    Exclamation 2017 Unofficial Meet Thread

    As many of you know, Marc is not holding any meets this year. With that being said, Halfway Motors (Brad Folino and myself) is going to be organizing the cruises and meets that typically take place after the auto X events. We will continue to use the TD Bank on Memorial Parking lot. I will post meet times and routes on here as we decide on them. If anybody has any input for the cruises and/or meet locations please feel free to reply on here or approach me at any of the events. If you wish, you can also come and see me at Halfway Motors Nissan at any time.

    Next cruise will be posted shortly

    Have a longer meet up time before the cruise, print out maps, have the information speech before heading out, don't speed.

    I was late for one cruise,, everyone was gone, found a the map on Facebook and met half way at AJ's, no one said where we were going and my base model Integra couldn't I keep up with anyone, ended up getting lost a down 608 and almost ended up at a the border, the Last cruise that just passed I made it to the TD meet and when everyone left to Crystal Beach In got there with about 15 minutes to spare before everyone took off again.

    Like I get those cars are fun but I should be able to keep up going 100-120km/h but everyone is GOONNNNEEE..

    Just some suggestions if you're going to take over the Marc legacy, hismeets were way more chill, lots of time for everyone to show up, nice easy cruise, maps for anyone who falls behind, longer stoping points for everyone to catch up.

    This is why I never go to the meets after AutoX, I'll show up and then get left behind cause my car is to slow for everyone lol, like I'm talking 4000rpm at 120 trying to keep up lol

    We are trying to avoid the same problems that we had last year. We don't want to say that we are going to meet for 7pm, and nobody shows up until 730, and then talk until 830 and then we don't have time to go anywhere but the Terry Fox lookout.

    If people could actually show up on time then it wouldn't be an issue. Last cruise we said meet at 6pm, leave at 645. Half of the people were showing up at 640 so of course there was no time to sit and talk.

    Next time we will try the longer wait, but from what I remember from last year, everyone was tired of just going to TFox.
