... it's never too early to start planning!

:D YOU'RE INVITED :D

Hello all,

I am a realtively new member here and a long time member of the fordfestiva.com forum. I also have a blog called econoboxcafe.com. Here's a link to the blog post for last years meet... http://www.econoboxcafe.com/2012/08/westiva-2012.html

On July 13th I am hosting Westiva 2013 which is primarily a meet and greet for Festiva and Aspire fans and owners. This is the sixth annual edition of the meet and we have decided to send an invite out to fans and owners of other econoboxes from the same era.

So consider yourself invited!

When: Saturday July 13th, 2013
Where: Wedge Pond, Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada (about a one hour drive from Calgary's western city limits).
What: Meet and greet at the pond in the morning. After a picnic lunch we'll take an afternoon cruise to grab an ice cream cone at Boulton Creek Store and then on to the Upper Kananaskis Lake.

Campgrounds in the area fill up fast so I would recommend making reservations.

Mount Kidd (http://www.mountkiddrv.com/) is the closest, and nicest, but there are a couple of other options that aren't too far away.

These are only about a 30-40 minute drive at most from Wedge Pond.

As for hotels the closest are located in Kananaskis Village, not far from Wedge Pond.

Lets see if we can make it back into double digits this year! We had 4 Festivas in '08, 5 in '09, 10 in '10, 5 in '11 and 4 Festivas and a Subaru Vivio last year!

Last year's Festivas

This is the sixth year at this beautiful location. The date happens to be the last Saturday of the Calgary Stampede so you could come early and take in the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth"!

This sounds like fun. I may have to make an appearance.

_________________
The favorite: Red turbo 3 swapped 90 firefly convertible with 3 tech cam and gear running 10psi rolling on 7 spoke GTI rims. Needs paint, a top, and more power, but lots of fun.

Honorable mention: 61 ford falcon money pit, 90 5.0 Lincoln LSC coupe with emotional attachment, supercharged teal 99 F150 for carrying firefly parts, and a black turbo volvo wagon with a dog gate to use every day.
