    Cars and Coffee 2020?

    Does anyone have any intel on when or if the Tuesday evening Cars and Coffee will potentially start up again this year?

    Seems like it could be managed in a social distanced way if people were responsible.

    C&C won't start up until outdoor gathering limits are at 500 people.

    Ugh. Makes sense though I guess.

    They should consider a "must stay in your car" type meet up even and just see how that goes. Could all park facing outwards to see everything, drive around a bit etc. I know in some ways would be weird, but I would just like to see some other nice cars in one spot again!

    No opportunity to do a smaller / unofficial event?

    Probably a fine idea. I mean if people are acting reasonably and attending unofficially and at their own risk it seems like something that would be totally doable. Easy to keep the recommended distance with a smaller group in a parking lot and I see outdoor gatherings under 200 people are now officially allowed. I might even suggest the old Cars and Coffee location at the Garrison Woods Safeway where there is good access, a coffee shop and Village Ice Cream nearby.

    Maybe we watch for a nice looking forecast and put out a feeler on here to see if there would be sufficient interest. And sufficient for me would be more than 2 or 3 cars - haha. Fingers crossed.

    I'd be game. I feel like I don't have any reason to drive anymore - not even the morning commute. Just work on/look at cars these days.

    Ok, short notice I know, but today looking like the best weather day we’ve seen in a long while. Anyone up for a super casual meet up at the old cars and coffee location at the SE corner of the Garrison Woods Safeway parking lot around 7/7:30? Nice night for a cruise hopefully.

    Maybe reply here If you can make it so we know if we have at least a few cars!

    FYI, Stampede fireworks show at 11pm tonight as well.

    Please be respectful of social distance and personal space at all times.
