Some planning to do...

I will take a look at the general areas in / near Frankenmuth over the Christmas break (Google, not actually go there this time of year!).

Some parking is more on outskirts, but there are some areas I can think of. There is an outdoor mall, the brewery, over at Bronner's, even the Michigan Aviation museum.

I don't want to have to get special civic approval, except maybe touching base with some business owners at the meet up area ahead of time to get their buy in, in exchange for business and advertising if needed?

My very general thoughts were to have a location to park that may get some positive local attention, since it literally a few days after earth day. There is a TON of foot traffic in good weather, lots of shops and restaraunts down the main drag.

If nothing more, Earth Day still gets people at least THINKING about doing something good for the environment (and wallet).

So this would be an example to show people on how to actually DOING, not just SAYING?

Priorities: Have Fun, Meet New People.

Then all the rest has the same importance: Spend Time swapping ideas, test rides, general car nut stuff, getting locals (tourists) to ask questions or at least see the mild to the extreme ecomodding, showing off the basic tools of the trade (grill block, scan gauge, taking weight out of car trunks, PSI, driving styles etc). Did I mention have fun and meet new people?

I have never done this before, so if anyone has suggestions and thoughts on making the most of it, please PM me or post here!

Thanks for your interest!!!
