Ontario Camaro Club's 2009 Nationals event and some interesting people...

VIDEOS HERE:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27481


I went to St Catharines, Ontario today for the Ontario Camaro Club's 2009 Nationals. During the course of the day I met a few of the members here (including finally Hylton in person) and got to check out some FANTASTIC cars with my older son (Connor-10).

So I meet up with who I thought was just going to be Hylton and another two 5th gens...





and there ends up being like 12-14 of us and we haven't even hit the "car show" yet...

So we get there and after a little shuffling around, they were so impressed by the showing of the 5th gens that they line up all of us in front of the main tent.



Hmmm, there's something yellow in the distance past the tent on the far right...
Look through the tent... Is that another 5th gen's taillights I see? We take a walk over to check it out. My son gets to see and sit in his first yellow gen5 in person; but I tell him there's something special about this yellow gen5... back to that later...









So as I was saying, there was just a virtual sea of Camaros from 1967 right up to our gen5's.







We wander around checking out the cars, get lunch from vendors on site and then it's time for a little cruise...with about 80 other cars. Half went around the city one way to Niagara Falls, half went the other...











So, we get back, having not hit the Beer Store for some unknown reason, and hang out for a while until dinner. During the day, I had been introduced to a very special individual (actually two) but for now let's concentrate on candidate "A". I had the distinct pleasure of eating dinner with a great group of people including Hylton and someone else many of you may know...ya, that's me and my kid but I'm not talking about us...



With his popularity overflowing, it seemed only appropriate that he was given time at the podium fielding questions about the Oshawa plant...



But, as you can see, there was always someone in the way of me taking pictures of him up there in his glory...

The same guy who got in the way of me taking a picture of that yellow Gen5 with the door open...



Seemed like I knew him from somewhere...

You all know who I'm talking about...

The man who preaches ( I mean come on, look at the picture ) the Camaro
praises until he's nearly out of breath...



Yes, the other person I had the distinct honor of meeting today was none other than Scott Settlemire, Fbodfather for the newbies...

Having met him and Thor absolutely made the day complete. The Ontario Camaro Club was so impressed with him, they made him captain of the Canadian hockey team.





And just when you thought it couldn't get any better... my two new friends officially met Waldo...



and signed him for posterity...








To all those that made the day what it was, notably Hylton, Scott, and the Mole, thank you all for all you do.

Cool pics Trent. Looks like you guys had a great time. Waldo gets even more famous with signatures from Scott and the Mole

The Mole looks a little different. Did he get a nose job?

I went today. Was a great show as usual. There were one 3 5th gens there today though.

I hope to have some pics. My memory card is acting up on me, so crossing fingers.

Next year we are already planning on going out and staying for Saturday and Sunday since it's only 15 minutes from US/Canada border.

Great thread Trent. I am so glad you came out and joined us for the day (despite the initial meeting area mix-up). Your son was a real trooper! He had to sit there and listen to a bunch of grown men and women talk about cars. At least we had ice cream for him. Hope he got his fill of Camaros! Will we see you next year? I am going to expect at least 20 Camaro5 cars....

Connor had a great time (so did I ) although he definitely burned out by the end of the night. I see no reason I wouldn't be there next year; it's less than 45 minutes from or to my house. Even the possible alternative isn't a bad drive... Trying to talk my wife into Carlisle in two weeks. Tag is picking up his car from Tom there and that's one hell of a show. It'll make the Four Points look like a movie preview...

I never get much sleep at these shows because there is too much to see and to many people to talk to. That Carlisle show would kill me because all my 1st gen and 2nd gen friends would be there as well!

You are right though, it's the grand daddy of Camaro shows.

Well I have to say that I had an absolute blast at this show. 6 Camaro5 members met up Saturday morning and attended. Click on OP's picture link above to see the Camaro5 cars cruising in together. We are also at the end of the Youtube vid.

The shows organizers (Ontario Camaro Club) did a fantastic job. I want to personally thank Dale Oldham, Gary Kilbride and Ron Poplawski and team for the great job they did in putting this show on and welcoming Camaro5 members with open arms.

They publically thanked Camaro5.com and myself many times for attending their show. They were worried they would not see many 2010's show up because people have been picking their car up over the last month. We made quite a statement pulling in.

The food at the banquet was top shelf. It was all you can eat, be a pig buffets with baked chicken, beef and vegetarian lasagna with many different salads and hot veggie platters. Dessert was a boatload of fresh fruit, ice cream and 10 different types of cakes, again - all you could eat.

I'm so glad that I was able to meet Trent, Rick, Mike, Scott, and agent "E" (agent "E" would like to remain off the boards but states that he doesn't miss a post. Like everyone else, he's addicted.

Thanks to 3WhiteRag and The Mole for coming out and joining Camaro5 for a while. They shared some very intimate knowledge with us on how our cars and engines were built. You all know The Mole works in the Camaro plant but you may not know that 3WhiteRag works in the St. Catherines engine plant that built your cars engine (V6 or V8).

Speaking of intimate knowledge, I must tell all of you who did not go to the banquet that the FBodfather shared some very interesting news with everyone there that Trent and I are forbidden to share with you. There are definitely unexpected perks to attending these events.

I also want to thank the FBodfather for coming out. I hope you truly feel that we are your "northern" family that you continue to come out and visit every year. I can't tell you how many discussions I had over the weekend with enthusiasts who were in awe of your commitment to all of us. Next year, I promise to have 20 5th gens show up!

I also want to thank the CCFBG (Ontario FBody club) who welcomed the Camaro5 members with open arms in the cruise down. These members represent the best of the most dedicated FBODY people on the planet. Again, please click on the OP's link for our pictures.

What a great weekend!
