St. Louis 2016 Roads Meet - July 8-10
« on: November 29, 2015, 12:40:55 AM »

The date will be July 8 to 10.  Preliminary information will be posted next week.

Friday night will strictly be a social event.  If any roadgeeking is done during the day Friday it is likely an "on your own" type of event.

One of the full days will be going to predetermined sites that will be announced later.  The other will likely be devoted to Route 66 related stuff and is being spearheaded by another member of the group.

I'm going to have to pass on this one.  I have limited vacation time after a job change and will be using it (possibly) for Duluth.

Our original plan was to have the meet in either May or June, however, scheduling conflicts and/or lack of hotel availability in those two months has forced us to decide on July 8-10 on a tentative date.  Please keep in mind that this date is not set in stone at this time and it is possible it may have to be moved to a different weekend in the fall.

Friday night will strictly be a social event.  If any roadgeeking is done during the day Friday it is likely an "on your own" type of event.

One of the full days will be going to predetermined sites that will be announced later.  The other will likely be devoted to Route 66 related stuff and is being spearheaded by another member of the group.

If you believe it should be held on a different date, please speak up before January 10, 2016.

Tentatively, yes.

Highly unlikely unless someone wants to pay my way.

Looks like this year is going to be the first year in several that I haven't attended a meet, and it looks increasingly like that's going to be the norm for the indefinite future.

Possible, but unlikely, since I plan to move to Detroit in the near future.

I hope to be able to attend this. These road meets sound extremely interesting (I'm new to this community and have never been to one), and this meet would be right in my neck of the woods.

The proposed date works for me, as far as I can tell.

I am good for Friday and Saturday (July 8,9) but July 10 I will be set up in Bridgeton for the Toyman toy\ pop culture show until 3pm then maybe if there is evening festivities I could participate.

There is a chance that the meet will be held on a different weekend other than the one tentatively scheduled.  My nephew has personally objected to me having an event that weekend - I cannot tell the reason why at this time.  May and June there are lack of hotels in the area where we stayed in 2014 due to various youth softball and/or soccer tourneys scheduled in the area.  October and November are the busiest times of the year at my employer.

If there are alternative weekends in mind please put them down.  The last weekend of March, and the majority of the weekends in April are out due to previous commitments.

If my left foot cooperates, I would be interested.

One thing for me, though: being a duel threat roadgeek/railfan, I'd probably be looking into taking the River Runner from Kansas City to St. Louis and (unless it wouldn't be necessary) renting a minivan in STL for the meet.

[the KC-St. Louis run has been part of all three of my rail journeys: 1995, 2012, and 2015]

Minivan would be a bad idea Richie: my new van is more a cargo van so there isn't much seating.

I just bought a new car this weekend. (2013 Nissan Sentra) I'll probably wind up driving it instead.

Advantage to whomever rides with me: my ADA privileges won't expire until the end of July :)

There will be revisions to the plans posted today in the facebook group.  A couple bridges to the north of St. Louis are being added due to their doomed status for the Sunday portion after consultation from another local roadgeek.
