Default Pontiac power cruise ins Phoenix area Nov-Dec

Hello out there. Since I have decided not to host any more events for this year, am planning some casual cruise ins in the Phoenix area for early November and December.
With Dr appts scheduled already in the area, I know I will be in town and would like to meet up and hang out with some other Pontiac power fans if interested.
Dates-
These will be held both Fri and Sat evenings the first weekend in November and the first weekend in December.
Locations- with Phoenix so large, my thinking is to have something on the east side one evening the the west side the other evening.
For the west side, the popular w Bell road cruise in is likely
For the est side, there have been some input to different areas so, is to be determined.
It would be nice to see some Pontiac power fans on these 4 evenings to meet, chat, get caught up, talk Pontiacs and have some food etc.
You can keep current on the Pontiac Heaven face book page.
any input appreciated, hoping to meet with some of you at the locations best for you. see you

Steve FYI the 6th is also the local POCI Chapter event in Case Grande. Not sure if that will cannibalize your gathering....

Hello and yes. I do plan to attend both events. Theirs is 10am-1pm. Mine starts are 5pm so, no conflict with a 4 hour spread between them. Plus the morning event is more geared to club people. I would not schedule a conflict.
When the first Az poci gathering was put together in 1981- I was there and have been a poci member since 1979. Was also a founding member of both Az chapters. Also served as President, VP and newletter Editor ( remember those)?, etc. been there, done that as they say.
hope you can attend.

The east side seems ore of a problem as to location but, for Nov 5 will plan on the cruise at Signal Butte and Main st. That event normally runs 3-6pm but, I want working class people to be able to attend so, we will have ours from about 5-8pm and see how it goes.
Dave Baldwin will be there with one of his Formulas and I will be driving either my 72 GTO or 78 Tans Am.
Stop by and say hello, bring a chair or 2. Grab a bite to eat too. It will be nice to talk Pontiac, see some old friends and meet some new ones.
So there will be 2 Pontiac power cruise ins that weekend- Fri east side and Sat west side. Looking forward to it.
any questions- email or call me direct- steve@pontiacheaven.org 480-899-7873 not into texting
