Nebraska/Iowa Owners?

Anyone in Nebraska with an eight? I've seen alot around just trying to figure if any of those are members here on the board.

I live in Omaha and we had a meet this summer with a few Mitsubishi owners. I'd like to get more meets set up this summer and maybe a few autocross days at Mid America Center or Lincoln Airport.

So Nebraska/Iowa people report in and I'd like to gauge interest in a meet once the weather warms up.

Always down for a meet. Went to a few last year and I think we need to get more 8's together. Ive seen more around town and maybe we just need to spread the word more. I know there are people who dont even know that this site exsists. I know that I didnt. The only way I new is because someone with an 8 approached me. COME ON PEOPLE!!!!! Lets spread the word.

Would be nice to get a meet going somewhere in the middle of us, like around KC or something. I'd definitely be down for that. I usually head up to NE for the holidays, as that's where the family is. I can only do that 6 hour drive so many times haha.

Okay well since the weather is getting warmer I might try to plan an Omaha meet for anyone in the surrounding areas. Since RX8s are kinda scarce I might invite other Mazdas as well.

So I'm gonna start tryin to gauge interest for a Nebraska/Iowa meet... probably open to all Mazdas.

What location would you guys like... Zorinsky or Chalco are always good bets.

Hi there vX-2... I actually live in Lincoln right now for college. What color 8 do you drive I haven't seen any other 8s down there except for another red one.

Chalco is on 156th and Giles which is not far from the Sapp Bros. exit of I80.

Zorinsky has entrances on 156th and 168th between Q and Center... the main one is on 156th and R or something like that.
