Annual SSOOO Niagara Run
Saturday, August 29th, 2015

Calling all Kappas. Our annual SSOOO Niagara run is a go. Jackl will be posting start time, meet up location and route shortly. Block the date and if you are planning to stay overnight, here are the preferred SSOOO hotel deals.

There are three hotel options for this year. You can book as of Monday May 11th on.

1) Sheraton on the Falls
Cityview - $259.00
Fallsview - $299.00

2) Crowne Plaza (Right next door)
Traditional - $239.00
Fallsview - $279.00

3) Skyline Inn - across from Casino Niagara. No falls view - $249.95 traditional room.

In addition to these prices are 3.8% Promotion Fee and 13% HST.
Final add on is $9.95 - Resorts Services Package – includes WiFi, unlimited long distance and local telephone calls (USA or Canada) and a bunch of other stuff. This $9.95 add on does not apply to the Skyline. Just the Sheraton and Crowne.

You have until July 28th to book. After that you will pay full rate.
Call 1-800-519-9911 and request special rate for Solstice Sky Owners of Ontario (SSOOO). Should you need to cancel, you can up to 72 hours prior without penalty.

Dinner will be at The Hard Rock Cafe Club – Private Room – 6pm to 9pm - same as last year.

Will have reserved parking area ($25.00) on 6th or 7th floor – same as last year.

If you are planning on attending please respond as follows:

Number attending:
Reserved Parking ($25.00) in the "Kappa Koral":
Attending Group Lunch on the route:
Attending Group Dinner at Hard Rock Club 6pm:
Staying Overnight:

The way this works every year is we have lunch along the way and stop at a winery. We usually arrive around 3pm in Niagara Falls. This gives you a couple of hours to walk to the Falls and take in the sites. The parking rate of $25.00 is in line with any parking area that is close to the Falls. Our spot is very close. The Hotels are expensive as we are on a Saturday night in their busiest season.

One year I'm going to be able to attend this event. This year, just like the past, there is a conflict. I'm putting on an event here in MI on that date. You all have fun!

UPDATE: Tues August 25

UPDATE: Tuesday August 25

Gareth (Northern Sol) and I (jack) did the pre-run this morning and found numerous 'road improvements' happening in the St. Catherines portion of the route. Due to this the road (Lakeshore) where Bugsy's Restaurant is located is torn up... stones, dirt, holes, raised manholes are everywhere... An a new route is planned through St. Catherines.

The lunch restaurant Butlers Grill will be confirmed tomorrow (manager was not in this morning) is a similar roadhouse restaurant to Bugsy's. It is located about 4 blocks into the Niagara on the Lake, across from the Tim Hortons.

Address is: 284 Mary Street, NOTL -
Butler's Bar and Grill - Niagara-on-the-Lake

We will confirm this Wednesday...

As a result of the construction will be going to Inniskillin Winery for tasting and purchasing after lunch. Located just off the Niagara Parkway and they have a large parking area (4X that of the Konzelmans).

Inniskillin Wines is located at 1499 Line #3 at the Niagara Parkway, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON L0S1J0

Inniskillin

More info will be posted Wednesday.

Butler's Bar and Grill - Niagara-on-the-Lake
Great food - home of the best pizza and wings in Niagara-on-the-lake. Pool tables, darts, and big screen TVs

Might hook up with you guys when you get into town. When do you expect to come through? A few years ago I hooked up with you when you came down the escarpment in Grimsby if I remember right

Hope you can make it. I remember the time you were waiting for us. It was the first run I did with SSOOO. I have your email. Will reach out to Jackl and try to get a hook up time for Grimsby. Be back to you.
