Well as most everyone who has met me knows I like Tim Hortons.
Who'da thunk eh!
So as Sunday seems to be the day I am not available til about 1pm.
So why dont we just start at Tim's at south surrey called south point.
Its just south of the highway 99 overpass, off 152nd street in the Save-on parking lot. It also has a Wendy's as well.
starting at 1pm then go for a drive from there after a bit of waiting for others to show up. I think we can wait till 230 to 3pm.
We could cruise the beach from the east to west along to ocean park then over to Crescent beach Park.
There we can park and those wantin to BBQ can set up and we can all talk and toss frisbee.
Its just a suggestion.
I don't know what the weather is going to be.
As for the US guys, if they want to come up great.
I am not against runnin south either, I enjoyed the pizza at Burlington.
Just not the blown tranny on the way home :lol:

OK remember to bring yourself chairs, bbq and whatever you need.
If any can't come till later we will stick around Tim's till 3PM, then head down King George to 8th Ave.
To drive into White Rock on Marine Drive, we follow Marine Dr all the way to Ocean Park.
The road turns into 128th Street, the park entrance is off 128th street just before you reach Crescent Rd.

:furious: :thwack: Grrr, I'm off Sunday but didn't get the Saturday or Monday off around it so it looks like I won't be getting off the rock any time soon. :( It's way to expensive to drive across for just the day, especially with the long weekend traffic. I really want to make it to one of these again soon.

Good turnout today. I think it's been a year now since the last time I've been able to make it to a meet. n1tr0 (weren't you in town?), amxdreamer (don't you wanna 5 bucks?), what happened to you guys?

Here's my pics of the day:
