Nice to see a group volunteer. Did I miss the discussion about this location?

I really have no interest in attending these meets despite this one being so close, but can't think of a better location for one.

It wasn't long ago that the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore was voted as the most beautiful place in America, beating out places like Cape Cod, Grand Teton, and Aspen...

I don't think there was a discussion. Certainly not a public one.

I find it amusing that three years ago no one was interested in hosting the next event, and it was essentially pronounced "dead". Now we have people co-opting dates three years out.

This great!!!!! I was going to go to Mackinac Island this weekend but one of my dogs got sick. Therefore had to cancel. My dog is feeling better and now have this to look forward to. This close enough that I would bring both Sols. Me in the Coupe and wife in the mean machine.

Of course. I like to plan. By close enough I was referring to geographic proximity. I am in Windsor, south of Detroit.

Have been trying, publicly, for four years to bring it to Michigan. Tough to find a property that would take a group that doesn't golf. Have been consulting Druid, Diana, Chris, and Rick prior to committing.

Again, I am glad that we have a group that is volunteering, but I have been getting a lot of comments to which I agree that if in fact the "national" is held in the east three years running then its no longer a national. Its the east coast regional.

People who cant drive a week to get there will find alternatives I am sure.

Last I checked, South Dakota is not in the East.

Correct. I was referring to the WV after Michigan

I'm nit the decision authority obviously just sharing thoughts.

In the past we discussed and arrived at a level of consensus. I was surprised, and also happy to see people volunteering. That is an improvement over recent experience where finding a host was a challenge. I have not been to Michigan since I visited the tank arsenal many years ago. Sounds like a good choice.

Something to keep in mind...with the exception of Lexington, some of us working 2015-2021 have worked on every event (oops, I think I just volunteered to be a run lead again). I think that core group wants to see things continue so we've volunteered a heck of a lot of time...and happy to have done so. :-)

And thanks to the Michigan group for stepping up. Let us know how we can help James!

Haha! It isn't in the East geographically, but I do believe that some in the group think of it as the far west. Anything that was part of the Louisianna Purchase falls into that category. :-)

There was a comment that Indianaoplis would be a good central location...well it is central if you live anywhere from Denver to New York. Those of us surfin' in the Pacific do the math and last time I checked Indiana is 2000 miles from home. Okay, now I'm just bein' a pain in the neck.

That's a great run on 119 as i used to run the hog up to the H.D. Dealership in Traverse City many moons ago from the the old KFC Air Force Base in Kincheloe Mich. I would always stop at Legs Inn for a Polish meal. Harbor Springs & Charleovix were always my fav.
