I think Hylton is using round numbers and yes these would assume we get the discount (it's not a huge cost for that lounge BTW). Regarding beer cost - not sure that this is factored in to the total. Will see how the funds work out - we plan to buy for those in attendance - but there might be a group kick-in for that - we'll see.

However you should consider that the total costs quoted are for the running of the main event (the food, the venue, the plaque being presented and all the other costs around that). So in other words, these costs are going towards us saying "thank you" to the builders of our cars. This is why Hylton has been asking for donations from the general populous here rather than just those attending. HOWEVER, for those who are attending, if you haven't put a little into the kitty, your donations are greatly appreciated (hint hint).
BIG thanks to all that have donated thus far!!!

The number includes the party room. I have put a lot of money in and am ultimately on the hook for the balance. If we get more donations then I will have no problem putting money towards the "open bar".

On that subject, I would like to have a few guys go over to the beer store Friday morning and load up on brew so we can bring it back to the hotel and put it on ice for the remainder of the afternoon while we are at the event. Perhaps we can all put $20 bucks each in a pot and spend it on beer and beer food for the Friday night.

I have a question for anybody that is in Oshawa right now...

Is the blue labeled 'Monster' (Low-carb) readily available in the area or should I bring my own?

(And let's NOT get started about certain people being high-maintenance, OK?)

Personally, I HATE buying beer while in Canada- it's friggin out of this world expensive. I'll throw in money if that's what we decide to do but we could always have each of the cars in the caravan from the states bring a case or two. I'm easily good for a couple cases of Labatt Blue coming back home (to where it was brewed) with me.

I'm on it. I'll stop at the Consumers Beverage in "the hood" on the way home from work. Amazing how the same chain can have different prices just because of the clientele they service. A 30-pack is $2 cheaper in the hood than it is by my house. Not enough to generally make a special trip there but I have less than a case left at home so I'll probably pick up 6 while I'm there. Considering a 30-pack of blue is 12.99 there, it's like buy 6- get one free...

Just how much is a 30 pack at the Beer Store???????????????

Granted it's a higher alcohol content...

Well that's even better.

Hell, I'm married too and my wife will be there. BUT (see, I can bold and capitalize it too) she won't last too long on the drinking mission I expect...

Argh... now we open the subject of booz.

Rick - you drink wine?!?! Ok I do too, but not in front of the guys! common!

American beer... let's just not start

Canadian beer expensive...everything is more expensive here. But that's b/c it's better (sorta) But let's save that debate for Friday night, after we have a few...

Low carb stuff is available here Angelina. All guys should give praise to the girls that go to this trouble... makes for a nicer "drinking environment"

I'll probably bring some Crown and coke for me. Others can do the same and we'll take stock Friday morning. BUT (notice that's a big BUT) we need to ensure that the base costs (before the fun-juice) are covered! We do not want Hylton to be the financial crutch of this event.

PS - We should be able to get access to the party lounge about noon hour to throw all the drinks on ice BTW. I did confirm this with the hotel. Hyton, that room is on your guest tab so maybe you can get the keys and give them to the Mole or someone while you and I are running around doing our business Friday morning.

I've never said thanks for the Camaro because I paid 42k for it and figured they should thank me. However,

THANK YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this car. Love it, love it, LOVE IT.

Friggin' weather forecasts. Grrrrr

The weather is a 50/50 thing. Look at the moving radar and you'll see that it could just as easily be sunny as it may be rainy. One thing I am blown away by is that nobody has cancelled out due to the weather. That's the type of folks I want to hang with...

Cancel due to weather? I go to Bills games in 3 feet of snow in December and tailgate for 5 hours before the game. Cancellation is only allowed due to circumstances beyond your control. The only one I know of is death.

It's what you do for 5 hours before the game that allows you to watch the Bills in 3 feet of snow...

Hi all,
I'm camarorick's wife. We'll both be attending as well. So, what I want to know is what happens to those of us who don't drink at all?

Of course, that would be me.....Am I still included in all the fun?

I have found a compromise that works. It just so happens that Duty Free (on the US side) sells cases of CANADIAN Labatt Blue (5% alcohol) for $17 a case. Guess where I'm going?
