*********************

There is going to be a Honda Insight meet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada starting on Saturday August 16 with BBQ Picnic and on Sunday August 17 with an Auto-x race (where you may compete, be a passenger during the races or just watch if your shy)

We have 11 Insight owners interested in attending the BBQ!

Saturday August 16:
Insight owners BBQ Picnic at Sunnybrook Park in Toronto from 10 am to 5 pm. I found the perfect place with natural shelter from wind rain and sun, we will BBQ food all afternoon. After everyone has arrived and eaten we can start a convoy to cruise some major sights of Toronto starting at 5 pm.
There are suprisingly few Insight cars in the Toronto area and most people have not seen or at least noticed our cars before. Everyone will notice us with ~10 Insights driving in single file in alternating colors!

Then we will park our cars and eat dinner at Dave & Busters, which has a nice restaurant as well as a huge arcade in another room.

Sunday August 17:
For those that want to hang out on the next day as well, you are more them welcome to join me at an auto-x race where I will race my Insight against many other types of cars. (Sorry but the car control school was moved to August 24 due to construction on the lot)


For more info go to the official August 16 & 17 Toronto Insight meet web site:

We can call this a North Eastern North America meet, but all are welcome if they want to make it part of their cross country trip vacation and include a few days in New York city or something (It's about 12 hours from Toronto)
I would consider it a huge Insight meet if we get over 1 dozen cars out!

Wow!
That sounds great, G!

Count me in (at mere fumes away, I can hardly say no :) )

Let me know if you need help planning stuff - I'm not in TO, but Waterloo's not exactly far.

What kind of price-per-car are you thinking for this event?

I will consider attending, I'm off that weekend, but you'll need some veggie burgers for your BBQ :D

If we get a few more people, I'll attend as well. But I don't want any of those veggie burgers. ;)
Come on Aaron. I'll bring some "Chickenesque" burgers from Trader Joes. You'll never know they're veggie. Trust me. :wink:

Toronto Meet

Guillermo
Wether it's burgers with meat or some unidentifileable filling,
keep us posted on your progress. It would be great to have
a weekend Insight gathering. Would that be a gaggle of Insights? :lol:

Without SUVs, Insight owners certainly do not belong to the flock.....

This was just an early "heads up" so you all mark it on your schedules.
It's going to happen for sure. On Saturday afternoon I will check out a few picnic areas I have in mind (I haven't been there in a while) and I will reserve a shelter for our event.
Cheers,

are you just saying that cause they think monkeypox started in indiana? :)
Actually, I didn't know that - it was just the first comparison that came to mind (not to mention the most ludicrously named disease I could think of! :) )

Seriously though, for anyone who's looking at the Toronto destination and thinking that SARS is a problem, power black outs are more of a concern in this area these days.

How goes the planning, G?

A Gathering of Hybrids in Toronto? THANK YOU! Consider distributing invitations to the local (Toronto area) Honda dealerships which really need to bear witness that, a) 2003's do indeed exist, and b) the Insight has earned an enthusiastic following. I'm thrilled to find so much information on this site but equally disappointed to find so little interest at the dealership level. Half the problem is just finding a car once you convince them they're still in production. One dealership's manager told me they had a "party" when they moved the one Insight they had––it had been there so long. (I was just p!$$!% to have missed it!) Of course, they have some lovely Civic SiR's if I'm in a hurry...but I digress. Another dealership actually offered to have one brought in so I could take a look, but so far I haven't heard back.
