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

That would be very cool, but it would be about a 5,000 mile round trip for me, so I don't think it is an option for me.

That sounds like a lot of fun. But for me, it's too far to drive. I'm sure that those who go will have a great time.

Re: Meet in Lansing MI summer 2010

This is my first post even though I have been a member since before I got my 2010 Enclave in October...its funny that someone mentioned going to Lansing, MI and taking a tour of the Delta Township Enclave plant...my husband just mentioned today that he wants to go there this Summer...he is retiring at the end of March and that is one of his trip ideas... Of course June would be good for us or even July but August we are going to my husband's Army reunion in TN...

I'd be up for that! Any time after May 1st... my retirement date! I'm in Ontario- an hour or so from Detroit so it'd be an easy day trip.

Unless something unexpected came up, I'd almost assuredly attend a Delta Twp plant tour.
