All British Car Day (ABCD) - 14 July - Volunteers Needed
The 2018 All British Car Day (ABCD) will again be held at Lakeside Gardens, Britannia Park, on the banks of the Ottawa River. This year there are two Featured Marques - TVR and Morgan. Click here to see a map and to help you find the event location. Each year, the ABCD organizing committee calls for volunteers from all Ottawa area British car clubs. These volunteers are critical to the success of ABCD. As most clubs participate, the demand on any one club, or any one person, is minimized. Volunteers are needed for such roles as food services, set-up, parking of participants and vendors, and gate duty. We ask for just 1 hour of your individual time, at some point during the day, to help with the event. This year, I will be leading a team to mark out the field for the vendors and the car rows, using a field chalking system like they use on football fields. If you are interested in volunteering, please let me (Michael Solonynko the OVTC club rep) know before the end of June 2018. If you ave a request for a particular time of day, or favoured role, please include that when you respond. We will be putting together the volunteer lists, in early July, and will let everyone know their role soon thereafter.
OVTC Summer Solstice Picnic - 23 June
Join us for a picnic at Kilmarnock Lock Station. See website calendar for complete details. Please confirm with Mike S. if you plan to attend.
OVTC Tool Library
Gary Kristjansson has volunteered to take the lead on this project. Gary would like to hear from all club members about their tool needs, and the tool inventories they might be willing to share with other OVTC members. Is there a specific tool that you might need on an occasional basis that is a bit too expensive to purchase, or do you have some tools you would be willing to lend to other club members? If you have ideas about how this service to members could be set up and managed, Gary would love to hear from you. Please contact Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BCCI Long Distance Awards
The British Car Council (BCCI) Long Distance Awards program typically runs from 1 April through 31 October each year. OVTC members are eligible for these awards. You can report your opening and closing mileage for 2017 in two ways.
