NIGHT BOAT CRUISE WITH THE LLAMAS

NIGHT BOAT CRUISE WITH THE LLAMAS

2nd Llamas Boat Cruise!!!

Neil will be hosting this great event and asked if we would want to join him and the MOWCA.

As you know I still run the August Day Cruise so it will be a nice to choice from a night cruise a day cruise in August or both ... Lets make it a summer cruise event  :)

Patricia

organizer meet - n - greet

We are anticipating around 250 people. So, all party-loving dancers and non-dancers alike are invited. Dance music will be permeating both decks, primarily Salsa, Merengue, Bachata and Cha Cha, but we will slip in some club dance tunes for those who haven’t discovered Latin music yet, or like to mix it up a bit.

The Boat Experience

The Enterprise 2000 was designed and built right in the Toronto Harbour from 1997 to 1999. The 140 foot vessel was designed specifically for one purpose, to be the safest and most enjoyable party vessel on Lake Ontario. It will take us on a scenic tour around the Toronto Harbour, The Islands and Ontario Place. It is the only boat on the Harbour with an Atrium so that our guests from the upper deck can look directly through onto the dance floor on the lower deck! It provides 360 degrees of large unobstructed windows for a great view of the Toronto skyline. http://www.torontocruises.com/

Features

  • Big open deck at the bow
  • 2 large wood dance floors
  • State-of-the-art sound system
  • Great DJ
  • Fully furnished cash bar and cash BBQ
  • Salsa Dance Lesson

Cost

  • June 5 - July 4 price $35
  • At the door price $40

Please book early to benefit from the cost savings.

Boarding

Boarding commences at 7:45 PM and departs at 8:30. If you are late, we will wave at you from the boat.

Think of it as a house party on the water! There are no guest restrictions so please invite your friends to enrich the experience. I would appreciate your support to make this an unqualified success so it can become a regular llamas event.

Cheers,

Neil

    The people who socialized were great, as always. It was great to see you all! What can I say?... the rain dried up and the bathroom was clean! Yay!

    The music was not mixed up enough for newbies to participate, and those with salsa experience stuck with their partners. The music system was not working so announcements/music couldn't be heard outside so I missed any professional dance displays. It was so hot and stuffy inside (anyone heard of ventilation?) that we spent the whole evening on the front deck with no outdoor seating. Unfortunately, being the only outdoor space, so did all the smokers. There were absolutely no munchies available, and no food, or water was included. The only option was an overpriced hotdog (just what a gal dressed up to dance wants to eat when standing on a moving surface in high heels, what a picture that creates... lol!). Oh well.....I am still glad I got out to see the Toronto skyline at night and spent time with friends I got the chance to know better.

      that sucks....!!!

      July 13, 2013

      The generator feeding power to the sound system was malfunctioning. The food issue was poor communication between owner and crew. The owner of the boat has apologized and is now giving us a chance to enjoy an evening on the water at minimal cost ($12) on Saturday night, Aug 31st. The DJ was struggling to produce any sound and didn’t have a chance to mix up the music as initially planned. We like well organized events, too. So, please accept the ship owner's generosity, and our apology for not double checking the sound and food. If you do decide to attend, you can send me an email me at [masked] and I will put you and your guests on a list where you can pay $12 at the boat. FYI, all the parking on the street is free. Walking is good for health and pocketbook! ;-) I hope to see you there. Details are at the llamas site. Cheers, Neil

    Great to meet the people I knew and I also met new people that was great. It was very hot inside but like Jocelyn said not a variety of music only lots of salsa for the people who knows how to dance with their couples. I was surprised to pay $40.00 with no food so it became an expensive night. Paid $20 for parking $40 to get in and $5
    to eat a sausage and then to pay for drinks. Won't go on a boat cruise like that again. Thank god I was inside and I got to see the professional dance group they were great.

    Beautiful skyline and meeting some friends was the only positive. Feeling a bit riped off, 35.00 just to get on the boat and 20.00 to park. "Note to self", nevet do this boat cruise again :(

    Hi Joanne, We are now at around 250 booked. Internationally recognized dance troupe "Latin Energy" will be putting on a 15 minute dance show demonstrating world class Salsa and Tango, to start the evening. The cruise should be great fun.

    I realized that Pat is not around, so the easiest way to pay $35 at this point is to go to www.meetup.com/llamas and RSVP there. When you RSVP, you will be prompted to pay using PayPal. You will receive a payment confirmation, and we are creating a "making-changes" list for your easy access to the boat. Alternatively, you could simply pay $40 upon arrival at the boat, but I expect a bit of a line-up from all the facebook networking that has been going on. Your call.

    Cheers,

    Neil [masked]

    What time does it finish and can I pay my dues here as well? $12. I haven't paid yet

    July 2, 2013

  • Kathy N.

    I will be paying at the door, as I think I need a drink to find that most recent invitation. Glad it's only a 5 buck difference at the boat!!!. Wish all things in life that one wasn't able to access were that cheap when u finally got there, if u missed it because u were blind. Lol

    July 2, 2013

  • June

    A new updated invitation was sent june 29 which had the pay online feature . Check your meet up up dates and the latest one should allow you to do that.

    July 1, 2013

  • Kathy N.

    how do you access the pay pal feature, can't seem to find it.

    July 1, 2013

  • June

    There is a pay on line feature added recently where by you can pay through pay pal and it gives you a confirmation right away. Its $40 if you pay at the boat.

    July 1, 2013

  • Kathy N.

    I'm assuming we pay at the boat?
