Chicago Area - Stretch Your Legs III Meet

Gentlemen,

The last two SYL events were great successes, let's get another one. Our last event had NOS energy drinks come out and provide everyone with FREE refreshments, this meet they're probably coming out again! If they don't show up, they'll be delivering refreshments. We'll have a BBQ going and hopefully this time someone will bring a proper spatula.

Here is our Facebook event: Welcome to Facebook - Log In, Sign Up or Learn More

Details:

Time/Date:
Sunday, May 15 · 12:00pm - 3:00pm (last meet went to about 5 before we did a cruise to Woodfield)

Location:
Old School Forest Preserve
28201 N St Marys Rd
Libertyville, IL 60048


I'll be attended again and will be doing photoshoots of those cars whose owners come up and ask. Here are some pictures on my flickr from the last event: StanceWorks/JDM Chicago Stretch Your Legs Meet II - a set on Flickr


Get off those couches and let's try and get a great turnout again! Last meet had around 100 people (about 60-70 cars) come out and there were frigid temperatures by the lake.


I realize this meet has all sorts of cars involved, but it is a car lovers meet. Not a specific make or country meet. There are Audis, BMWs, Mitsubishis and Hondas around - I've been the only Mercedes present for the past two meets, I want some more German fury around! Let's get some more tuned Mercedes out there and make a presence! Bring a good attitude and don't act like an arsehole (no burnouts, please). If enough Mercedes show up I'll be willing to organize some Mercedes only meets.

Hello:

I'll come.

I'll bring the 20K mile 1993 500E and if I find another driver I'll bring the E320T with a mostly 500E body (work in progress), both in Malachite Green/Mushroom and both with the "Like a Drug" Illinois plate.

Kind Regards,

Ron

I might recognize the car, but I have no clue who that is. There are so many E36's on Stanceworks it's ridiculous.

For those who showed up to this meet, I'll have pictures up soon. Not as exciting as the last few meets, granted the absolutely crappy weather, but still a decent turn out for the circumstances.
Apparently people don't understand Rain or Shine., which is unfortunate.


Thank you for coming out and please don't let today's event deter you from any future meets. These are normally very exciting and are chock full of cars of all makes. I'll be looking to set up some Mercedes only meet for a poker run/cruise style event in the next few weeks, so please look forward to that.
