We had such a great time during our cruise in Muskoka that we just had to organize another one, so welcome to our second cruise of the season!
This time we will be touring the Niagara region and its beautiful wine country roads on Saturday, July 25/2020. Rain or shine.
We will be meeting at Audi Hamilton (1215 Upper James St, Hamilton, ON L9C 3B2) at 9:30 AM and we will be on our way within an hour towards Niagara-on-the-Lake, where at Brock's Monument a pro photographer (Jeff Vogan - sportdad.ca) will bring out his gear and create a setup to take some amazing car shots.
Starting Thursday, people interested should register for the photography (pre-register for photos here) *fixed* so we can organize those who want photos from Jeff to leave in the first waves from Audi Hamilton. Those not pre-registered for photos who decide at the monument they'd like Jeff to photograph their car too will be accommodated as possible. Pricing is on Jeff's web site (pre-registration link above). We ask that guests NOT gratuitously use Jeff's set up and take their own photos while Jeff is working.
Then around 2:30 PM, we will head to Niagara Falls and the crest of the falls themselves (Table Rock). We will stop there in a private parking lot to admire the falls and take some group photos. Those who wish to join us for a beverage and light dinner after can do so as we have reserved the patio at Queen Victoria Restaurant for our event, starting at 4:00 PM. (Queen Vic site here.)
We would like to thank Niagara Parks Commission for making Brock's Monument and Table Rock private parking lot available for us to use and for accomodating us on the patio at their restaurant. Another thank you for Audi Hamilton for hosting our meeting point.
COVID and behaviour.
The health and safety of all participants will always be our top priority and we ask everyone to follow Ontario's guidelines regarding COVID-19.
We ask members not to attend the event if they or any of their passengers are sick or in a high-risk group, to always maintain a minimum of 6ft distance between other persons and not to get into anyone else's vehicle during the event.
Upon arrival, all participants (drivers and passengers) must sign a waiver of liability for our insurance and a COVID-19 waiver. Hand sanitizer and masks will be provided.
During the cruise, drivers must observe and abide by all traffic laws. When driving we ask that you maintain a safe distance between cars at all times and introduce extra space between you and the car in front while driving on the scenic twisty roads.
To follow the route electronically, we ask that you install the Calimoto app on your Apple or Android mobile device. This is the first time we are using this app - so printed directions will also be provided. You will need to create an account in the app and send Gordon (email@example.com) your user ID so we can share the route with you - you don't need the premium version. This is a motorcycle cruise app that many people also use for car drives. Your help with this initial test is appreciated.
Please note that in order to attend the event you must contact firstname.lastname@example.org in advance and have your car registered.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.
