Club Fall Colours Tour and BBQ, 30 September
The OVTC Fall Colours Tour took place on Saturday, 30 September 30. Club members John and Sheila, with the assistance of their beautiful dog Pooh Bear, once again hosted a BBQ for us at their gorgeous home near Calabogie. The 10 cars that came together in Almonte for the drive were treated to a warm, sunny day that was made to order for admiring the changing leaf colours in the area. Mike S outdid himself with his tour route this year finding paved roads that were both scenic and fun to drive. After an excellent BBQ, the group split up with some heading home, some going into Calabogie and a few checking the racing going on at nearby Calabogie Motorsports Park. Thank you again for your hospitality John and Sheila.
Club Drive and BBQ, 2 September
The weather was perfect on 2 September for the 4 cars that met up in Ottawa to travel to Otter Lake on the Quebec side of the Ottawa river. Mike S. and Gord R. led the way in Mike’s TR6 followed by David and Lynda H. in a TR8, Terry and Barb M. in a TR4, and Bob T. and Fran W. in a TR8. The group met up with Gary and Betsy K. in their Spitfire near Otter Lake and joined Chuck H. at the cottage. We were greeted by at the cottage by the hard working Kim who had been busy preparing the food. Chef Gord did an excellent job at the BBQ and we all enjoyed a great meal on the lawn near the lake shore. Afterwards, some of the group went swimming and kayaking while the rest of us enjoyed some conversation and the waterfront view. Many of the group travelled home on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River following an excellent route mapped out by Gord. Thank you Kim and Gord R for sharing your beautiful cottage property with us and for your hard work in making the day so enjoyable for the OVTC group. Pictures on the photo page.
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 email@example.com.
