Just wondered if I could get a count of people who might be willing to drive to Cleveland for a meet at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in October??

If I have my RL by then, I'll be there! I'm in Columbus, so that's an easy trip! I am still trying to work a deal. There are 10 dealers within 50 miles of me but they won't deal as much as other dealers. I may just go out of state to buy mine. The funny thing is the guy I know who is the Internet Man for my closest dealership has sold only ONE RL since February. I can get one for $1000 over Invoice from him, but my checkbook won't open until it is at or below invoice. You would think that they would want to move them since he admitted they aren't selling well here.

Oh well...in March, they wanted MSRP and loaded them up with overpriced accessories. In May, MSRP w/no accessories. In June, $1500 over Invoice and now, $1000 over Invoice. In another month or two, I'll have them right where I want them...LOL :D

Hmm, October is going to be difficult. We're going to all computerized records and that will be during our go-live so I won't be able to get time off. It's a fairly significant drive from MN to OH...

Let me know when, and my hubby and I will try to make it :)

I have contacted the Rock Hall and threw as much charm as I could muster up at them to try and get them to sponsor us. I am awaiting their decision. Maybe I can petition the Honda Dealers in the area minus one :eek: to help sponsor as well. Ticket prices are $20.00 and there are loads of hotels and places to visit and things to do here. ( we are the mistake on the lake no longer ) :rolleyes:
I'll keep you posted and as long as I see some real interest, I'll work as hard as I can to get someone to foot the entire bill. Maybe Honda????? :D
ARE YOU LISTENING HONDA!!?? WHAT BETTER PLACE TO ADVERTISE THE ROC @ THE ROCK???
Oh cool.

I'm interested in a Cleveland Meet. I am in Pittsburgh about 2 hours away. I am waiting on delivery of Silver Ridgeline.

Cleveland? Where is that? ;).

Sorry famiy in Pitt and they tell me that Cleveland isn't cool ;-), must be a Stealer/Brown thing or something. By October I will be down to 5 days left of vaction time and 6 days planned so it probably won't happen, but we shall see. The Hall may be a good inducement for my wife although it would be easier if it was the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Hey, LR, terrible month for me. I'll be in Calif./Nevada on business and vacation trip from October 6-22. May be able to come out on the 1st or last weekend, but that would be it for me. Really not that long of a drive for me. :)

Cleveland in October - Ok, so, it doesn't quite fit w/ what I was thinking of surprising my wife w/ as far as a trip in the fall goes, but it could work! The first weekend of Nov might work better.

Short trip for me & family to Cleveland - and we have said we want to see the R&RHoF.

You'll recognize me immediately - Silver Ridgeline (didn't want to wait 7 weeks for the blue, and my dealership had tricked out all the rest of the RL's) - my OH license plate is: RIDGELN (I keep meaning to take a pic and have it as part of my signature...)

Next year we ought to try to get the group together in Marysville, OH (Home of the American Honda facilities) and get a tour of one of their assembly lines [cars, engines, or motorcycles] - or the R&D dept where our trucks were designed.

Hi ridgeln,
I think I am leaning toward the first of November for many reasons. But I do want to avoid the snow if I can. Besides, Honda loved testing the Ridgeline here in February. They didn't need to make pretend ice and snow for the demo. We had plenty. :)
So....let's shoot for November 5, 2005 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I will make the arrangements if I can get enough interest. TMac and zero, please try and come. :D
Next year at Marysville would be awesome. I still have friends at Honda and I am sure I can get assistance.
Please email me at jccampbell@cdcgraphics.com and tell me yes and how many. I'll go from there. Friends, family, kids, dogs, better-halves, etc )
Also...I have a friend who owns a CR-V, ( at least its a Honda ) and he owns a T-shirt business. I have discussed with him about making t-shirts for this event ( kids and adults ) and he said, "COOL" let me know what you need. ( low cost ) I plan to make commemorative key chains and decals for the event. ( no charge ) Not to mention a visit to the FINE city of Cleveland. ( it may surprise you )
If JMT can come from Texas, well...you know the rest.
( now you can come hagerswami )
See you soon I hope.
Don't forget about August 14th and Toys for Tots too!! U-H and Nicholas are coming.

The Art Museum in Milwaukee would be neat to see when the roof louvers open up.
