Title: WSC Super Summer Meet - Postponed
Post by: jutes on June 19, 2009, 09:55:46 PM
Location: TBD
Address: TBD
Time: TBD


It's that time again folks so lets get a meet going before summer is over. For now lets take suggestions and put ideas forward. Keep in mind that the Super Duper meet locations should be in a central location so everyone has a chance to attend.

Go a little bit further south...some people even put their guns away for the afternoon at least.

Edmonton or Calgary gets my vote.  That seems pretty central for most people.  I'm not into Banff or Jasper because my wife and kids don't like to camp and I'm afraid to see what I'd have to pay for hotels there...
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Taking Suggestions
Post by: saar on June 20, 2009, 01:21:53 PM
I'd prefer Jasper over Banff, or really anywhere but Banff if we're going to be in that area of the world.

There are a ton of large-ish campgrounds and facilities all along HWY 93 (Icefields Parkway) including a full on hotel across the highway from the Athabasca Glacier itself, for those not interested in actual camping or those with young children, etc.

Post by: BlackArcher101 on June 20, 2009, 09:03:05 PM
If we did Jasper, folk from Calgary would most likely have to camp or hotel for sure just to spend time there.
There will be bound to be people who want to make it a day trip.

Or if we did something like that, maybe book a group campground.  That'd be pretty cheap and I'm guessing there would be noise complaints for sure ;)
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Taking Suggestions
Post by: soulvaccination on June 20, 2009, 09:15:50 PM
How about if we break it up into two weekends over the summer/fall?  One in Edmonton and a second one in the mountains someplace?  People could do one or the other or both depending on their location. 

Calgary/Red Deer/Edmonton people could hit both easily and if someone is busy with work or something and can't make the first one, they wouldn't have to feel quite so suicidal, as they'd get a second chance?

Just a thought....

I haven't been here that long, but it seems like there's enough of a member base here to do two different meets.  One for the folks up north and one for those of us living in a more southernly location.  Leave the invitations wide open, so people could go to one or both, like someone else had previously mentioned, which would be great considering some people's work schedule's aren't that flexible.

Are there any dates in mind as of yet?

Post by: STI_Crazy on June 21, 2009, 12:22:37 PM
Due to busy schedule, i have to say Edmonton and that of course also depends on the date.
Getting ready to go on holidays in a month or so.

Jasper might be another possibility.

Two meets may be "convenient", but then still separates the two northern and southern clans.
I like to get together with the southern folk now and again (mostly cause "now and again" is all I can take of GlennC ;) )

No city is going to be perfect, nor is any time.
But the idea of a SUPER meet, is to get as many together as possible.

Two meets doesn't necessarily separate the two groups. By having one meet, people who could have maybe made one of the 2 meets might not be able to come to the one big one if say it was too far away for just a day trip. Also, I know myself along with others would likely make it to both meets, since who doesn't love subie meets  ;) Trying to find a single date that could work for everyone is often an impossible task, if we had 2 you are more likely to be able to accommodate more people.

Maybe have one that is central to all and most likely would require a overnight stay (ala Jasper) and then have the other one in Sylvan or somewhere more central and easier for a single day trip.

Just an option anyways...
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Taking Suggestions
Post by: Zaider on June 22, 2009, 12:05:24 AM
My issue with having two meets is it screws the idea of having a central location. There are already Calgary meets (on wednesdays) which anyone local can come to and every once in a while, something like the SoC meet comes along and people from the surrounding area come (even from Edmonton). If you're gonna have a Supermeet, better to make it a CENTRAL location and then those who want to make the drive can come...

Two meets would mean more people go to each one, but its not a SUPER meet... its an area meet...

my $0.02 anyway
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Taking Suggestions
Post by: ExHonda on June 22, 2009, 07:10:34 AM
We had it in Edmonton last year so I am fine with it being some where else this year. However I can't take anymore days off this summer because my vacations are already booked. I am gone for Canada day long weekend to Vancouver, and from August 13th to the 24th. So as long as it isn't on any of those days I will do my best to attend.

But because I can't really take additional days off it depends what day it falls on. If it is going to be in a location where I have to spend the night after the meet, it can't be held on a Sunday because I have to get up at 4:30am to be at work on time on Monday.

So if the meet is held Friday night, or Saturday I should be fine to go anywhere that is within a days drive. If it is going to be a Sunday meet it would have to be local (Edmonton/Red Deer/Calgary) for me to attend.

