I would try to make that...you sure the pointy nose guys are ok if a box comes along?

You are starting SO late :lol: that that I will make sure I'm ready for bed as soon as I get back...maybe drive with my nightcap on!

Been a long time since I had to fight bikers for a parking spot too, so I will bring my official police nightstick for the Sasquatch Inn .

Weather dependent for me of course.

I would suggest at the Powerhouse. I would say around Around 9:15 to 9:30. Google says Lordco to Power house takes about 45 minutes. I'll be providing a FB Link to event in a while.

Just a heads up with the Mission bridge re-paving and repair, that weekend it is scheduled for all sorts of single lane closures. It was a nightmare last time they did this for anyone caught in it. Check the Highways site.

I will be going back likely over the Agassiz Bridge, more direct for me to hit the south to get back to White Rock.

Lougheed gets stupidly busy anyhow as the day progress's.

Yes... avoid the Mission Bridge at all cost. Our routing doesn't take us anywhere that will be affected. Golden Ears might be a good Option for those South of the Fraser and want to meet up.

I travel to Mission all the time on Sundays. Going East on Lougheed should not be any issue at 8:30 in the Morning. Traffic should be fairly light.

Lordco start point gets you past the congestion at Coquitlam Center. Oxford connector offers easy access to HWY 7.

Heading back may be a different story. But still there are lots of Options. Really doesn't get congested on HWY 7 heading West until after 3:00 PM. A little bit at Mission. And a bit though Maple Ridge. I usually take the scenic Route back ( River Road through Hammond ) and avoid any possible congestion through Mapleridge on return route. Lots of return options.

I'm really looking for to this..for the first time...IN A LONG TIME....I will NOT be the Parade Major....

Yah, my return corridor will be good as I just pop onto those south back roads and just cruise along, I stay off #1's frenetic pace.

Will you have many Z's out, I have no sense of other's events at all. Dean be there?

Hey guys.
Sorry I’ve been kind of MIA this year. I have a sister that was diagnosed earlier this spring with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, not good would be the understatement of the year. I’ve been going back and forth to Edmonton trying to lend some support. I really can’t commit to very much until this plays out.
I know you’ll all have a good time without me.👍

Very sorry to hear that Dean. Take care of your sister and yourself.

FB event page just went up yesterday. So far we have 7 Z cars confirmed, 2 Maybe's and 2 square nose cars confirmed. Looking good. Keep them coming. Weather keeps showing better and better. 23 C and Sunny forecast for Mission.

A couple of years ago we got 30 Z cars in a photo shoot at Porteau Cove :mrgreen:

Where's James?
