Either AutoX or Go-Karts at Speed Indoor Racing in Fort Lauderdale are a must, IMHO.

Lex,
all great ideas for sure!!!!
auto-x is an all day event, hence the meet would have to be more than a day in order to do other things.
either or, auto-x or go karts are a must. The A1A cruise is a great idea, we had brought it up for past meets, never realized though. I think we should stick with it this time....what a site to see a bunch of IS's cruising down ocean drive!!! now, who is going to volunteer to take vids and pics!
Mark Ham park is kinda in the middle of the three counties, so that is my vote for a park.

From my selfish point of view, the June or July dates would work far better than the August dates. Around those August days I'll be taking my son back to Gainesville for the start of the UF '05 fall term. Then again, I know many of the potential meet attendees are in college as well...

Another random thought: Steve And Tony wanted to set up a meet at JM Lexus whenever they finished their service department renovations. To my knowledge, they're either finished or nearly so...

If you looking in Palm Beach County, Sugar Sand is a good park. If you are looking in Broward, Markham park is nice and it is easy to get to. I think a visit at JM is a great idea as well.

I would keep it simple and only make it for a couple hours, if it is a whole day or multiple days the amount of people that will commit might be lower.

Also it might not be a bad idea to do an informal "get-together" at a mall parking lot or restaurant to get a feel for the amount of people that might turn out.

I know in Broward there is a weekly get together for cars at Tower Shops in Davie, right off 595. It is free and there is a bunch of cars of all types. You could have an informal meet there, build interest, and with the cars in attendance, you could plan your own event.

They did that for the shining monkey meet, as far as feeling out the public, usually alot of people come its just getting the word out...and for a 3 day event it works out nicely gives everyone something to do or go to if they cant make 1 day they have the other two days as options...

How About Eveyone Who Can Get Together For A Mini Meet At Towers On Every Friday Night. It's Easy To Get Too And Right Off Of 595 And University. We Can Also Schedule A Meet In That Marking Lot On Sat Or Sun Whenever. I Have Had Other Car Meets There Before. Always Had A Good Turn Out. I Used To Go Out There Alot With My 240sx And Grand National. Always Had A Nice Time There. Either Way I'm Going To Be There This Friday If Anyone Esle Wants To Go And Park There Car Next To Mines, I'm Cool With It. Laters
