Sure, will do! Let me know what I can do. I know of a couple forums I could post on. We could make it a CRXCommunity.com sponsored meet to spread the word!

Mar 19th post...I guess no meet?
To be honest, the "CRX only" scene has been dead the last couple years. Michelle Skibitzki, Ricky Crow et al organized several good meets from 1999-2002ish. Then they started sucking. A couple reasons I wanted to quit going...
1. The "spring" meet didn't happen until typically the end of May. That's more like a summer meet. And standing around in a parking lot, or even park(with no real trees), in the Texas summer heat for half a day is asking for misery. The justification for this was to let students who called Texas home, but were away for school, participate. My response to that is what about the CRX owners/students that were here for school but went home to somewhere else for the summer? Central Texas is home to several universities....this just didn't make any sense. Meets should have been held sometime in March.
2. Low turnout, the same few faces. The same few people doing all the work.
3. Stagnation. Same meet format everytime. A few innovations were added but too little too late.
4. Level of car quality steadily dropped. And to a certain degree, the "quality" of owner.

I don't think there's been any kind of meet for over a year now.

So lets start small. I think a good format would be to arrange a group dinner someplace, hit the drag strip in Killeen or San Antonio and then roll to wherever the Saturday night hot spot currently is (Vans?).

grouch makes some very good observations.

I am up for a CRX meet in Texas especially if some of the oldtimers like me are there. Those that are buying rexes now seem to be in it just to drive them into the ground.

I still want a Bigass Hill Country Drive.

Anyone else think this thread is dead?

The car forum I post on had a crx meet about a couple years ago and it was around a 10-13 car turn out. Wasnt bad.

I like the idea of a dinner but since there are so little people who can make time off, or have the will to drive far - I dont see it happening until next summer.

Anyone still up for this?

Grouch, do I know you? Well, you hit the nail squarely on the head. I am one of those old-timers you speak of (aka GumbyCRX). It's a huge undertaking to setup, schedule and facilitate an event, and I thank those that did their parts to make those events happen.

That was then, this is now. I'm willing to drive north to Waco, west to Fredricksburg, or even south to San Antone, to spend a day with fellow Rex'rs.

Unfortunately, I am to overloaded to step up an be an organizer, but I would be willing to help.
