I know how impossible it is to even get a cruise night organized...

What do you guys think of this? Is it even possible? Maybe get groups of guys from major areas, we have 4 in Glasgow, maybe 4 from Billings, 4 from Helena, 4 from Great Falls. It sounds impossible, but the humor and pleasure of it could be IMMENSE! Our own version of a Top Gear test / cannoball run / race weekend filled with challenges and your teams crappy car. Smile

I don't know... This is spit balling.

Right now, the inital "guess" is mid September. (this is an example itinerary) Friday, 360-400 mile cruise to get to Helena (fill up when you get there, see who got best mileage) Then SCCA in Helena saturday morning, and cruise that night to Billings on Sunday for the drags, drive home.

Take over some hotel parking lots, get some stuff cooking on the grill, and turn up the music each night. Laugh about who's junk broke down and needs trailered home.

I popped around town today seeing if there was interest. I think I can get 10-12 cars out of Glasgow. People are tired of car shows and lame cruises to places they don't care about.

SO MANY better stories to be had with this idea than just sitting around getting old talking about somebody "ELSE'S car" you saw at a car show. Screw that guy, were gonna maybe put on 1000 miles and race every day. (you don't have to go hard). just be a part of the spectacle.

We'll see. Just trying to pick ideas and direction for the ideas.

Maybe for you Helena guys, to get the Friday miles in, you cruise east to Harlowtown, head north to Lewistown and we all start meeting up in force in Great Falls, and roll in to Helena like proper Power tour group, gumball wannabee's that we are!!!! Smile

Just talkin. I'd like to involve more guys, I'd say it's a go for Glasgow. We're gonna start filming builds here in the next few weeks. and by "builds" I mean, meet the guys, and watch most of us change oil.... etc and post that junk on youtube. Wink

Hey Bob,
A few of us usually get together for a couple Beartooth pass trips a year. Depending on what "Group" you go with it can be very fun.. or a glorified car show. I just love going on that trip though. Something else maybe to think about in addition to what you're putting together.

We're still at the "pick a clever name" stage of it. We have interest. We all seem to want car stickers, windshield stickers, like cannonball run stuff. It's the journey more than the actual contest of it. That seems to be the underlying theme, big decals. and the joy of our own thing. but not a cruise. A cruise with a purpose. Smile
