WSC Sylvan Lake 2019 BBQ & Cruise - Saturday July 6, 2019
« on: January 29, 2019, 12:49:42 PM »
Current Status: I will update the top section of this thread with recent information. I'm posting this thread quite early this year to provide advance notice of a firm date, that way people can arrange their schedule and we don't have to 'vote' on dates. I hope to see everyone there!

Please don't bring macaroni salad this year ;D We literally had 10 containers of it last year. I know it's the easiest thing to bring, but we literally wasted sooo much of it last year and someone said it was my fault, so this is my fair warning!!

THEY IMPLEMENTED PAID PARKING LAST YEAR. $2.00/ hour; $10.00/ day.  CREDIT CARD / COINS ACCEPTED ONLY. No ATM.


TL;DR - Same plan as the past few years.

Date: SATURDAY JULY 6, 2019
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.

I will most definitely be coming this year! I have gotten a few friends of mine into the car/Subaru scene over the past 6 or so months so it'll be cool to bring em around.

Not to mention, I still haven't met most of you guys.

I may make it up this year, considering this does not fall on my dad's exact birthday this year...
