Ontario Mystery Run 2014 - Registration and Event Info

Mystery Run 2014
and
Celebration of the 10th Anniversary of smart in Canada


August 2nd and 3rd, 2014
Trenton, Ontario


What is the Mystery Run?
The Mystery Run is a follow-the-leader smart rally. The catch? You only know the start and end locations! Along the way, we'll make make several stops at different locations you may or may not have known were in the area. This is the 6th year of the Mystery Run.


10th Anniversary of Smart
That's right! The first ship-load of smarts arrived in Halifax on August 6th,, 2004, and the first customer delivery was September 23rd, 2004. That means 2014 is the tenth anniversary of smart in Canada! Mercedes-Benz Canada will be contributing stuff to the event, so stay tuned for more details on that.


Event Schedule
Let's be honest here – I'm still at the ideas stage for this. However, I would like to start the run from Trenton at around 10 AM on August 2nd. This means you will probably want to arrive Friday evening. There are no plans for Friday evening, so you can arrive as late as you want. The main event (as we've had in previous years), dinner, and prizes will be on Saturday. There will then be a short run with one or two stops Sunday morning, and then the plan is to end the event sometime in the early afternoon on Sunday. This should give most participants the ability to get home on Sunday as well.

Once details start to get firmed up, I'll keep you in the loop.


Lodging
I'm recommending you stay at either the Trenton Comfort Inn, or the Ramada Inn Trenton. I haven't made group reservations, as it ends up being more expensive for you in the end. Here's what I would recommend doing:

-If you are certain you are going to be attending, make your reservations now, as early as possible. If you book at the Ramada, there is an even cheaper option if you pay online in advance.
-If you aren't certain you are going to be attending, make a reservation anyway. You can always cancel your reservation when you make up your mind.

Hotels could fill up quickly at any moment, as the area is a hot tourist destination. Make your reservations early!

Costs
At this point, I don't know if there will be a need for a sign-up cost. If there is, it won't be a lot (I'd be aiming for $10, $20 at most), and as usual, it will only be what is actually necessary for our stops. Payment will be cash on the day of the tour.


Shirts
I'll talk to Tardis about having some Mystery Run shirts made up again. Shirts at the 4th run were $12 a piece, but the price is entirely up to her. Watch this space!


Saturday Dinner
TBD. Will be followed by the distribution of door prizes, and a raffle for a big prize (100% of raffle money will go to charity)


Sunday Lunch
TBD


Previous Runs
Still not sure? Have a look through the archives of past Mystery Runs:
First
Second
Third
Fourth
Fifth


Sign Up
To maintain a unified sign-up list, I'll be taking sign-ups by email. Please send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

Your Name
Your CsC or SCoA username (If applicable)
Passenger name (Or just +1 if you prefer).
Number of people attending Saturday Dinner
Number of people attending Sunday Lunch

Thanks John! His sign-up should make it obvious, but in case it wasn't clear:

This event is completely open to any US smarties that want to participate. Obviously you'll need a passport to cross the border, but beyond that, no restrictions! MB won't be checking passports to determine whether or not you get stuff

4 signed up now, still 2 tentative.

There's lots of good stuff coming from MB Canada for this event. Sign up early and book your rooms! I realize this is still pretty far away, so if you aren't sure you'll be coming, feel free to send along a "tentative" sign-up. It'll help with coordination and planning.
