BBOMG-4 official announcement and details

It is with great pleasure that I make the official announcement for.....



What:
The 4th Annual "Buyers & Builders Ontario Meet & Greet"

When:
August 10, 11 & 12

Where:
St. Catharines, Ontario


This year BBOMG will be taking a trip down the QEW to St. Catharines - Home of the GM Powertrain plant.
This plant assembles a number of GM's award winning engines including ALL of the current Camaro engines!

Find out more by clicking the above banner.

Each August the GM Powertrain plant hosts a Show & Shine open to all GM powered vehicles.
2012 will mark the show's 14th year which now attracts over 500 vehicles.
The show takes place in a park setting in front of the plant with vendors, awards, a BBQ, a portable Dyno and
.... wait for it....
A Tour Of The Engine Assembly Line!!!

The BBOMG-4 feature event will be the GM Powertrain show and plant tour on Friday August 10th.
This represents another opportunity for you the buyers and enthusiasts to interact with, build relationships with and THANK the fine people that build the cars we are so passionate about.
This results in a different kind of event that must be experienced to be appreciated.
This is why we say, BBOMG is more than just a car show.... It's an experience!

Been to the GM Powertrain plant before? Rest assured, we are working to ensure that BBOMG-4 will be an epic weekend of fun! The weekend will include Friday at the GM Powertrain show and plant, the annual BBOMG banquet / auction and the Saturday night raffle social. Details on other activities through the weekend will be released in the coming months so stay tuned!

This year, BBOMG is proud to team up with GM Powertain to raise money for local charities which focus on local youth. 100% of all money raised will be passed on to our charities.

Reservations & Cancellations:
A credit card is required to make a reservation however thse are not prepaid rates. Reservations may be cancelled at any time up until 24 hours prior to arrival. Cancellation fees apply if reservations are not cancelled 24 hours in advance of arrival.

A message from the BBOMG Organizers:
One of our goals is to make BBOMG as accessable to as many people as possible. Part of that is keeping the cost down and that is why BBOMG will continue to be FREE to attend. Unfortunately these group hotel rates are a bit higher than we would like. However for the quality of hotels in the area, these rates actually are not that bad. There is another large event in town the same weekend and accordingly, hotel rooms are at a bit of a premium.

These hotels are close to the BBOMG events with lots of ammenities in and around them. At the host hotel we will have a "BBOMG Only" parking area with nightly security again this year. Plus the cost of tickets to the Friday night banquet will he cheaper this year!

Some of you may choose to stay at a different hotel - and that's fine. There are lots of hotels in the Niagara Falls area. However a word of caution. You generally get what you pay for. Rooms for $75 might seem like a great deal but you will likely be disappointed with the facility. In short, there are some pretty sketchy hotels in and around Niagara Falls. If you have any questions, please ask.



Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I register for BBOMG?
An official registration site will be opened in the near future. For now you can express your interest here. But you will not be officially registered until you enter your details and receive a confirmation email. Please watch for details.

How much does it cost to participate in the BBOMG?
As always, participating in the BBOMG is absolutely free!

Sleeping in my car is awkward. Where can I stay?
Hotel details have been added above

What are the details for the BBOMG Banquet?
Similar to last year we will have a limited number of banquet tickets.
Details including menu, price and how to buy tickets will be posted in this thread at a later date.


Does my BBOMG registration also cover the GM Powertrain Show?
No

So..... you're going to tell me how to get into the show right?
A SEPARATE registration for the GM Powertrain show will be required. Registration will be available on their website in March or April 2012. The BBOMG organizers will advertise when their registration opens. But don't worry if you're late. In the past they have not limited or closed registration. Registration is also available on-site at the show.

With such an awesome show and tour there must be a registration fee. How much?
There is no cost to register for the GM Powertrain show & plant tour.

Really?
Really! Save your money for the charities.

Really?!?
OK that's annoying. Ask a real question please.

OK.... So where is St. Catharines?

OFFICIAL BBOMG ANNOUNCEMENT!



BBOMG 4 Official Registration Now Open and Charity Dinner Tickets Now On Sale!


BBOMG Registration:
Many of you have already communicated to us that you plan to attend BBOMG-4. However in an effort to ensure the information we have on file as complete and accurate, we have decided to create an Official BBOMG-4 Registration Form.

But I already registered... I sent an email/PM/phone call/messenger pigeon!
Even if you have already communicated to us on one of the forums, on FaceBook that you plan to attend, we ask that you please complete the Official BBOMG-4 Registration Form.

But I already see my name on THE LIST.
Even if your name appears on THE LIST currently, we ask that everyone complete the Official BBOMG-4 Registration Form. Don't miss out on the fun! Register today!



BBOMG Charity Dinner Tickets:
Once again this year we will be holding the BBOMG charity dinner on Friday August 10th. Dinner ticket purchase is available as part of the Official BBOMG-4 Registration Form
Back by popular demand this year is the live charity auction. We already have some items that will blow your mind and Hylton has been taking auctioneering lessons! Like last year the dinner will also include guest speakers and some "special guests".

What does the dinner include?
The dinner will include a full buffet and non-alcoholic drinks. There will be a cash bar open during the dinner. If you have any special dietary requirements please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate.

How much are dinner tickets?
Dinner tickets are CAD $30 each this year and payment through PayPal. Apologies for those who do not like PayPal. This is really the safest and fairest way to sell tickets. Also we need to pay for the dinner before the event so unfortunately tickets will not be available for purchase at the door. All that is needed for payments through PayPal is a credit card. There is no mark-up built into this price. The price covers our cost for the dinner and related fees.



Have you registered for the Powertrain Plant Show, Shine & Tour yet?
Just in case you have not yet registered for the Show, Shine and Plant Tour of the GM St. Catharines Powertrain plant, there is a direct link to their registration page at the end of the BBOMG registration!
Please make sure:
- You separately register for the Powertrain Show, Shine & Tour
- List your club affiliation as BBOMG (important!)
- Bring appropriate footwear (really important!)


(Thanks to Jason and the boys over at the offcial BBOMG forum for hosting the registration and all your help in putting it together!)
