Right now I'm working on getting the lunch on Sunday sorted out. The plan is to do a BBQ (At an undisclosed location!). I'll be sure to have the basics covered in terms of dietary concerns (Eg. I'll make sure we've got vegetarian options available), but does anyone else have anything else I should be specifically asking about (Eg. Gluten intolerance, or something along those lines)? Post here, shoot me an email, or send me a PM and I'll try to do my best to accommodate.

Wooo! That puts us past last years sign up numbers! We just need 11 more confirmed cars to surpass the 3rd Mystery Run's 37 registered cars, and become the biggest Mystery Run yet!

And of course, there are some people who have told me they're interested or definitely coming, but I still haven't gotten an email :wink:

Just booked at the Best Value Inn and hope that there are some others that are staying there as well.

Did you ever figure up the cost per person? I have been very busy and not had time to keep up with everything going on.

OK, a whole bunch of updates at once:

Route:
---------------
I drove the Saturday and Sunday routes yesterday, and with the exception of a few silly issues, everything's a go! All our stops are happy to have us, and things should be great!

Saturday Dinner:
----------------------------
Still in progress, as apparently their email isn't working properly (See my post from a while back about sending emails, but not getting a reply). I am waiting for a confirmation callback from "The Barley Room" in Picton, Ontario. See here for the description, and here for the menu. We'll likely have a slightly reduced menu to keep things moving in the kitchen, but that should give you an idea.

Sunday Lunch:
--------------------------
Lunch on Sunday is being catered by the Mission Street North food truck. They serve Mexican food, and have vegetarian options on the menu. The cost of lunch is included below. The lunch location, however, will not be disclosed :wink:

Costs (In CAD):
-----------------------------
Saturday will have an optional $5 per head charge for a tour and sample at one of our stops. Lunch and dinner costs are your own responsibility.

Sunday will be $20 a head, which includes lunch, a sample, and a tour.


----------------------------

Since SCoA isn't letting me edit the first post anymore, I'll repost it down here, with all the relevant info updated.

Regrouping all info into a new "first post"

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
There are no plans for Friday evening, so you can arrive as late as you want, to be there ready for Saturday morning. 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.

In terms of starting locations/times:

Saturday:
Tim Hortons at 11 Monogram Place, Trenton. We will be trying to get on the road by 10, so please arrive a little before that.

Sunday:
Walmart Parking Lot at 471 2nd Dughill Road, Trenton. We'll try to be on the road by 9 on Sunday, so again, arrive before that.


Lodging Options

Trenton Comfort Inn

Ramada Trenton

Canada's Best Value Inn

Trenton Travelodge

Trip Advisor also lists 3 other places that don't have their own booking systems:
-Bayside Motel
-Trenton Park Motel
-Guest Inn

Prices seem to vary by the minute, and will probably only go up since it will be a holiday weekend.
Hotels could fill up quickly at any moment, as the area is a hot tourist destination. Make your reservations early!

Costs
Saturday will have an optional $5 per head charge for a tour and sample at one of our stops. Lunch and dinner costs are your own responsibility.
Sunday will be $20 a head, which includes lunch, a sample, and a tour.


Shirts
Tardis will be making shirts for the Mystery Run again this year! Shirts will be similar to the ones from 2012 (Shown below), but will have a new colour scheme to go along with the event. The price for each shirt will be going up to $17 a piece, as we will be getting better quality shirts than last time. Shirts must be ordered in advance, with a cut-off date of July 20th, 2014 (So that there is time to embroider them!). Please send a message to Tardis or me if you would like to get a shirt! Here's a picture of what the old shirt looked like:



Saturday Dinner
Still in progress, as apparently their email isn't working properly (See my post from a while back about sending emails, but not getting a reply). I am waiting for a confirmation callback from "The Barley Room" in Picton, Ontario. See here for the description, and here for the menu. We'll likely have a slightly reduced menu to keep things moving in the kitchen, but that should give you an idea.

Will be followed by the distribution of door prizes, and a raffle


The Raffle
The city’s always on the move, which is why the smart electric bike was designed to make getting around urban areas easier than ever before. The smart electric bike combines clever functions with advanced technology and outstanding design, making your journey more enjoyable and easier. Electric motor assistance helps you as you pedal, providing you with the energy you need to reach your destination.

You can win the smart electric bike at this year’s Mystery Run! Generously donated by smart Canada, the smart electric bike will be raffled to one lucky winner and all proceeds generated will be donated to Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre to help rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife. For more information about Sandy Pines, please visit www.SandyPinesWildlife.org




Sunday Lunch
Lunch on Sunday is being catered by the Mission Street North food truck. They serve Mexican food, and have vegetarian options on the menu. The cost of lunch is included below. The lunch location, however, will not be disclosed ;)


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

Unfortunately Dan is no longer able to attend. All our sponsorship stuff should still stand (eBike raffle, and other secret stuff), but I'm waiting to hear back from a new contact to make sure.

We've now got a pretty serious breakdown kit coming along with us, which should guarantee that we won't need it :)

I believe I should have an updated menu for our Saturday dinner sometime this week. When I get it, I'll post it so that everyone can see it. All I've really got to do now is make sure we've got enough door prizes for everyone!

Whoadale will stop in Dayton tonight and we'll join up tomorrow heading for London, via Windsor. If anyone wants to stop by the Hojo Inn at the 401/Wellington Rd junction tomorrow evening for a chat we'll be there (or at the Tim Hortons across the intersection.) See you in Trenton Friday! :)
