Meet in Lansing MI summer 2010

OK...here's the big question? How many of you would be interested in having a meet (all Lambda models) in Lansing MI (or nearby area) this summer, 2010? I was wondering also, if it's possible for me to get a tour arranged.....how many would be interested in that? And lastly, if you ARE interested, any input on how we go about getting this arranged? (I can take care of the tour part, I have "connections") I just want to make sure it's worthwile before trying to set it up. Also, would like to know what months people can make it, so if you put down, in a message...it's not part of the poll above....what months will work, we will go from there. Will have to go with the majority, for example, if I only have one person want May, but 10 want June, than the majority vote would have to win, sound fair?

Side note: Yesterday, I ran into a man visiting at our church, who works at the Delta Plant in the testing area. (Boy, I'm sure there's tons of questions people would have for him). I was nice to him, didn't want to get into all the issues people have, because most of that wouldn't apply to what he does. I told him about the forums and about some people having concerns, but didn't get specific. This guy tests the vehicles right after they come off the assembly line...., and has to diagnose/fix any issues, anything from a no start to things concerning fit and finish, etc. Sounds like a fun job, since it's not dealing with customers being unhappy, he's fixing things before they go to the dealer. You would not believe how many things they have to check, and would be surprised to find out they do in fact correct even the simplest of problems before the vehicle leaves the plant. For example, if they see a wire is crimped wrong, where it could be a problem, they fix it. Anyway, this guy is not the one I talk to about tours, but he said the one who I got a tour with last year still works there, and he said they do have large groups come thru sometimes, either a walking tour, or if it's big enough, they have some sort of train thing we can ride in...that would be cool. Last year I just took the walking tour because we had less then 10 people in our group. (but I don't know what the cutoff is for a walking tour).

Anyway, share your thoughts, and vote on the poll above, so I can get an idea how many would be interested in a meet.

IMPORTANT: Only vote one time, I will have this on all 4 forums, so only vote on the forum that IS your vehicle. That way, I can see how many from each vehicle will want to come

Re: Meet in Lansing MI summer 2010

Because I live in MI and it would be easy for me to get there I would be interested in taking a tour, it would be cool. With that being said my vote is yes, however I dont have any input on date, time, how to set up, or whatnot. If this ever comes to fruition and an actual date and time are established I will attend.

As long as the tour isn't on a Sunday, I'd be up for it. Sunday is my day of rest

Re: Meet in Lansing MI summer 2010

Good response so far, glad to hear it! Just to clarify, I don't know for sure the plant will do Saturday tours, I put weekend on there to see how many can only make that for a meet (I know....what would we do besides the tour?....there is still "things" to do in Lansing area, we'll find something...but let's focus on the tour idea for now). If this all works, I'm thinking about a tour on Friday (again, will have to see), then people from out of town would most likely stay over, and then we could have something planned for Saturday (also, for those who can't make it on Friday). Again, this is all just thinking out loud, I know a Saturday tour would be the best, but for some reason I seem to remember they either are not running on Saturdays, or not doing tours then....but I'll find out when it gets closer. Also, not sure about if or when there will be a shutdown, usually in July, but that's all too up in the air, there may not be any shutdown now that they have the Traverse. OH, and if we plan this right, we could get to see 2011's coming down the line. I know when I took the tour last year, the 2010's were coming down the line, and I think it was late May...(will have to go back and check my notes on that...).

Is there a way for people off the mainland to be able to view? Pics are good

Off topic here, Maseacre .... do you recall what the window sticker listed on your family's Traverse for shipping? Was wondering, since you're out there in Paradise.

Re: Meet in Lansing MI summer 2010

I sent an e-mail to the man at the plant who does the tours. I've got a bunch of dates (Fridays and Saturdays) in June, July, and Aug., to run by him. Starting with the dates I could actually go.... ...then we'll see what he has available, then I'll post all available dates here, and put it up for a vote, sound good?

OH, and YES, all significant others would be invited too....but no kids under 12, is their rule....which I know might pose some problems with those traveling from out of town, sorry about that....believe me, I understand any frustration there....I wanted to take my kids last year, but had to get a babysitter.

Just curious as to what shipping charges were to your location.
