Default EVENT: Anyone want to meet for some drag racing/picnic?

I would really like to meet some CL members for some racing and socializing. I spend quite a few nights at St.Thomas dragway near London, Ontario. I think it's a good meeting place...about in the middle between Detroit/Windsor and TO. St. Thomas is also great beacsue it's cheap..only $15 for as much racing as you want on Fridays nites, and $20 for Saturday nite. Both nites race from 6-10pm. If people want to just show up and race on a Friday nite, please let me know. If people want a more "family" type thing, we can find a park, have a picnic or BBQ, then head to the races afterward...obviously the 2nd option would have to be on a Saturday, unless people don't want to actually race and just WATCH a race. I see on the 19th of Sept. (sunday) there is some kind of sport compact racing event. My preference would include us racing. If no one has ever been to a track, it's great fun. Now I'm sure everyone will have a preference for a day...but to give everyone enough notice, maybe we can make it the 1st or 2nd week of Sept. for the family event...But I am willing and ready to go any Friday if anyone wants to go and just race and hang out. I am frequently there 3 or 4 times per month. Anyone interested??? Start throwing out your ideas!!

The second week of September would work for me!

I would prefer the family type event with a picnic and BBQ. Is there a park we can go to and do a BBQ? I would bring my family with me (my sons are crazy about cars and I cannot exclude them - they are 5 and 7 years old).

We could always go to the races afterwards! Hopefully I will have my TC installed by then!

I will send a PM to all the Canadian members I know to look at this thread. Hopefully we can get some real participation here this year!

Hameed,

We had a BBQ at the track before. Pretty "family" friendly track to be honest. Dogs are allowed too. But if you want a "real" park for the BBQ, let me know...

There's very little love up here in the great white north! Only 2 members responded to my PM's!

So that means only three folk are interested in this event...........

I would like to be able to take some pics against a nice backdrop. Maybe a real park would have some nice locations to take pics of all of our cars?

Hammed,

Here are a couple of nearby parks...there is a 3rd I'm thinking about, but can't remember the name...has like 2000 meters of beach. Nice place. But here are 2 nearby:

http://www.elgintourist.com/stthomas/waterworks.shtml

http://www.elgintourist.com/stthomas/pinafore.shtml

Let me know if either of these appeal to you.


I figured since the racing starts at 10am, we could race till say...2pm. Then head to the picnic area and chill out. Sound good? Anyone else have thoughts on this??

Default Hamilton, maybe?

Hey Guys,

Another Canadian SC400 owner here...
Would anyone object meeting in Hamilton?
I'm in Scarborough, so places such as London is a bit of a haul for me...

Varune.
