Christmas Gala - December 12th, 2017

 

Despite the wintery road conditions, 65 GBBCC members bravely drove to Blue Mountain Golf and Country Club to attend our annual Christmas Gala.  "Burger Bob" and the golf club staff did a great job of providing a delicious Christmas dinner.

 

This social occasion was enjoyed by everyone and many members joined in with dancing to the wonderful music of Wayne Buttery.  Our members generously donated a large amount of food and some money for the Collingwood Salvation Army Food Bank.

 

It was a great start to the Christmas holidays.

 

Ear Muff Cruise – November 15th 2017

 

Fifteen hardy members plus a guest enjoyed a rather late in the year, Ear Muff Run.  Led by Mike Arkless, the group drove from Thornbury to Elsie’s diner in Owen Sound.  Another three members joined us for lunch, where we enjoyed some excellent food and service.  Although the weather was quite miserable, three British Cars (all Jaguars) took part in the drive, with other members using their regular cars. 

 

MS Stig and Jean Claude - aka Sharon and Bill Rogers drove off with the award for best Ear Muff costumes.

 

Adopt-A-Highway Fall Cleanup – October 1st 2017

 

With what started off to be cool and windy morning, the day turned out to be a very nice, Autumn day.  Fifteen members, (one on the disabled list), turned out to carry out our community commitment of picking up trash in the Grey County Adopt-a-Highway program on our designated section of Grey Road 2, which we have been doing since 2006.

 

Many thanks to all of you (see below) for taking time from your busy schedule to suit up in the reflective vests and rubber gloves to carry out our commitment.

 

Barrie Hill Farm – September 26th 2017

 

Jim Spruce, together with 3 other members, led a drive to the Barrie Hill Farms complex, starting at Sunnidale Corners on September 26th.  All enjoyed the scenic tour, the sunshine and shopping for fresh farm produce.

 

After filling up with fruit and vegetables, the group then drove on to Linda’s restaurant for a hearty lunch - very good food, service and value, and well worth stopping there if you feel hungry on the way back from Toronto!

 

Thanks to Jim for setting up the drive.

 

Pop Up Run – September 6th 2017

 

15 members with a total of 9 cars enjoyed an afternoon drive to the beautiful village of Creemore, organized at short notice by Mike Arkless, as an informal and impromptu event. 

 

With the help of George Christie, we explored some wonderful driving roads along the Pretty River, through to Singhampton and then to Creemore where the members enjoyed a variety of activities - including shopping, a visit to a cafe and a pub. 

 

Five members joined a tasting and guided tour of the Creemore Brewery. This is highly recommended for anyone who has not enjoyed this experience before - well worth the hour that we spent there. 

 

We were joined on the drive by two new GBBCC members, David and Lisa Philp with their recently acquired MGB roadster.

Please check our Past Cruise Routes under Past GBBCC Events

 

This section of the website will contain details, including some maps of cruise routes that GBBCC has taken in the past few years so that our members may use them for planning future cruises for their own enjoyment or to make it easy for you to pick one and volunteer to lead a club cruise. 

 

It is recommended that these routes be driven prior to leading a cruise to ensure roads are in good condition and are not under construction.

 

Many thanks to Ralph Kertcher who has re-created these routes for our website.
