GEORGIAN BAY BRITISH CAR CLUB
The purpose of the Georgian Bay British Car Club is to increase the popularity of our common interest, British cars.
The Club is open to any British car owner (sorry, no motorcycles) and the vehicles may or may not be roadworthy. We also welcome people who share our common interest in British cars, even if they currently do not own one … maybe we can help you find one?
There are many car clubs in Ontario but as they are not conveniently located for people living in the Georgian Bay area, most of us find it difficult to take the time to attend their meetings and events. Our membership stretches from Owen Sound in the West; Midland and Barrie in the East; Orangeville in the South, with some members from Toronto who have weekend places in our area.
Our intent is to complement existing clubs and to encourage participation in each other’s events where possible.
The aim of the GBBCC is for us to promote our knowledge and love of British cars. By developing relationships and friendships, the Club is a friendly, social gathering place for sharing our interest in driving, maintaining, and enjoying our precious “vehicles”. We strongly encourage the participation of our spouses and children, so that Club events are fun for everyone.
The following British Marques are in the club:
- Austin Healey
- Ford (England)
- Land Rover
- Rolls Royce
Regular GBBCC Activities
Meetings: We meet regularly on the second Monday of every month (except October & December). We have guest speakers, "Show & Shine",
share stories about British cars, technical sessions, talk about events, show movies, etc. Please see "How to Find Us"
Car Shows: During the summer season, we hold "Show & Shines" before our monthly meetings. In 2012, we held the "Brits in the Village" car show in the village plaza at Blue
Mountain resort with some 57 British cars on display. Due to its success, we were invited back to Blue Mountain on May 25th 2013 and we had some 73 British cars
Cruises: During the driving season (May to October), we have regular cruises every month. Some cruises are scheduled for weekends to different events, locations, places of interest, etc. We normally end up somewhere for refreshments with our friends. These are family events.
Vehicles: We encourage members to bring their British vehicles but if they are off the road for any reason, or the weather is poor, please come in your regular vehicle - this club is about people, not vehicles.
Other Car Clubs: Georgian Bay is a wonderful area to tour and we have had visits from various car clubs, including the Niagara British Car Club, MG Car Club of Toronto, Toronto Triumph Club, Jaguar Owners Club, Headwaters British Car Club, Morgan Car Club, Studebaker Car Club, etc. Please come and visit us.
We hope that you will come by sometime and join us for fun among friends and British cars! Please see "How to Find Us"