That all being said I would be happy with a Banff meet on a Saturday  :D
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Taking Suggestions
Post by: silent on June 22, 2009, 08:32:06 AM
We should book a campground, possibly late july for adequate planning, and then make a weekend out of it.  People can come just for a day or camp for a day or two.

Post by: wingless on June 22, 2009, 10:18:45 AM
I've been thinking of hosting a WSC weekend at our cottage... yea it's a bit far for the Calgarianites, but it's VERY close to Cold Lake, about an hour 1/2 from Edmonton and about the same from Ft. Mac.

Camping would be FREE... I wonder how many cars, and tents we can jam in the yard...

The location is Long Lake... there is a Provincial Park there too, for those that would rather stay there.

If I can't pull this off... my vote is Jasper.

I was up there this weekend, My brother was in Vegas, so we had his two little monsters... there were 8 grand kids in total.

The roof is sheeted, I helped bring a ton of shingles up, and he's off all week, so it's getting done. I wanted to help out, but it's just not in the cards.

But the place looks great!

It's that time again folks so lets get a meet going before summer is over. For now lets take suggestions and put ideas forward. Keep in mind that the Super Duper meet locations should be in a central location so everyone has a chance to attend.

Suggestions

A: Cold Lake, August 1-2. Things to do: http://www.coldlakeairshow.com/main/ (http://www.coldlakeairshow.com/main/), BBQ at the CL suby house - plenty of parking for all. Cruise the area annoying the local Military Police with constant boxer rumble, etc.

B: Edmonton, Summer. Cause Snackers lives there.

C: Jasper/Banff/Woods near Hwy1A

If we are doing it near the base, then watch you don't blow a green light, they hate it when you don't stop for a green light...LOL, a very long story when I was on base in Borden, ON...Silly MP's

It is :) did it two weeks ago.  Biggest issue is wildlife so you have to take it pretty easy (saw 2 black bear, 1 grizzly, deer galore...), also loads of traffic to deal with.  The view is worth it though.

Valley of the Five, Saturday Night Lake, Overlander, etc etc....

I went from Rocky --> Icefields last weekend (13/14 June) and also saw a whack of wildlife. It was mostly due to the forest fires smoking them out onto the roads, but still it was neat.

There is also a nice/hidden ninja camping spot along HWY 11 alongside Abraham Lake. It's tucked away up on top of some rocks near the highway, and is free/large. The only downside is the lack of amenities for those not willing to rough it for a few days.

Not everyone can fit a king sized mattress in the back of their car.

Before we go any further with this, what dates would work for people? I believe that August 1,2,3 is a long weekend. Perhaps something during then?

Here is a suggestion. Have a convoy for the Edmonton/North alberta people and a seperate one for the Calgary/South people. The edmonton peeps go through Jasper while the Calgary members go through Banff. We meet in the middle and drive through RMH into Red Deer. Camping/Hotels, etc can be arranged during the trip.

now that I've got the Subaru camper (mattress in the back of the Fozzy) I'm up for a mountain trip off the beaten path. I know I've still got more clearance than most of the STi's out there so I won't have to worry about that, but it would be nice to get away from the city to some place that can be reached as a day trip for most (Calgary, Edmonton, North+South peeps) but can also be an overnight spot. That being said, I've got no real suggestion so I'm not sure how much that counts for... I heard Pigeon Lake though, and that's a good place to be at.

Ok, I'll bite.  So this is assuming we do a multi-day trip meet?  If not, why the heck would you go in a big circle to get to Red Deer (for the Calgary/Edmonton members?)

I like this idea. Also, I didn't mean sleep in the car. I meant our cars can handle a little off-roading to find 'unmarked' camp sites ;)

But yes, I also understand that some of you actually have show cars and don't take them barreling down trails ;)

Yes it would be a multi-day trip. If people want to go camping it would be multi-day anyways, but like Perfect Dark said, most camp sites are booked solid in the summer.

I think a multi-day trip especially on a long weekend really wont get "super meet"  turn out. I vote Cold Lake (I know it's far for the southern Albertans) and we do a photo shoot.

We are extremely busy right now training with the Army for the sandbox and preparation for the upcoming Olympics, so getting something organized within our squadron will be next to impossible.

