He we are again people!
Great Lakes GTG 7!
It's Buffalo's DubsintheBuff's turn to host this cool, laid back GTG. This is a great start to kick off the show season as a non-competitive, BBQ and BS sort of day.
Each year the GTG grows, we're hoping to continue the trend and have this be the largest one yet.
One new thing we're going to bring to the table this year is to help others that are less fortunate. It is few and far between that car clubs really give back to the community, so we'd like to take this opportunity to ask for you to support a local non-profit organization, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Niagara. Whether it be $1, $5 or $20...every dollar helps.
Venue and GTG Sponsor:

Black Forest Motorsport will be giving away a host of raffle prizes, so don’t be afraid to buy tickets. Rest assured that 100% of this money will be going directly to Big Brothers/Big Sisters.

Your entrance donation will score you 1 ticket but like I said above feel free to buy more!

Beaver Island State Park

-If you are coming here from south of Buffalo (Erie, Cleveland, etc) DO NOT TAKE I-190 that your directions will most likely give you. Pass that and take I-290 as I will give in the following links. You dont have to use that mid-point, thats only if you plan on heading in early and meeting up with the Buffalo crew for the cruise in.
-THERE IS CONSTRUCTION ON THE SOUTH GRAND ISLAND BRIDGE-THERE ARE SIGNS POINTING OUT "BUMPS".
-With that said here are a series of directions for people coming from any of the 3 possible ways in:
From Rochester/Syracuse/anywhere east of Buffalo:
From the East
From Erie/Cleveland/anywhere south of Buffalo:
From the South
From the North
No glass allowed in the park.
Restrooms will be open and available.
*Please note that the venue was not free, please be respectful of the park and keep it clean.
We wanted everyone to have 'smoothish' roads, restrooms and an easy to get to location for the out-of-towners.
For those of you that need to leave for food, etc. There are a handful of places to grab a bite within 5min of the park. Also a grocery store within the same vicinity.
Meetup for locals and early birds:

Get some coffee, wait for the slowpöks and head to the park around 11:15-ish.
For the rest of the people coming in, you can show up whenever you please.
