When is the last time anyone in the SW has been to the Grand Canyon? Meet at the Grand Canyon Inn. Just a thought.

Anymore thoughts on this? If we were still gonna try and plan our own event, would something in late March or early April be of any interest? The event in Salt Lake is a bit of a stretch for me so I would be interested in something a little closer. There was some talk about planning something in Vegas.

BTW, this is the first time I have even seen this thread!? Guess I wasn't paying much attention! :doh:

i just did my 21st in vegas a few weeks ago. good stuff. :lol4:

i'm still down for all of this to happen, would prefer vegas ( cuz its closer and i'd have free room) i'd almost say later on in the spring would be better only cuz we'd have nicer weather. its freaking chilly willy right now.

I'm at Grand Canyon. Anyone interested in a get together here please PM me so I can have a head count. Please post interest here also, so the rest of the club can know. I can see what I can do for a group discount on lodging. Pretty sure I have a few people I can hit up for discount rates. I could also get a group campsite if it looks like it can come together closer to warm weather. I need to go and read P2-5.

I just read pg 2-5. I'm in for anything that could work for me. I am still more than willing to do what I can to get arrangements made for the Canyon. I can say it won't be like a wild Vegas trip or the Drag strip. This is really a nice place to get off to, though. Besides you will have a guide that has been here for 7yrs now. I'm game for anything I can get a day off for. I hope we get something going on soon enough to make plans for. Got some family $h1t coming up soon.

Nice, warm weather here in Arizona... Compared to the rest of the country, anyway.
I think we should try to make this our GTG event.

It's far enough in advance to get Vacation, no real prep work to be done, It'll probably have Magazine coverage, if that's your thing. It's not Vegas, but then again, we can always do Vegas at the end of the year... :party018:



Any thoughts?

I'm going either way, so it's up to the rest of you.

15 Years of May Madness.

I'm not trying to promote May Madness even though I've mentioned it in the past, in this thread. There are a lot of good ideas being "tossed into the hat", here.

For those that are serious about starting up your own event, you might want to attend this years May Madness. These folks have 15 years of experience setting up a diesel event in the Southwest. They do a good job & it draws people from all over the country. There are even two couples that tow their fifth-wheels from Maryland, each year.

Again, I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do but, one couldn't help but learn from these folks & their vast experiences in this area.

May Madness seems to have an appeal to all ages, interests & financial backgrounds. Those of us that are a bit older are more interested in towing performance. Many of the younger folks are more interested in drag racing & dyno's (although, the older folks seem to like the dyno's, as well). I've seen folks that are financially well-off, and, last year, there was a Marine that drove his first-gen. & slept in the bed of the truck, snuggled up next to his shotgun (not that he needed it with this group).

May Madness is a good time, for all &, a great opportunity to learn how to set up a successful, big-time, diesel event, if that's what you're interested in.

I don't see a "Home Page" for May Madness but, you should be able to get information from Turbodieselregister.com (who is a sponsor of the event) or questions can be answered by Dr. Joseph Donnelly at [email protected].

So far as I know, this in NOT a Turbo Diesel Register event, ONLY! I believe all diesel enthusiasts are invited.

ATS Diesel, out of Arvada, Co. brings Chevy's, Ford's & Dodges to the event.

You could do a search at the TDR on previous May Madness's & find out what those that have attended have to say about the event. That way, you're not just taking my word for it.

Ok I heard back from Eric Mcbride.
Evidently, they moved the event from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City, and have no plans in changing that, because attendance is better there.

I'm thinking we would be better off picking a weekend that has a Friday night test and tune, and just see if maybe we can set up our own events for this.

I'll step back now and let the Presidents and Vice Presidents work it out.

They should really be the ones who take the reins on this anyway. I don't want to be meddling in anyone's affairs.

Thanks.
that dont know if im confused
