Hey guys...I know I said we probably wouldn't have anymore meets until next springs due to the cold weather....but I guess I lied.
Well, technically this isn't an Escort/ZX2 meet...
The guys from the Toyota Celica forum have posted an open invitation to anyone wanting to join their Drive Thru The Fall Colours on the 19th of October.

Here's the official post from the Celica forum.
I hope we can get as many Escort/ZX2's out as possible so I'm not the only idiot attending. It should be quite a fun event. Domestics versus Rice...just think of the opportunities. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sounds like a hella lot a fun. I hope it's not a real race, it'd be tough work for my little autobox to keep up 8O I guess as long as people keep mounting cold air intakes in the engine bay there's hope for me :roll:

For now count me out until I DEFINATELY know. It's pretty rough trying to plan stuff with all this school getting in the way :wink: Does it look like the 200 spots are going to fill up fast, or do I have time to make a near last minute call?

Following is a quick list of reminders regarding this years 2003 Fall Tour. Please copy & paste this link, or post to your respective boards to ensure all your members are aware of this helpful update.


Fuel

Please be sure to obtain fuel prior to arriving at the Roll-In locatin (to be announced). During the tour there are several gas stations we will be passing, but there are no scheduled stops for fuel-refill. The total tour is approximately 130km. Please ensure you have a FULL-TANK of gas prior to arriving at the Roll-In Location.

For your convinience the C7 is hosting the roll-in location in an area surrounded by several 24-hour gas stations. Remember rollin is 9am to 10:30, and departure is @ 11am promptly. We are leaving precisely @ 11am.

Washrooms

Public washroom is availalbe at the roll-in location. Remember roll-in is 9am to 10:30, and departure is @ 11am promptly. We are leaving precisely @ 11am.



Car Wash

Coin car wash ($3) and Automated gas station car wash availble in the area as well. Remember roll-in is 9am to 10:30, and departure is @ 11am promptly. We are leaving precisely @ 11am.


Food & Beverages

Food & Beverages, and all other confectionary items will be available for purchase at our stopover. We are scheduling at least 2 hours for stopover to provide ample time for our group to park, grab a bite to eat (this is not a sit-down location) and meet & greet other members, take pics, and enjoy the backdrop of the beautiful fall colours at our stop-over location.

Movement of the Convoy

The group will be moving with the co-ordinated effort of six (6) C7 EMT Toyota Celica's. We will have a lead car, 4 cars spread out throughout the line and a car at the very end. These cars will be in contact with eachother at all times via 2 way FRS Radio on a private channel. The purpose of the private channel is to facilitate the orderly movement of the group. These cars will be visibly marked as tour cars so all participants willl recognize their presence.

Important Reminders While Driving in Tour Formation

DO NOT attempt to speed past cars infront of you. The idea of this tour is for leisure & relaxation. This is not a race. Please participate only if you can oblige by these guidelines.

DO NOT attempt to run through traffic lights to keep up with the convoy infront of you. It is a guarantee that our group will not be moving together in a solid single line formation for the first 30 to 40km of distance, due to city traffic. EMT are in constant communications and are aware of any one that is left behind @ a stop light, and the EMT car at the very end will be sure to keep everybody organized.

FOLLOW the car infront of you. Directions will be provided, but you really only have to follow the car directly infront of you and you won't get lost.

During our intitial departure, please co-operate fully with C7 staff as requested. We are organizing this tour for your benefit, and fun, and we need your full co-operation. If you are asked to move, back up, etc, please follow instructions respectfully.

THIS IS A PRELIMINARY UPDATE ONLY. Further specific updates concerning actual route, Roll-in Location, Stop Over, and Final Destination will be relayed in 48 hours

BETWEEN 10:30 -11AM WE WILL ASSEMBLE IN FORMATION TO DEPART.

TOUR DEPARTS @ 11 AM. NO EXCEPTIONS. THE ENTIRE TOUR GROUP WILL BE MOVING BETWEEN A C7 LEAD CAR, AND C7 TAIL CAR


General

C7 is proud to bring you 2003 Annual Fall Tour. In keeping with the spirit of goodwill to all, C7 is pleased to announce over 12 unique car clubs will be in attendance. Participants will have the opportunity to tour with a convoy of over 200 cars. This tour has been designed to give members of the C7 community at-large the chance to get out of the city for a few hours, and celebrate the fall season.

The Group

Upon departure, you will notice the tour will be guided by a Toyota Celica. The last car in the convoy will also be a Toyota Celica. These two cars will maintain these positioins at all times and be in contact with each other via 2-way radio & cellular phones. All participants are reminded to maintain your position once assigned (positions will be assigned during roll-out assembly).

All drivers are reminded to obey all Highway & Traffic laws, signage, and repsective by-laws. Please remember that both the lead car & tail car will know if someone get's stuck behind a light, and the entire tour will be stopping where safe, if necessary, to allow for the tail car to catchup. A group of 200 cars can stretch over a mile or 2, so don't be surprised if you can't see a friend, or a buddy in your rearview...

Route Details

The route wil take us into the heart of Caledon, through the Hockley Valley, where we will be stopping aproximately 1.5hrs into the tour for snacks, pics, meet & greet. Our stop has been organized with a local merchant, and parking & porta-potty's have been arranged to accomodate our group. Please be repsectful while @ our lunch-time stopover. We have made arrangements for the merchant to accomdate our group size. You are free to purchase your lunch, snacks, etc at your own discretion. We will be stopping for at least 1.5 hours.

Following our stopover, we will be moving on through Hockley Valley, and into the Forks of the Credit River. There will be no stopping of the convoy after our rest stop in Hockley Valley. Unforunately the local village of Bellefountain can not accomodate the parking, food & beverage requirements of a group our size this year. Upon a slow drive through Bellefountain the road changes into a southbound route that takes back to Mississauga where the 401 & 407 are both immediately accessible.

The tour ends at this point. Detailed maps & directions will be provided on the day of the tour during roll-in. Many participants may consider joing C7 for dinner @ a Swiss Chalet along the route after the tour ends. This is optional and not part of the Official C7 2003 Fall Tour, but as always everybody's welcome. No special arrangements have been made with the restaurant to accomdate the entire group.

Wow. I just checked out the forum on the C7 site.

234 cars signed up so far 8O

And it looks like there's only going to be about 3-4 escorts there. Some more support would be nice in a sea of imports :D

Saw the club listings. Is the skuce from vitalmotion the same skuce that occasionally makes an apperance here?

Thought that I'd post to let you (Mark) know that I WILL be showing up on Sunday in the most definate of terms (unless someone dies or the like).

Finally, is anyone from either the Kitchenr/Cambride, Hamilton, or even better Brantford area going down that would like to convoy to the meet.
