Hey Dean - here's the general breakdown by day. We will do up a high level itinerary brochure style closer to that weekend.

Thursday: everyone makes their way out to Vernon. That night is usually a good time with a bit of a party.

Friday: cruise and photos day, with a very likely stop at the beach. That night is a bit more low key as people don't want to be too hung over for Autocross the next day.

Saturday: Autocross. Early start to get ahead of the heat a bit. After we will make our way back and get things going for the big BBQ. Good party this night. Draw prizes and such too.

Sunday: breakfast at the chalet, then people start to make their way home.

And for anyone that is from further east who is thinking it might be a fun meet to attend, but doesn't want to do a big drive by themselves. My agenda looks like this:

Wednesday: Drive from Regina to Calgary.

Thursday: everyone makes their way out to Vernon. That night is usually a good time with a bit of a party.

Friday: cruise and photos day, with a very likely stop at the beach. That night is a bit more low key as people don't want to be too hung over for Autocross the next day.

Saturday: Autocross. Early start to get ahead of the heat a bit. After we will make our way back and get things going for the big BBQ. Good party this night. Draw prizes and such too.

Sunday: breakfast at the chalet, then people start to make their way home...or stop for night in Calgary.

Monday: Drive from Calgary to Regina.

Always looking for fellow cars to drive with for my extra miles travelled.

Thanks Chris - looks like we'll either have a late Wednesday night or an early Thursday morning. I'm towing to Calgary so it doesn't really matter. Yay partial-trailer queen.

I was thinking of being on the road by 9ish to be up there mid-late afternoon. If you have any trouble finding a place, we do have a pull-out couch/bed in the computer room you can crash in if you want.

Hey, I'm new here. I just signed up for this site. I saw Deanfun's message on CelicaSupra.com about the Ogopogo 2014 meets. Grrrr.... I want to go and meet new friends, but I can't. I have to work on those days, and I can't take them off either. Have fun guys/gals, maybe I'll join you next year to make the group bigger. Grrrrrrr.... who picked those days anyway??? haha... cheer.....

Lots of beds, all bunks at this point but they aren't that bad at all. There are a lot of bathrooms so showers aren't really a problem.

Tara is working on a brochure for end of the weekend. Will be sure to include the chalet info and address! Had to use a different one as our previous chalet has been flood damaged due to a storm.

Ladies and gentlemen:

I present to you the official program for this year's scheduled events!
Please note there are two versions - one to print double sided and fold, and another that should view very nicely on your mobile device of choice.

If there are any inaccuracies please ignore them... or maybe let me know so I can post an amended version.
