Due to the busy weekend that I originally planned I changed it to Saturday June 22nd . Sorry for all the confusion guys! I will post the events for the day now and then another post in this thread for the menu. Cool? Good!

1st - Meet @ Square One Mall near Sega City from 11am to 12:00pm (pic and vid oppertunity). The parking at Sega City is pretty small. The north-west parking lot at square one is pretty big and usually not busy. This is at the south-east corner of rathburn and Duke of York Blvd. And if possible please gas up the night before!

2nd - Do a head count and then leave Square One Mall no later than 12:15pm! Get on the 403 West to QEW Hamilton which turns into QEW Niagara (pics and vids on the way). Now I want to get this clear right now...NO RACING! This is a cruise and we don't need any unnecessary attention! 120km/h and under please!

3rd - On the QEW Niagara we will pull off on Niagara Stone Rd. Exit. Go over the bridge and first lights (about 400m) go left on York Rd. Once on York Rd. there will be a Sunoco gas station on the left side of the road (need gas here is your oppertunity!). We will wait there and do a head count to see if we have lost anyone.

4th - Now to Boston Pizza for lunch. Back on the QEW Niagara to Thorold Stone Rd. and go EAST (left). Follow Thorold Stone Rd. to the first set of lights and turn RIGHT on to Dorchester Rd. Follow Dorchester Rd. to Morrison St. (2nd light) and turn right. Trust me you can't miss it. MMMMMMmmmm food!!!

5th - Now after lunch we will cruise around Niagara for abit (detailed maps will be handed out) then stop at Duffern Islands for lots of pics and video! After we get bored of that we now cruise along the Niagara Parkway to Niagara-On-The-Lake. Chill there for abit and head back the same way and hit up Queenston Park were we can decide if we want to go to Hutches at Hamilton Beaches (Great suggestion by M5_fanatic!).

So here is a quick recap!

1st - Meet @ Square One Mall
2nd - Leave no later than 12:15pm!
3rd - Stop at Sunoco for head count and gas
4th - Boston pizza lunch
5th - Cruise time

Now the next post will be the deal I got from Boston Pizza (good selection and great price!).

Does anyone live in the North York area?
Cuz if I can go THIS TIME, then I really need to hitch a ride
off of someone.
MTRD and Gamite, I don't know if you guys are willing to drive
all the way to my area first and all the way back to
Square 1 Mall.

Anyways i'm in the York Mills and Lesile area.

Gamite

Well I will have to say around 1:15pm to no later than 1:45pm. Traffic shouldn't be too bad.

Dave

BTW - Has anyone driven the 403 to Hamilton on a Saturday around noon? What was the traffic like?

06-12-2002, 06:17 PM
Just pray for no accidents... it can be a slog across the 403 sometimes. Usually won't drop below 50km/h though.

Kevin,

Shure you can join! The more the better! If you have any friends that wish to tag along thats cool too! I have maps for 35 people (if there is more than 35 cars then we will have to pair up) so don't worry about getting lost.

See you at Square One Mall @ 11am!,
Dave

It's 7:35am and I just got my ass out of bed. Just checked www.theweathernetwork.com and there is a slight chance of rain. :( Well I hope that a little water will not scare away our hardcore maXbimmer members! And trust me guys your car will not melt away! So get your butt down to Square One Mall no later than 12pm!

See ya soon,
Dave

BTW - Don't forget the digital cameras, video cameras, 2 way radios, and the most important thing gas up!
