Default will there be an official public release event for the sti locally?

i'm reading the other posts from the us and SOA did banquet-type shows where VIPs and organized groups of enthusiats were able to watch an unveiling of the STi. although they weren't permitted test drives they were allowed to sit inside the car and play around with stuff (someone posted a pic of getting everyone wet with the IC sprayer with the hood open ).

will there be something like that here on the lower mainland from subaru canada? when i had talked to steve last week at specialty he mentioned he didn't even expect to see one sit in the showroom for display only. all their allocated STi's were accounted for with preorders and basically would be picked up by their new owners upon delivery to the dealer

i was thinking maybe they are waiting for the upcoming auto show to show the STi locally, but i doubt they would let us near it...

will we have to do an VIC camp out in front of the dealership as if it were boxing day in order to get a good look at one?

Quite frankly, I'd rather not touch it until I'm ready to buy, I'd either do one of two things:

1.) Bury myself in debt trying to afford it
2.) Make the time period from now until I'm ready to buy more painful.

He's talking about that Subaru Drive event that was held near the expo area in the spring of 2001.

Perhaps there will be a press car, sorta like the 22B that the media used for tests, etc. (Or like the first 2nd-Gen yellow MR2 in Canada that my co-worker once owned )
