Buffalo to Lakeview ON?

Theres some talk of a meet in the Ontario section at Lakeview park, just on the otherside of the lake,checking to see if anyone from the Buffalo/Rochester Area would be down to go? So far its looking like May 11th, starting around 11AM EST. Its a 2 hr trip there from Buffalo, according to google maps, so im sure thats 1.5 hrs in G8'er time I think it would be cool to go cruise up there from a central location around here (Buffalo) and get to hang out with some of the other guys on the forum. Would be like a mini GONE meet for the east coast guys haha

Do it guys! Last year I had 10 of us in a fall meet and we're on pace to beat that this year (I know not that many compared to you guys)! It'd awesome to have some US representation as well. I'd be up for another meet down your way later on sometime as well, as I'm sure some of the other guys.

Also subscribed... I did join several Canadian G8ers a few years ago for the St Catherines "All GM show" where I also got a tour of their engine plant, was amazing.

After going to g8gone.com in 2012, my daily driver is ready for cool "closer by" shows like this one. Nice post, rmc!

Looking forward to area car shows and events summer of 2013!

Thanks for doing that! id like to get as many as possible to go there,the more the merry-er! Also, I agree, maybe we can get Zepcom Performance on the map..in multiple countries lol I was advised on the other thread, we should be there by 11am, so maybe just as a central location, we should meet at the Seneca Niagara Casino parking lot and head out by 9:30am?

So here it is, taken from the other thread..Quote:
The main meet will be at 2:00 PM at the entrance to Lakeview Park, Oshawa. As Les mentioned, take the 401 to Simcoe Street in Oshawa, south on Simcoe down to Lakeview Park Drive. Here it is on Google Maps... http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&sug...-8&sa=N&tab=wl

Overall, there are 5 parking lots to chose from (4 are in the park and one more just East of it). For now, we'll go with the lot at the entrance (West side of Simcoe), but decide which parking lot to take over once we arrive.

The earlier arrival (11:00 AM) is more of an optional thing for those who would like to get help with (or just watch) some mods or to just have more of a full-day experience. There seems to be a fair bit of interest in this, but again, if you can only make one part of the day, hopefully that will be at 2:00 so we have everyone together at once for the best looking photos/vids/cruise possible. Les and I will determine/announce the location of the 11:00 'mod session' soon.

only 56 more sleeps, kids!

Alright everyone, get your Passport cards, just picked mine up Friday, only $55! Saturday May 11th looks like we're planning on meeting up at Lakeview Park around 11am, and that where they will be doing mod's so it would be nice to hang around and help, watch, or get help on future mods. My plans we're to meet at Seneca Niagara Casino at 9 and book it to the border at 9:15 then take a nice little cruise to Lakeview and probably get there by 11am. Here is what i copy and pasted from the Canada thread Entitled Lakeview Meet-11 May..you should subscribe to that one too.

So general plan:

Date: 11 May @ 1400hrs (2pm for you people who don't know 24hr time)
Location: Lakeview, OshawaWe definiately need to go for another cruise as well.
As well SubLimeGT has offered up a BBQ at his place.

Can't promise I'm 100% in but am gonna try. I got court on the 8th which I assume will be a couple hundred bucks and if my funds allow it ,I'm in.
