Arrow 9th Annual Detroit Auto Show GTG - NAIAS 2016 - January 16 (aka WINTERFEST)

Happy October, everyone! Fall is officially here and it's time to announce our 9th annual (can you believe it's been that long?) Detroit Auto Show get-together!

WHEN:
This year's GTG date: Saturday, January 16th, 2015 (first public day of the show). Due to the large number of out-of-towners who frequent this event, the GTG will start on Friday evening and conclude with breakfast at The Bomber on Sunday morning.

http://naias.com/ for more information on the auto show.

New this year!
  • Rather than going to the usual Kart 2 Kart indoor go karting facility in Sterling Heights, Michigan, I'm exploring going to JD Racing's all-electric indoor go karting facility in Novi, Michigan. This will be confirmed as the event gets closer (perhaps in November).
  • I'm checking to see if The Wurst Bar in Ypsi is available for a group of 30 for dinner on Friday night.

LODGING:
Once again, we will be staying at the Ypsilanti Marriott. It's a 40 minute drive from the COBO Center, it's a great place to stay, and Ypsi is an awesome town with awesome food (and not far from Ann Arbor).

Hotel pricing and more information about booking will be available soon.

What happened with the Karts? Did Kart2Kart's equipment fail emissions tests?

LOL no they didn't fail anything. They kind of botched our final race last year by leaving the karts in "governed" mode for most of the race. When we pointed it out, the staff was uncooperative, so I figured we can give the electrics at JD Karting a shot this year.

Yesterday I had brunch with a friend whose husband is from Michigan, and she was somewhat surprised when I blurted out "I love Michigan, especially in January!" Well, this GTG is why. It's a great time.

I should be there since I missed Fest with the brother and maybe my buddy from last year.

New job has me working a lot and starting to travel some. Also headed out west at the end of January or beginning of February. Going to hold off a bit on survey, etc.

I'm sorry you feel that way. I thought their menu had a reasonable selection of vegetarian options, but I'm not really a qualified judge of that. If you have an alternate suggestion, I'm all ears.
