Oct. 19- Fall Cruise in Ontario(Toronto-Muskoka)

*****rain date, cruise will be Sunday Oct. 20*****

I saw on a vette forum that there is a GTA- Muskoka fall cruise on Saturday Oct. 19. A few camaros are in the mix already and I am going to tag along. Anyone else interested?

I don't know the route but it starts in Brooklin (Hwy 7 and Brock) and heads up hwy 12 to the Muskokas. I see a group are meeting for a pre-convoy at Yorkdale and driving to Brooklin together.
Let me know if your interested in joining.

above is the link to the info in the vette forum. It looks like 4 camaros are in so far, you would be the 5th. I was looking at the numbers and they are close to 50 cars. A Porsche, Sky and a couple GTR's in the mix. Should be a good ride if the weather holds up. The rain day is on the Sunday Oct. 20th.
Let me know if your on Facebook and I will send you the facebook page link.

Departure Time: 10AM (so be there before)

EDIT #1: For those coming from the west side of the 400, there is a meetup at 8-9AM at Yorkdale Mall for the cruise to Brooklin. The meet spot is the same as the HDR spot. North parking lot in front of the Bay right by the highway. Then cruise 401 east to Brock Street (this is the 2nd Brock) and head north about 8km to the Timmies at Hwy 7.

EDIT #6 (10-11-13): Lunch is back on at Deerhurst. I've talked to the coordinator at Deerhurst and he's agreed to the following:

This is going to be a full day of cruising. Here are pics from the 2012 fall cruise.

Cruise Checklist:
Route Directions - I'll have written directions for everyone at the meet up
Full tank of gas - There is an Ultramar and a Shell across the street at the Brooklin meeting spot if you need to fill up
GPS/Maps (just in case)
Snacks/Drinks for during the drive
Warm/Cool Clothing - if it turns out to be a warm day, you may want to dress down or if it's a cool day, you may want to dress up
FRS Radios - Set to Channel 5.0
Cameras - Video and/or still
Emergency Contacts in your phones (maybe have a couple of phone numbers from people on the route. My cell is 416-450-7214)
In a large cruise like this, it also is a good idea to have a buddy car with you. Someone from the group can be your buddy car in the event you get lost or break down or something along those lines so that you're not left alone.

Stan.

EDIT #3 (10-05-13): People were curious as to how many cars so I added to the roll call tally.
Roll Call: (41 cars/65 people yes + 16 cars/24 people maybe's)

For anyone interested, here's the breakdown of the cars expected for the cruise.

45 Corvettes
1 Saturn Sky
2 Nissan GTRs
5 Camaros
2 Porsches
1 Chevrolet SS
1 Toyota MR2

However, long term forecast isn't looking good at this time.

In Toronto
Saturday, October 19 12 Feels like 10 40% POP Cloudy with showers
Sunday, October 20 10 Feels like 7 20% POP Variable cloudiness

In Huntsville
Saturday, October 19 9 Feels like 6 70% POP Cloudy with showers
Sunday, October 20 8 Feels like 5 80% POP Cloudy with showers

Lets see what tomorrow brings.

Looks like the weather won't be cooperating with us this weekend. If both days are a wash, I won't be rescheduling this until next year. By this weekend, most of the leaves will be on the ground, not in the trees, and all the bright and vibrant colours will be gone.

But next year, weather permitting, I'm scheduling this fall leaves colour cruise for the weekend before Thanksgiving. :thumbs:

Everyone needs to check the forum prior to leaving Sat or Sun morning for Brooklin. I'll have the yay or nay posted around 7am or so. Or you can check with the weather services. If it shows rain for the day in Whitby and Huntsville, the cruise is off.

Setting up cruises this late in the calendar is more hit and miss though. But it's been a great summer this year with hardly and rain out's.

Today (Friday) would have been a beautiful day for this drive.

Huntsville
Saturday, October 19 10 Feels like 8 90% Light rain
Sunday, October 20 9 Feels like 8 40% Isolated showers

Whitby
Saturday, October 19 12 Feels like 10 90% Light rain
Sunday, October 20 12 Feels like 10 20% Cloudy periods

At this point, I'm pretty confident that Saturday will be a no go for us. I'll put up the final word around 6am Saturday to help those that are coming from farther out. If anyone is unsure, check out Environment Canada. If it still shows rain for Saturday, cruise is cancelled.

Huntsville, ON - 7 Day Forecast - Environment Canada

But it has happened once before, last year, the weather was all doom and gloom for a cruise I had planned, even on the day of the cruise, which I then cancelled, and the weather ended up being great that day.

Glad to have you along wwoody. Hopefully you'll be able to make it on Sunday though.

I'm calling it now. Every weather report I'm reading for all the different weather sites is reporting lots and lots of rain for Saturday. So let's reschedule for Sunday.

Rain or shine, it's on, on Sunday.

Thanks everyone.
Stan.

Sorry about the reschedule guys. I wish I could control the weather.

Hopefully, I'll do better next year. Look for my Fall Cruise Date of Oct 4/5 in 2014.
