Hey midwest area Lotus owners, WI/CHI owners especially, I would like to invite you guys to my 8th annual meet!

The gist is you basically show up anytime around 11am and stay to talk about cars, eat free food, drink free beer, play some cornhole in a tournament, and if you feel like it spend some money on the raffle for prizes. We generally disband around 5-6 o'clock, with dinner optional for anyone that wants to stay later (short cruise to a local resturant).

Its geared towards Wisconsin SRTs, as I started this as a teenager with my SRT-4. Most attendee's will also have an SRT-4, but don't let that scare you off, we are NOT your typical dousche bag SRT-4 owners, I promise! I recently bought a Viper so we're hoping to have a sizeable snake pit too. I'm hoping to get 5-6+ LotusTalk members there, and if we do I'll try and get some Lotus themed stuff for the raffle. I know many of the WISRTS guys have respet for the Lotus cars.

Thanks, hope to see you there!

-Greg


TL : DR - Free beer if you hang out with some Chrysler Group guys!

Thanks for the invite!

We'll be there with the Club Racer.
We might also be able to get other Green Bay area cars down there as well, a Viper and some Triumph's.
Regards,
Gary and Nancy

Awesome! I sold a Triumph motorcycle to buy the Viper. I know the cars and the bikes aren't exactly the same per se but after owning the Daytona 675 I've grown to like the cars too!

The engine is fantastic! My SRT-4 has 135k on it, still burns tires like a champ. The trans isn't as great, but that also has gone 135k and hasn't left me stranded...

Caravaning would also ensure you are parked near each other!

Who is your friend? I might know him.


I'm learning quickly that, chances are, he's heard of the meet! I'm meeting a lot of people with the purchase of my Viper, and probably majority of them have heard about it from one way or another. Its fascinating to me, how this meet has grown. It's a monster of its own in the SRT community in WI, whenever a new member joins the wisrts.com boards I'm never even the first one to invite them to my own meet! Haha!

As coincidence would have it, I have heard of Branden and his blue SRT-4 for the second day in a row now and I don't think I know him.

From what I hear he isn't very stock (if its the same guy)

Either way, glad to hear you're going to make it out!

Got a Triumph show with her Stag. She's the eventmaster, so if I don't show, she'll probably kill me in her sleep.
