Need to name a place and time and see who shows and build from the first meet. Try 2 wks from today and promote it. I'll be there.

Nice to see some interest!

September 18th, 8:00am at the Trainyards Starbucks. I'll get the word out to the Viper and Ferrari clubs, someone have PCA contacts in Ottawa?

With a little luck, it won't be raining/hailing/snowing/apocalypsing that day...

I think there's enough Ottawa interest to model the Toronto GTG model... consistent each week, same time same place, see who shows up!

I'd suggest creating a thread with all the details once they're decided, call it "Ottawa Cars and Coffee - Sunday @10am" or whatever and ask the mods to make it a sticky at the top of the forum.

If you end up doing a winter get-together I'll be happy to join you each week, as I will be working in Ottawa from October to mid-January!

Default I'm in

If the stars align, I get my car back from the body shop, I get a hall pass from the Mrs. Then am in.

I would not be able to go the following three weeks as we are away on a med cruise.

Looking forward to it,

People like to go out Saturday nights. I think I would be DUI'ing at 7:30am to make it there for 8am.

I'm interested, but it is a tad early in my opinion.

I figured that it would be best to get there before the stores open and we're surrounded by rusty Hyundai Ponys with broken door straps.

I also figured that most people inclined to go to one of these would have outgrown the party 'til you drop stage of their lives a couple of decades ago.

If turnout appears limited by the early hour, it can be adjusted to suit.

You all want to make it 9:00am then? I'm OK with that since it'll give me time to arrange the tow truck to bring my car down if my fuelling issues aren't sorted by then

I'd like to, but the Army Run (half-marathon) is on that day and my wife is running in it. Only if the weather is horrible am I not obliged to go and cheer (because I'll have my toddler) but, if the weather is horrible, will there be anyone at coffee and cars?

Either way it's a great idea. Hope to see you onetime.
