      Where: Cruise to Paradise from The Landing in Renton
      When: September 29th at 10:00 am. Departing The Landing at 10:30 am
      Why: To enjoy a cruise with fellow European car enthusiasts and to support Childhaven. Please bring cash to enter the National park that day. Paradise has some of the best trails and views around Rainier
      Who: All European car enthusiasts

      This will be the 2nd Annual Cruise to Paradise brought to you by BPCDubs. The charity we are raising donations for is Childhaven.


      Where to meet:
      The Landing
      Target
      1215 North Landing Way
      Renton, WA 98057

      We will meet in the far right corner of the Target parking lot. The second picture shows the location where no cars are parked. Remember we plan to leave by 10:30am





      **IMPORTANT INFORMATION**
      1. Please have a full tank of gas upon arriving at The Landing, we will not stop at any gas stations along the way.
      2. Please make sure you have used the restroom; we won't stop until we get to Paradise
      3. Please bring a copy of the map and directions so that you are familiar with the route in case you are separated.
      4. Please always feel free to ask questions.

      Route from The Landing to Paradise, leaving at 10:30am:

      http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Th...mra=ls&t=m&z=9



      The route that we currently have planned is 94.6 miles each way from The Landing to Paradise

      Donations:
      Childhaven is located in Seattle and their mission is, to prevent and stop the cycle of abuse and neglect through scientifically-supported programs that protect and treat children aged one month through five years, and their families.

      You can read all about their charity at www.childhaven.org/

      This year we will be collecting donations in forms of cash, or personal checks made out to Childhaven. You can also donate online by visiting Childhaven website.

      Now that all of the fun informational stuff has been addressed, the serious stuff needs to be discussed.

      **SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY!!!**
      This is without a doubt our #1 concern.
      We all will be driving as a group, and as a group, we all represent the European car enthusiast community. No one is to do any burnouts, illegal lane changes, or any passing on the shoulder. Everyone needs to keep their speed under control and make sure that they are not following cars in front of them too closely, whether they are with our group or not. SAFETY is paramount; do not drive like an idiot! Please do not make us have to call the police on any vehicles that are not driving in a safe manner.

      Please make sure that you are allowing other vehicles that are not part of our cruise to merge onto the highway. You don’t need to worry about being separated from the rest of the group. It is extremely unsafe to do this and we are not in a race to get to our destination, it’s called a cruise for a reason. Drive respectfully, safely, and courteously to everyone around you.

      This thread will be modified as we make updates or clarifications.

      Stay tuned for more BPCDubs cruises and events in the future.

      We hope to see you there!

      I might be down. Either way, I'll swing down and donate some cash to Childhaven. Such a good charity.

      Please see the original post. After further discussion, we don't want to step on anyone's toes and interfere with Pacific Waterland. We have moved this drive to Saturday, September 29th. I hope most of you will be able to make it!

      Also for those who are hoping to join the cruise along the way. You are more than welcome to do that. Last year we made a detour to meet with some people and they never showed up. This year if you want to join, just wait along the way on the shoulder and join when we drive past you.

      Thank you all.

      Just a small update:

      For those who want to join us along the way, we should be passing South Hill around 10:30 (if we leave on time). Best thing to do would be to find a place to park along Meridian and join once we pass you.

      Saturday calls for good weather, so it's going to be a very fun cruise!

      Yes, that is correct.
      Probably will be in Puyallup closer to 11 ...

      Only a couple of days away.

      I missed this. I went to a smaller meet but I drove to the exit off the 512 ~11:00am and I was hoping to catch everyone driving past and I guess I got to Meridian too late... Lets see some pics!
