Memphis Road Meet plan for this spring
« on: January 20, 2012, 06:10:53 PM »

Hi everyone,

I had mentioned this some time last year about hosting my first road
meet in memphis with emphasis on the future I-269 construction that is
now in full swing in both TN and MS. Cody Goodman and I scouted out
the corridor and found some great vantage points to check out the
construction and determiened a good possible restaurant to have the
meet. I am considering Huey's which is a regional chain with severl
Memphis locations, the locati\ area I have in mind is Cordova which is
near Wolfchase Gallaria off I-40 exit 16, there is alot of motels in
this area and is right off I-40 on the east side of Memphis. The tour
afterwards will consist of us traveling TN 385 (future I-269) from
I-40 south to Mississippi, the highway itself is open to TN 193, then
we would turn on to TN 205 which runs along the construction path of
385 south to Collierville, there is a couple good pull off area along
205 where we can view the construction. The freeway picks up again at
TN 57 then just to the south is ghost ramps for what will be I-269
south going into Mississippi (there is also several SPUI interchanges
along 385) from here we would exit off to US 72 east and travel a
couple miles to Cayce RD which goes into MS and to the general area
where there is heavy construction for I-269.

Afterwards we can see other sights and projects around Memphis\
northern Mississippi, there is also alot of tourist stuff to do (of
course Graceland) and "road geek worthy" stuff too. The tentative
dates I am looking at are the following-

Saturday March 17

Saturday March 31

Saturday April 14

Saturday April 21

I am leaning towards the March dates but any of these dates are fine.
Any feedback please let me know. This will be the first meet ever held
in Memphis, TN

General forum note - road meet activity goes through that sub board, where I saw you also posted.
