Milton must be a pretty elite place to have roadmeet hosting privileges.

I can't recall who proposed this meet, but it's been a while since I last heard anything about it.

Quote from: TheHighwayMan3561 on October 17, 2023, 01:41:39 PMI'm considering a second Duluth meet, with the tentative date of October 27. The centerpiece would be the new I-35/535/US 53 interchange with almost all work on the project likely complete by that date.

Was never really a serious consideration, but confirming will not happen because of both delays in this project as well as committing to being out of the country at that time.

Quote from: A.J. Bertin on October 01, 2023, 11:32:24 AMHi, everyone!  October is here... so we're down to only three more months of 2023.  I figured I would, once again, create and maintain a list of road meets for this next calendar year.

For those of us who are on Facebook, a new group called Road Meets was created over the past week in which folks are welcome to share anything related to road meets of the past and future.  I'd like to give a shout out to Gribblenation, Tom Fearer, Doug Kerr, and Dan Murphy for serving as admins of that group.  Thank you for doing that!  :)  Here's the link to that group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/836455994788814

Even though we now have the Road Meets group on Facebook, I still think we need to keep a list of meets on this forum for multiple reasons.  Mainly, I'm thinking of the folks in our community who are not on Facebook.  I'll be monitoring the Facebook group as well as this forum to keep this list up to date as best as I can for 2024.

Here are the potential meets I'm aware of so far for 2024:
  • New Orleans LA "national meet" - February 17-18
  • Atlanta GA "mini meet" - March 2
  • Bakersfield CA - April 13
  • Charlotte NC "city meet" (choose your own sightseeing) - April 20
  • Salem OR (?) - April 28
  • Southwest Pennsylvania (25-year anniversary meet - "SWPA25") - May 4
  • Milton DE Route 1/16 - June 8 (?)
  • Meadville PA - June 22
  • Indianapolis IN - June 29
  • Michigan City IN - July 20
  • Berkeley Springs WV (MD/PA/VA/WV Quad State meet) - August 17
  • Reno / Carson City NV - September 21
  • Orlando FL - October 5
  • Duluth MN (?) - October 27
  • Brattleboro VT (?) - October or November
  • Austin TX - November 2

I think this captures all the tentative meets I've heard about so far.  If I've forgotten anything or if anyone is thinking of hosting a meet in 2024 that they haven't shared yet (and you're ready to share), please chime in and I will update the list accordingly.

I'm looking forward to our next year of road meets!

I'm keeping the primary list at the top of this thread up to date.  While I can't guarantee that my updates to the list will take place immediately after someone else gives an update on their meet, I generally do update the list within a day or two after I see one of those updates.  :)
