    My family and I may be attending this meet as it is half the distance than the midwest meet. I know parts are a lot cheaper in the USA, so if I can make it and any folks attending want some sort of parts brought with me for their truck, send me a pm. I have a friend who has a place on Georgian Bay, everytime he goes up he takes a case of roofing nails and a case of mobile 1 for the neighbor up there.

    Yes, I will bring the banner. I'll try to get there early to set up, so people can find our spot.
    If anyone knows the park?? Maybe they could let me know a good place.

    Hey Spike
    I know that park like the back of my hand.. LOL I lived beside it for almost 30 years.. LOL Right when you drive into the park, it is going ot be all gravel and dirt.. drive to the end of the parking lot and pick a few spots that members could park beside. there are day use spots to the right and left of you, to the right is closer to the walking path and river. there is no "Shade", so if someone has a canopy that would be awesome! I would give you mine, but it is in BC, it wouldnt get to you in time.. Haha.. If you get a spot near the parking lot, you could set up the banner, trucks near the spot.. Get there early, it tends to fill up fast :) Keep me posted

    With it being at a public park, I can't see there being a cost... but what I'm thinking is that if you wanna eat, you may wanna bring food - you should prolly bring a BBQ or something to that effect... I may end up doing that actually...:great:

    In terms of who's coming, I'm thinking there should be at least 10 different trucks there...
    I know I have a few guys coming from my Trailblazer / Envoy based site...

    It should be a good day...

    Looking forward to meeting ya! :great:
