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.

5000 Mile round trip. And there is a possibility, my 3rd Cruze, which now has 51,000 miles, may not even be in my driveway, by then. Hard to believe Ive put 150K on Cruzes since 2012. Looking forward to a loaded 2016 in Silver. I need to decide on the drive. 5K is a lot of driving for an event.

OK - you guys convinced me. I-80 all the way or I-70 through Kansas. I think I'd rather pay the tolls than drive through Kansas again. Nebraska is actually somewhat interesting.
Talked to Sherri - I-80 it is. She and I agree that Kansas is best driven at red-line in 6th gear. I somehow don't think the KSP will allow me to do that so Nebraska here we come.

Unfortunately, I got pulled over in Colby just outside of the state line, and I was offered to either pay the ticket right then, or take the citation, come back and appear in court.

Um copper type dude, Im from Virginia, Im going to California, and I have both licenses, so how about I give you the license that expires, next year, and you give me that citation, I'll be right back to appear. Hopefully this guy hasn't been sitting at the court house, the past 21 years, waiting for me to show. :iroc-cop:

So, needless to say, Ill be avoiding Kansas on the drive to Lordstown.

I'm in. Hopefully with +1 and tribble. The small one is now a cat toy. :) I guess I need to go get the lumbar support installed or my wife will insist we bring her Toyota. :) For anyone interested we'll most likely be staying in the Country Inn & Suites next to the Best Western.
So the lumbar support installation passed end user testing. We'll be in the Cruze. :)

Do you guys make hotel reservations of is that up to us?
Up to you, but with the assistance of one of the locals striking up a deal and securing a block of rooms and a cut off date for the deal. Plenty of time to put $'s aside a month to cover the rooms, toll & gas. Just be mindful of the Troopers and you should be fine.

Me too.

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?
