Hey gang ! This thread is open to all members who would have interest in getting together this summer.

I've been contemplating our first get together for the year ( for us w.n.y guys anyway). For most of us its been since last summer when we got together. There was the Lakeview meet recently that a few of us had made it to and was sweet. 44 g8s and everyone was friendly and cool as can be. Hopefully we will get some of our Canadian brethren to come this way at least once this year, some of them have expressed interest in doing so. Some nice g8s !

Recently there was a thread posted in the Canadian section to do a meet and cruise around the Clifton hill , Niagara Falls Canada area , which wouldn't be as far as the Lakeview meet was. Date is set for the 29th of June ( a Sunday) . Sorry but I don't know how to link the thread to it for details. If you do have interest , please post to that thread. I'm thinking if that is a go , we can meet up then and enjoy the day with the Canadian guys. Gotta say that so far it isn't looking good for that venue. So far it's possibly two of us from the Buffalo area. I figured I'd start this thread in the northeast section to see if I could drum up some more numbers for it.

If the Canadian meet is a no go, then we could try and get something going on the U.S. side of the border. There is one event , which is the jaq4all car show in I believe August but felt we could schedule a meet up sooner ,nothing all day or crazy. Open to dates, availability and ideas on where to go?

I'd like to see the jaq4all event to be a big one for turnouts . It's a cancer benefit and proceeds would go to roswell park cancer Institute. There is a cruise after the show to roswell to present them with a check.
It hits home for a few of us. Zepcom is close to the family that lost their daughter to cancer and whom they named the event in honor of and I have had family members with breast cancer , so it's more then just a car show for some of us . When I get more details on the event, I'll post it here but assume there may be a thread just for that show by zepcom. It's still early for that event and the organizers of the show haven't given info for this year yet.

If any g8board members want to be included in that show , please join in. Would love to beat the 44 g8 marker that I recently went to , and see some new faces. The car show has been in the morning (we get there at 9) and goes till the middle of the afternoon with the ride to roswell after. Roswell park isn't far from the anchor bar (home of the chicken wing), literally down the road five minutes, that if we wanted to do that after the check presentation , it would be close by. BUFFALO CHICKEN WINGS ! Assuming the itinerary is the same as last year that is . They did have food at the car show last year and assume they will this year too.

So W.n.y. guys and others please chime in. Let me know who's interested in either:

*Locals and anyone who's not to far and want to meet up in Canada on the 29th or in the area in the U.S. in late June .

* any board members who want to meet up in august for the jaq4all car show, cruise and maybe chicken wing run .

guess I'll ask that we start a list for the car show and local u.s. meet only and have members go to the other thread to continue their list. No reason to have 2 lists going for the same thing.

I might make the 29th meet but would be interested in attending a meet in the Buffalo area. If it's before August that would be fine too.

Nice intro, Poni.

Here's the website for the Jacquie4All car show - Hasn't been updated yet for 2014, but this is the info from last year's event.

Also worth including is the end-of-summer show at Olcott beach, NY. It's right on lake Ontario, you can see Toronto across the pond. That should be a good one for the Canadians to try and make -- it's a huge event with multiple hundreds of cars, it would be cool to represent some flavors of the G8 community there, we could all cruise in together so we get our own section. Only negative about this place is due to the size of the event, you need to get there EARLY to get any good spots...

Here's the link that shows information from last years Olcott Beach show, with details to follow soon I would think for the 2014 version.

This summer has been fantastic so far, and I had a great time at the Canadian meet as well! Looking forward to a few good shows to hang out with fellow G8 owners!

I'm from Syracuse and would be up for a buffalo meet. I know of a few g8 guys in Rochester area that would be up for the idea as well (they're not g8board members). And if a Canada get-together happens and its worth the drive id be up for a little road trip as well! A g8 gathering would be a first for me.

Thanks very much Zep and thanks for adding the links. I understand that as of now ,with the exception of the Canadian meet , everything else is vague with not having exact dates and times for the other events. Making it hard for people to say if they can make it or not. At least the links will give people an idea . I forgot about Olcott .

The Canadian meet for the 29th is up to 4 definite out of 9 signed up as of today.

Ben kenobi ,if you are wanting to do both then sweet . Just make sure you sign up for the 29th in the Canadian section so they know you have interest.

LiquidRedGT, that's great and the more the marrier. Definitely not necessary to be a board member to attend. Given that Jacquie4all is a show, I'd say anymore who wants to partake (I.e. vettes and Camaros) can. There are a couple Rochester members I keep in touch with here and hope they can come too. You guys in the Rochester Syracuse and surrounding areas maybe can try and cruise this way together. That lakeview meet would have been worth the trip but up to you on the falls one for the 29th.

As for our Buffalo gatherings and shows. Let's keep this going and see what happens. I'm thinking if most of you only plan on coming this way only once this year ,that it would be for the Jacquie4all event. I wouldn't expect for guys to make the trip twice.

Hoping to hear from more of our Buffalo guys to see about availability and about trying to do the niagara falls cruise.

Glad to see this is starting to generate some interest.