I think we should keep this low-key and simple. Lets remember here, not everyone is into camping or hiking or other outdoor activities in the woods. This is why I believe that we should do something like the meet in September, meet/cruise in the day time and have something for the night folk (no minors  ;) ). Remember to keep this a central location i.e. Edmonton/Red Deer area to accommodate the northern people like ft.mac/cl and people from Calgary. I know I don't want to drive anymore than 3 hours just to get to a meet.

Sylvan Is not a good idea for a large cruise with 35+ cars. Just trying to find one parking spot in that town on a weekend during the summer is a pain. Trying to find enough places for 35+ would be difficult.

the new wal-mart in Sylvan has a way oversized parking lot, it's usually half empty.  also, since the wal mart, the parking lot at the no frills and hewlett park landing is usually pretty empty as well...not really much of a scenic location, but there should be enough room...I agree that it's not a good place for a cruise though...
has anyone thought about Gull Lake?  Namely the day use area at Brewer's campground?

Rockey Mountain house area is easy access for both calgary and Edm people - and its quite nice!  I did some adventuring yesterday around in RMH area.

Medicine Lake is not bad - although fairly tight with regard to driving space - but theres an AWESOME 10km gravel road before the camp ground: The damn thing could be used as a rally stage, its so fun!

The other sites i checked out were skid sites mostly inhabited by people who are living under a tarp... Literally.. =S  (Elk River.. dont even bother going there... *cough* SKETCHY *cough*)

I think that area would be perfect really.  Close to both major cities, yet nice land, and not busy with the usual jasper/banff folk..... however, that means less family stuff to do.

agreed... even though i own a Subaru, i dont want to take my nice rims out on gravel.. plus, we'd have to spread out so far between each car to avoid rock chips and to not drive in complete dust. I think a nice twisty asphalt road would be better.


also, can someone change the poll so we can vote for more than one option... cause i'd attend more than one of those.

The point of a poll is to find the most wanted option, no?
Put in your TOP pick, and if you would attend multiples, then you're lucky.

Multiple votes would skew the statistical combinations of the probable results with the finality of overinflated numbers.

also, i dont think it would skew, i think it would more accurately reflect what the general population is willing to do, therefore, giving a more accurate representation. i would think that the goal is to find the "most acceptable" option to the most amount of people to enable more people to show up, not to make sure that everyone is the happiest.

Not sylvan lake!!!  Has anyone been there in the summer?  It's CHAOS.  There's many places near Rocky Mountain House (and consequently CLOSE to Sylvan) that would be great.  Cow Lake (exit just east of Rocky) has a big group campsite and enough family stuff to keep folks entertained.  I was camping out there a few weeks ago and took the scenic route home, out past Nordegg and then south on 93 to hook up to 1 East back to Calgary.  Cow Lake isn't the greatest camp ground (its kind of a swamp haha), but it's a pretty great drive and would have more than enough room  for "super meet".  I just can't see 30+ Subaru's driving through Calgary-Like-Stop-And-Go-Traffic in Sylvan being any fun.  Just a thought.

i'd kinda prefer to avoid either of the big cities... less traffic means less getting stuck and separated during a cruise... even meeting inside a city and then leaving poses difficulties just going through traffic lights. We had issues meeting in red deer with that... so... maybe Sylvan would be better?
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Poll
Post by: ExHonda on July 13, 2009, 10:29:05 AM
Sylvan lake, in summer on a weekend is packed. Maybe if we plan on parking our cars and walking everywhere. Even at that I doubt there is going to be space anywhere for us to all park together. We are better off in a big city that had a big parking lot.

Post by: LilDrunkenSmurf on July 13, 2009, 10:40:24 AM
I'd really rather not drive all the way to edmonton for a cruise. I'm sure there are some guys on here who would, but frankly, anything further than Sylvan/Red Deer, and I would be out. What about the the lethbridge/medicine hat guys? I'm sure they don't want to go all the way up there. Calgary is probably pushing it for some of them.
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Poll
Post by: Sean on July 13, 2009, 10:41:55 AM
The only place packed in sylvan is lakeshore. If we show up on the north side of lakeshore at 10am we should be ok. Otherwise we could take it somewhere else there, and people can hit the beach after.

Extra foods or walmart on the edge of sylvan. The cruise nice and slow down lakeshore. Lots of people to see us :)

The Cold lake and Fort Mac crowd still have a longer drive to Edmonton than the Calgary guys. Also the Lethbridge/Medicine Hat folk should speak up then because I know last year we had a decent showing from CL/Fort Mac.

Jesus, I didn't realize it was that far.

