Welcome to GBBCC
Tuesday, June 21st 2016 - George Christie led about twelve cars on an enjoyable cruise to Markdale where we had a wonderful tour of the Kickin’ Back Alpaca Farm. We learnt a lot about these fascinating animals. While similar to sheeps' wool, Alpaca wool is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. It is naturally water-repellent and difficult to ignite. Alpaca fiber is approx. 18 to 25 microns in diameter whereas human hair around 40 microns in diameter. After the tour, 23 of us ended our evening with a good supper at Steven's Bar-B-Q Restaurant in Markdale before driving home.
Saturday June 18th provided a warm and sunny morning which was perfect for the “First (and we hope annual) Georgian Bay British Car Club Swim & Picnic Rally”. Five member couples participated, driving over the well planned route, travelling 119.4 kms (74.19 miles). The secret finish location turned out to be Sunset Park in Collingwood where members enjoyed spectacular picnic lunches or great meals from the “CHIPPER”. Many thanks to Bob Muir for taking the time to plan and carry out this really fun day.
At our General Meeting on March 14th, 2016, Bill Rogers presented the President’s Trophy to our new President, Mike Arkless. Mike then presented Bill and Sharon Rogers with an Honorary Life Membership in grateful recognition of their excellent service to the success of our Club from 2006 to 2016
