There isn't many on-site venders. The one's that are participating (see sponsors on first post) are largely there to provide information and answer questions. Those sponsors won't have much in the way of cash-and-carry product. BUT, Nurse Chevy has stocked up their Camaro/Performance related accessories big time! They will have plent of GM and GM licensed accessories / products for sale as well as lots of Choko apparel. They accept major credit cards and the almighty cash.

Thanks, I know you will represent us well. By the way the BumbleBee Camaro draws alot of attention here in Niagara Falls Area. Have a safe trip..

For those of you arriving in Oshawa Friday morning, we are recommending that you come directly to Martinrea. It's about 25 min's west of the hotel on the 401.
Going directly there will save you time. There will be food, drinks and washrooms at Martinrea to tend to your travel weary bodies.

****Convoy Info From The West****

Our group will be crossing through the Port Huron/Sarnia border. Anybody coming from the west that wants to meet up with us, please let me know!

I have been told that it is much less time consuming to go this way than to go through Windsor.

Please email me at anna@spartachevy.com or PM me. I will be figuring out two places to meet up with people, one just before Port Huron in Michigan and one once we are into Canada, maybe where the 402 meets the 401. (I still don't have any plans to meet anybody here...let me know if you are planning on meeting us here!)

My caravan is meeting at the Meijer Grocery store in Cascade (5531 28th St SE, Grand Rapids, MI) and heading out of the West Michigan area some time between 12:30 and 1:30 pm. This should put us at the Sarnia crossing AROUND 3:45 to 4:45 pm. We will stop to the Blue Water Bridge Duty Free Shop (http://www.bluewaterbridgedutyfree.com/) on the way through and I am thinking we should be at the 401/402 an hour and 45 minutes later (allowing a half hour to shop) around 5:30 or 6:15 pm. This should put us arriving in Oshawa around 8:15 pm to 9:00 pm.

These are all estimates. If anybody looks at this and says 'She's Crazy!', please let me know. I am relying on Mapquest for my time estimates!

___________________________________________

So far, this is who I am meeting up with

@ Meijer Store
Camaro Scotty
sdoomxz (ZR1)
SS Eric
Jekyll N Hyde
Octane SS/RS (RJT)
Bob & Brenda (Synergy Green)

@/Near Portland Exit
Angelina (IOM)

I-69 at Exit 87
efpardo (CGM)

If I have left you out, PLEASE let me know!!

email anna@spartachevy.com
or PM me

Hello all! Less than 2 days to go!

Couple quick things - First, if you haven't already, please review the updated schedule in post 683 above.

Second, for anyone planning to take the plant tour at Martinrea Friday - this year there is a few rules that we need to follow please:

- No entering the plant for any reason other than with a tour guide (all other activities, BBQ etc. will be outside, I believe we will be able to access washrooms through the office)
- No electronic devices in the plant. Anyone found to have an electronic device will be asked to leave.
- No open toe or high heel shoes allowed in the plant.
- Safety glasses (provided by Martinrea) must be worn at all times while inside the plant


Last year was great and everyone cooperated. This year there is some tighter rules but I don't think that's a problem. I think we can all live with the above and everyone's happy

Thanks
BBOMG Organizers

If you want, I am right off I-75 and have spare room. I am 20 minutes south of WIndsor. I don't know which way you're going but the offer is there.
