Mods, please make this a sticky.

Hi guys and Gals,

Paul C and I had discussed nearly two years ago, the possibility of organizing a cruise between you the TO guys and us from the cold Capital. I thought it was a good idea and promised to organize it. I spoke with Bruce earlier running the idea by him and he is in with it.

Here is the plan copied from our forum and the link to it in case you want to follow up on how we are coming up with plans on our end.
Please feel free to chime in with your ideas.

Raph.

Guys, I know it's a bit early to be discussing this, but it will make winter go by faster :D
I have been approached by a few guys for us to organize some Summer Touring events. These were mainly local guys, but the Toronto Bimmerheads have been asking me to organize an event in Kingston. We can call it the Midway or Midpoint Tour :D

What I proposed is that we do a tour from Ottawa, and the TO guys of course from TO meeting in Kingston as the destination point. From there we can do a nice big combined short cruise to a great spot close to the water for a photo session.

We fly model airplanes at the Kingston Giant RC event and use a little motel off of Wilton Road to sleep over. I nicknamed the motel The Wilton Hilton which is a great little clean motel with great rates.

I can look into a group rate at The Wilton Hilton so that we can have a big sleep over. We can make a big camp fire and have a BBQ in the evening, have a few pints, sleep, hang out a bit more on Sunday, maybe do another short combined cruise and then head back to our respective Cities.

It will be the first for such an event and the TO guys, I am sure in great numbers, are looking forward to this.

We have to start planning this soon so that we can facilitate everyones schedule and get all the aspects of the agenda sorted out.
I am posting this in both the local and other event forums so everyone can see this.
We are looking at mid June to mid July tentatively as the time frame to do it.
Please feel free to chime in with your views.

Raph.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for registering on TRF so we all can coordinate this together. Mid July sounds good for the event so we can facilitate students. I will edit the announcement so to reflect this suggested date.

Hound, spreading the word on the other sites is a great idea, thanks for doing that.

You guys have a much bigger BMW group up there so it would take a bit more work to get everyone informed.

I am not sure how many of Max members actually visit the events forum so it might be a good idea to to place a link on Max popular forums.

Thanks again guys,

Raph.

Striker

Hmmmm seems as though we can't edit posts a day old on Max any more.

We are looking at mid July as a tentative time frame in which we should have the event.

We have to look into the following:

1. Departure point we have to assemble at, departure time and estimated arrival time in Kingston

2. Route to Kingston

3. Meeting point in Kingston, I can contact a few people there to find a big suitable spot.

4. Photo shoot spot

5. Cruise route to photo shoot spot

6. Accommodation at the Wilton Hilton (motel) and rates.

7. Agenda for the evening, food, drinks, music and whatever else makes you guys rev

8. Sunday's breakfast, maybe a local Timmies, we have to notify them about the group so that they will be able to cater for our needs and not run out of coffee :D

9. Sunday's cruise route and destination point.

10. Sunday's lunch

11. Departure time

If you guys have any other aspects of the plan you would like to have addressed and catered for, please indicate.

Thanks,

Raph.

Another good idea would be to camp if some people prefer the outdoors. It would be mid July so nice and warm.
Maybe we can find a camp ground close to the motel.

Let me know your views on this please.

Raph.

Camping is a good idea man, what is this site that you are talking about, I can sign up there. I will try and generate as much interest as I can. I know the hammer guys were interested before so I will let them know.

I was waiting to see the first perv addict to see that :P

I have to remember to sleep with one eye open :D

You guys made me remember what we did with egg white to a dude who got drunk at a camp. Oh well, he still thinks one of the guys in the camp who was a crazy character had "fun" with him.

He never came back to camp with us regardless how much we begged, the good fun days.

lol^ good one, yes keep one eye open man, us T.dot guys can be messed up sometimes hahaha.

One time paul ant118 and I were up in barrie, it was like 4am headed out of town. Ant was in the back seat passed out we drove by a place that had a sprinkler shooting well out onto the road so much so that it hit the car, paul got the idea that we should turn around and get ant with it HAHA. So i did, turned around as we were driving past it again I opened the window all the way and he got quite the "rude awakening" LOL it was jokes cause he work up told us we were retarded and passed out again good times guys, look forward to more up in barrie again this year HAHA

Just the fun you can have at events etc. It remains in your memory and you can look back and laugh about the crazy, harmless stuff you had fun doing.

Too often we see people doing all the wrong stuff for fun these days, like destroying peoples property, burning drunk buddies, drugging girls to death, so the clean fun stuff man is good.

Seeing that you are in Ottawa, why not join our forum and hop on board for the trip?

We will be planning some meets at a few Timmies soon as well so we can get out in winter too.

I'll actually be back in the t.dot area when that trip will go down but I will certainly be joining the T.dot dudes making the trip. I'm a student @ Ottawa U so I'm back and forth. As for your timmies meets...yea sure why not...I'll come out one of these days!

Ah don't worry about it Hound, she apologized and admitted she did not read between the lines.
Sometimes we are too hasty to post after reading something quickly. I have responded many times to posts and after reading what I wrote I delete it just to avoid a thread war.

Easier said than done Paul, unfortunatly I can be called upon somewhat last minute to fly out of country for business, so it's kinda hard to plan this far in advance without specifically knowing the exact date. But trust me, if I can make it I definitly will, hell most of the time I'm one of the only ones that does make it, everyone else always backs out*shiner*

Hound, for sure man. I definitly want to see the new E32 of yours...freaking sexy man!*th-up* You didn't have it last time I was down in T.O

I am not sure if there is a Kingston BMW forum as well, I did a search, no results. I am sure most of the Kingston BMW owners are on Max, so if anyone know how to make contact with these guys, please do so and inform them about our plans.

That would be awesome, imagine a 3 City combined BMW Meet/Cruise/Tour.
