2012 Northwest Mini-Meet
Peach City Beach Cruise
This event draws 800 cars parked along the sandy beach of Okanagan Lake. The event includes shows, winery cruise, parade, live entertainment, car auction, vendors and more. We had 13 Montes at a mini meet at this event in 2008 and we expect 15 or more this year from Washington, Oregon, BC and Alberta. This is a very fun weekend event.Weekend Schedule

Of course we will have the usual bench racing sessions in the hotel parking lot in the evenings. To take part in all the meet activities, it's best to arrive Thursday night and leave Monday morning where possible.

The Rosedale Motel
This hotel is less than 15 minutes from the show. Club members have stayed there in the past on a few occasions and have had no complaints. It is also a few blocks away from Aaron's house.
Since this is a popular weekend, the hotel said the cancellation policy is 2 months! Kind of crazy but it is a big weekend in this area.Hotel #2
This hotel is about a 10 minute drive from the show and 5 minute drive from hotel #1 above. It's a busy weekend in this area, book early if possible.Camping
For those who want to camp, there is a campground just down the road from the hotel.
Peach Orchard Campgroundhttp://www.peachorchard.ca/
I suspect the campground will fill up that weekend also so book early if possible.

2006: http://www.fgmcc.com/album/06WMeet/06WMeet.shtmlNOTE: This is not the official Western Meet with FGMCC awards and such. This is simply a fun get together of first gen Monte owners. I encourage everyone to try to attend the FGMCC official Western Meet in Carson City if possible. For those who cannot make the Western Meet, this mini-meet is a nice option (some will even do both meets).
