After many weeks talking to Mississauga Parks and Recreation dept. I am pleased to announce that we are (90% chance) getting permission to use a nice picturesque grass-filled island on the Credit River for the entire event. The bridge over is strong enough for cars and allows even the lowest rides to get on no problem. The dates available are:

-- Saturday Oct 2nd or
-- Saturday Oct 9th or
-- Sunday Oct 10th

Which date do you prefer? Keep in mind that some of our sponsors are open Saturday and would probably prefer to setup on the Sunday. A Saturday event allows us to pospone for the Sunday in case of rain. Also, due to the cost of the park I might have to charge $10/car (spectators remain free) for competitors (hoping this won't deter many from entering).

The cruize this year will take place before the event (like BimmerCruize '02) since last years' didn't work out too well. All the info will be posted shortly after the final details are worked out.

That would be a nice site ! I guess you can't release the actual spot eh ? Near a campus ? ;) Either date is good, but it's good to have a rain date because you never know.

Ya it woudl be good to schedule for the saturday and if it rains we can use the sunday as a backup

Either day is fine for me, i've never been since I just got the bimmer, i'll try to get some people to cruise up with me from my area, it's not far so we shall see

I just realized that OCT 3rd is a conflict with BMWCC Fall Fun Rallye (which I am organizing:D ). The dates will have to be:

-- Sat Oct 2nd
-- Sat Oct 9th
-- Sun Oct 10th

Do a saturday with sunday the rain date, its the best option just in case.

The city of Missy is a pain to deal with eh? They take so long.

I like the lazy Sunday afternoon setup, and more people here work on Saturdays than Sundays. The sponsors being available is just a bonus.

Sunday the 10th!

Oh, the 11th is Thanksgiving. Dammit.

Sunday...Sunday...Sunday...

Anyway, sounds like this could be very nice, with an appropriate back drop. And really 10 bucks to cruise in, no big deal. Sign me up.

I would say Sat the 9th since the thanksgiving weekend alost of people may not want to come out( family stuff). $10 is a good deal for a nice area and cruise.

Looks like it's going to take place on Sunday October 17th since the 10th weekend is Thanksgiving. Can't do it on the 2nd/3rd weekend because of a conflict with BMWCC event (I'm organizing aswell). Sorry Vito. I will have 100% confirmation soon once I hear a response from the City of Mississauga.

Since there seems to be confusion on the dates.... BimmerCruize '04 will take place on SUNDAY OCT 17th, 2004. Location is also changed to TOTOREDACA PARK which is at 2715 Meadowvale Blvd in Mississauga, ON, CANADA.

The new location sounds fantastic, but I'm surprised by the date change (I already scheduled the other week off as vacation :))
Either way, count me in still for sure, cruising or by tow'truck lol! (i'm kidding....hopefully :D)

this is a BMW event, I don't think your Honda can enter, you can bring the car but cannot enter for judging

Seriously, the majority of the cars don't have very extreme modifications at all, maybe a suspension upgrade here, some wheels there, nothing show-stopping. You won't feel out of place. Just make sure it's really clean inside and out. *th-up*

how does it work if you wanna bring your bmw but don't wanna enter it for show?

EMPOWERD
10-05-2004, 10:36 PM
3 options:

1) pay $15 to enter your car in the competition (concours or modified class)... swallow your pride by not winning, but receive a goodie-bag with a T-Shirt, stickers, samples, brochures etc...

2) park your BMW in the park for $5.00 with 200+ other BMW's, receive stickers and not have your car judged. Keep in mind that proceeds go the MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).

3) park your car (this applies to all non-BMW's) on the street or in a near by industrial building and walk to the show. I am working on letting the company adjacent to the park let us park there.

For more info on the show, please visit www.bimmercruise.com
