What to do? 2014 Meet planning.
« on: December 04, 2013, 11:00:39 AM »
Hey everyone. With all of the chaos with the forums over the last year, it has been a long time since there has been a "National" meet. I, for instance, have never been able to attend one. The first wasn't long after I got mine, and it certainly was not up to the task then. Lets use this board for ideas for locations, times, etc. Maybe once we get a few ideas, we can put up a poll to start planning.
My list of my cars/toys (or toys at my disposal!)

1985 AMC Eagle Sportwagon
2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic
1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SL
2016 Triumph Bonneville
 1962 Cruisers Inc Mahogany Outboard

I like to to tell people my Eagle is like a Ferrari. It's quirky, tempermental, border-line exotic, and something you don't see everyday.  See? Makes perfect sense....

Regional meets seem to work best.   In the past we have also had European members visit.  It would be great if we could see some VAM folks and their cars as well.

I do believe this year is the bi-annual AMC Eagle meet in CO at the Eagle Motel. It's probably going to be the largest gathering of Eagles this year and should certainly get the 2014 International Eagle Meet stamp...even if we don't have anyone there but USA guys. We like to leave it open for anyone outside the states to come. Besides that hopefully the new Map being created can help some others find more regional guys to have little mini meets. If I remember correctly the Eagle Motel meet is usually one of the weekends in October. There are also Captspillane's 2 annual meets he has started doing every years.

That's what I had thought, and I would REALLY like to make that trip this year. We probably need someone to plan though. I could definitely help, although it would most likely be useful for someone more out west to take up a bulk of it. I have already begun planning for this personally as I would like to swing down through AZ to visit family then head back to Ohio. I want to make a two week road trip out of it.

Is he the one who organizes it? Also, is he aware of the "updated" forums?

I'll be glad to help coordinate things with Terry as the time gets closer.  Like Rafe said, its usually in early October, and includes a quick tour of the Ranch on Saturday morning, a drive to the Eagle Motel with a couple stops along the way, and dinner at the german restaurant.  No organized activities on Sunday, although most people grabbed breakfast at the same restaurant just down the street from the motel.  A few Nest members gathered at the Ranch on Friday and spent a good 8 hours touring and helping Terry get some of his Eagles ready.  Its really a fun time!

Thank you Dave for helping on this.  The last Eagle Motel trip was a blast!  This is one meet you don't want to miss.

I've been wanting to make the Rambler Ranch tour and the Eagle Motel run since I first heard about it. 2014 will be the year that I will finally be able to make it.

I'm looking forward to meeting some members in person. I've been given some very helpful advice from them in the past and it has been very much appreciated.

I would be willing to help out with an Eagle Meet EAST, I'm in Tennessee as is EagleFreek, its kinda in the middle of the East and pretty easy to get to from about anywhere. I have lots of room for a meet along with a grill for cooking!! Nice campground at the state park here too

If there is enough interest I would volunteer to host,

If you ever have a Regional meet I could probably make a TN meet no problem.

I would be interested for sure. TN is not too far from me...about 8-10 hours I think. I would love to do that.
