MidWest G2G-Mt Rushmore? Yellowstone?

How's about a MidWest G2G one of these days?
Looks like there could be some interest.
Clicky

Yellowstone or Mt Rushmore would offer some great photo ops.
Too far for the CO crowd?
I know a certain NM member (above "clicky") said they were up for a road-trip.

Hmmmm.
Lemme check the SCCA Solo2 (AutoCross) schedule in the area too.
They have been known to have events near the IMAX in West Yellowstone.
There's also Billings which isn't that far from Mt Rushmore.

Could you imagine it?
Meet a bunch of new folks, gather a bunch of Foci for some LEGAL racing,
then do some site seeing, pic taking, road-tripping.....

What do ya think?

yellowstone sounds like fun to me and that would be some awesome pics.

it depends on when and other stuff like that, but if i can afford the time off work, and can get it, count me in.

I'd do the mount rushmore if any one would be interested. If it works out that would rock, being from south dakota it gets kinda lonely and no one seems to want any thing to do with a focus out here. It's like I'm stuck in the 1920's out here and I'm the only one who loves this car and the rest act as if it where poison. damn I miss Chicago. Time for a road trip.Lets do it.

Cool!
That's a couple "takers".

I know what you mean!

Hmmm, seeing as I got the post going...
What's everyone's opinion on when to have a G2G?
ShadyR, you're the closest to Mt Rushmore.
What's a good time for scenery?
Spring, Fall?

Yellowstone's always good for scenery!
We make it down there a few times a year, as we always purchase the Nat Parks Pass,
and can get in anywhere.

I would like to go but it depends on when. I need to take off work. This summer some time? I'm going to have my kids this summer, so they would have to come with. My son would get a kick out of a few foci's

i think summer would be the best, july or august?

IMO, yellowstone would be better then mt rushmore. i dont think it would be possible to get a pic with mt rushmore in the background. besides, i just think yellowstone is cooler. but that is just my opinion. sry shady

July or August would be ok for me. MT Rushmore is closer to me and honestly if you don't go in the summer it's just not worth going. South Dakota only has two seasons, winter for 8 months and summer for 4 months. Yellow Stone is a bit of a drive for me but I would go there to. I agree that the photo ops at Y stone would be great and sense I have never been there it would be nice to see. But I just hate to put that many miles on my car. Well I don't know, I guess what ever you guy's would want to do would be ok with me. For sure though count me in for being there. WD40 are you saying that you will cordinate the festivities and pict ops? Between august 1rst and the 9th would be real bad for me. I get married on the 7th of August so please don't put it between those days.

I suppose I wouldn't mind.
Let me put my "orginization" hat on, and come up with a couple polls.
1 for the date, and 1 for the location.

Now that I'm getting involed in AutoCross again, I'll have to work around that schedule.

So, I take it most folks would like to plan around a weekend, correct?
I'm sure most of you are in the same "boat" as me, and need to work for a living.

I vote Rapid City/Mt Ruchmore being it would be about Center of our region.

Well I do have contacts with a photographer/writer for the Rapid paper.

Dates for Autocrosses in Rapid City:
May 9,16 June 20,27 July 11,25 Aug 15,29.
The Black Hills sports car club is a good bunch of people, and hold first class events.

Yeah I was thinking a show and shine at Canyon lake. then cruise Rushmore rd. Tour the hills Hit Rushmore then head over to iron mtn road and up the pig tails. Good photo ops there.

You guys with the euro SVTs better wathc out when we meet you might find yourself with differant rims. I want a set of SVT euros for my wagon.
