    I was wondering if there would be some interest in having some of our Southeastern members getting together for a meet-n-greet type event?

    A couple of members have expressed some interest to me, so I said I would put up a post about it.

    I have never done anything like this, so any help, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The summer time is what we were thinkin about.

    I know in September of 2006, myself, powerboatr and jharvey met in Anniston, AL at Sonny's BBQ. It was open to any and all that could make it, but it turned out to be just us 3.

    We could do something like that again, or we could maybe have a drag strip day or dyno day somewhere.

    I live about 30 mins. from the Alabama International Drag Strip in Steele, AL, so there is a possibility of doing something there.

    We could also have a show-n-shine, vendors could set-up, etc.

    Shoot some ideas out there everybody. I myself would like to have it as an alcohol free type event. A good time can be had by all without the need for that around ( I think so anyways ) It makes it more family friendly.

    Bama, I'm interested but this summer will be tough for us to get away. Anniston is about 7 hours for us. A weekend camping trip would be cool although I'm sure everyone isn't into camping. (We are easy to find in the campgrounds: Look for the site with the one ton and a tent :dunno )

    The most difficult thing in planning something is getting a site that everyone can agree on.

    Keep in mind, it doesn't have to be in my home state (but that would be nice for me :sly )

    I was thinking along the lines of southern TN, north AL, or even in northwest GA.

    We can narrow that down in the months to come.

    Anniston sounds great to me, Stephen. My kin on my father's side hail from Calhoun County going back over 100 years. Maybe I'll look up some of the Ray and Ledbetter clan while I am there.
