: 2011 GM Powertrain St. Catharines Show & Shine Car Show - Glendale Ave. Plant

I haven't seen any reminders about this event yet on the forum and it's coming up soon! Last year, we had a good representation of both V1s and V2s attend and it was great to meet some of the guys from the GTA and around southern Ontario. BTW, St. Kitts is also only a hop, skip and jump across the border from the western N.Y. and is still pretty close to northern PA. Valid passports are required.

As well, in order to get in on the tour of the plant (which is fascinating!) you will need to print out your event registration confirmation which will serve as your ticket into the plant.

2011 GM Powertrain St. Catharines Show & Shine Event
Good Day Everybody!

The date for the GM Powertrain St. Catharines Show & Shine Event is Friday August 5. 2011 (9 AM - 5 PM). Last year we had 500+ vehicles registered. The S & S is open to all GM powered vehicles. This year we have a Public Open House for the Plant Tours, so no need for tickets as in previous years. We have vendors, a portable dyno and a BBQ available with proceeds from the BBQ given to charity. There is no charge for registration and it is a one day event, rain or shine. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me. Please mark this date on your calendar and hopefully your club will be able to attend! Registration can be done electronically from our site (http://www.gmpowertrain.ca/). We need name, email address, location and postal code as well as year make and model of vehicle that is being registered! There will be a club participation award so tell me what Club you belong to. We build Corvette, Camaro, Cadillac and other great Engines!!

Visit the GM Powertrain St. Catharines Web Site at http://www.gmpowertrain.ca. to see what we are all about! Spend the weekend here in the Niagara Peninsula and get a taste of wine country and if you wish, a little bit of the Casino Niagara.

Pre-registration Preferred

Note: For the Plant Tour, adequate footwear must be worn – Full leather shoes with a heel no higher than 1” and NO open toes or heels. (No running shoes or sandals will be allowed in the Plant) Safety Glasses and Hearing Protection will be provided.

Wish I had known about it, I may have been willing to work something out, however I believe 2 days notice is ~ 3 weeks to short for me to travel 700-800 miles :(
