Date: Sunday October 24th 2010
Time: 1:00pm (~1:15pm departure)
Meeting Place: Dave & Busters Woodbridge (120 Interchange Way, L4K 5P7)

Let's get one last event in before the year's done. Similar route as to last year, which means lots of twisty roads and autumn scenery to enjoy. Here's a few photos I borrowed from 2009's photo thread (thanks Young Gun):

Important notes (actually read them!):
o This is a full day event, we will not return to the GTA until ~7-8pm.
o You will need a full tank of gas at the beginning of the cruise so fill up before coming to D&B.
o HAVE A VALID DRIVER'S LICENSE, CAR REGISTRATION, AND INSURANCE. OPP like to visit us on this cruise, and really only ticket for a lack of these basic items. Driving on bald tires is another easy ticket to get.
o Dinner is at approximately 5:30pm, and you will have the choice of two different restaurants to suit your budget and/or taste.
o There is a Sunoco (or Petro, it may have changed by now) near the dinner stop if you require 94 octane often (FI guys...).
o FRS radios will be used during this cruise, and are very helpful tools to have. Channels will be announced at the meeting spot.

That's about it for now. Click attending on the poll if you're joining us for this farewell to 2010. *th-up*

This cruise is one of my favourites. The fall colours and hours of twisty roads are a hell of a driving experience.

Do they just randomly pull people over , or start walking next to cars and inspecting them?

Just curious is all.

I will be there for sure, great roads and scenery!!

Im out of the country until the 20th and my car needs a thermostat and new brakes.. the current ones sound like gears grinding.

If I can order the parts online and install them after the 20th.. I'll be there!

If not, hope you guys have as much as we had last year! On second thought, maybe slightly less fun. ;) Let's avoid the chopper this time.

Hope this one is as epic, albeit without the OPP :)

So why the later start?

Mystikal
10-12-2010, 01:02 PM
So we don't need a lunch stop. That's the moment when the OPP had the time to set up road blocks, etc. We start at 1, the stops are brief, and we (hopefully) outrun the 5-0. ;)

there were two of them, did you remember which one it was?

10-24-2010, 11:28 PM
it was the white e36 m3... he pulled quickly to the shoulder to avoid a collision *th-up*

10-24-2010, 11:31 PM
Great route Jay! Thanks for organizing. I definitely wanna check out that again in dry conditions. Too bad I had to leave about 3/4 way thru - when you guys turned off hwy 11 into Gravenhurst, I veered left and continued on hwy 11 south. I didn't realize how far we were until I turned on my GPS.

Looking forward to some nice pics.....I know alot of you had cameras...so post away...

My buddy Craig has a few nice rolling shots that I'll post shortly...*th-up*

BMW_M_POWER

I avoided one as well, since everyone came to a sudden stop from 100 kph to 0 kph

and right after the turn one of the guys lost control

I dont think I missed anything.

Let me guess, everyone acted like an idiot on a wet road and didnt give 2 sh1ts about anyone.

I'm almost certain that it was even worse then the last one I attended, the midnight one, where all I heard was tires squeaking as some of the 15 year old retards entered the corners.

There fact there were no cops, opp's patrolling just made everything easier. The twisty roads were so much fun with barely any traffic at all. It was just a bit colder than last year since this cruise was more towards at the end of the month.

Quite the opposite actually. Everyone kept a distance, no one did illegal passing, no one got rear ended.

MUCH more civilized than the Midnight cruise.

This was my first cruise. And i loved it! I hung behind the 335i Coupe on the windy roads and most of the trip with the e46 M3 infront of him. Had so much fun. BTW ur 335i sounded nice n deep. I got to test my racelands. Quite impressed with them, predictable setup, kept me glued to the road. And not a chirp from my tires *th-up*
Thanks Jay!
BTW beautiful donut before 11 south *love* looked like you were dancing with ur car :P

Wow... I had a blast. It was great to finally get out and meet everyone. I kept thinking as we were all zipping around those great windy roads that you would never see a bunch of Benz drivers doing this... Lmao!
Its a shame it was my first one... now I have to wait for spring. I really enjoyed truly driving my car.
I was in front of the blue M3 and behind the 740 for most of the trip.
My son had a blast and definately wants me to bring him to another cruise...
