Unfortunately, it looks as if our depressingly short summer is quickly on its way out the door...but fret not my friends, because if nothing else it means it's almost time for our annual meet-n-eat at the Queens Diner in Red Deer!! For those of you who have not been before, here is how the past three have worked (more or less). Alberta's hot rod and custom owners meet at a rad diner just outside Red Deer for eats and to hang with like minded dudes and dudettes. This isn't a show perse, so if your car isn't quite on the road don't sweat it. It's just a chance to spend the afternoon BS'n about cars and putting faces to names. Usually there are convoys out of Calgary and Edm, so if you don't want to make the trip alone hook up with other out-of-towners! Here are some threads from the past events to get you guys excited: 1st year. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=398249&highlight=alberta+meet 2nd. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=501750&highlight=alberta+meet 3rd. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=617285&highlight=alberta+meet Now, there is usually some difficulty choosing a date so this year maybe I'll just pick it and hope for the best?? How does Saturday the 8th of Sept. sound?? That's a week before Radium and this would be a good chance for everyone to work the bugs out of their hoopties? Hope to see you all!
