May is good:
1. car ought to be running reliably by then?
2. aforementioned temps (I'm hardtop or no top)

Sunday's are bad unless you happen to avoid the MSCC schedule.

Ok, if we are trying to accomodate JT and do something in May, and if we are avoiding both Madison Sports Car Club and Windy City Miata Club events, the following days work best:

5/11, or 5/18

Can everyone try and block off BOTH days and we try for the first day and keep the second as a rain date? If it rains both days we can either try later in the year or run in the rain. I am sure will have a better time if it is dry though.

How do those dates work for everyone?

If you head to western Il or eastern Iowa I would be interested in meeting up for a cruise.

We are about a month out. I will be making a new thread with the dates in the title shortly. May 11th is our primary date with May 18 being our rain day if the 11th is nasty out weather wise. Write it down and I will give more info shortly.

May 11th is Mother's Day and my mom's birthday, so I may have family stuff going on... but I might be able to get away for a few hours.

Oooh... good point. Maybe we should move it to 18th and just look for another date later in the year if bad weather? Thoughts?

My main problem is that the summer is when all the autocross stuff really heats up. We might be stuck going May 18 or September something...

Hoping:
1. My car runs long before then
2. The freaking salt is gone. They just put more out here over the last two days.

It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Friday. I can't imagine much salt remains if we get a good soaking. Then again, it could snow again... <shudder>

I am interested in going.

JT, some friends and I have a route out in the mount horeb area that we cruise quite often. You are more than welcome to join us.

THE CAR ******* RUNS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOooooooooo. Drives, who knows.

I've been on that Mount Horeb route and watched a Miata go down an embankment. It made me seriously reconsider going on "cruises". Maybe, though.

subed
keep'in myself in the loop. I hope something works in the schedule.

I just got back from Wisconson, where the Fuelfed guys did their TFD2014. (The First Drive) About 20 cars, Jag E-Type, 2 Maserati powered Citroens, a raft of Porsches, from purpose built track-cars to Carrera 4S, Carrera 2. I brought the rice!
Broke into 4 run groups of 5 cars based on skill level. It was pretty intense at times. I chased down a couple of the Carrera's and at the next stage/gas stop it was fun to see their face, and the "what the hell you got in there?" (Twin Scroll out of an Evo 8) I'm super happy with the power band now.
