Default For Those Who Couldn't be There....

As I wait for one of my gracious friends to allow me some access to their web server, I figured that I'd post up a play by play of the great weekend I had with fellow BonnevilleClub members.

As you may or may not know we had a little get together that resulted in a 6 page thread in NE US and CAN forum... will, it was worth it.

Seth (smellbird) departed from Mankato MN at 11:00pm on Wednesday night for his long but memorable journey to Mississauga Ontario. On Thursday afternoon at 4:15pm, Seth calls me while he is on-route, 2 hrs outside of Miss. passing thru the quaint town of Woodstock Ontario. His car was DIRTY..lol

Have a look


That night, I had a company softball game, and I called the travel weary gent if he was interested in joining us. I went to pick him up and we cruised over to The Brickyard Park for some good ol softball. I also had sweet *** Bonneville keychain for him. Anyway, we got beat in our games but he got to watch us play. My friend Jamie..she took a spill tryin to tag out a guy and got scraped up, otherwise no damage. We followed it up with a couple of beers after the game.

Friday I had to work in the morning but after my lunch meeting Seth and I hooked up for a round at the driving range. We destroyed some clubs...lol, one of his swings actually broke the shaft of the club, it flew out of his hands on totally snapped..it was
Then following suit, I busted up my driver.




Then we headed off to my friend Dan'* place for a sweet hand wash for Seth and a wax for me. While my ride was getting waxed we had to go take some nice pics of his car at a lakeside park in my area.

Heres a few




Then later that night it was off to Little Italy....good times
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...pic.php?t=5888

We got back into town around 3am, and I knew in the back of my head, Pete (bonnie94sse) was scheduled to arrive for 10:30 and Bryan (russianpolarbear) for around noon-1pm. So, like an idiot I stay in bed until 9:00am. I rushed around the house like an idiot, next thing I know...*knock* *knock*, mom answers the door, "Hi, is Jim home?, I'm Pete"...damn I still had bed-head...lol

Well, we headed off to Canadian Tire for detailing products. When we got back Seth arrived and the cleanin began.


We waited for Bryan to show up, but sadly he didn't. So the 3 Bonnes hit the hwys and up to Dave and Busters we went. We decided pics were necessary.


We waited for some friends of mine to arrive and Tam and Murdock to arrive as well. In the meantime I witnessed Pete Patrician (did I spell that right?) down 2 Guiness beers. Well...after that..off to Dave and Busters for gaming and chillin out with dinner on the patio. I was pleased that my buddy Paul and his beautiful girlfriend Kristi came back to join us. So for dinner it was me, Seth, Pete, Tam, Murdock, Paul, Kristi and my other pal Jonathan.

The cruize back was busy..lots of traffic. On the way back I was tryin to think of good locations to take out last pic of the rides.....and my street was the best



Seth took off for his hotel to rest before the long drive back to MN, but as far as I know he was plannin on driving thru Northern Ontario to get back. Pete and I went to ricer heaven at the local Tim Hortons for some iced Cappuccinos. He needed something to keep him awake for his long trip home

Who'* in for the next meet?

When we meet up for our picnic July 12th, you will see more than a dozen of us. You all will see 4 times as much.

Come on Will.
All this is getting me revved up for that Vancouver meet we have all talked about.
I'm sure we could round up more than 4.
The puke would match the color of your car.
The next time I'm in Vancouver will be Aug.1-3 for the BIG Fireworks on Aug.2

It didn't work out for the previous attempt for July 1.

Yeah, next time I'll go for more Guiness. I had an empty stomach so I quit.
But as long as there'* no puke in my car, next time will be better

12 Bonnes in a row would make a sweet pic.

Yes Jim, you spelled my name right
I wish I could have taken a pic of the customs guy searching my trunk for drugs. That was funny
