Who's in? I haven't been to a Mitsubishi meet in over a year :( So let's get one going. I still don't know a great deal of the area so I have no idea where we should hold one, but I can drive almost anywhere. Whether it's a BBQ or just a normal meet & greet. Granted most of you guys know each other anyways, but who cares. So again, who else is interested in getting one going? Especially since it's going to start getting really slow at work i'll be pretty available anytime. My buddy with a talon works weekdays/has weekends off. So let's get some input.

+1 on this would like to see other dsms since in my area I feel like the only dsmer (way too many hondas here and everywhere), would be awesome if we could over 10-15 people with their rides

My friend Christian and I will be at any bbq/meet that is setup. My buddy Eric (who is 98gsdsm on here with the slammed 420) will more then likely show up and he has 2 other eclipse''s he could bring (2gn/t spyder & slammed 3g). So if I can get his group to commit that's 5 alone, you make 6, and i'm hoping this thread will catch some more interest and attention :)

I just got done talking to Eric. He's down for any meet that gets organized and said he has several other mitsubishi's that can tag along with him.

I actually sent him a PM about th maybe a week ago. I honestly don't think he's been on or I think he would have definitely responded to this and a message. He always seems willibg to get a meet going so I figured he'd be my best bet to get something in the works. So until I hear back from him I'm just trying to gather intrest and make the idea aware to everyone!
This needs to happen! Haha

Sorry fellas, I havent been online lately. As 91gsxawd said I've just moved and have been tied up. Although I do have something in the works that I'm sure will be nice. Jdm1990 I just checked your pm and that sounds good, I'll pm you in detail.
Now the good news as of now there are alot of us with fully running cars which is awesome. No bad news really besides there are some not running yet. I would like to give those people time but I dont want this to fall into meet limbo, so how far out should this be set for? 1-2 weeks, more?

I was thinking maybe the 1st weekend in October? I literally just moved aswell so this month is screwed for cash from deposits and everything haha And with the weather somewhat getting cooler, towards the end of the month i'm hoping it'll be a really nice temp for a meet. Also, if you plan for the first week of October it should offer enough time for people to put a request in with their jobs/families. I know not every job is as flexible as mine haha :P
the most important thing I think would be that we need a location! I'm all the way down in Webster, but i'm willing to make a drive. From what i've gathered, most of you guys are all north of me regardless and the people I know that will show to the meet are in the woodlands anyways. All of which are willing to make a reasonable drive.
Any input on a location?

Went to go scout out the location and here are the pics I sent JMarines:

Big parking lot offers plenty of space
555955605561



Covered patio with 14 tables so more than enough room, they also have this huge grill but JMarines has agreed to bring his nicer and more managable pit.
55625563

Park has plenty of nice hills, trees, and plains for great pictures. There is also a large playground for the kids and even a water spout area. What do you think?
So first week in Oct sound good to everyone? Park is less crowded during the week but weekends are doable. Once all details are set I'll make a thread in the Meets section so we have a place to post comments and pics.

Park looks great! During the week is fine with me, I'll check withmy buddys on which weekday in particular would be best. But it eaearly enough that if we get a date set in stone, people can request off.

I'm throwing it out there because it was asked of me the other night, so I kinda just wanted everyone's opinions. The thing with OctoberFIST is that I don't limit it to htown guys, I throw it out there to a lot of friends and customers.

I'm sure everyone would be fine with that. The more people the better, the park meet wont be just Dsms either. Its welcome to all.

Agreed. The park meet would be open to everyone, but I would like to see alot of the members from here attend. Just for the fact that this is the only Houston forum i'm active on, i'd definitely like to put some faces to the names and meet some of you.

Middle to end of October works for me. That will give me time to finish up the minor upgrades to the spyder and get it road worthy again.
