12th Annual CalCoastal NSX Canyon Drive - A NOT To Be Missed Event!

6 May 2008
California Coast
Event is a GO!!!

Please read below

Greetings fellow NSXers,
Without all of you guys supporting and attending these events, they would not exist or even be planned.
I want to thank all of you for joining in on the festivities all these years!!! It's been FUN

Ok, I'll go directly to the business end of this post. With any event, they are minimums that need to be met for the event to happen. Caterers and even facilities need a certain head count for us to proceed.
Unfortunately, we are about 15 people short of this event happening. I want to give some feet draggers the benefit of the doubt and prolong the cancelling of this event a few more days. At this point, ANYONE can pay and attend this event. If you have friends that are on the fence, please give them the little push they need. Please call, email, text or FB your contacts. Any help is appreciated!

Everyone will be refunded if the decision is made to (gulp) cancel this epic event.

Keeping my fingers crossed,
John :wink:


The 12th Annual CalCoastal NSX Canyon Drive is Sunday October 14th 2012.

Please "Subscribe to this Thread" as more details and updates will follow as we get closer to the event - Thank You!!

The CalCoastal NSX Canyon Drive is the longest running annual NSX event in the USA, other than NSXPO. As in the past the Canyon Drive will take you through very scenic routes and technical roads in Southern California. What could be better than a "leisurely" drive with a group of NSXs in the SoCal sunshine. After the drive you will have lunch and mingle with old friends and friends you have not met (yet). If you been on a CalCoastal Drive then you know this is a "Not To Be Missed Event". If you have never been on a CalCoastal NSX Drive you need to sign up NOW and make plans to have a blast in your NSX!

We always say "this is a not to be missed event" and this year in particular!! We have a very SPECIAL EVENT planned at the end of the drive. This is not just a drive with food, mingling and raffle at the end. It is much much more. So, if you miss this drive you will be forever kicking yourself in the ASS.

What a great response - Thank You!!
Over the past month we worked feverishly to squeeze as many people in as possible. The good news is WE DID IT!! We have expanded the the list to include everyone on all three lists. For those that did not attend NSXPO in Colorado this will be our mini-version of that great event! Let's call it NSX-Fest

We are seeking sponsors for this drive. If you, your company or anyone else would like to donate please PM CalCoastal NSX via NSXPrime or email us at [email protected]. BTW - donations do not have to be NSX or car related. They can be either product, services or cash.

CalCoastal NSX is renting radios for the day. The rental costs are:
$14.00 for the day plus a $100.00 refundable deposit* when reserved and paid in advance. Since we cannot predict how many radios we need the "day of event" rental has been removed - reserve your radio today

*Unfortunately the deposit is now required as we have had radios walk away from our events and not returned. Reserve yours ASAP - because we do run out of rentals! To reserve a radio PM CalCoastal NSX via Prime. We will respond by placing a 'R' by your name on the list - thank you.

If there is a "+" by your name we know you own the proper radio for the drive. If there is no "+" by your name PM us to confirm that you either own or are borrowing a radio. Reminder - This drive requires that each vehicle has a UHF radio with the frequency of 464.55. Those with NO Radio by their name need to secure a radio ASAP.

For all you last minute shoppers and fence sitters - we are extending payment until 2:00 PM today (Friday 10/12) and forms receipt until Saturday (10/13) at 11:00 AM for last mail delivery. We will accept electronic forms submission PDF format only. If you submit electronically you MUST bring originals to the meeting on Sunday - TY.

Now the slicing and dicing begins!! When you pay you will be moved up the list in the order that you pay.

All payment records will be validated through PayPal's time stamp.

Q - Why we limit the number of people on the drive/lunch?
- This is not just a drive, the event is designed for the entire group. The lunch and raffle are the actual end of the event, not the drive itself. So separating the group would not work. With that being said, we only take the number of people a particular restaurant can accommodate. This year we fell short because the response was overwhelming. As of right now there are 95 people in 53 NSXs that we are trying to squeeze into a venue. There are not too many places that can handle this large number of people. Logistically, it is a nightmare for a restaurant to have 60+ people show up at one time and be ready to serve in a timely manner.
Q - Why does CalCoastal charge for their events?
-We do not charge for the drive itself. The charges are for the lunch that we negotiate in advance and other memorabilia such as shirts, We do this so we can get a firm commitment for the restaurant or to get group pricing on NSX swag. CalCoastal has been doing this for 16 events over the past 11 years and we have a great reputation of putting on quality events. To see last years reviews go here: http://nsxprime.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1486646&postcount=107.
Q - Why does CalCoastal require UHF radios?
-There are two primary reasons that CalCoastal requires the use of UHF radios. 1. Primarily for safety. 2. Because they are the most reliable in changing conditions. The UHF standard was pushed out by the NSXCA for their quality and durability. In many places we drive there is no mobile phone service, two-way radios are the only communication option. Car-to car & group communication is very important for safety. When driving in a group it is helpful to know in advance about road conditions, gravel, water, pedestrians, bicyclists, stalled vehicles, radar alerts and the unfortunate broken down NSX. UHF radios out power FRS or GMRS radios by far so the signal travels further than these weaker powered radios. This is why we recommend 2 watts and higher. We understand that FRS and GMRS radios are less expensive. However, you get what you pay for and in the case of two-way radios this is evident. We would rather see someone purchase a quality radio for $150.00 and have it last 10 years as many do (ask LMR about his Unidens) then to purchase a cheap low quality radio that may only last 3 years. With Internet search, eBay and Craigslist great deals are out there, you just have to look.
Thank you and best regards.

I might have to make the drive up for this one, but depends on work so I can't commit until later.

Update: I won't be able to make it. :(
