Alright, thought I'd get this started.
Most of the locals know about this already so this is for everyone else.
The Cruise:
When: April 2nd, meet up at the Spokane Valley Mall at 11am.
Where: Cruise around Lake Coeur D’Alene. More details on the cruise are further down in this thread.

The BBQ & GTG
When: April 3rd 10am-3pm.
Where: Spokane, Mission Park parking lot.
Who: Anybody with a love for European cars and cheap BBQ.
What to bring: Your car (washed, waxed, detailed, etc.), yourself, some donation money for food (not required but would be nice), or some non perishable food (canned, dried, etc.) as a donation to Second Harvest food bank.
Here is a link to the site for the Cruise and Show
See you there!

We estimate that we had 50-75 totals cars that showed up over the course of the day last year. If you would like to see pics, go to http://www.eurotunedcomposites.com and click on "April 05 GTG". All the pics are from last year's event. It is pretty bandwidth intensive though, so non-broadband folks may not want to try it.

Yeah, last year was easily the largest grouping of VW's in Spokane I have ever seen.

As a side thing, I was thinking of taking off my "speed hole" hood, and having all who attend sign it as a neat momento, unless someone else has a better idea what to do with it, or do something similar.
Most definatly looking forward to this again

I'll look for some pics later, I think I know where some might be.

Re: Spokane 2nd Annual Spring BBQ Euro Show & Shine April 3rd (db_boy)

The cruise will pretty much be the same as last year with the addition of that section that we did toward the end of last year.
I'm heading out that way today to check it out.
There was some construction that was started late last year and I want to make sure that it's all done before settling on that route for the cruise.
I'll keep you all posted!

Re: Spokane 2nd Annual Spring BBQ Euro Show & Shine April 3rd (90 Black Jetta)

I drove the cruise route yesterday. The construction at the Wolfs lodge exit isn't completely done but you can cross the bridge now.
So the cruise is on!
The plan: Meet up at the Spokane Valley Mall around 11AM. We'll want to start up ASAP so that traffic is light and we'll have plenty of time to do the cruise. Make sure you have plenty of gas. There is a gas station about halfway through the route but its spendy. So fill up in town where it's cheaper. Also we'll discuss the ground rules and choose what channel to be on with our hand radios.
The route out: Well leave the Spokane Valley Mall and head East on I-90, go through Coeur D’Alene and take the Wolf Lodge Bay exit. I think it's exit 22. The road is I97.
Here is a map:

We'll gather again for a quick photo shoot in the parking area just off the exit to the right. For those that've done this before you know the place! Help the noobs out.
Lunch: This is up for discussion. We ate at a restaurant in Harrison (I think that's where it was). It was good but there were other places there that we could eat. I say stick with the restaurant. We can call ahead and make sure they have room for us!
The route back: We'll leave the restaurant and continue on 97 until it junctions with 3. From there we have a choice. Go north on 3 or South.
North takes back to I90. South takes us to St. Marie's. But we don't have to go that far. A detour will hook us up with 5 East and through some really nice twisties.
GTG after? Afterward I'm personally tired. It'll be mid to late afternoon by the time we're done. The sun will be coming down and in our eyes on the way back so wear your sunglasses! If you're up for a GTG afterward I'm down for that. Beer would be really good by this time.
Some other things to consider: I mentioned hand radios. This is so we can all talk while on the cruise. The group can get pretty spread out so they come in handy. Also, if your suspension isn't all that great and don't kid yourself, there are some spots on the way that are over cliffs and the drop is killer. Literally. So, lets keep the speeds reasonable and within your car and your ability. I'm not pulling your car out of the lake or some ravine! Let alone how do we explain it to your Mom, wife, husband, or kids!
Point being, keep it safe. That way we can all have fun, the police won't have any reason to harrass us, and we'll all be able to do it again next year!
