Default 5th Annual Central IL Starved Rock Meet

We have been given permission to hold our 5th annual Central IL meet at
MATTHIESSEN STATE PARK
this year.



The parking lot area is much more open, albeit divided; but we will not be in the way of all the locals/visitors as it is a much less visited location. We were here the second year the meet was done and we had much less hassling from the PD. One thing to note however: DO NOT PARK IN THE GRASS! That was the only thing I recall the conservation police being upset about. I made that mistake the second year and they threatened to tow my car, even though I had left to grab lunch in town in another members vehicle. (BTW Thanks to those who moved it!)

Keep in mind that this is a meet at a state park, and conservation cops do not mess around. Please clean up any mess that you leave and be respectful of the park so we can continue this for years to come! NO ASSHATTERY AT THE PARK! Minus the dipshit 240 the first year, this really hasn't been a problem, but again we must be respectful to continue this meet into the future. Anyways, on to the specifics...

WHERE: MATTHIESSEN STATE PARK, UTICA IL
DATE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH
TIME: 11 AM TO 5 PM

Here is an image of the park location in proximity to Starved Rock. It is roughly 3 miles south of Starved Rock and still in very close proximity to the twisties.

IF YOU PLAN TO DRIVE ON THE TWISTIES SCOPE IT OUT FIRST! DONT BE STUPID. AND REMEMBER THIS IS A LOCAL ROAD WITH OTHER CARS ON IT!



Note the meet location highlighted in yellow!

I am again holding a pre-meet cruise to this meet. It will be at the North Aurora automall off of I88 and Orchard Road in North Aurora just as in the years past. This year, however we will be meeting up at the old Dodge dealership instead of the old Saturn dealership that can be seen from Orchard road. The once vacant Saturn dealership is now in use. We won't be seen easily from Orchard road anymore. The location is the vacant parking lot just west of Chrysler/jeep.

Check out this link for directions:

If anyone plans to hold a pre-meet cruise to the meet this year, let me know and I will post up a link and information in this section.

I also plan to hold the Aurora area premeet out to Matthiessen again this year and will be posting up the info at a later date.

Is my old civic sedan still around anymore? I can't for the life of me remember who I sold it to (on here) but I remember it was at the meet last year.

that was me, I sold it to a good buddy of mine. He still has it but has been making plans to sell it soon. I was considering the possibility of buying it back. He may attend the meet as well.

I COULD NOT for the life of me remember if it was you or someone else with a similar name. I never get on here any more. Shame on me I guess.

Anyway, just out of curiosity, what would be the price for a nostalgic previous owner and all around good guy? I am hoping to buy something before winter anyway and it might as well be one of the coolest cars I ever owned.

From him, probably somewhere in the mid-low 3g range. I believe last time I asked that's what he was considering selling it for.

I won't have that by the meet. You should buy it back from him until then... I could probably spring for it before the end of the year.

Wasnt this meet a huge bust last year? I mean cops were just sitting waiting for you to leave to hand out tickets? I went to the meet two years ago and it was sick I want to come down again but I dont want to leave with any tickets.
