Chicagoland meet in the next month or two?

It seems like there are quite a few chicagoland area members around here, so I figure maybe when the weather starts to get a little nicer we can all get together and show off our rides. One place I think would be great for such a GTG would be Saganashkee Slough, right off rt83 and archer. I think it's technically Palos Park. It's not far off of highway 55 and rt 83, maybe 15 minutes. It's a gorgeous setting with plenty of parking and some nice cruising roads. Let me know if you'd be interested and/or have any other suggestions etc. I was also thinking it would be awesome if someone has a shop and would be willing to host a little DIY GTG, but I realize that's asking a lot. Maybe if there's enough of us needing access to lifts and such we could rent out a shop as a group? Let's hear some ideas.

I'm in! Also a good place is Blackwell forest preserve just off Butterfield in Wheaton. A nice scenic place, but not too much parking :/
I can help set up the event.
One thing though, I'm going to be busy fixing my car up for the next month, so maybe some time mid April?

Blackwell is awesome and that is even closer for me. Unfortunately "the man" doesn't think I should be driving, so my car only has storage insurance for the next six months or so. I'd definitely stop by though, just not with the benz. Maybe you could post at peachparts too?

Ok, so we have two options - have a Mercedes only event and get maybe 10-15 cars to show up, or make a German car meet and get a lot of people. I work at a pizza place, so food and drink is not that big of a problem. Neither is space.
Most likely I'll pay for it all, unless there will be people willing to donate prior to the event.
So basically we need to decide two things - what type of meet are we making and when exactly.
The sooner we come up with a date, the sooner we can reserve the area at blackwell and start spreading the word

Peachparts.com is the other leading Benz forum. Everything else is up to you. I'm pretty much helpless without my car. But yea, I think it'd be cool if it were a German meet instead of just Benz.
