Official announcement for the 2024 Michigan City, Indiana, road meet.  Please vote for your favored date.

This will include the short, walkable Indiana SR 520, the former US-35 and US-421 in town, the location of the original Michigan Welcome Center in New Buffalo, and more.

I'm going to try to attend this meet if I can.  :)  I voted for July 13 and July 20 which are the only dates that I'd be able to attend.

Right now all open, right now my attendance is "possible"

I live in this area, so I might as well attend this road meet!

Judging from the current poll results, it looks like July 13th and July 20th are in the lead, thus I'll choose one of those two dates.

The only way I might attend is if poo.

I attended the Chicago meet in 2022, and I went through Michigan City on a different trip just before that. I don't have the energy to travel as much anymore.
Might as well face it, pooing is cool

Will keep this in mind, just depends on my schedule

I originally voted for July 13 and July 20, but I now have another commitment on July 13... so the only way I'd be able to attend this meet is if it's on July 20 (which appears to be second place in the poll).  I hope I can make it, but I of course understand completely if the chosen date is a date I can't attend.

I don't generally plan my summer weekends that far in advance, but if I can make it, I will.

Perhaps we could include the new downtown South Shore station?
Indiana: counties 100%, highways 100%
Illinois: counties 100%, highways 61%
Michigan: counties 100%, highways 56%
Wisconsin: counties 86%, highways 23%

Yes.  I'll put it on the itinerary.

Looks like a coin flip between July 13 and July 20.  The 55th anniversary of the first lunar landing is my choice.

Count me in. I'm planning day trip, but it is likely I will overnight Saturday as the drive is over 4 hours.

As a matter of fact, I do own the road.

For me it's 50/50, all depends on my potential "big move" that could take place later this summer

I put the meet information and invites up on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/731270942275609?acontext=%7B%22event_action_history%22%3A[%7B%22mechanism%22%3A%22your_upcoming_events_unit%22%2C%22surface%22%3A%22bookmark%22%7D]%2C%22ref_notif_type%22%3Anull%7D

The date is July 20, 2024, the 55th anniversary of the first lunar landing, at noon Eastern/11 am Central. I picked Redamak's in New Buffalo as an homage to the 2003 road meet held there.  I will post the tour route within the next couple of weeks.

Fixed, thanks.  I assumed (wrongly, apparently) that FB would use the time of the meet location (EDT) and not my location (CDT).

I think we had the same issue with Atlanta since Cody organized the meet.

Unless somebody moved Michigan City, the meet location is on CDT.

Edit: Ah, I see that we are starting at New Buffalo.

Looks like I am definitely out for this one, just found out the Indianapolis Hot Wheels club show is going on the same day and unless Steph and I start the process of moving that weekend I will probably be set up the diecast show.
