Thumbs down GTA Camaros - Cruise & Bar-b-que

EDIT July 14/09
Alright everyone. It seems that we are all very busy right now and as such the interest in this proposed little event is quite low at this time. Therefore we will postpone this idea until later in the summer when (a) more people have their car, (b) more people are available, and (c) I have more time

Thanks to those who responded. Stay tuned for the next gathering




_____________________________
A few of us (TJ91; Black67; SQUALO) have been having some little meet-ups in and around the GTA - even a couple little cruises. But is seems that we've been a bit limited in the attendance numbers. Part of the problem is short notice. Usually we try to organize something inside of 48 hours - just doesn't work. So here's the advance notice:

Date: Saturday July 18th
Time: Cruise - 10:00 ; Bar-B-Que - 1:00
Location: Cruise - TBD ; Bar-b-que - Mississauga (ending point of cruise)

Cruise:

The plan I have would be for anyone who is interested to post in this thread a good meeting spot near your house (Tim Hortons seem to be popular - but any place that is accessable and has a decent sized parking lot is fine). I can then plan a route that would come either to those meeting spots or someplace close by. With enough attendees this might mean we hit all the corners of the GTA from downtown to Richmond Hill to Brampton to.... well you get the idea.
In the interest of time, convenience and the number of stops I will likely have to move / re-designate certain meeting spots.
The first pick-up would be about 10:00am. The total cruise time including stops will depend on attendance - but I'm going to estimate 2-3 hours.

Bar-b-que:

The cruise would then end at my place for a bar-b-que social. Wings, burgers, corn, other bar-b-qued goodies, pop and water included. $10 per head (just to cover the costs). If you choose to BYOB that's up to you (but only if you bring a DD - otherwise I get to keep your Camaro overnight!)
I am located on the west edge of Mississauga. Even if you can't make the cruise you can come to the BBQ - but of course we encourage cruise attendence. Location details will be distributed privately to those who need it.

Where do I sign up?
Right here! Post your interest in this thread. Here's what I need:
- Available for the Bar-b-que
- How many (just me or my spouse and I (sorry no kids -not at this one anyway)
- Available for the cruise & Bar-b-que
- Suggested meeting spot (major intersection or street address)

(Those of you who live 30 hours away please don't bother with the "... can you come by my area? I'm out in Calgary/New York/Texas hehe...".)

Please note - If you're in please try your best to show!! I need good numbers or the extra people will be eating dog food.

I thought about tagging along and meeting a bunch of you, though I'm not sure if I will or not right now. I have to see if there are other things that come up in the next couple days. Weather is supposed to be decent -around 20 degrees and partial sun. I'd rather be out in a day like that than 30+humidity.

OK, well i dont know how exactly the cruise will be organized for sure, at least just by reading the first post, but here are my details

1) I WILL be coming exam or not...lol (its a stupid course anyways)....of course assuming that we even get enough people to make this event worthwhile
2) A friend will be coming with
3) I am located in Richmond Hill, closest major intersection/landmark is the timmies at 16th and Bathurst.
4) My friend is at Bayview and Finch, but he will probably meet me at my house.

A 2-3 hour cruise seems a bit excessive, but i dunno....if i had my Camaro id probably drive for that long myself!. My friend and I can take my Grand Prix over for the BBQ or meet the cruise somewhere around 12 or so, and maybe we could tail you guys or whatever

If we cant get enough people, the weekend after is even better for me (i think...lol)

Still waiting on some of the "usual suspects" to chime in. Common guys. And showing up an hour late *cough cough* Dennis * cough* won't cut-it on this one either.

MTron - Happy to have you along. For some reason I thought you had your car. Frank (Squalo) is up in your area. But not sure he's coming. And I can't speak for who he (or anybody) will let ride shotgun. I know that if we're in that neighbourhood I'd gladly let you ride with me. But I have a strict 'no adults in the backseat' policy (unless it's me ). And besides, you'd need a way to get home. The 2-3 hour cruise was a maximum based on doing a full circut of the GTA (depending on participation) and making 5-6 stops. This takes a while - trust me.

DGthe3 - You're also welcome. Be good to see you again. If I recall you're down towards Niagara right? We can meet at my house and you can ride along if you're interested.

Common guys! Get off yer keisters!!

Hey Scott,

Probably won't attend the BBQ but might be able to join in for the cruise. You know where I am, it is a bit out of the way although TJ is out this way as well. There is a Tim's at the corner of Mayfield and Hwy 10.

Let me know your thoughts.

Alright then - I'm calling it. We'll postpone this event to a later date. I have way too many things to do anyway. Thanks everyone. Watch this forum for the next local get together.

Cheers
