    Marauderville III was held in August 2005 in Detroit in conjunction with the Woodward Dream Cruise (WDC) that year. I recall about 85-100 MMs in attendance.

    The folks in Detroit used to hold a regular gathering at Capers Restaurant on a fairly regular basis that would draw many of their local members out. Not sure what is happening now.

    I've met with Pops a few times over the years and a few other guys in South Haven/ Saugatuck. Went to MVIII as well, Maybe you'd get more info on the Motor city board.

    We should try to do the cruise again this year that we did at MVX and get a Gingerman test and tune in as well

    A small group from MCM tried to set up a get together last year or so but it fell apart and never happened. The BIG deal is the Woodward Dream Cruise where they get a good portion of a Burger King lot on Woodward and sell spots for at or about $100.00. A good group of guys with more than a few Trilogy Marauders. Covered seating right on the curb and free food last year. You're a good mixer and would love it!

    Yes, but the price is not worth it in my mind. I could have parked along Woodward just about anywhere for around 20 bucks. Food? I got no food, and in all honesty I was not received by everyone as I thought I would be. Mike was very gracious but I knew nothing of food nor did I feel I was allowed to be under the awning.

    If I'm still working in Hammond around that time, I'd head over for the Round Up again in a heartbeat!

    I am sorry to hear of this, as it should not be that way.

    When you are heading home after Louisville, I want nothing more than for you to look forward to the following year.

    And to feel a little sad while driving, yet with a smile on your face, for the entire trip.

    Every year, I have been blessed with a successful meet, and I continue to work my ass off in keeping that streak moving forward.

    We'll hoist many beers at Louisville, after we shake hands.



    Mike.

    I've been to Woodward every year since MVIII. We visit family nearby. I don't see many Marauders... if any at the BK but I don't stay there through the evening. Ran into a friendly face (former CAM member) 2-3 years ago.....

    Lidio usually has a Dyno Day in the spring, sometime around April, right here in Michigan. Been going to them the last two years and haven't seen another Marauder.

    A meet does sound like a good idea.

    Mike.

    From what I read and what others tell me your efforts are greatly appreciated and respected. Yes, we will hoist many a drink this spring! I am so looking forward to it, I love the city of Louisville, have stopped there many times on my way South.

    Its hard to always one up yourself, my wife and I put on motocross parties at our house for a few years. About 150 or so people would come out to ride our track and party...we kept one upping ourselves till we heard one or two people bitching... F it, its not worth the weeks and weeks of prep and the $$$ we would invest.

    So to you I say, THANK YOU, for your efforts even though I have not been to one yet. Can't wait!!!!!!

    You might just need to set something up yourself and see what happens. It's not hard to set something up at a restaurant. You just need to let the manager know if it's a small place.

    We do Fuddruckers in NJ because the food is halfway decent and there is a lot of seating and parking. I don't call ahead or anything. I do though set the meet for just after the lunch rush but I don't think high noon would be a particular problem.

    It's a good idea to pick a place that is convenient for as many people as possible so a central local is optimal. If you can try the food first if it's not a chain restaurant and make sure there is plenty of parking away from where the masses park.

    Make sure you give plenty of notice and if there are other forums in your area invite them as well. We usually get some of the CVN and UPOA crowd and all are welcome.
