Montana Drive-In discussion

http://www.montanadrivein.com/index.htm

from previous discussions:
20 bucks, you see 2 movies, get a full rack of ribs and a large drink
if we plan ahead and make reservations, I am sure

5th weekend in September
I would say on a Saturday evening because of the distance
How far is this from, say the Huntsville International Airport?

Well, what does anyone think????

Oh, September does not have a 5th Saturday, but October does.

Note: their website indicates if 50 or more, call for discounts. If in October, we are available and sounds like an evening of good food, good company, relaxation and enjoyment.

Looks like this was on both our minds. I just posted in the other thread.

Saturday October 1st is one of the busiest weekends for some reason. Everyone has an event planned for the first, and even though the evening isn't that busy, I don't think anyone that attended earlier events would be ready for 2+ hours worth of driving. I would say we stick to a Friday night.

The distance isn't bad from our area. From Cafe 302, it's just over an hour.

But it's going to a pretty cold night by the 5th Saturday in October.

I think we could almost get that many if we can get the details nailed out and get the word out.

Here's what I've posted on the calendar based on previous conversations. I'm sure it will have to be revised, but I wanted to get the ball rolling:

Well, for the ones of us that work, will have to drive 2+ hours from our home to the drive-in, and cannot get off until 5 or thereafter, it would be hard for those to make it. Local drive-ins are good for a Friday night, but ones out of state may be better for some to many on a Saturday night.

I thought about that, and if someone can make it to Cafe 302 by 6:30, they'll easily have enough time to eat and go to the drive-in. They'll have to cut out after the first movie to get back home at a decent time, but a lot of people did that anyways.

Well if I'm going out of town for an event, I make sure to clear my schedule for the day. Like Import Face Off. I leave no later then 6:30 am and usually end up back around 11 pm or 12 am. Last time I went I rented a hotel and just stayed the night lol. Me and the wife are actually thinking about doing this as well for this event. I know a lot of people just can't clear schedules for stuff like that so it's hard to do. So if anyone knows of any good hotels in that area that would be great.

Samir, need to contact car clubs in the area of the drive-in so that you can up the attendance. The more to look at the better. If you need help getting the contact information for those clubs, I will help search and get it. It may be hard to get the ones that have to drive 2+ hours on a Friday after work (that includes the Decatur area). Thanks, Marsha

I don't have the contact information for those clubs, so if you could send it to me I'll see what I can do. But to be honest, you probably know them better than I since that's not an area I'm familiar with.

Well, I sent emails with all the information and websites to all TN clubs that I could locate from Winchester to Murfreesboro, and from Shelbyville to Chattanooga. Now just wait and see if any of them chime in here. Marsha

Sorry everyone, I have had a few crappy things going on including internet issues due to the storms the other night. Even the shop internet is messed up. I got the flier laid out but the night of the storms I was going to get the info off here and couldn't. I'll have them made by this afternoon .

Thank you Ryan! I was wondering what happened. The lightning seemed to do a lot of damage everywhere--I couldn't work on the Altima the other night because my storage garage doesn't have lights anymore.

I completely understand, but that first Saturday in October is already packed to the gills with events. I think there would be even less people coming if this was on Saturday than Friday.
