KEEP TO THE SPEED LIMITS.

Meeting @ Webers on Highway 11 North between 10.45 and 11.15
(GPS 44.69380, -79.39873)

Leaving @ 11.30 LATEST.

Radios set to 7.21

Cost: $5 per car ... 50% donation to the OSPCA, 50% to SOMC (collecting on the day)

well I want to say that I am 100% in, but the miata club also goes to muskoka that day, so it will probably come down to a coin toss who\'s tour we will get to go on... my vote of course is mini, Stephens will be miata.

AHHHHH, good thinking Paul. Smaller groups coming from different staging points would be less conspicuous & not require OPP notification. Just the main event.

I have it on my calendar. It will be a priority.

Yes for now. Will let you know for sure, closer to the date.

There will be a group that will leave from Colossus Theatre at hwy 7. I\'m sure it will be set up on the first page who is leading it. Last year there were 66 cars total.

BANZAI
09-10-2010, 07:23 AM
I\'m just ironing out the final details of this year\'s format.
The main brief will be at Webers, but I\'ll be posting a few details in a couple of weeks.
This will be MY last Rattler, so I\'ll be looking for someone to keep it going.
It would be a shame to let a fun event like this to die.

Next year I\'ll be organizing a weekend long \'final fling\' sailing event around Georgian Bay for those of you that sail and have access to a keelboat.

I just got this from the municipality that controls use of the Torrance Ball Diamond

\"The Cranberry Festival Committee has booked the parking lot of the Torrance Ball Diamond on that weekend for parking and shuttle bus service to the Cranberry Fest. I am not sure that there will be adequate room to have you host your event at the Diamond also. The Cranberry Festival Committee is trying this new approach in order to draw additional people to the Festival from Gravenhurst. They are also doing the same thing in Port Carling to attract people from Bracebridge. If this additional shuttle bus service does not go as anticipated there is a chance that the Torrance Ball Diamond may be available next year.

I am not fully award of the criteria for your “Rattler” Charity Cruise and the exact amount of space you require. We do have parking and grounds accommodation at several other Community Centres in Muskoka Lakes if you are interested.

I should mention that facility use insurance coverage in the amount of a minimum of $ 2,000,000.00 (two million), naming the Corporation of the Township of Muskoka Lakes as additional insured is required for use of Municipal facilities and grounds.\"

Any ideas?

Stonetiger
09-16-2010, 07:14 PM
Do the cruise then head for lunch anyone that wants to go back after to the festival can.

My 2 cents.

MadDog927ca
09-16-2010, 08:13 PM
Is the ball diamond needed for anything other than parking at the end of the drive? We aren\'t actually hosting an event at the ball diamond that would require insurance, are we?

Can\'t we just park at the diamond like other patrons attending the festival, or is there more to it than that? Just my 2nd Rattler, by the way.

My thoughts exactly ..... we all go to the ball diamond to park, those that want to go to the festival get the bus and those that don\'t can leave from there. No opportunity for a photo shoot, but that is a small price to pay.

You guys do realize that cops read forums too!!:unsure:

So if a GROUP drives up together it could be another PHOTO OP for the OPP to do the same thing again as last spring!!!!

As long as we are driving safely and not impeding the flow of traffic, I don\'t see what the problem would be. I abide by speed limits and traffic laws, as I hope everyone will be doing tomorrow, and simply want to convoy with MINIs who feel the same as I.

Or if it\'s a problem, I\'ll drive by myself... But being together the whole point of a MINI cruise event, right? :)

Stonetiger

I was not implying NOT to drive together, but that maybe not post it to make them aware of it is all and at a former well known meeting spot.

Also I am sure most will obey the laws and speed limits on the cruise, but if one doesn\'t then the group can be blamed, so if that happens those individuals should be taken out of formation and asked not to continue with the group!!!

I also know from the spring event not all that got pulled over were doing anything illegal, but a couple were and they pulled over the group giving a great photo op for A channel who were just there by happen chance (yeah..right!!!)

Have a great drive, hope there are still a wide variety of fall colours and warm(er) temps.

I hope that everyone enjoyed the Rattler
A sincere thanks to Xiek and everyone else that helped out.
I spent the day in the arms of Morpheus .... well, Valium, but who\'s splitting hairs?
A severe lung infection followed by back spasms will do it EVERY time.

All I\'m looking for now is someone to take over the Rattler cruises for me.
There\'s not a lot to it .... most can be done from home on the net.
Thr format is already worked out ... all that is left is the list updates and contacting various agencies.

ANYONE? PLEASE Don\'t let this event die
