Notes from July FABAC Meeting

     The July dinner at McGinnis Landing was well attended by a noisy crowd.   Gary covered lots of ground and it looks like we could have a few runs coming up.
  • The recent passing of Helen and John was mentioned as was a quick update on Alex in Woodstock who is recovering from a recent illness.
  • Terry and Rick where thanked for hosting their recent outing and potluck lunch. 
  • The Great Race stop-over was attended by a few members. 
  • Windsor was the hot topic of conversation which saw a good turnout of FABACians including the lovely and talented Jim-n-Ellie-n-Jill.  Ernst's Marcos was a hit as was Kelvin's 'Hulk'.  
  • While many of us were basking in the sunshine in Windsor, Carolyn and David here attended the Stanley Church strawberry supper. 
**Upcoming stuff** 
  • Watch the site for news on the Rita and Rob cottage pot luck lunch Aug. 15th. 
  • Aug 18th will see us at the Stanley Fair.  Watch here for details. 
  • Bob Bentley will host a day gathering (NOT a car show) on PEI in North Rustico Aug. 26th. Details will appear here also. 
**Run Suggestions**
  • A run to McAdam for train pie. 
  • Regular ice cream runs. 
  • Self guided tours on Minister's Island. 
  • The new Reversing Falls Restaurant. 
  • We did NOT pick a spot for the August meeting.  Stay tuned for news.

Anyone interested in joining us for Stanley dinner?

A few of us went to this event last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. A church in Stanley has a ham dinner with strawberry shortcake dessert (real berries, real biscuits and REAL whipped cream) that starts at 3:00 on Saturday. $12 per person. I was going to suggest driving along the Nashwaak River and going that way rather than the Royal Road route. Maybe Larry or someone could advise on road conditions. Leave a comment here or contact me throught the email link at the bottom of this page. We could gather at 2:30 at the Exhibition grounds Tim Hortons.

Convoy to Windsor on Friday?

I'm sure some of those who are going to the British Motoring Festival on Friday may like to have some company. Someone should suggest a meeting place and time to muster—usually has been at the Ramada Inn (end of Princess Margaret Bridge) at 9:00am. Have a great weekend!

Plans for Windsor Auto Show

How many of us are going to Windsor this year? I am driving round with Landy rolling chassis on trailer leaving Friday morning(July 13th). Anyone going by ferry? See you there ready with the gin and tonics!!!!
