Hey Mike, thanks for the headzup on the Edmonton Mob's plans. Yeah, if you're doing lunch in Cochrane, I'll likely catchup with you.
Feel free to ping me a text message on my cell perhaps when you're heading out after lunch - and still in cell tower range.

As for the Calgary Mob... are you defaulting to channel 1 for the trip?

Cheers,
Terrence

Let the show commence.

We're looking at he largest advance entry to date and all the pieces are in place for a great show and activities out in Radium.

Several groups of cars are getting together for the trip out from Alberta, mostly congregating at the Cochrane overpass Petro Canada station on highway 1 west.

Thursday's group leaves at 10 am from there
On Friday, two groups I'm aware of depart:
One from McDonalds across from Canada Olympic Park at 10:00 am
The second, primarily consisting of crews from northern Alberta, at around 1:30 from the Highway 1 west Cochrane Petro Canada.

Crews who were previously going to travel solo are welcome in any of these groups of course.

See you all in Radium this coming weekend. Have a safe and pleasant trip out to the mountains.

Is this the Petro Can you are talking about?

Also, do you know which groups are planning to take the main highway, and which are planning to take the 1A?

Thanks for that MIke, I'll plan to meet up with your group in Cochrane - an afternoon start works better for me on Friday.

See you then!

Gerard,
Thanks for your kind words, and for attending our little show.
So glad that you and your wife enjoyed the weekend, and left for home having made new friends as well.
We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Terrence, great shots of the full weekend activities.
