So does anyone else feel a bit... what is the word..... dedicated?

Spending 3 hours polishing up the Sol to drive into an 81% chance of thunder storms in Niagara tomorrow...

Well, it looks sweet tonight :-)

Hope to meet up with the group in St Kit's at 1:00pm.

I will be driving the Solstice ;-)

Yes, the Hard Rock Cafe, we have the room from 5:30. I'll PM you my phone number so you can text or call me is you need more info as the others are at the meeting point in Toronto and about to leave.
I am meeting them at the bottom of Thirty road between Beamsville and Grimsby after they come down the escarpment about 11:00. The channel they are using on the FRS radios is 7.

Hope to see you there.

Dinner is in the Hard Rock Cafe not the Hard Rock Club. We had to move to the restaurant due to people cancelling because of the rain that barely happened. When you get there just say you are part of Solstice Sky Owners of Ontario. There are 12 of us for dinner and drinks so come join us.

No plans yet, there has been a bit of chatter, but not much else at the moment

I have stepped down from co-organizing with Jackl. Moving to Windsor at end of May. Jackl has retired after 10 very dedicated years. Hoping some new organizers step up......??????

Ok I will bite :-)

While I am new to the group, only participating in the second half of last falls run, I would love to help see this event continue!
I have a few constraints though;
- I will be in the Mediterranean April 13 - May 6th
- I do not expected my car to be back on the road until June 1st (darn Drive-Clean!)
- I have no experience in setting up a cruise / rally such as this...

But I can bring the the plans
- a decent knowledge of Halton Region and surrounding area ( possible route / scheduled with good photo opportunities)
- a decent skill set with mapping / routing
- enthusiasm and a desire to meet up again with like Kappa Owners for a day.

Is there any interest in an event for June?
I was thinking a route similar to last falls Halton Hills to Niagara (keep it simple)

Garth and Jack, if this is a go, it would be great if you could provide electronic copies of your planning material.
And of course, it would be great if you were able to make the run as participants.

If anyone is in to helping out,,, Great!
Let me know, and lets see if this can go anywhere.

Craig

Have responded over on FB as well. A few of us are going to Lexington in June. Therefore I would suggest July or August for a run.
Glad you are stepping up and once I am through the move and Lexington then I would hopefully be able to join in.
Cheers,
Gareth
