Go-Kart outing this Saturday (06/17)

Post your northern Taiwan events here! (Events in Taipei and Xinbei should be posted in the Taipei / Xinbei Events forum.)
Forum rules
This forum is for the listing, promotion, and discussion of the specifics of events in northern Taiwan (but not Taipei/Xinbei). Please include a date in your title (e.g. 3/25) and - in the post - an address in English if possible. If you are providing the information in the form of an online photograph/flyer/poster, it is also advisable to provide the essential details in text as well, so as to facilitate ease of cut-and-paste.

As we wish to encourage people to post their events here, negative commentary isn't welcome in the Events forums. You are, however, more than welcome to post the same debate-encouraging negative criticism of bands, artists, etc. in the Arts & Entertainment or other appropriate forums.

Please PM the Moderators or Admin if you have any concerns or queries.

Still not sure how to get there from Taichung. Could you give directions to the go kart area if I were to leave from Taichung Gang Road and Wenshin Road. I'm not sure where the Coastal Highway is. Thanks for any extra directions.

If you take the car from Taichung, you can probably take freeway #3 North and take the Zhunan exit. Hwy 61 should be marked on the signs there, but I am not 100% sure as I am not that frequently in that area. But if you look at a map, Freeway #3 crosses Hwy61 at the coast by Zhunan. Freeway #3 makes a turn away from the coast at the intersection.

I just checked mordeth directions on a map, and they actually pass by the train station very closely, just on the opposite side of the restaurant. So when you come into Zhunan, you will see a rather new, large bridge on the right that goes over the train tracks. Go over that bridge follow the ring road which bends to the left. Here it gets tricky. I think there are little blue signs for the train stations, turn left. If I remember correctly, the roads narrows down by a 7-11, turn right there, this should be the road with the restaurant. But if you get close to the train station, give me a call.

PM me for phone numbers.

Go-Karting was fun. Thanks for the challenging race mordeth, it is really hard to keep up with you. I think I will have to loose 20kg before next time. :oops:

Also thanks to L & A for joining us, was nice meeting you, and the swim after the race was just perfect.

If there is such an event in Taichung, I would try to make it out there.
