Peregrine I've watched the events a couple of times at Melrose while my wifey was taking a class in RiverForest. They have a very interesting group of cars that show there.

SVT-SAGE I think you just bring your helmet, and have maybe 20-30$. I'll update this when I get a date.

illinipo Yeah its a good time, theres usually a guy with a porche 918 and another with an old-school Jag, all mixed in with a 500whp Evo and a 600whp Cobra. Theyre a pretty close-knit group and the events are always run smoothly and with a smile. Even my wagon never got a dirty look

Check out Focus Nation too, we have g2g's every once in a while and our central IL contingent is growing rapidly matter fact theres a small g2g in Champaign on March 8th, we will be touring the backroads a bit.

And just to give you an idea of what expect, here are a couple of videos of runs at Route 66...
