Just letting everyone know, there will be a GTG in NW Indiana this summer. July 11th.

Cbfarmall/Chris and myself will be putting it on and it will be at his place which is between Lowell and Hebron IN.

Its only about 4 miles from the intersection of I65 and St Rt 2 and very easy to find. Take Rt 2 east of I65 about one mile then turn south on Clay street and go right at 3 miles and the place is on the west side just before the S curve.


We will have the grill fired up for lunch, probably burgers and hot dogs with chips. If anyone wants to bring a side dish, desserts, or soft drinks, that would be appreciated. Being it's July in NW IN we will have plenty of cold water there.

Also at the corner of I65 and Rt 2 there are a couple large truck stops, fast food restaurants and a couple motels. A Super 8 and a Comfort Inn.

The Super 8 has a limited number of rooms available that will be offered for early registration at a 10% discount for GTG participants. You must PM me for the direct number to call for the registration, do not call central reservation or you won't get the discount.

There are also plenty of other motels etc just a few miles north and south on I65.

All participants will probably be asked to sign a liability waiver, just so you know. I think we will have plenty of wood to cut and decent size as well. If we get to it, we will try to have some cant's milled up for racing if thats what folks would like to do. We would be open to someone volunteering to organise the racing.

We would like to start a head count when time gets closer (end of May, first of June) so we have a idea on how many would be attending. Any questions can be directed to myself or Chris and we will do our best to answer them.

If someone could tell me how or can make this a sticky, thanks.

I'm hoping to come Mark, not to far away at all.

How far south is it from 94 off of 65?

Ross, the Exit is #240 and is marked Hebron-Lowell exit. I think the 94 exit on 65 is the #258 so it would be about 18 miles south of 94. Like I said it will be right at about 4 miles from there to the GTG site. Hope you can show up.

Dang, that ain't far away, 2 hours max.

I'm planning on being there, pending on Lisa's weekend to work. I'd like her to come along, seeing she's going to be the brains behind the Michigan GTG
