      I would like to meet up with some TCLers for the Metro Cruise. Who's in? Maybe we can make arrangements for a meeting spot.

      I think that was English, but yes - www.michiganvw.org.

      Anyways, what's the basic story on the cruise? Is it basically from Roger's Plaza out to the East end of 28th in Cascade? All day long, or is it busiest at night? I'll probably get into town around 5pm and plan to check things out after that.

      Roger's, Woodland Mall, & Toy's R' US are the main spots. But is basically goes from 28th & about Burlingame to Delta Imports on 28th in Cascade area (just past Wal Mart).

      I became part of the metro cruise last year when one of my buddies decided to get married on the same day, in a church off of 28th street.
