Hey everyone. It's been a bit. Roads are really, really straight up here. So I'm going to take a trip back to WI!

I'm looking at my calendar and September is when I'll have the time to come back. I'm going to be doing the Alphabet Soup drive and it'll be on a Sunday morning. But which one? That's where you come in!

I'm not going to come back on the weekend leading up to Labor Day, so don't worry about that. The following three Sundays all look good to me. I'm leaning toward 9/16 as New Glarus has a bunch of events happening on 9/9. Either way, vote for the weeks that work for you and I'll start another thread when the date is picked.

I look forward to seeing you guys again!

I miss the drives... but my schedule is no longer open as it used to be for making these kind of things. (although i still do get out for a spirited run once in a while)

for whatever reason this area has slowly declined in member activity over the last few years.. & a few active members have since left the state :crying:

:crying: All of this makes my heart sad. I was hoping at least one weekend worked for you.

I have noticed this region of the forum has really gotten quiet. My hope is to reach out to those that are new to the area and get them into drives. I know of a couple people who recently purchased, but I’m not sure they’re on this forum. When I schedule the drive, I’ll be posting on FB as well. These drives are always more fun with friends!

I think that may have something to do with it - I see a lot of activity on the midwest lotus FB page, I bet you'd have better luck wrangling folks there.

Also, I miss the WI crew as well :|

I’m sorry that any Sunday doesn’t work for you. With where I live, my work schedule, and best times to go for a ride, Sunday’s are really my only opportunity. If you’d like to schedule a drive another day, feel free to PM me and I’ll send you the routes I have!

Assuming I can get my car back together by then, I'd be in for whatever sunday you decide. Still waiting on parts from UK, but hopefully will be here soon(knock on wood).

I am currently sports car-less, but should be up for some drives some time next spring.
Wow, moved on from the AM already? I kind of liked that one. Anything fun on the horizon?

Also trying to bump this thread. So far no one but me voted for a date! Keep in mind you can vote for multiple selections. If there isn’t a preference at all, I’m going to target 9/16.

Time flies--I actually had the Aston for over two years. Yes, something else is on the horizon but not until next spring.

There doesn't seem to be any really strong desire for one date over another. I'll be setting up the drive for 9/16 because it works best for my schedule and I can hit up the Waukesha cars and coffee that morning too.

Hi Guys. We have family in town that weekend otherwise I'd totally be in. I hope that you guys have a great time, and maybe do a Spring run next year.
