Bbq/swap Meet Time Of Events Schedule....
#1
Alright guys.

I know I mentioned a few times before... It's time to get together for some BBQ a nice cruise and a photoshoot at the Hamilton Harbour.

The photoshoot will be held at the Hamilton Harbour.
BRING YOUR CAMERAS!!!!!!!

We will start at my Place (Appleby & Uppermiddle Rd. Burlington) Burn some meat on my BBQ, shoot the s**t and dust off the cars. Please feel free to bring any touch up items ie: Armour all, spray wax etc... We will have plenty of time to shine up the buggies before we head out to the photoshoot.

I was also thinking o making this Focus swap meet. If anyone has any parts they want to unload, please bring them. This is a good oppertunity to get rid of stuff without having to ship.

BRING STUFF LIKE:

AUDIO STUFF
PARTS
ACCESORIES ANY HEADLIGHT/TAIL LIGHTS YOUR LOOKING TO UNLOAD.
This is a wonderful oppertunity to empty your garages.

I live next to a big school so there is TONS of parking. We can all hang out htere.

Anyone with cameras and walkie talkies please bring them in case we get seperated!

I was thinking a nice cruise down lakeshore to the shoot and then down to Hutches for dinner. It will take a good portion of the day. Sunset pictures at the docks would be ideal.

We can all head back to SHOELESS JOES AT APPLEBY AND UPPERMIDDLE AFTERWARDS FOR PINTS AND WINGS.

Date: SATURDAY JUNE 25
Time: 12:30 PM TO WHENEVER WE FEEL LIKE IT.
LOCATION: 5173 DRYDEN AVE
PHONE NUMBER: 905 319.9287

I figured this was enough notice so everyone could cancel their plans.
Please bring your own meat. I'll have condiments and any other sort of side order you can think of. If you want steaks, bring steaks, if you want burgers, bring burgers... The grill is capable of cooking just about anything.

I'll have SOME drinks (pop) I will not have beer. I don't want the responsibility of someone doing something stupid and me be held responsible., but it would be great if everyone could bring a six-pack of something. I'll have several coolers on hand.

IF ANYONE WANT'S TO COME DOWN EARLY AND WASH THE CAR, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I'LL MAKE SURE I HAVE THE HOSE AND BUCKETS OUT.

Here are the maps and info so you can get here.

It's dead easy to get here.

Take the Q.E.W. Hamilton bound to APPLEBY LINE. GO NORTH (RIGHT) ALL THE WAY UP TO CANADIAN TIRE. (JUST NORTH OF UPPERMIDDLE ROAD) HANG A RIGHT AND FOLLOW DRYDEN AROUND TO SECOND SCHOOL ON LEFT (YOU CAN'T MISS IT!)

---------------------------------

LET'S ALL TRY AND MAKE IT! I THINK A COOL PHOTOSHOOT WITH SOME SHIPS IN THE BACK GROUND WOULD LOOK GREAT IF WE CAN GET A BUNCH OF CARS OUT!

Please feel free to slide me a PM of you have any questions.

Thanks guys.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



JUST A FEW MORE THINGS FROM A LOGISTICS POINT....

AS I STATED ABOVE, I WILL HAVE THE COOLERS, AND SOME POP FOR US TO DRINK AND SUPPLY ALL CONDIMENTS NEEDED FOR OUR ENJOYMENT. IF YOU PLAN ON EATING, PLEASE BRING SOMETHING. I WANT TO MINIMIZE ANY CANNONBALL RUNS TO THE STORE DURING THE MEET.

WE WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING:

BURGERS
BUNS
HOTDOGS?
SAUSAGES?
ICE?
MORE POP?
PAPER PLATES?
NAPKINS ETC....

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN BRING ANY OF THESE THINGS.

THERE IS A GROCERY STORE RIGHT DOWN THE STREET FROM WHERE WE ARE MEETING. YOU CAN GET YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS THERE.

IDEALLY I'D LIKE EVERYONE TO PITCH IN SOMETHING SO WE CAN KEEP OUT-OF POCKETS MANAGEABLE FOR THE DAY.

IF YOU BRING BEER, PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE....IF YOU PLAN ON DRINKING, PLEASE DO IT AFTER THE CRUISE!!! WE CAN GO INTO MY BACK YARD TO DRINK. I DON'T WANT ANYTHING STUPID GOING ON. I LIVE IN A NEIGHBOURHOOD WITH LOTS OF KIDS.
CHANCES ARE WE ARE GOING TO HAVE QUITE A FEW PEOPLE WALKING BY TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE CARS. I DON'T WANT TO SET A POOR EXAMPLE.

ALSO, BRING YOUR WALKIE-TALKIES AND LAWNCHAIRS. I ONLY HAVE A COUPLE OF CHAIRS SO UNLESS YOU ARE PLANNING ON STANDING FOR THE WHOLE DAY, BRING YOUR CHAIRS.

THANKS FOR HELPING OUT GUYS, I KNOW THIS IS GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY FOR FOCUS CANADA!!!





---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I'll be out washing the car around noon so everyone is welcome to show up anytime after that. The daytime is probably the best time to do the swap / trade stuff.
We will depart my house at 6:00pm sharp to get down to the docks to take pictures. I thought sunset shots would look the best.

So feel free to show up between 12:00pm and 5:00pm.
EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO TAKE PART IN THE CRUISE AND PHOTOSHOOT.... PLEASE BE AT MY PLACE BY NO LATER THAN 5:00.

After the pictures have been taken, we'll cruise along lakeshore back to my place for some beers and laughs.

A meet where there are other cars would be great! I might bring some extra parts (FC UDP, Steeda intake, early 2000 intake manifold) that I may want to unload.

Count me in.

Some teaser pics below.

If you want ships in your background I can deliver, these were all taken from my parking lot at work earlier this week.

I will take some more on Friday from a different place I have in mind which should have a real good "industrial" background, in fact it has been used in a few TV commercials already.

Parking pad at work:

Looking north from parking lot:

My office, no really it is. Cars could be parked for photos right where I stood to take that photo, closer in fact if wanted:

Looking south west from parking lot:

Looking west, parking lot in foreground:

East side of our grounds, cars could be positioned on gravel road, lower right of picture and have ship filling background:

The one Sat. in June she's not booked, so I'll make her come along and take a few pics.
I'll bring plenty of beer. Any help or anything you might need Anthony. Just hollar and I'll wave my magic wand.

Andrew, no drooling on the wife.
