    Yeah we're working hard to get somethin going! We're working with DKI (Downtown Kalamazoo Incorporated) and we'll be submitting a request to the city for the street blockage first thing Monday morning. The one snag with this option might be the costs involved. If it's not terrible, I'll cover the cost, or hit up local businesses and dealerships to pitch in. If it ends up being too much money though, the location will probably change, because I don't really want this turning into an event where I've gotta make people pay to show up.....wanna keep it casual and accessible for everyone. Hopefully the city will realize that it's a good opportunity for them as well; bringing so much new out of town business to the area. More updates next week, stay tuned!

    Not sure if you guys are interested... but every fri and sat nights 1-200 cars meet up at Dawg Dawg's hot dog joint in Grandville(grand Rapids) during the summer.

    Everything from BMW's, Porsche's, Vipers, crazy fast muscle cars(some have chutes), bikes, ect. They usually show up around 8pm.. then later in the evening... anything from Drags to highway runs for those wanting to play. Super friendly oriented with tons of people sitting in lounge chairs...ect.

    just letting you know.

    Yes, April 25th is the date.
    As of now, the downtown water street coffee joint location (street closure) is the primary location. The city has already been contacted and the proposal has been submitted to the necessary people. The city clerk informed me that we would have an answer by the first full week in April. (Doesn't sound like there's any reason for them to deny it, should be good) But, just to be safe, we are finding a good backup spot. Will try to have all that info posted up by the 1st of April.

    You want to start a list of people planning on attending or is there one already? Might want to find a park nearby as an alternate
    location depending on how many cars show up which is where the list comes in handy.

    Yeah, we should get a list going of people who are definitely going. I was going to wait until I posted absolute final details on location, but knowing roughly how many people are showing up will help, so post up if you're coming!

    Original post has been updated, check it out
    Things are going good with the downtown street closure, shouldn't encounter any issues, but we've got a backup location just in case.

    I would like to suggest that people bring their Peake or OBDII tools to the event to help any one that needs a reset or code read. Maybe people do this already but I thought I would suggest anyway. I have an e36 tool peake R5 tool. I need to get a new one for e46's.
