ELF_DUDE
It is going to happen this year But it may be a lot smaller then it usually is. The show is regenerated every year by the guys who attend, Buy raffle tickets, Donate to the show, I have been tosing this around since last year and have decided to tone it down this year.

I know everyone is geting ready for rockford this year which i am going to try to attend but felt i would get this post started alot earlier this year. If anyone has any ideas they wish to throw by me i am all ears and eyes. I have switched jobs so do not get much time to visit the boards so be patient as i will respond when i can

Yo whassup James?! Just do it like Rockford this year, have a good old fashioned "bro down"! Post up a time and place and then everybody can bring their own food and grills or whatever. We can just hang out, ride and stuff like that, easy peasy!

"im in peoria im a noob here but if its cool im down for it let me know" Dude, knowing ELF_DUDE, you are MORE than welcome to attend. Heck, bring the family and make a day of it. Always good to meet "noobs."

James, you know I will be there. Which park are you looking at this year? Same as last year or the old location?
Since this will be a Bro-Down , I can bring a case of hot dogs and buns as well as the fixins and a few cases of pop. All I ask is for the "Infamous TANG to be there. smile.gif

WIll be good seeing everyone again.
TyStud

It's in Ottawa Illinois. If you bring the family, I know there is a very nice public park in Ottawa that has an awesome pool for the kiddies and the wife. Do make it out, it's always a great turnout and a good time is had by all.

BUMP!!!!

James, I have always enjoyed the show as it has been, how much $$ do we need to raise to cover trophy's and food so that you are not out of pocket ? I will donate towards that and try and send some e-mails and see f we cant all help to contribute if people want to keep it as-is. call me or drop me a pm with your thoughts please. Vette.

I'm in. Saturdays work better for me, have a day to recoup then. What about Illini park or one of Marseilles parks maybe the large parking area over by the Marseilles ball feilds? Could do a pub crawl on bikes. No shortage of pubs in Marseilles. I'm cool with no trophies just a get together with some dogs or burgers and Motomag Moron Chili !

Hey I wonder if there is a spot were we can set up a ramp and do some water landings?

BUMP

ELF_DUDE

I am trying to convince my wife to watch the shop while i go to the show !

Is there anyone looking for parts or bikes? I can bring it there to the show, We carry about every brand.

I have a few of the new SE retros on hand or i can get one ordered up to a week before the show.

Has anyone posted this on the mesume or let the new 44T club out of chicago guys know about the show ?

Bigger the better !

Ultrahots
Is this going to happen ?
getset
I might be in Chicago that weekend and could cut my visit short to possibly make this. I see Ottawa is right off I-80 and not real far out of the city. Any more details to help us nail this thing down?
ELF_DUDE
Sorry i have ben so vacent I have been trying to crunch numbers and places. My original spot has been reserved this year and had a hard time finding another spot. My focus every year is to make the show the best it can be but unfortunatly this year is going to have to go in a differant direction.

This years will be more like a Bro-Down, It will still be the same day of the 13th but the location will be at my home. I know this informtaion is a last minute change of direction but at this moment it is the only option i am going to have. If you are interested in Helping with food or drink please contact me via PM, I am still trying to assemble a raffle table, My main focus is being able to gather. If you are wanting to swap again contact me I have a enclosed backyard I can accomidate. If you have any questions again PM me I will be checking them frequently


My address is
208 broadway st
marseilles, IL 61341

The time is around 10am but not a exact time frame

OK roll call who for sure is coming?



Who's in for some raffle stuff?

Who wants a pub ride?

Who's interested in some river jumping?

Who's up for some bunny hopping?

Who's up for bringing some food or drinks? (pot luck call)
ELF_DUDE
there is definatly a pub ride this year the river jumping not so sure of due to being able to have aramp built. I did hear of a home made salsa possibly being in atendance. There will be Tang and dogs and burgers again this year. Fire this thread up guys if you choose to drink remember it is BYOB and If you want to bring some food to share lets do it.

Well I had a good time today. Though the gathering didn't bring the crowd it normally does, there was still good times to be had. Just hanging out and bull$h!tting about whatever, selling and swapping parts, eating some good food, and a nice little ride at the end was good enough for this cat! Willinois, first thing my son did when he got home was yank my wife out of the house to show him the goods you hooked him up with, you da man brother and always a pleasure to hang out! Chuck, good work on the grill my friend, Thank You a ton for the Predator!!! Jason and Frank, good to see ya guys ride down and hang out! Steve, good chatting with ya, I'll be comin by the shop to hang out soon! Dan, man is your Profile a killer bike, the best part being you pulled it out of the box when it was new BITD, AWESOME!!!! Nutzy and Alaina, great to see you guys as always! James, Thank You once again for hosting this gathering, great to have one so close to home, Thanks for hooking me up with the Predator parts too!

So until next year peace out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GR8BNDINI
