We really haven't had the best of luck with weather the last couple of years in the middle of June, it's been rainy and cold, what would the group think of later in June (22) or the first weekend in July? It would be nice to drive with the sunroof open or top down on the cars for a change.

Check the weather stats at www.weathernetwork.com, end of June/July looks better weather wise. Just my two cents.

Side note from this thread, glad to see other Camaro owners driving in winter. I drove mine two winters, everyone I talked too was convinced they would be horrible on winter roads.

Cant wait for the cruise this summer but it's rained the last 2 years in a row and it would be nice to have sunshine and warm weather for the cruise (tops down ,sunroofs open ,stereos cranked, mullets blowing in the wind )we only do this once a year .would it be a good idea since cruise is still 6 months away to see what everybody else that is interested in attending thinks about the best date for cruise?A majority of the people that attended last year haven't even replied to thread and the bigger the pack of camaros the better.

Yes, the rain sure seems to put a damper on things. And I personally hate the rain.

Wonder if maybe we should shoot for July instead?

Should be hotter weather for more

Just tossing it out there...

Seems to me 68 RS has put a lot of time and effort into organizing this event now for the 4th year...always on fathers day weekend. The first year was sunny, the second year rained, and last year was a mix of sun and rain. This cruise goes into the mountains it is extremely difficult to predict the weather anytime of year.
I does bother me that 3 people that spend a lot of time together all make the same post to make it seem like a whole bunch of people are not happy with the June weekend.
Part of the reason I'm sure there has not been a lot of replys to this thread yet might have something to do with me not sending out a PM to everyone that has been involved in a Alberta Cruise before. I normally do this just a bit later...a lot of people do not spend the time on C5 that some of us do

I don't predict the weather. Everyday is a crap shoot in Alberta. Rain, Snow, Sleet, Hail, Sunshine, if you don't like the weather in Alberta just wait 5 minutes. LOL

Last Wednesday it was warmer in Edmonton than it was in Phoenix and Las Vegas, at plus 10, by Saturday we were freezing our butts off at minus 23.

I'm all for global warming. LOL

Whoa Layla, I meant absolutely no disrespect to 68RS in my post by suggesting that we look at alternate dates and I truly appreciate the effort he puts in to pull something like this together for our crew, but let me clarify a couple of things:


1. I have no issue with the date being on Father’s Day, in fact I don’t remember saying anything about Father’s day in my post (and just to clarify the “always on fathers day weekend”, the first cruise wasn’t Father’s day weekend it was the weekend before), truth be told I think it’s a fun day for the dad's to get out and be with other dad’s and perhaps their kids to do something that they enjoy.

2. The first year of the cruise was beautiful, sunny and warm, the second year it poured, and last year we had rain, cold wind and some sun. “This cruise goes into the mountains it is extremely difficult to predict the weather anytime of year.” Maybe all the more reason we should look at an alternate dates??

3. “It does bother me that 3 people that spend a lot of time together all make the same post to make it seem like a whole bunch of people are not happy with the June weekend.” Nobodies comments were malicious in anyway. Yes, we talk about our Camaro’s lots (cause they are AWESOME) But I'm sure most will agree that driving in the rain with these beautiful cars kinda sucks, am I right?

4. “Part of the reason I'm sure there has not been a lot of replys to this thread yet might have something to do with me not sending out a PM to everyone that has been involved in a Alberta Cruise before. I normally do this just a bit later...a lot of people do not spend the time on C5 that some of us do” – All the more reason to send PM’s out? Get more than a handful of people to weigh in on a date???

With all this being said, I’m in for the cruise (As I'm sure everybody else's is too), no matter what the date.

I don't have an issue with the cruise being on Father's Day either. As pointed out, it gives kids of all ages to enjoy a great cruise with their fathers! (Wonder if I could get mine to come). Hmmmm.....

And I'm sure nobody meant any disrespect to 68 RS. In fact, I'm sure we all appreciate the fact he puts these cruises together.
I would need high doses of medication to put something like this together.

No matter the weekend, I will...as always...do my absolute best, to get the weekend off. Or at least as much as I can for the cruise.

Just got my schedule today and it looks like I may have to do more begging and pleading again. One of the other guys at work bought an SS last year and I might be able to get him to come as well. So let's firm up a date! LOL

I'm hoping someone can book Boston Pizza in Rocky Mountain House again. I know that the dealership in Rocky Mountain House was going to try to something for us this year as well, so I will be in contact with them.

I will keep everyone posted.

I'm all for cruises every month of the year.... I've got this one in June.....Late June early July I'm Cruising to the 3rd annual Sturgis Camaro Rally (about 300 Camaros expected Drag racing, auto cross, poker runs into the Black Hills) , as of right now with 4 other Alberta Cars, meeting up with a few from B.C. and a bunch from Washington etc. in Billings MT. August looks good for another BC/Alberta meet and greet....


As much as the weather can affect June there are 3 other things that make the June cruise so great

1. Its when the person organizing it can make it.

2. Its early enough in the year to get a good turnout of Camaros (many peoples summers are already booked with weddings, vacations, etc.)

3. Lack of Traffic anyone who has spent any time in Banff/Jasper in July know the roads are packed....we have been very lucky in June letting our cars stretch their legs a bit
