Honestly, I'm over commited, and can't commit to anything more. Hope I can still hang out with you when it works.

Sean and Mike, it would be so great but 7 hours driving between members would make meetings real tough.
For me to get the Firebird to Edmonton I would have to trailer her.
Sure wish we lived closer guys but for sure someday we do have to meet!

Yah, the distance really kills it. Meets would be next to imposable. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how we could make it work.
I just wanted to see what kind of intrest there would be.

There's gotta be more Canadians who live closer! Great idea Sean, let's keep the idea alive and see if we can find others who live closer to ya'll. We might see more people jumping into this thread once google indexes it.

I think what need to do is really concentrate on our immediate area's this summer and once we get that going we can hopefully later make a once a year Canadian Meet somewhere in the middle or even take turns hosting it.
I have made a mass e-mail to all the local clubs here telling any Firebird owners they may have to join the site with a link.
I would love to see this happen. :12EMOTICHEERS:

LOL, Pete For Canadian Prez......

Honestly, he may be the best choice. Considering he is a Business owner and Manager.

I think you are right on target with that Pete, the more local people that we can get together, the better. As for Doing a Yearly Canadian meet, I think that is a great idea. I think your idea of different clubs hosting it each year is a great idea.

Heck you guys are probably closer to me than anyone else. There doesn't seem to be any interest in the Northwest to put together a FBNCC so I might as well hang with the Canucks ... lol :D

Would love to Greg but that's still 600 miles from here, Canada is just so spread out distance wise.
I could do it in the Grand AM but the Firebird would have to be trailered especially at 8mpg. :f_bananarockm:

Somehow we will figure it out yet.

The driving involved in doing a Western Canada Meet would be alot for most of us. Its a Fantastic thing to do, and we would have to do some extensive planning, maybe as far as a year ahead of the planned meet. There are so many aspects to consider when organizing something like this, between people planning the time off of work, to making sure that that they have the available funds to make the trip. I think that if we discuss this more, we can make something happen. But its going to take input on all of our parts.
