Open to anyone, no initial dues. Lets get a loose committee together to form bylaws. Anyone interested in that shoot me a PM. I'll update everyone as we know more.
Jan 8th I'm leaving for work that day

I'm in mackinaw so I may be able to meet up. Gotta look at my work schedule I know I have the 2nd thru the 6th of January off if someone else has that off. I'm pretty new to this whole thing just got my jeep about 4 months ago. It's not lifted at all but I got me some good ole bf goodrich all-terrains. So if anyone wants to put up with a noob let me know I could sure use some schooling. Thanks!

Okay, Jan 15th or 22nd? Those are both sundays, which people said would work best. Lets get this thing rolling. Buffalo wild wings is easy to find for people who may be from out of town. 2,3, or 4 in the afternoon?

It occured to me that we might have a problem with Wild wings. Its a playoff weekend and depending on the time of the game it might be impossible to get a table. Just something to think about. I can't find the game time yet so we might just want to wait and see what that ends up being.

LOL, that's the house, but that was the previous owner of my house. He did leave me a poster of the tank hanging in the garage though. That was the best part about buying this house. Whenever I give people directions to my hosue I say "the house with the tank" and that's all I have to say!

Been banging my head against the wall trying to think of a good place. What about a place that is more a restaraunt as opposed to a sports bar. Somewhere we could get a good sized table, grab a brew and not have to scream to hear each other? For example, Fridays, Outback, something of that nature. I dunno, just a thought.

Applebee's? Right next to the Mall, probably something that would work.

It's a nice little house. That's the unfortunate thing..."little" It's sitting on a slab so no option of finishing a basement. It's right at 950sqft but it does have an attached garage. Easy remedy for that would be turn garage into family room of some sort and build a nice garage the yard behind the house. 80K seems a little high to me, especially in this market but I'm no expert.

What about our meeting place? Has anyone made a final decision yet?

Hey guys just wanted to let you know that the former jeep club in Bloomington was also called Central Illinois Jeep Club or CIJC. We folded in October of 2007 basically because of bad leadership due to the board being to much into clicks. At one time we were the largest jeep club in the Midwest with over 200 members. A few members of our former board still have a private club that uses this name. There website is cijeep.com. Just trying to give you a heads up on the name and website.

A few other local clubs.

Mijc.org or mid-Illini jeep club in Peoria

Midwestjeepthing.com out of St. Louis (cijc by-laws written from theirs.

80k?? I'm guessing that's why it's been for sale over a year. It would be a nice starter house for a young single guy like myself and hey I've already met the neighbor! Lol
