Default Any Southern Illinois clubs or meets?

I'm in el paso right now, stationed at fort bliss. In a few weeks i'll be getting out of the army and heading back up to southern illinois. I can't remember seeing many subies around so. ill. but back then I didn't really pay attention to them. Looking to see if there are any clubs/groups like there are around el paso.

If anyone knows of any lmk

You can at the very least come up for monthly cruises.

I'm finally back in Illinois. So far I just get weird looks, probably because of how aggressive the car sounds (straight piped), then they see what the noise is coming from haha. I'll keep an eye out around carbondale to see if I can spot any.

Saw a white newer widebody wrx sedan today in Carbondale, going the other way so I couldn't talk to him.

Welcome to SIL. There are a few scoobies around, but I never hear of any meets. I'm in the white bugeye with driving lights and my ex is in a white hawkeye STi. Other scoobies will usually wave, but that's about it. The StL Subaru crowd is a friendly bunch, but I rarely get up there during their meets. I get curious looks too, probably because they don't expect a woman to be driving, or think I don't know what I'm driving. Scooby isn't quiet either (sounds rather nice if you like boxer growl )

I go to siu and drive the 08 blue sedan wrx. It's a little sleeper I guess considering it doesn't sound anything like typical boxer suby. I also have a buddy that goes there too with the 13 white hatch with mud flaps. I have been trying for the past two, three years to get the subaru guys out here to meet but their is just so few of us. Hopefully after break we'll be able to do something, like cruise throw alto pass or elsewhere.

I have a red 2008 WRX sedan with flaps and a turboback straight pipe. Hit a pot hole in the rain last weekend on I-57 and slashed the sidewall up, hopefully she'll be up and running again tomorrow.

Ouch! I don't know if anyone locally does lifetime alignments, but might be worth looking into. I know someone at Firestone in/near Des Peres (StL), so I take mine there, and have a lifetime alignment. Speaking of which, I should schedule an alignment next time I'm up there.
