I havent been to Greys or waterworks, so im not sure on street condition. Just something to keep in mind when setting up meets.

WDM has some of the nicer spots imo.
WDM would get shut down real quick.

Why would it be shut down? It's not illegal to cruise around with a bunch of cars. I've cruised in groups of 20 out there before with no issues.

if its so low that it would scrape and has nice paint, why make it that low in the first place?

Dsm nice paint? Sorry last meet I attended all the dsm owners parked at a angle which is fine but they were all busted, different colored parts, missing side pieces all around looked like shit and a bunch of dragon ball Z players haha. (rant over). I'm in for august somtime. I was driving around for work and noticed the old Tokens play place on grad right off of 63rd is closed and that parking lot looked decent. I didn't see anythif saying we couldn't chill tere or whatever unless west DES moines pd rolls up and kicks everybody out.

Hmm. You must not have looked that hard then.. the black evo is stock.. so no paint missing there.. and mine was just painted and has all panels.. I'll admit most of the other ones were not so hot.. but no need to condemned us all. .02

I do agree, probably should avoid the bad roads and keep it low car friendly.

Anyone else have any location ideas? Plus what's everyone's thoughts on a date? Any other suggestions or does Aug 11th sound good?
Low? What is this nonsense? Stock ride height to clear real tires on big power cars...

Back on track guys, you can talk all the shit you want after we get this figured out. Trying to get a meet situated here.

Tokens? Hmmm I like the sounds of that, maybe see if we can figure out who owns the property and what their thoughts are on us coming out there for a meet.

It would cause mine is motor less and no front end on it hah. The different colors is fine by me but when it's the same people who bash on everybody else's cars, and when they are the one with no side skirt and what bot I just laugh. Nearly 98% of all dsm I see riding around town around des Moines look like they just came from the first fast and furious minus a clean paint job. Last thing why do almost all you dsm owners claim your cars are the fastest and you will run laps around everybody?

Tokens would be a good spot too, good idea.

like properly built, clean hondas, properly built, clean DSMs are a rare site. i see more F&Fesque hondas/acuras running around than anything else.

parking structures are always a good idea. plenty of room AND parking spots lol, and less people to hassle us if we go to the top.

Added Tokens to the list. I think I might drive by there sometime within a week to verify it'll be a low car friendly spot.

Next thing I would like to bring up is how would everyone like this to go? I was thinking meet up at a spot for 45 minutes to an hour and a half, then cruise to the next spot where we will finish up the meet hanging out for 3hours or more. This way it gives people the option of opting out on the cruise portion if they please. The reason I would like to keep it limited to 2 locations is so we can see how well cruising works. If it proves successful then for the next one (if there is a next one) we can plan for more locations.

Sounds good. Deff keep it simple, If while cruising part of the train gets cut off via stop lights, we dont want them to be lost and lead others to doom. May post up a route in case others want to join mid cruise, or get separated etc?

It would be kind of kool to do a poker run :) at some point

Yes definitely have a designated route that everyone will take. This way nobody will get lost from the group in case of red light situations. I would really like to have a good stretch of highway/interstate/multi lane high speed road as part of the cruise.

surprising. i think ive gone by 3 state troopers, 2 sheriffs, and countless local cars and have not once been stopped because of not having my front plate on. i have it in the windshield, but i know its supposed to be secured.

City never gives me issues (knock on wood). He wanted to get me for something, its all he had.. he tried to tell me my modified exhaust is illegal, even tho i was in N the whole time, even when I passed him, and he tried to say my windows were tinted because he saw them up as i went by (my windows are manual, and dont have levers.. they were down , and have never been tinted.. he just wanted to pull me like a dick..

He was a smart ass which is typical of a trooper. Oh well. when they call for donations, ill be sure to waste 87$ of their time.
