After seeing poor souls and slim get picked on for being fat, I'm not meeting anyone till I drop 100 pounds.

I think it might be best to divide and conquer. I agree with your comment regarding people barking about location. You certainly cannot please everybody. I did four or five track days last year and most people just barked about what track I chose.

So maybe, for now, some more northern meet ups and separate southern meet ups?

We also did some CMC meets in St Charles a few times, which worked out pretty well for both crowds.

K1 would be a fun one, and it's in Addison.

My only advice to newbies is to just fucking sack up and show up. Only way you're going to be apart of the fam.

As for the old inside jokes and shit, who cares, it's about good company.

You're never going to make everyone happy with time, date and location. Pick a reasonable amount of all three and set it up.

I believe that most (or all?) of this was me and don't worry I'm done with it.

Can I bitch about how I showed up and had to hang out with all the up north fags?

In all seriousness I appreciate the effort put forth to set this stuff up. Would love another trip to Aurora as my mug is getting dusty.

The problem is when even the current members dont feel welcome at meets because the 'core' people or old timers still only talk to each other and dont talk to the people they dont know.

which is why i suggest doing something more than only sitting at a table and having food. People will be broken into smaller groups and have a chance to socialize

You know what would be cool, a TCG trivia night. We could definitely get a private room at a bar or restaurant, make up some automotive theme trivia questions and get a buy in for a few bucks to put up some prizes

I didn't even make it to Chubbys and it's 10 min from my house. Going somewhere an hour away once a month is one thing. But going every week is probably what turned people away. That place was far from everyone.
