eagle Nest meet in the next couple days.

I'll be at the Livonia, Mi show on the 19th, not competing though.  My Eagle has experienced a little neglect since I got in my motorcycle accident.

You should still take it. The show needs as many eagles there as possible!

Ok, so nothing is really set in stone... I will create a new thread with dates and info. This is all kind of last-minute so it's really hard to use the Aug 19th, Michigan trip for alot of folks that can't get time off work by then. On the other hand, another month or two probably isn't going to help most folks. SO... officially... we're going to simply remove the Eagle Motel trip since there seems to be the least amount of interest in it and we will go with the Cordova and Michigan meets as this year's "official" meets. I will TRY to make the MI meet but honestly, I highly doubt it's in my budget at the momenr (which is basically no budget at all, lol).

SO... we'll set up a page with both meets and if we get anough for the MI meet, then we'll call it "official" otherwise we'll use the Cordova Meet as the "official" ONLY because there is a bit more time to plan for it.

I apologize for this years fubar'dness and you have my word that it will not happen again. From here on out, dates must be set at least 8mo in advance for early planning. If no one is willing/able to jump in and take the reigns on any given year by the deadline, then we will most likely use the Cordova show as the official Meet spot each year. It pretty much has everything we need/want for a meet. AMC's, car show, racing, lodging, food and even trophies for the Eagle class. I think it's an easier/simpler method to finding a Meet spot if no one else is able to set anything up elsewhere. It's also central US and probably more accessible than most other places so it works out all around. Not to mention, the Cordova guys are always happy to welcome us and we have Nest members that help run the event as well.

But again - this isn't me trying to like "take-over" the Meets - it's just setting a plan in motion for future Meets in case something falls through in the future. Since I've kinda always helped run the Meets, this makes it easier for me to have a back-up plan in case there are any similar issues in the future. And again, it kinda works out all-around for all the reasons above.

SO.... I will start a new thread with both potential meets and we will just have to wing it as best as we can this year and make the best of the situation. And then in future years we know we always have a back-up plan.

So...

Ok I did NOT see this thread...

http://forums.amceaglenest.com/index.php?topic=39507.0

Regarding the Rambler Ranch Meet... I had tried to figure out what was going on mid-June and I got no response. :/ I do not see much interest as far as several people showing up there but I will add it to the "list". It looks like this year will be several mini-meets?

We need to start coming up with ideas for next year so that this does not happen again. This is a bit chaotic lol... but we will work with it and things will be fine. First things first... I'm going to consolidate all of the 2012 topics and then lock all the other threads so we can keep it all together. That is half the problem there - several threads. :/ So I will post more shortly.

Please direct all 2012 Meet posts here...

http://forums.amceaglenest.com/index.php?topic=39533.0

Several posts regarding the 2012 Meet but nothing quite set in stone yet and time is running out. Need to consolidate threads to try and lock something down and get everyone together in one place.

Thanks for understanding! :)
