Thinking on making a WEST MICHIGAN 44t club / group, any thoughts?

I have been to the Detroit shows for years and love them make it out for many of them ( 2-1/2 hr drive) and as always we hit the Midwest show.
Are there just not many west Michigan bmx folks around or interested these days?

Seems like me an ritchiecamaro are the only west Michigan guys that arrive.
We have lightly discussed this and I am open to thoughts and ideas to possibly make our own group.

AND GO....

Not to be rude, high krt1978

Was hoping for more of a turn out and or feed back on here. Maybe there is not many folks over here on the West side of the state.
Lets cast out another net and see what bites.

I'm in the Lansing area.  Been to many of the Detroit shows too and love getting together with the guys over there and would be happy to head west for shows & rides too!  Grew up in a small town on the west side and Freewheeler was my LBS (though it was almost an hour away).  Have a few other friends who may be game too.  Thanks for working on getting something started!  cool

Re: Thinking on making a WEST MICHIGAN 44t club / group, any thoughts?

Midway, hmm kinda like it,

So far seems there may be be more people north of us but none the less we are west michigan and nothing much happens over here.

I figured I would let all of you know a little more about me to help break the ice a little and let you guys know more of where Im thinking.
1. Born and raised in Hastings,MI
2. started riding around 10 and never looked back. I have around 40 bikes in my collection. 1982-2003 bikes in my collection--so far hehe
3. began collecting at a young age, at 42 I still ride flat, dirt and a little street.
4. In addition to bmx I play drums (25+ years). 80 metal head
5. I have a small hobby machine shop- I have been making and repairing bmx parts.
6. I also run a part time graphics business, (many years now) I can help with restoration graphics!.
7. By day I am a design engineer in the aviation industry.

My big thing to preserve bmx history and share with everyone as well as hang out with cool like minded people. Shows, meets, rides or even garage parties in my shop machine shop. And last but not least help others make there 2 wheeled horses make them happy.

There, just a hint of who I am.
