What sort of meets do we want this season?


For Chicago, I'd like a meet at Labagh Woods, then a few min cruise to Montrose Harbor to shoot. Any warm month is fine.





Quintin suggested another CPC x GLA type of meet, but I'm not too sure about that yet with the permit business and all.



Possibly another Michigan City, IN meet as well during the summer.


Also, there is a chance that Import Alliance may be in Indy this year, because they were having some issues with the Nashville, TN location.





^ Indy guys obviously are gonna rep at the Tru Mototsports meets almost every summer Friday night in Indy. Chicago guys are welcomed to join them.

I'm in and I'm sure the prelude guys are down but I know a lot of the cpc guys don't even go on the site anymore due to the admin hatting on the whole "stance" fad.

I'm down for anything, anywhere, anytime!





(As long as I have my Accord and I don't have to work Rolling Eyes )






Mainly down for Michigan City, anything in Chicago, and of course anything Indy related. Im going to Import Alliance Summer Meet no matter where it is. If it's all the way in Atlanta, I'll be there.

If you attend Import Alliance once, you will never doubt yourself again and will find yourself going every year. That's what someone told me before I attended it and it is 110% true.

If you're leery on spending money on gas or even a hotel, its not that much at all. For the entire weekend (4 days) I maybe spent $200. We drive Accords for heavens sake that get 25-32 MPG highway, so two tanks of gas and you're good for the entire roundtrip. A hotel split 3-4 ways will be right around $100 for three nights, even less if you only stay two nights or have more people. In my eyes, spending $200 on one of the best weekends you will ever experience is better than buying a $200 car part.

I understand if you cannot afford it, but with it being 6 months away....putting $10 aside every week will be more than enough for IA. Something to think about. We need more Accords to roll out with us. I almost hope its not in Indiana. The drive to IA is the best part, followed second by the hotel experience. If its here, we won't have either.

Hopefully we can bring more Accords with us this time. Dylan and myself were the only GLA members to make the journey last year.

If IA is in Atlanta, From Indy Thats almost 600 more miles round trip. 2 more tanks of gas, another 10 extra hours of driving round trip..

From Indy to Atlanta is 9 hour drive. Indy to tennesee is doable in a day but not many people can make a 9 hour drive in one straight shot, so possibly add in 2 more nights of hotel rooms and more time off needed for the drive..

thats $400-$500 round trip and 4 days off work.. I know I dont have that kind time of money lol.. So im out..

Summer import alliance will not be in Atlanta. I was just giving a scenario that en if it was, I would still go.

Itll most likely be Kentucky or elsewhere in Tennessee

I love how people think IA is a break the bank situation. It's really not...

You have more than 5 months. Anyways, Im done with the whole "go to IA" rant.

Ohhhh, I see how it is. Gotta bring along the girl on the trip, so that easily doubles everything.

Unless she is super super into cars, car people, being around cars, driving in cars, sitting and looking at cars, and taking pictures of cars, I would not consider bringing her.

As far as cost, here is the break down for a single person. (Costs based off of Nashville location):

Gas: $75
Hotel for 3 nights, with 3 people: $100
Food: $30
Entrance fee: $10 for 2 day pass

That's basically it. If you have someone ride with you (other than old girl) have them split gas and hotel costs. Or if you're really down to save money, get a hotel and stash like 6 people in one room. $50 for 3 nights lol

Staying Friday night is a must, as well as Saturday night. Sunday night, however, is just for convenience. You could get away with only 2 nights nd leave for home Sunday afternoon.

So, like I said, $200ish. Bringing a girlfriend who you would probably pay for changes the entire game though.

If you spend more than $10 a day on food....especially with as many activities as Import Alliance has to offer, theres something wrong.



The hotel breakdown was based off of 3 people in one room for 3 days. Basically the hotel charged $100 a day. Simple math divides 3 days by 3 people out to $100 each person. It had two large beds, a balcony, nice bathroom, LCD Tv, free breakfast every day (look back at that $10 a day food allowance Rolling Eyes ), and a pool. Im sure you could find a cheaper hotel, but we stayed at the premier hotel for IA where 90% of the nicest cars were at.


As soon as they announce a location and date, I think we are booking the hotel. They fill up months before IA actually takes place

IL Accords need to have a meet at Axehead Lake (location of previous Accord meets before GLA).
