Glenview, IL
I'm posting this here for a friend who couldn't register an account on Prime for some reason. Anyways, I'm gonna try to make it to this cruise...should be a fun time.

The OFFICIAL THREAD FOR THE FOLLOWING INFO IS HERE http://www.exotixboard.com/viewtopic.php?t=420

I am organizing a cruise on April 23, 2005. This cruise will start at noon at the parking lot next to Hooters in Schaumburg, IL. From there until 1:30pm is a chance to get to know some fellow enthusiasts and talk cars and look at them amongst one another. 1:30PM: we will leave to get onto 290 towards Chicago until we hit Lower Wacker Drive. We will take this until the exit to Lake Shore Drive North. From LSD we will go up to Sheridan Road until we get to Dawes Park near Northwestern University. This will be about an hour to take pictures, talk cars some more and hang out with people. After this we will proceed to the boat launch in Highland Park, IL and take pictures there and talk some more, I expect many to leave at this point however, there are many places to grab some food in Highland Park and I myself will be finding a place to go eat with several people.
(Same route as the previous "Massive Chicago GTG set up by Warrior1986") For those of you that do not know, I am the guy that was riding with Warrior this past saturday maning the camera.

Don't come if you plan on racing everyone who comes to this, it's a CRUISE not a race, it's intent is for everyone to meet new people and make new friends with people who like cars.

This is just the basic route, I will be attempting to make arrangements to eat somewhere(Come early to Hooters if you're hungry) but I need to know how many people are interested. I'm very open to suggestion at this point so feel free to contact me.

Bring a Full tank of gas, a camera or video camcorder, and a two way radio if you have one. I reccomend the Cobra PR4300 Found Here Laser Detectors and some extra cash are also reccomended.

I will be making a printout with directions and the full route with exits to take within the next day or two, I will be bringing some to the get together in case you can not or forgot to print one out.

If you will be going for sure please reply to this post or Email me with the following information:
Your Name(just first is OK)
Your car's Year, Color, Make and Model
Whether or not you have a radar detector
Whether or not you have a Two Way radio (FMRS/GMRS, such as a talkabout)
Whether or not you want your email adress posted by me.
(any additional questions or concerns will not be posted)

I will post this so others can get to know you beforehand.

Any Suggestions, Comments, or Questions? Email me at [email protected] , I check my email several times a day and will get back to you promptly. You can also contact me via AIM my SN is EricMSehner. My main concern is that everyone has a great time and no one gets in trouble with the law. (however, this is your responsibility and is in your control)

Probably because his e-mail address is from one of those free providers, like hotmail.com Because it's too easy to set up aliases, those domains are banned from registering here.
