MEEEET!!!
 
I've been seeing a lot of complaints about a lack of meets this year. So in order to resolve this issue, why doesn't everyone that wants a meet get off their lazy asses and get this shit figured out. Sitting around hoping one will just pop up isn't going to do any good. If you want more meets and want the community to come together then lets all work together and make this happen.

First we need to figure out a location and a date. Then from there someone will need to contact the location about it. Also lets post up realistic date ideas, planning for a meet doesn't just happen over night, this will most likely take longer then a week, plus you'll want to have enough notice that everyone will be able to get prepared for making it.

I think we should all try to have a say in this, so if you have an idea post it. It can be anything too. If there was something you liked about previous meets bring it up saying that's what you liked. Same goes for something you didn't like, bring it up. Tired of kids doing burnouts when they leave? Got an idea for how to prevent it? Get it out there!

Alright, now lets get this ball rolling! :cheers:

could do like they do in MN and do weekly sonic meets. I know theres one in Ankeny right on HW 69. I know its quite successful up there, but im not sure how it would do here.

i agree.. however alot of the the venues dont want us due to the problems that come with.. IE the fights and retards not following requests to not be disruptive (burn outs etc). I want more meets, but I think alot of us dont even want to bother putting our name, or waste our time on a scene that has alot of disrespectful people... my .02.

Rising sun has been working on trying to get things set up, but i know they run into alot of issues.. RS , anything we or the community can do to help you help us (the community)to get meets and shows up and going? If i recall, the above is some of the reason a 515 get down isnt happening this year.. ?


Master, I like where your going with this.. As for the burn outs, i think alot of us know who the people are, and maybe we need to lay it down and ban their asses from meets if they are going act like that? Crack some eggs to make an omelet yada yada.. Idk, i think it needs to be clear that that type of behavior isn't acceptable.
Although , having a burn out contest may help give people a chance to do what they are probably going to do any way.

I did like he meet early this year, great turn out, but I personally think there was some asshat behavior..

Perhaps parking lot/structure meets? idk throwing things out there.
I also like the idea of a weekly meet. Sonic on 63rd? or some other place with better parking?

I feel like you guys are over thinking it. For as many people that are gonna come. Its gonna start out small. Make it simple.

Make it a cruise/meet

Every three weeks from now on Sunday 1pm. I know I sleep in on Sunday's and people shouldn't even try to contact me before then lol

Have a few planned spots to go, what time you will be there And how long you will stay. Then move on. If you have a set times people can meet up with you and it will be easy.

Also not stay long will make it easier not worrying about a place and set up.

I hate having a time to be in a certain spots. At least have everyone's number that would like to join get an update of what is going on. Not saying that we should but just an idea. Preferably a day when no one has to work or nothing planned. Small meet with a nice cruise and some photo shooting.

And for all the ones that ruin those events, should just be banned. Nothing more. I believe we are all adults and should act like one as well. Just saying.

Re: MEEEET!!!
 
The reason for it tho is so you dont have to worry about being at a spot. And people knowing where you are going to be.

You stay at one for 30-45mins and move on. The next somewhere really close and do it again.

You dont have to be at every single spot and that's also the point so if you can't be at the beginning or at the end you know what's going on. So if you wanna stay and shoot longer you can and skip the next spot.


I always forget about all the hard parks tho.

Getting peoples number trying to tell everyone is gonna be a another big hassle.

Then make every 3 weeks alternate Saturday and Sundays at set time. If someone can't make they can come the next time.

I see where you're going with this. true. Once a month, not a problem. At least see how it all goes a couple times, and then go from there.

Yes they run into issues just like any state that have shows to put together.....money makes the world go round and quite frankly if there isn't enough then stuff doesn't end up happening. So to answer Most of the questions in here I will state what I can and leave it be.
Reason there isn't a show for this is is simple......THEY ARE PLANNING SOMETHING BIGGER for next year that will set the pace hopefully for future shows and possibly meets as well. You see our scene is young, lacking in effort, sometimes lazy and unrespected by the older generation of car enthusiasts. We want to show them we are mature and have organized supporters who will put us on the map now and in the future. To do so requires time, money and a ton of effort we as sponsors and the show promoters are trying putting forth.

