Default 7th Annual DETROIT AUTO SHOW GTG - NAIAS 2014 - January 18

It's that time of year again - time to start planning our 7th annual Detroit Auto Show (North American International Auto Show) get together. We had 36 people attend last year and more have expressed interest for this year... let's see if we can get it over 40!

Be sure to bring your snow tires and winter clothing - guaranteed to be nice and chilly!

WHEN:
This year's GTG date: Saturday, January 18th, 2014 (first public day of the show). Due to the large number of out-of-towners, the GTG will likely spread to the day before and the day after the show - at least for dinner on Friday night and breakfast at the Bomber on Sunday morning.

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

Included in the auto show activities will be Go Karting at www.kart2kart.com in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

LODGING:
Once again, we will be shacking up 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).

Pricing is the same as last year, at $119/night + tax. We have 15 rooms set aside, so there is guaranteed availability through December 31st. After that, no promises.

CLICK HERE to make your hotel reservation!

The timing of this post is almost as bad as the abhorrent Christmas Creep.
