admin edit: poll is done, meet location is now Durand MI 6/2/12.
With over 30 different people voting for the winning choice, Durand Michigan on 6/2/12 is the date of the meet. Haven't had a Michigan meet organized for this site before, but it's about time we try it and see how it goes. Use this thread for setting up carpooling, or PM another member that you know is going. I'd imagine people will be showing up shortly after sunrise, and a few will stay after sunset. I'll try my best to be there from sun up till sun down.
For those that haven't gone to these meets before, it's very informal; just hang out, watch trains, chit-chat, and head to the bar if you care to.
Alrighty, time to get voting on when and where to have the spring meet. Here's what I've came up with as some possibilities based on TW's unofficial poll. Poll will run until 4/14 at 2:28pm. Weekend of May 19th is Durand RR days, 26th is Memorial day weekend which is typically slow, and June 17 is fathers day weekend, but the 16th would be the day of the meet. This is a one day meet, but as usual, feel free to come earlier and stay later if you'd like to. I understand Durand isn't the haven for train activity, but since we've never had a Michigan meet, it's on the table. Chesterton is also a new location but might be a bit far for most, but left the option up as it was #2 on the poll. Don't worry, fall meet will likely be somewhere in Ohio for those in that viewing area.
Please vote for any of these possibilities that would work for you, up to 6 votes allowed, and revoting is turned on in case you need to revote.