Welp, I'll go depending on date/place, but I can't justify a 3 hour drive up, and a 3 hour drive back for a single day cruise kind of thing. My assay can't take that kind of punishment for a meet. =(
Title: Re: WSC Super Summer Meet - Poll
Post by: Zaider on July 13, 2009, 11:34:27 AM
Yep. I think for the Calgary guys, the drive up to Edmonton isn't a bad distance... considering how far others will have to drive, but i still think that organizing a cruise in a big city is a real pain in the assay, especially for those who dont know the city at all. You get dangerous driving as people try to keep up to the pack, as well as people getting separated by lights and getting lost. Why take on that headache? Besides, i'd much rather drive some country roads than go bumper to bumper.

Only thing with Sylvan lake is we have to be on our best behavior. I've heard of A LOT of car clubs getting harassed by the RCMP for doing stupid things (parking facing the wrong way, "revving" their exhausts too loudly etc).

When I was part of cobaltss.net I was going to head out to sylvan lake with them but I got stuck on call, I guess 1 guy parked facing the wrong way on a street and the RCMP started writing tickets for the entire club, making them remove tint, aftermarket/loud exhaust tickets, the whole 9 yards.

^^ Yeah, thats why its especially important for everyone to act in a legal and responsible manner. Even if we do, there's no guarantees they'll leave us alone, but it gives them the excuse to ignore us if they're having a good day.

Jutes you should probably also change the title of the post :).

For the Calgary guys we should meet up somewhere like the Deerfoot Parking lot and go together.

I think that might be a good idea. From the looks of it, not too many people can make it due to summer vacations, work, or like snackers, cone killing. In the previous years we had a host...Lightspeed for our meet with a BBQ set up and such. Can't have a meet with no food.

I think it would be a good idea to postpone this to a later date where more people can make it.

Im fine with then, as long as theres no events going on like a auto x or something because lots of people attend those. Maybe another vote for later dates in augest?

It seems everyone is very indecisive. Forget August. Lets plan it for mid-late September (weather is usually still good). So everyone can make or change plans accordingly. Final decision on which day should be made by the latest August 15th. Hopefully more people will be available in mid-late September.

Late August or September sounds great, It gives me more time to get my car back together so i don't have to show up in a Toyota.  As for location, Red Deer, Edmonton or maybe even camping near Canmore or Nordegg would be cool.  I bet if there was enough interest we could rent a whole campground or the majority of a campground for the weekend.

8th or 9th is out imo, as there's not enough notice to make plans.  I'd say it's now Aug 23 or later.

40 days, 14 pages - and still no decision.

I think if you're gonna start a big meet thread, someone (maybe the OP) should take a little initiative.

This is ridiculous LOL

I only started this thread because there wasn't anyone else who wanted to. Problem with this meet is, I didn't really get the feeling that anyone really cared. Everyone was pretty much split on the location and dates, so you'd have half the people should up with another percentage who would backout the last minute. Plus most of the senior members are either busy with vacation, work, autocross, etc. Also, you can't setup an Alberta-wide meet without a decent host like lightspeed or VEX and make it a multi-day event. Honestly, would anyone really drive 3-5 hours just to stand around in SL?

WTF? :P

Glenn, didn't you do that last meet in Red Deer?

Snackers and I worked on that one in Edmonton last year.


Listen, about all the indecisiveness, a large meet needs someone who just makes the decision and then sticks with it. Fact is, if given more than a few weeks notice, a lot of members will make the trip. Why? Because a) We love driving our cars, and b) with enough notice, you can plan around the meet if you're interested in going. Waiting around for everyone to agree is pointless because everyone is going to be busy at different times. Pick a date that's still a ways away and those who can make it, will. You'll get some people who complain that they can't make it, but that's always going to be the case.

Pick a date. Pick a location. If you really want to put it to a vote. Max 2 choices. Given too many choices, the vote gets too split up. Its like Canadian politics.

Post by: THE EDJ on July 30, 2009, 10:04:49 AM
Big events usually work better when the participants don't get a choice in when/where/etc.  The organizer picks a day, location, time.  If people want to come, they will be there, even if it means making sacrifices.

That's how big sporting events, concerts, festivals, etc. work.  If the event is important enough to me, I will be there regardless of when, where, or what time it is.

Maybe the WSC super meet doesn't compare the Stanley Cup finals or a big show at the Saddledome, but I'm willing to bet that there are more than a few people here who are willing to do what they need to do to be there!
