Illini Mets Fall 2001 MeetingGary G. Bosselman, President of the Illini Mets
The Illini Mets' Fall 2001 meeting was Saturday, 3 November 2001. Indian Summer allowed many members to bring their cars. Photos below.
British Car Show Report
There were three Mets present (all Illini Mets!): Greenlee's, Brandys', and Teschky's
The heavy rain kept attendance down to 550 cars, instead of the expected 800.
The new location (Moraine Valley Community College) was a hit.
The technical sessions were a hit (because of their content, and because they were inside (dry!) Thanks to Illini Mets and BCU member Gail Brandys for organizing them.

Ken and Etta McDuffy attended.
There were two Mets present.
It is a good show, especially for kids, and picnic-ers
