This August we will once again be hosting a meet and greet with the Assembly workers of GM Oshawa August 20th – 22nd.

Over the last year of turmoil the wonderful people of GM Oshawa have produced strong numbers of the Impala, continued to impress with the 2008 North American Car of the year the Malibu and sent shockwaves through the industry with the 2010 Camaro – building nearly 100,000 units in its first year of production! And they did all this while maintaining some of the highest build-standards in the industry .

Email sent.

Tried to book the room online (I'm at work now, but can't call)...one time it said those dates were filled, another time it gave standard room rates and wasn't taking the Camaro Group or CAM discount code.

So...it appears I'll be calling this evening after work.

As soon as Scott and I confirm that the paypal account is up
and working for international currency, the confirmations will go out with a link to pay for the dinners.