Why haven't they done as many meets as everyone wants you ask? Simple, people het used to the same ol shit every time and before you know it they don't want to do the same shit EVERY TIME. So they have to hold off and sometimes cancel things to keep people wanting more. It has been a strategy that has worked for HIN and other past shows.....the less they sometimes do them the more people want to attend when they do happen. Yes i agree there are people out there who only want to ruin what "fun" we have but unfortunately that is life and we can't always change that.....just live with it and hope it doesn't happen at the next one. To be taken serious requires us to put the hammer down which in turn always has the cry babies asking WHY O WHY ME? then as usual they pass along the word that others shouldn't go because they were treated like shit (Despite the fact we WARNED them ahead) or their cars will be messed with etc...etc..... We have asked in the past to support what we are all trying to do and despite that we somehow always get dogged on because we didn't do something "their way" and now it is "not fair". What people don't realize is the huge amount of time it took to put those things together and money as well. So next year Rising Sun will get things squared off align with us sponsors to ensure the things we bring to the forefront are worth everyone's time and YES their money. We will begin implementing fees to get our shows some needed cash so that we can bring you all MORE.

We are in talks of doing a few meets (whatever we can) this year but are concentrating on bigger things.....the good guys show and even the old World of Wheels are always I'm the forefront of things. They are taken serious....why can't we have what they have?

As far as people doing small cruises or meets.....i welcome them.....it will show that we as a "community" can get together to enjoy a day or two whenever we want. All you guys have to do is ask the areas you will be looking at to be in beforehand. If you get rejected....move on to the next and always make sure you are not rude, even if they turn you down.

Any other questions about any meets or shows.....feel free to ask and I will find an answer for you.

I think by implementing fee's is a great idea, should also help to wein out some of the "bad egg's" and also, if everyone comes to these meets that you and other vendors/sponsors pay for and eat the food you guys pay for and cook then there should be no problem at all to pay some money back to me its only the fair way for it to be, :cheers:


Now i cant wait til next year, im ready for some big meets :teeth: :thumbsup:

Sooo do you guys want to get started on trying to figure this out? Still going to need a place and time.

I like the cruise idea, seems like people always like to cruise in groups to the meets so a cruise from one point to another sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Given there is a designated route and location we are going to. I went to a DSM meet a few years back where they started on top of a parking garage then everyone cruised to a park together. Was a lot of fun and for the kids that had the urge to have a little bit of fun and spin their tires they could do that mid cruise without it ruining the meet or pissing off the places where we met at since they weren't doing it there.

I think something like that shouldn't be too difficult to figure out. All we need to do is figure out a starting location and ending location and plan out a route that won't be too busy or disturbed by a lot of imports.

Now let's get some places thought up. Anyone have any ideas on locations we could check with that would offer enough parking?

Always loved to do a cruise in packs. :thumbsup: seems like hella fun! Best start as soon as possible, seems like summer is almost beginning to end soon. It would be nice cruise around town maybe stop at few parks and just chill for a bit; just an opinion, finish at sailor vile or any major park around town??

I'm only 16 :sad: I wouldn't be able to go to that. Plus if you guys want titties so badly why don't you just go there during your free time?

Lets start a list of suggested meeting spots.

twin peaks is good, ample parking.. and boobs..
Sonic - ok, but kinda limited on parking
Hooters- ok, decent parking, and decent boobies


Lets get a few more suggestions and just start setting dates and times.?

Thank you sir!

Only place I can currently think of that has a good amount of parking is Saylorville and I know they are usually welcome to having car meets there. So that's a location we could add.

I'll update the original post with suggested locations and times. I'm thinking date wise we could plan for August 11th? Given we are able to come up with a good idea for locations quickly enough.
