Thumbs up July 18 Chicagoland Meet...pre-planning thread

Hey all,

I know the idea of july 4 has been thrown around and I know at least for myself I couldnt make it that day, had some previous plans for the holiday. So I was thinking Saturday July 18, somewhere in the chicago suburbs (northwest perhaps?...near Seth and I and a direct shot on the highway for the rest of us).

I was thinking that seth's idea of a bbq was a good one, maybe we could do BBQ/rolling shots/garage shots (theres one in lincolnshire thats fantastic, and empty) We could also go around in Old Long Grove where a lot of the coolest e9x photos ive seen have been taken, some interesting spots there for sure.

If not BBQ we can always just order some food and do some diys etc, basic stuff.

How does this weekend sound for you all?

I'm down for the 18th. There's a place in Highland Park, I think by Half Day Road or something... it's like a forest preserve area with a huge parking lot, and plenty of benches for BBQ's. We use to hold the Integra Type R meets there, back when I drove one.

He resides in Wilmette... I think he meant he lives 5 mins away from the spot I was talking about.
