Due to 'renovation' work at the Olympic Oval last year, Driven never made an appearance here in Calgary, but this year it's back on the calendar, with the date set for 9th June.

So who's up for attending as a MECA/Alberta group this year? The club/area certainly has enough vehicular talent, both Evo's and RA's, to put on a decent show, at least im my opinion. The Western Subaru guys generally attend in force so it'd be nice to offer a good showing of their arch rivals holla

No idea on the costs yet, but I doubt it's that much. If you want to park up as a group then you generally have to roll in as a group.......any stragglers will be persona non grata and parking elsewhere. This means the folks travelling from afar will have to be in Calgary sometime in the afternoon/evening on Friday 8th. I'd imagine we'll be kicked out sometime on the evening of the 9th. I have no idea on maximum numbers of cars yet either, but I'm sure all of the pertinent info will make it's way to us in due course.

Here, for your viewing (as well as copy and pasting) pleasure, is a list:-

As steel bounced this back on to the radar in the call to arms thread, I thought I'd post some more specifics on the event.

Driven Calgary 2012

Saturday June 9th, Calgary Olympic Oval
Roll in will be Friday 8th between 2pm and 9pm
Roll out between 10pm and midnight on Saturday 9th.

If we are going as a club or team, we must have a minumum of 5 cars. The cost is $50 PER CAR for which you get 2 entry passes and $10 goes back to the club/members to fund setup, food or whatever else.

If we go on individual entries, the cost is still $50 PER CAR, but we don't get anything back to fund setup :D

Whichever way you look at it, it ain't cheap, but I'm still likely going along. It'd obviously be better if we can muster the 5+ cars for a club stand though.

With MECA's track record of meets, no one will show up to Driven anyway. At least I won't be alone at Driven :(.
Our meets may be not as frequent but i would say the quality of members is much higher. When we do meet we do it right!
