Pancake Lunch Report

     It seems that we always have gorgeous weather for the first run of the season.  The annual (many/most(?) of our runs are becoming annual affairs) drive to Dumfries was as expected.  While cool with a chilly breeze, the sunny skies and bare roads were a nice change from snow and ice covered trails.
    The maple syrup was flowing and we were told that it's been a pretty good season so far.   It was also nice that the ground was still frozen to keep the driveway from becoming a muddy bog.
    Thanks to Dan for organizing the day's outing.

Magazine project

If anyone has any unwanted "Classic + Sports Car" magazines at home, would you bring them to Kelvin's party.
I would like to organize a sharing with other members.

Thank you

Sue's Jaguar for Sale!

Hi David,
I see John and Alex have been in hospital. Please pass on our regards and best wishes.
We are moving down to Grand Bay Westfield and we don't have room for all our cars (4) and I am very reluctantly having to sell Sue's XK8.   So I thought I'd put it up for sale to the FABAC crowd before I put it anywhere else, to make sure it has a good home.  It's a 2004 model,  4.2 L  V8, with only 107,366 kms on it as of this writing.  MVI is valid until September August this year, not taxed as we only tax our Jags for the summer anyway.  Car is in excellent condition as you know and has been dutifully pampered, (as are all BBCs) never driven in the rain, let alone snow!  I am asking $17,500 for it but am open to sensible offers.
Attached are some pictures, I can send more if you need them, and would appreciate you putting this up on the FABAC site.
If you need any more info please let me know.

Pancake Lunch NEXT Sunday!!!


I have set up the run to Dumfries for a pancake lunch and to see the sugarbush for Sunday, April 15. We are due there at 1:00 PM so I think we should plan to meet at Brookside Mall and leave at noon. I would like people to let me know (email or phone 459-0282) if they are going by Saturday, April 14 so they know how many to expect.

Remind everyone that they operate on CASH ONLY.


Report onFABAC March Meeting

   Last Wednesday (the 21st of March) found us at our (likely) favourite haunt, McGinnis Landing.
   With Gary down south, David took the floor for the business portion. 
  • John B. is still in the hospital but doing well.  He's been joined by Alex who is probably back home as of this writing. We wish them both the best and a speedy exit back home. 
  • Kelvin mentioned that his annual St. George's Day feast is scheduled for 21st of April around 6:00 PM.  It's pot luck and all are requested to let Kelvin know what you plan on bringing.  Our April meeting will take place during this event. 
  • Dwight was thanked for arranging tonight's meeting. 
  • Kelvin also announced that his daughter will appear in a local production of 'Spam-a-lot' in June.  Further info will be listed here. 
  • Another reminder of the Windsor run was made. 
  • The spring Dumfries Sugar Bush run is upcoming April 15 and will be arranged by Dan.  (Details are posted in the post below.)
  • Joe announced that his E-Type is for sale.  He should remember that the Jag phone must be returned upon sale of the car.  If the Jag remains in the club, the phone will be presented to the new owner with a flourish.

The Great Race

At a meeting some time ago, I mentioned that Hemmings “The Great Race” was traveling through NB on its way from Buffalo to Halifax and that it might make a nice outing.  They will be in NB on Friday June 29th, having lunch in Saint John and overnight in Moncton.  A link to the schedule is attached.

Land Rover frame comes home

Yesterday I picked up the Land Rover chassis and masses of spare parts. Got a phone call to say it had finally arrived and left immediately to get it. Luckily it was all on pallets to no help needed. Thanks everyone for the offers of help. I will take a raincheck on those as I am sure there will be need for a workday soon.
