Great question. I was wondering myself as the CASC banquet on November 19th is race only.

Great question. I was wondering myself as the CASC banquet on November 19th is race only.

No one went to it, so...

Attempting to arrange something separate. Thinking go-karting followed by beverages of a social nature. As soon as I have a day I'm not traveling on business or have less than 12 hrs in the office I'll get it organized.

Naturally if anyone wants to volunteer to help...

I should have added that since the the banquet was race only it must mean that autoslalom will have its own. :p

As for volunteering, I can probably help you out Barry.

I can help out also. How about this place: http://www.hamiltonindoorgokarts.com/ .
Ontario's fastest go carts? My buddies have gone and said you can rent out the hole track for a night. Not sure if this is to far for everyone to travel? If you want I can call this week and get some more info?

We are going to need a number count for who is going to come. Only worth it if we get more then 10 guys I am thinking. I can always make a group event invite on our Facebook page so we can get a idea of how many will come? Most of us are on the Facebook group right?

What do you guys think?

the hole track is shit.:D Now, their whole track is effin' rockin!

I'd pay $50 for a night of racing around in the dead of winter.

Too far to travel? we drive 6 hours to picton, 3+ hours to barrie and Oshawa...2 hours to hamilton is easy.

keep us sarnia guys in the loop!

That looks neat. If you could check it out Jamie? I'd guess 20 for numbers.

We're talking about Nov 27th being a poss date.

On a Sunday?

Lets do it late night on Friday or Saturday we will get a better turn out.

I personally would rather afternoon karting and then some food and A drink early evening so that I can get home - but I'm old... :) The 27th works well for me, but we need to go with the majority. To be honest I think a date/time needs to be chosen and we just get what we get. No way to please everyone, particularly not this time of year.

I'm willing to drive to Hamilton if the karting is worth it.

Jamie, can you look into restaurants in the area too?

We can still have a piss up the Saturday night for anyone that wants :)

I agree with this. I was just making sure that a Sunday was the correct day when Barry posted it as these things have usually been on a Saturday. :)

This is my hood. I can help a bit too.
What kind of restaurant do you guys like/want? We have a good selection in Hamilton.

As for the karting, while it is great fun at this place, sometimes the karts aren't evenly matched. Just FYI. Also, if weather permits this place can do an indoor/outdoor config.

Alright I'm game guys.

We have a little money left in the kitty that we can devote towards covering some (possibly all) of the entry for our trophy winners and series newbies.

The dirty Hammer, or Formula Kartways?

If the hammer doesn't pan out i say let's try GPK (with the "fast karts"). Don't love leaving formula smelling like I've bathed in fuel.

How does January 21st sound to everyone? It is a Saturday night.
When I got time I will make a Facebook Group event so we can confirm how many people we will have.

If your not on the CASC-OR Autoslalom Facebook group. Send me a PM and I will invite/add you.

Jan 21 may not work for me, BUT, we need to just pick a date and run with it. There's no way to please everyone. Barry is the only one that really "needs" to be there - as our fearless?/faithful?/definitely Irish leader. :p

As it has been suggested by others, grab the date and stick with it. Be nice to have everyone there, but with a large crowd, not possible. You can please most of the people most of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.......

Good Luck!

And yes, I will be attending...........

I'm sure that number will increase once the holidays are over.
