The only thing i feel we should change is to eat in Calgary before we go for the drive. The parking in Banff is going to be crazy. Also people that dont want to come for the drive still can join us for lunch. What do u guys think?

well seems like theres not much interest for the drive so far so might not be too many ppl coming. if thats the case parking in banff might not be an issue.

that being said...to be safe we could eat in calgary and then drive.....its all the same to me

i think theres a joey's in that area

Seems like it might be better to just cancel the drive and do the meet only

I have friends coming from out of town, that's why I can't join for the drive.

We should let people in the meeting decide I guess. There might be a lot of them that still want to go for the drive.

Well i found that the Meet and cruise was substatial. Was not a horrible turn out but wasnt a massive turn out either. Grizzly Paw in Canmore had excellent food. Good to see this time the pace was more consistent and we had a good group of people watching there spacing between the cars this time, and waiting up for the whole group to join up was cool to see as well. I must say the drive back on Highway 1A was Alot of fun. Light traffic and got to push the car hard on them bumpy twisty roads. Found the car understeering a little bit but nothing to big. All in all it was good time and thanxs for the trip and friendly converstations everyone.

I got some pics up here. Pics were taken with my Phone as the GF had the camera for the weekend

How the hell did I miss this?! Gotta check this forum more often. Looks like the drive would've been fun. Want to see more pics. Maybe we can squeeze in 1 or 2 more meets this year.
