View Full Version : Midnight Cruise 2011 Part 1: Friday June 17th (GTA) RAIN DATE IN EFFECT

Date: Friday June 17th, 2011 (Rain Date in effect)
Time: 10pm meet start - cruise starts AFTER midnight
Meeting Place: La Paloma, Woodbridge
Directions: See Friday night meet thread here (http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69352).

And here goes one of the more popular meets...Midnight Cruise. I started this event in 2004 and about 30 cars showed...by 2005 it was closing in on 100. We haven't looked back since.

Have gas, be sober, carry an FRS radio if you have, pay attention to what's going on in front of you, don't drive like an idiot (especially where the general public is watching...) and stay behind the slightly queer M Roadster. Follow these rules and you'll have a great time. We should be done around 3am or so.

No attendee list, just click on the poll up top if you're down. See you insomniacs there.

Last summer's was incredible, especially those extra passes we did at the end of the night. Driving into the sunrise on the right side and darkness on the left a small group was priceless. Too bad I'll miss this one :(

No cruise tonight.

Weather isn't cooperating, according to the weather network and accuweather there's 70-80% chance of rain starting at midnight for every town we'll be driving through. Next week it is, and that date is rain or shine. I'll update the thread details now.

The forecast has been changing the last few days from no rain, to scattered showers on Friday, but the forecast for Saturday has been sunny and warm so far without change, and since the cruise starts at midnight on Friday I'm hoping the Saturday forecast will be in effect.

It was a pretty good cruise....no incidents but a few questionable decisions.

I was also in the pack that got lost and then it got worse because 2 of us got left behind on a red light, then caught up to a silver m3 that was also lost. We all just decided to head home as the 401 was just up the road.

It was nice seeing some old faces and meeting some new ones. A lot of nice cars out there.

Saw some friends from high school that I haven't seen in almost 10 years. *th-up*

The cruise itself was decent, but I was in one of the packs that got lost & no one knew where to go; then that group was split up by a red light and we got no replies on the FRS (possibly out of range). Searched around but eventually that smaller group gave up & went home.

Maybe next time let's do handouts again or one suggestion - give out the postal code of the mid-way meeting point so we can punch it in our GPS if some get lost.

Good idea, split ups are destined to happen with all the stop lights.
