WSC 2009 Summer Meet - Aug 23, 2009
« on: July 30, 2009, 12:06:10 PM »
This thread will get very big, so please refer back to this original post for any details. I will update as required.
Also, please read this entire first post. I will update it if multiple similar questions are asked, so that you don't have to read 14 pages, and then post the same question for the 42nd time.

This year's WSC Summer Supermeet will be at Vex Performance in Red deer, August 23, 2009, beginning at noon.



Minor details are subject to change, but the date and location are set.

Noon-ish - Arrive at Vex. BBQ to begin at or shortly after noon.
Noon - 1600hrs-ish - Stand around and gawk at some metal on wheels. Boring eh? Nope. We all like to stand around our cars, and talk about them. Or, stand around our cars, and talk about absolutely nothing related to cars. Most of us have done this at at least 1 wing meet. Stand around for hours, even after just spending the last 2-3 hours talking to everyone at the table with wings.
1630-1700-ish - Leave Vex, "cruise" down Gaetz Ave to Westerner Park (link below for location).
1730-ish - Arrive at Westerner Park for photoshoot - lineup TBD ahead of time, so that the pics don't look exactly the same as the earlier meet this year.
Westerner is actually beside the C on the map. So turn in before.



Some further details:

There will be a BBQ (burgers, dogs, etc). These events get expensive, so there will be a nominal charge (1-2 bucks) for burgers and pop. I hope this doesn't fluster anyone, but I agreed with this because I don't believe the host should have to front this cost entirely. Also, the alternative is to eat at a restaurant. 1-2 bucks is pretty cheap compared to 15-20 at a restaurant. Also, finding a restaurant to hold a group this big is a pain (ask me how I know).
Update - Vegan burgers to be provided as well.

There is a CSCC autox tentatively scheduled for Aug 22 (Saturday). If this event is a go, then perhaps a stay overnight is warranted, and much fun could be had in an establishment that provides beverages.
I will see if I can finger out a deal with a hotel somewhere, and post the details here when it is worked out. When you post if you are attending, and how many guests (see below), please post if you wish to stay overnight, so that I can give numbers to the hotel and get us a deal. Once the hotel is picked (if a hotel is picked) I will post details and leave it up to you to do the actual booking.

This will be considered a Family Event. If you wish to bring children, please let me know ahead of time. Vex is willing to put on some cartoons in the shop for those non-car interested children (Tho why you haven't already disowned these children is beyond me), but we need to know ahead of time to ensure the setup will accommodate all.

Note: Shirts are being made. No further orders will be taken. There will be a few extras at the meet, first come first serve.

FINAL SHIRT PRICING!!

Shirts are $20 cash, cause our parts guy is paying for them, we aren't putting them through the shop.
they have a big WSC SUPERMEET logo on the back, WSC and Scott Subaru on the right sleeve, and VEX Performance down the left front.
they are black.

Hoodies, are similar, a little different, and are $50 (now I know why I don't wear hoodies!) haha made one for one of our techs that only likes hoodies, even in summer.  so the design is done if anyone else wants one.

if something happens and you miss the meet, we would still like you to have someone pick the shirt up for you, thanks!
if you want one after the list closes, you will have to call Jay at VEX directly, and he may be able to squeeze in one more for you, but don't post here.
Jay's number there is 403.309.2258

NEW OFFICIAL SHIRT PRICING!!!
ok, so it was $20,
However Scott Subaru who was sponsoring us with some swag, and use of their BBQ has ALSO offered to offset the cost of the T-Shirts!!!
so the new Price thanks to Scott Subaru, is $15
A huge thanks to Scott Subaru!

Because this is a Sunday, I understand people will want to get home at a reasonable time in the evening (school night and all), so depending on how things progress, the above times may change.

If there are suggestions, comments, concerns, questions, I don't care.

Kidding. Please post them here, or PM me.
Also, please post if you are attending, and the number of guests. We need an approximate count for food, and just to figure out how big the group will be.

I have to be at a post-wedding function on this day but am unsure about what time I need to be there but I am definitely going to try and make this.  Props to VEX again for hosting again btw.

Thanks a lot to VEX for hosting this event.

I'll be there.

About a week before the event, I'll start a thread for those Calgary member's wanting to Convoy up together. Just like last time, we'll be meeting at Deerfoot Outlet Mall in the NE and probably leave at about 10-10:15am. We'll cruise up at the speed limit and be there for around noon.
Go home Subaru. You're drunk.

I'll be there.

May I suggest that the cruise in or outside of red deer not include any lights this time?
And if there are lights, have a wait period after to regroup again?
And how about the photo lineup be like a spectrum...  say from Black to red to blue that sort of thing?

Well, we will need to get out of red deer to start the cruise, and then back into red deer to get to the westerner.
So lights will be unavoidable in some places.

However, that is why I said once the route is planned, I will post it on google maps to be printed. This way if/when people get lost, they can meet us at the next point.
Or, we travel in smaller groups.
5-10 cars take off. Wait a few mins. Another 5-10 cars take off.

60-70 cars will get broken up into groups anyways just by lights, traffic, and the way people drive.
If we keep the groups smaller, with at least one person who knows where they are going, there might be less of a chance to get lost.

Why not just have the group pull off to the side of the road after the last light to let everyone catch up.  It wasn't a lot of fun being in a group of 5-7 cars last time.

Well, depending on the road, this may not be possible.
But, I'm not from Ded Reer.

The route hasn't been planned yet. Do you want to do it?
You'll know of better places to stop and wait than I will.

I'm happy to take suggestions for a good cruise route.

If you head north from Vex, you can turn right at one light, and then all stop along the side of the road after the 11A/2A lights, heading either west on 11A or north on 2A and there will be no more lights.

For example, take 11A out to poplar ridge road, then down into burnt lake, right to the fas gas lights at Hwy 11, and once that turns green you should all be able to make it onto 11, and then hit the highway down to the westerner exit.

The only thing I don't like about your suggestion Sean, is that a large portion of it is on Hwy 2.
On a Sunday, I predict lots of traffic on Hwy2. Maybe that isn't a concern?

I believe this is similar to the one we had before, except it started at Costco instead of Vex, and went in the opposite direction.

Ignore the little thing in the middle that comes back on hwy 11 then hwy2.

1630-1700-ish - Arrive at Westerner Park for photoshoot - lineup TBD ahead of time, so that the pics don't look exactly the same as the earlier meet this year.

I'm in!

Lets make sure to have the sun behind the photographers & not behind the cars. :P

Looking forward to the convoy up, I even bought some two way radios the other week.
