    I understand the too-far-away replies. Frankly, I was hoping to make more of a road trip out of it. LOL

    Depending on the date I should be able to make it. I’m in NW Indiana, about 30-40 minutes outside of Chicago.

    Signed up for the facebook group.. as much as I dislike facebook.

    The wife says she is all for the trip (about 1500 miles and 12+ hours) if the date works out. October is probably better for us than November would be. Dates and reasonable lodging would make the decision one way or another.

    I would probably make the drive up from Indy for the event. I would prefer early to mid October for weather reasons.

    I agree, early October would be good.

    If I could rent a Stinger in Chicago I would fly up.

    People to people contact just as good as people to car contact. Check my garage.

    My rule of thumb, after living just southwest of there my whole life, is to have the snow tires on by 11/12. First snow of the year usually hits about then. So, no later than October makes sense!

    I am over in Detroit and would be all about this. Drive is fairly quick and I have some good friends in the area (Villa Park and Elk Grove).

    Consider the Canadian contingent just north of the border, and that Canadian Thanksgiving will be celebrated this year on October 8.
    As the weather in Chicago is historically considerably nicer in early October than later, attendance and interest in road trips will be enhanced.
    It's about 8 to 9 hrs from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to Chicago. A very doable road trip, as long as the weather holds up.
    So yes, if Stingerfest-East can be organized to happen early October you will be seeing us there with a whole bunch of Canadians (presumably)... :) :)
    Actually already looking forward to it!!!!

    Okay, I'll make it a point to get this going for October... I've been crushed with work the past few days so I haven't had a chance to get situated with our event coordinator. I'll be working on that over the next couple of days...
