You meant 2022, didn't you? Isn't 2020 (next year) South Dakota? Or did I miss something?

WM, has the Michigan Kappa Group ever discussed holding a regional type show? It seems like there are enough MI members to make it happen. I could see a Michigan Regionals draw participants from Ontario, Ohio, Indiana & Illinois.

Dan: I guess we will find out with how the nassam 2021 in MI goes. We could also sponsor something in WV because 30 of us did it last year and have all the cruises and focal points sellected. MKC has short day cruises about every other weekend all summer. This year the weather hasn’t been nice to us, so far. Come join us sometime! Drive those cars!

We are planning on bringing several club cars to Michigan. 6 to 10 is my current guess

I attended NASSAM for the first time this year. It was loads of fun. I also saw how the organizers were really doing a lot to make the event a great thing. I would like to volunteer for the upcoming years. I am not sure I can make it to Rapid City due to distance and work, but I would be very eager to help behind the scenes if needed.

Captain Obvious here, the reason I suggested MKC is to keep it local along w/offering different experiences other than going on long cruises. For example visiting the Henry Ford Museum Complex, Belle Island (great place for a car show), Green Field Village, & Renaissance Centre. Throw in an autocross and swap meet and cars for sale area, etc at a host hotel.

BTW, I'm not suggesting a week long event, more like three days. Also not suggesting a regional event anytime soon, just something to discuss and think about to keep it local in in the future. Because I do believe holding a regional in the same place every year would encourage more and more people to attend an event that they know is going to be in the same place every year.

BTW, our great city planning department pulverized our asphalt road last Saturday, and then left. We haven't seen hide or hare of one road crew person all week. Add all the rain we've received and we have ruts, mud puddles and now road dust stirred up by people ignoring the road closed signs. Point being, cars haven't been moved for about two weeks now, but my insurance company is happy to keep reaching their payments.

Rather than suggesting that someone else do this, why not work on it yourself?

John because the title of this thread is National Meet Discussion. I was discussing alternative ideas. BTW, have I done something to offend you? Because it seems like you take an adversary position to some of my postings. Feel free to block me if my postings irritate you.

Well, yeah, I got the idea that you were discussing different ideas, and think that as long as they don't conflict directly with the NASSAM, more and larger meets are a great thing. My comment was based solely on the fact that your post made it appear that you, like many others, seem to be in favor of meets but want someone else to do the heavy lifting. My intention was to suggest that planning something would be better than asking if someone else was going to.

As far as taking adversary positions to posts, isn't that the basis of a true discussion? An idea or opinion is posted and others either agree or disagree with it. I can disagree with something without being irritated or offended by it, but I will see if I can make my comments less offensive and/or irritating.

Choptops done as much or more for this forum than anyone and has never been rude. Please learn respect when speaking to others. He was asking a question and making observation to wickedmike, and you responded by implying that he doesnít do enough. You picked the wrong outlet to express your frustration with armchair quarterbacks and then you tried to justify it with your last paragraph, which has nothing to do with this situation.

Before one can start planning anything, a discussion has to take place to figure out if there any interest in the first place. Regardless, I'm not going to get drawn into an discussion, debate or argument about the who, what, or the why of my questions. Life is too short, and I'm old enough to know that people rarely change their minds about anything. As I said, if you find my postings irritating please feel free to block me.

Now can we please just move on and get back to the discussion about Nationals.
