Annual Chicago Auto and Bike Show 2013

Normally a group of us attends both of these shows on the same day.

Chicago Auto Show: Feb 9-18/2013 website:
http://www.chicagoautoshow.com/default.aspx

Motorcycle Show: Feb 8-10/2013 website:
http://www.motorcycleshows.com/chicago

This is pretty much a heads up thread for any new members or old that are not familiar with the shows and would like to attend.
We can set up a group or groups, people dont have to they can go whenever they want, but it is a pretty good time when we all get together..

UPDATE: We are so far attending the bike show and auto show, Dinner and then Chicago indoor... times and meeting place TBD!
Liz was nice enough to email an event coordinator for the auto show and ask about group rates. Looks like the group rates start at 20 people. So we would need a solid 20 people to FOR SURE be going. Again, if we could get a head count, it would be great. Then we can plan for this and the rest of the day/evening.

*I (greenstreak) will be coming for sure and I will have my brother tag along.
*Chris/liz +?(butterfinger) (muffin..)
*Chris/Colleen +? (Bob..)
*Ric +3
* Jordan said she'd come even if rory isn't, looking like she needs a ride?
*Tad158 +1 dinner
*
*drozek for the motorcycle and go karting
*clown+?

I think the full 5#'s will elude me

As for the shows....at one point we discussed going to the auto show then going to Chicago Indoor Racing for the karts. If anybody still has interest in this, please say so. I'd love for this to work out. If we can get on this early enough then maybe we can actually organize it by the time it comes around

Definitely down for indoor carts..I think all previous attendees agreed on no bike show and Iowa trip peeps were liking the cart idea.

I'm going to go to the bike show either way. I know most guys didn't want to go so I will probably end up going on Sunday or maybe even Friday night.

As far as Chicago Indoor Racing, the pricing is as follows.......
You need to buy a "license" from them in order to race. A monthly license is $10 and a yearly one is $25. The best option for races is 7 for $70. Otherwise you pay something like $25 for each of the first 2 races then $10 each race after that.
Bring your own helmets. They have helmets to use but why if we have our own. Lately a few guys that I go with have brought gloves as well because their hands got calluses after racing
There is also an option to set up a race where the top 3 get a trophy and all. Not sure how much that is but can find out if there will be enough interest. Only problem is that carts are wildly inconsistent so chances are people will bitch and moan.

I'm in for the minivan racing as well. Can't wait to see what I can take out this year.

It was pretty cruddy. More than half of the show was for vendors (most of which were Hardley oriented) and there was really nothing more than what you would see at a local motorcycle dealer as far as bikes go.

Okay, that is the primary reason why I don't both with the MC show either here. Though, I seem to know a lot of people there...
