Just curious how many people would rather have a meet somewhere in Canada or Washington, and how many people would attend. If enough people would want to do it we could find a place to do it at and make it official.

Im down for any location, I would like to see how my Swift does on longer drives though :D. Everyone post any ideas for a location or vote for either of the 2 listed so we can make this an official meet.

We could go up to Rolley Lake Provincial park for a picnic/bbq... its a bit of a drive but not super far from the border.

Rolley Lake Provincial Park & Official Site

Just my first thought.... there are many other things we could do though.

That would be awesome, looks like there is definately enough space for whoever wants to go. I think almost everyone would be up for the drive knowing most of us get at least 35mpg.

Somebody want to put up an official post? That location would be perfect.

I voted Vancouver because it would be a lot easier for me an Jr to be there.
we have had all of our meets south of the border, cept a few coffe get togetheres up here on short notice.
But if we have to south we can go, but there are a few places up here we can go to that we know of.
lets see how many can do both, and how many can't.

The GEo Swift NA plant was Cami Automotive in Ontario,
Too far for me to drive
Looks like we may be doing the west coast meet in BC.

Only the original poster or a MOD can change the header.

Where did it happen last year? I don't think this will die there are a lot of people who want this to happen, so we just need to pick a date and find out a place.
