P15 PicNic USA 2023
Here's the latest news!
It's been sometime since we wrote, and i've emailed most of last years participants directly, but I'm sending out this email to the entire 100 or so people that have expressed interest in joining our picnic tours. With this email, we are happy to announce the latest news for this years gathering in Canada.
Firstly, we've chosen the Casablanca Hotel in Grimsby as our home base for the event and the staff have reserved a block of rooms for our small crowd. They are holding several standard rooms (CA$179) and mini-suites (CA$199) for us. We encourage early booking! HOWEVER ALL RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE BY PHONE! DONT FORGET TO MENTION YOU ARE PART OF THE P15 PICNIC TO GET OUR DISCOUNTED GROUP RATE.
LAST EVENING WE RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE HOTEL STATING THAT WE ARE IN COMPETITION WITH A TRAVELING HOCKEY TEAM FOR THE ROOMS WE WANTED TO HOLD, SO WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE THAT HAS A THOUGHT OF ATTENDING TO BOOK NOW IF YOU WANT TO BE IN THE SAME LOCATION WITH US. ALTERNATIVE HOTELS ARE IN THE AREA, EMAIL ME FOR MORE INFO IF NEEDED.

We’ve negotiated a great rate with our host hotel (9/14-17). CA$199.00/nite for a mini-suite and CA$179.00/nite for a standard double queen room (before any provincial and local taxes). HOTEL RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE ONLY BY PHONE ONLY. Please mention you are part of the P15 Picnic USA group to receive the rates.
We will have two fun filled touring days exploring the soutern Ontario countryside. Tour routes are in preparation and will be released shortly before the tour.
We will of course be in Niagara Falls area, but the tours at the Falls will be self guided by each of you that wish to see the Falls. AGAIN, tours of the Falls are up to you, as there is so much to do in the Falls area and individual tastes vary so much. SO, Please plan to arrive a day or two in advance or to stay on past the end of the picnic to see the sites and attractions at the falls.
Our "Pic-Nic" is going to be a real special Saturday evening and is still in the planning. If we can get at least 15 couples to commit to joiing us for the evening, we will have a private four course meal river cruise! Expect the cost to be in the range of CA$75 per person, but considering we will not have a registration fee this year for the tour, we hope this little extra expense is defrayed somewhat. Fair warning, dress for the picnic cruise evening will be smart casual, we know you all shine up fairly well. More information about this evening will be sent as soon as we have this coordinated.
One final reminder, while this event strives to collect as many 40's mopar cars together for a fun weekend of touring, commraderie, and laughs, we don't descriminate brands or years, and we welcome anyone interested to attend.
