Date and Time
May 20th and 21st, 2016


Location
Warren, OH at the Lordstown Cruze Assembly Plant


Age Limit
Age limit to enter the plant will be at least 10 years old.


What to Bring

  • Money for Food the night before the meet, the night of the meet, and if you are staying, the night after the meet
  • Cash for tolls. Some of the driving to the plant will likely be on the turnpike, so bring some extra cash for that.
  • Money for a car wash. It's a car meet; you'll want those bugs off your front end and your car looking presentable.
  • Comfortable, flat-bottomed, closed-toed shoes.
  • A printed map from the hotel to the Lordstown plant, a GPS, or a GPS-enabled smartphone.
  • My phone number in your phone. I will send this out in a mass e-mail before the meet.
  • Cash for food vendors at the auto show.

Hotel Accommodations
http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/18-e...59785-lordstown-2016-hotel-accomodations.html


Rules and Disclaimers
Since there are more people going than there were last year, this section has become necessary. Consider this the "fine print." This will probably not apply to anyone, but I'm including it to cover my ass.

  1. We are adults, so at the meet, act like an adult. This wasn't a problem last year, but I feel that it is worth mentioning. Do not pick a fight with someone, do not pull a stupid stunt that gets you and/or someone else in trouble, etc. Use some sense and it will be an awesome meet.
  2. The CruzeTalk staff reserves the right to remove you from the list. Since we will likely have a limited number of slots due to tour size limitations (we split up the group in two last time even), do not be that guy who shows up uninvited. If you are banned from CruzeTalk, you aren't getting a slot. If were banned or received an infraction in the last 3 months, you may not be given a slot. I don't expect this to be a problem, but it is worth mentioning nonetheless.
  3. When we travel from the hotel to the plant and anywhere else we go as a group, please don't be "that guy" who gets himself lost by going the wrong way. Do not try to race on the highway, do not get "out of formation" unless you are a designated photographer. I'm not trying to be a hard ass here, but with a group of 40 cars, it will all be a lot easier if we all stick together, and the pictures and videos will turn out a lot better if we all stick to the same formation. While traveling, we will have our hazard lights on so we know where we are. We will designate one driver up front and one driver in the back, who will be communicating to make sure we have everyone together.
  4. Slots are first come, first serve. You will be required to respond to roll calls in a timely fashion to keep your slot. Due to the high interest in this meet, we will most likely not have any reserve slots available.

I'm in plus one and maybe one service dog.

Since it will be three days this time, can we look towards planning an event for the ladies? Maybe shopping or makeovers Ohio style?

Not sure if I can make it. It is too far out to plan for. Right now facing a potential work stoppage and have been told can not plan/schedule Vacation time beginning August 1 though the month of December. I lived through one that went 5 months. I was told one went on for 8 months. We will see as the time gets closer.
Dang blk88verde you've got to work some magic. I can't be the only old guy going to both Watkins Glen and Lordstown in 2016!

Love to get my better half to come but 99% of her business is on Fridays and Saturdays(she does nails) and she is not remotely interested in cars much less a long road trip. So....... It will just be me.
Why not suggest that she come and do the spouses' nails?

God knows it would be a great bonding experience for the wives and new business for your wife.

I agree on the bonding, however I don't know about the new business. She won't have her nail table, polish and "tools/supplies" to carry with us, and I don't think many would willing to drive all the way to Cincinnati for a "mani" or a "pedi". Unless somehow I can talk her into moving to a new location(she would kill me with all the snow up there and I thought I heard enough when it got cold for the first time in Cincinnati after moving here from Vietnam). I wouldn't mind finding a new job myself. I will mention it to her!
Why not suggest it to her anyways.

My wife is a retired hairdresser. She may wish to do some blow dries for the ladies if your wife wants to set up shop in one of the hotel rooms.

I've updated the RSVP list. 69 members so far. Some time this week, I'll start getting a plan together for what we'll need and what tasks we'll need to take care of.
Not to whine Xtreme - but you've never included me from my above post of June 17, 2015.

Wanting to look into Hotel's in the Lordstown area for the meet, any suggestions???
In the past we've had an official hotel with a very attractive rate. But I'm not sure if anyone's negotiated arrangements yet.

OK, so I'll be +3 and jxski07. I was actually +5 8/9. 2 & 8/9 have decided that 8/9 is too close to 2 & 9/9 (due in June).

obermd+5 => obermd+3

I believe jxski07 will still be there - he really needs the time off.
Brian - have you been hacking into ober's account again?

Update - it will be just Sherri & I for Lordstown. jxski07 won't be able to make it either.
You both were sorely missed last year.

:sad010: Probably too much going on.
The union locals have been very generous in the past and I'm guessing that there's just too many folks coming from all around this year beyond just us CruzeTalk folks.

Sorry folks - but I'm officially out as well this year.

It will be one for the record books with the plant celebrating its anniversary. Enjoy yourselves and bask in the glow of being with like minded people from all over the continent.

I'll be reading your updates live from home and will share the experience with you through the miracle that is the Internet.

No, and it's never too late. This year, there isn't that much of a point in even checking since GM isn't catering lunch for us like they did the last few years. The main reason was to let them know how many to expect. You want in?



It happens every year. The closer we get, the more people find out they have conflicting plans that take priority. It is what it is. We will still have a ton of people there.
Just a quick clarification that it was the two union locals that graciously hosted lunch for us in 2014 and 2015 and not GM.

So I just got an e-mail informing me that my company is no longer accepting vacation requests for the period of May 1 thru June 30. That pretty much will be keeping me from attending, unless a settlement is reached before the Lordstown event takes place. Yesterday afternoon the company I work for put a final best offer on the table - this morning the union promptly rejected the offer.
Sad it came to this. When leaving Syracuse a few weeks ago I saw the picket lines. No fun walking the line after a couple of weeks.
