CanAm: Aug. 19-21!
8 Posts
Hey guys, my names Kevin. I am one of the coordinators for CanAm Cruise, which stands for Canadian-American Cruise. This is an annual event that has been in the Niagara Falls Region for the past 3 years, but now it's our turn to host it in the States! BBQ, Raffle, Backroads cruise, and After-hours shenanigans, come and hang out with a lot of cool people!

On behalf of, Azine, and the Toronto Accord Club I would like to officially announce 2011's CanAm Cruise in Agawam, Massachusetts

Hotel Accomodations:

Red Roof Inn
1254 Riverdale Street
West Springfield, MA

This is more of a "budget" hotel with very basic amenities.

Room With Two Queen Beds: $59.99/night
Room With One Queen Bed: $55.99/night

Residence Inn by Marriott
64 Border Way
West Springfield, MA

This hotel is literally right behind the Red Roof, and is much nicer. The rooms at Residence Inn's are "apartment style" meaning they have kitchens with appliances, nice beds, flat screens and sleep at least four people.

Large "Studio" Room - Occupancy: 4 - 1 King, 1 Sofabed, 2 Rollaway beds permitted - $159/night
One Bedroom Suite - Occupancy: 4 - 1 Queen, 1 Sofabed, 1 Rollaway bed permitted - $159/night
Two Bedroom Suite - Occupancy: 6 - 2 Queens, 1 Sofabed, 2 Rollaway beds permitted - $229/night

Itinerary thus far:

Friday, August 19th 2011

  • People will be coming in from out of town, so we will plan dinner and drinks at a restaurant close to the hotels which is TBD.
Saturday, August 20th 2011 - Meet & Cruise Day



Italian Sporting Club
349 Cooper Street
Agawam, MA 01001

What: Car show, BBQ, Chinese Raffle to benefit Komen For The Cure.

Mandatory $10 donation per car (not per person). This will cover entry into the meet/show, participation in the cruise and a raffle ticket. All proceeds after overhead (food cost, venue rental, promotional items, raffle prizes, etc) will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Breast Cancer Awareness).


  • We leave the Italian Sporting Club for a one hour cruise through the hills and back roads of Western Massachusetts. The cruise route has already been planned out and it's going to be awesome.
4:30 - 5:00pm

  • Everyone will rendezvous at the Agawam Junior High School after the cruise. Reason for this is that people will be broken up into groups of 8-10 cars led by a CanAm Coordinator familiar with the cruise route. This is where everyone will meet up before we break off.

5:30 - 8:00pm

  • For people staying overnight, this will be the time for you to get back to your hotel rooms, rest a bit, and get cleaned up for dinner, drinks and shenanigans.
8:00pm - ??:?? Dinner and drinks at Hooters of West Springfield

  • I picked this location because for one, it's awesome, but more so because it's located literally right next door to the Red Roof Inn and the Residence Inn. It's a two minute walk, or five to ten minute stumble from the front door of Hooters to your hotel room. So there will be no need to worry about drinking and driving because you won't have to!! If you can't walk, Carrielynn with be providing piggyback rides from the restaurant to the hotel for 25 cents.
Area map of Hotels and Hooters:

A: Hooters of West Springfield
B: Red Roof Inn
C: Residence Inn

Cruise Route:

A: Start - Italian Sporting Club
G: End - Agawan Jr. High School

In the mean time, I need volunteers in the New England area to assist as Coordinators.

Duties of coordinators will be to help setup the meet/show, cook, break everything down, and lead groups of cars for the cruise. IIRC, the entire one hour cruise route has MAYBE three traffic lights, and I think two stop signs so it will be pretty easy to keep everyone together. The cruise leaders are just a precaution. I am friends with the Mayor of Agawam so I'm going to try and arrange an escort out of Agawam because that is where it is the most congested. I will also have authorization from the town to use the Junior High School as our rendezvous point, so we will have cooperation from local law enforcement. Because of this it will also be your responsibility to make sure everyone is on their best behavior.

Burn outs, mAd tYtE drIfTz and other general douchebaggery WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

Definitely a meet you don't want to miss! If you don't have very important plans, you should be here.

C'mon TSX'ers.
