Default 2018 Niagara Cruise - Sun Sep 30

Hey everyone, we're organizing the second 2018 Niagara Cruise!

If this your first cruise, we'd like you to come out! It's a fun, social and relaxing cruise through the Niagara region that ends up being more of a S2000 parade (especially when we get 20 to 30 of us). If you feel the need to demonstrate your #trackskillz, this is not that type of cruise, bro. There'll be 4-5 hours of driving, including pit stops for photos, snacks, and as usual, Thorold Tunnel. Pictures from last year's cruise can be found HERE. At the end of the cruise, we grab a bite and a drink somewhere. Post up if you can make it!

GTA PRE-MEET (9:00 - leave at 9:15): Sherway Gardens (click for exact location)
MEET UP LOCATION: Casablanca rest stop (click for exact location)
MEET UP TIME: 10:00 (socialize, eat and gas)
DEPARTURE TIME: 11:00
LUNCH/DINNER: TBD

CRUISE ROUTE: TBD

GENERAL POINTERS:
1. Bring a radio if you have one (Channel 0)
-This is, quite possibly, the most important thing to bring. It'll prevent you from getting lost and it makes the ride more fun with the ongoing chatter.

2. Keep your headlights on
-It makes a big difference to be able to see the tail lights in front of you and the headlights in your mirrors.

3. 2-Car Rule
-Whenever you make a turn or are getting on/off the highway, make sure you can see 2 cars behind you before turning.
-if you really must turn because you're holding up traffic, then stop right after the turn so the car behind you can see you (there may have been a few cars between you guys).

4. Stay within the yellow and white lines
-Sorry if I'm being Captain Obvious here, but we cannot emphasize this enough - safety is paramount and we're on public roads. We've never been pulled over by the police and we'd like to keep it that way.

What are people's thoughts of actually starting the cruise earlier in the day? Like 9am early from Casablanca? That way, we can avoid the hottest part of day, we'll be done before noon, we can relax for lunch and still have the rest of the day to chill and/or get back before traffic gets horrible? Just throwing it out there to see if there's interest.

Count me in. I totally agree with you as far as getting an early start at Casablanca, although I don't know if heat will be an issue this time of year.

Ahh, I was looking forward to this one but my flight back from Boston doesn't land until 11am that day so I'm out.
