Update June-20-18: I have two awesome things to giveaway at our BBQ! First being a $25 Giftcard to AutoObessed (Edmonton) It can be used in-store and online! Second being an Audew mobile air pump! (It's this one here http://a.co/5CEA9B4). My plan will be to RAFFLE off these items at the BBQ event! So for each $5.00 donation we collect, you will be entered (1) time and receive a ticket! During the afternoon we will have someone draw two tickets from a hat to chose the winners! I would like to donate the funds raised to the Alberta Children's Hospital on behalf of WSC. You can read all the information here on the website: http://www.childrenshospital.ab.ca/site/PageNavigator/howtohelp/donate_landing

You can bring cash or e-transfer me directly at meets prior to the event OR at the event directly. Please e-transfer with me in person so I can give you your number ticket right away.


Date: SATURDAY JULY 7, 2018
Edmonton and Calgary Cruise Meet-Up: 9:00am
Edmonton and Calgary Cruise DEPARTURE: 9:30am
Edmonton & Calgary MEET in Red Deer: 11:00am
Edmonton & Calgary DEPART from Red Deer to Sylvan: 11:15am


This is a pot-luck style BBQ event! Please bring (1) item to contribute to the table of food! Burgers, buns, soda, water, chips, and other snacks, etc. are all good!!
Also bring folding lawn chairs! If you have any footballs/ frisbees/ games etc. bring those too!


Please comment within this thread if you can provide any of the above!

Please read the below details carefully. There will be planned cruise(s) departing from both Edmonton and Calgary the morning of the BBQ. There will be a pre-meet at determined locations, following a planned strictly speed-limit only cruise to Red Deer. From Red Deer we will depart to Sylvan Lake. We actually managed to mostly find parking in the main lot last year, there was lots of open space still by noon that day!



The Sylvan Lake BBQ Meetup (Final Location):
This is the destination where we will be cruising out to. Parking may NOT be "together."  There is street-parking and lot-parking along this entire area. Parking should not be an issue as long as people are patient.
Find parking and then come hangout for the BBQ! There is a large open green space in the area I've shown with many picnic benches, trash cans, and there are public washrooms a bit further down. The beach is also ofcourse right here. There was discussion in our other thread about not wanting to make this a "hard-parked" show n shine style event where we stand around in a mall parking lot under the beaming sun. Therefor; the effort I'm making is for this to be a fun "family-friendly" afternoon hanging out in the nice weather, enjoying some BBQ foods & drinks, and talking about Subi's or cars in general with friends who share the same interest! Expected arrival time from the cruises is early afternoon.

Unless it's the first option, I'll be out of the country. That being said... It's unlikely I'll be in town for that either

I see a cameo from the GBC civic in there 😂

It started the adventure... It did not finish it.

If I'm not working, I'll be here.

Would prefer if it wasn't July 7. Thats when my dad's birthday is. Any other date should be fine. (I voted for the following weekend)

So my damn friend went ahead and planned his birthday camping trip for july 13-15, which is what I voted for, and I can't change my vote 😑
(His birthday is June 20th, So i thought he would plan his birthday weekend closer to that time lol)

The system doesn't allow me to modify the poll settings, to allow vote changes unfortunately.

What date do you want? You mentioned not July 7 and now not July 14 so just let me know which of the other options and I can just keep the number in mind when I look at the votes and the top date is chosen.

It's looking like July 7 is going to most likely be the date. I think a lot of people don't vote and still show up anyways whatever day it is.

July 8 or any other date would work. I will play it by ear and see what happens.

Same same. July 8th sounds good. I originally voted for the 7th but can't take it back now so the poll looks a more biased than it actually is.

Should we want to reset the Poll?  Cuz if that's 2 people then it comes to 8 - 4 between the Sat. vs Sun.  The Sat. still wins at this moment though.

If you do reset the poll, throw in a mid June option.. It's the only way I'll make it  ;)

Voted June 30th because I have the family cabin booked that weekend. Last year I just did a creeper walk by but this year I could potentially come for the cruise out to Sylvan as well.
