Future GBBCC Events
Georgian Bay British Car Club Members 11 June 2021
I had originally intended this to go out at the beginning of the week, but as that did not happen, I have taken the opportunity to update it with some more current facts.
We all looked forward to the stay-at-home order being rescinded, but the initial reality was 'What changed?' Really, very little. Retail was still curbside only. Talk of patios and outdoor dining, but nothing more. Fortunately, today brings more clarification. Retail does have an indoor component. Patios and outdoor dining are permitted, as soon as these establishments can restaff and restock.
Unfortunately, even an event as benign as a 'Show and Shine' is a non-starter. With the outdoor limit still at 10 persons, it is difficult to imagine who could set up when there is no room left for visitors!
Christine Elliott has suggested that the next stage (which would include among other things larger numbers for gatherings) could be sooner than later. With number looking encouraging – both the population, % vaccinated, and the daily case counts dramatically down – we can only hope she is correct.
It has definitely been disappointing, with all the great touring weather that we have had lately, not to be taking advantage more often.
The executive is looking very forward to being able to organize and promote get-togethers this summer, as soon as the regulations permit us to.
Doug Simpson, Events Co-ordinator
Public Health Ontario are advising people to limit activities outside of the home, and to avoid all non-essential trips. This is for the benefit of residents, healthcare and emergency response workers.
GBBCC supports this guidance and will not be promoting or organizing any driving events until such time as the advice allows for such activities
We want to encourage our GBBCC members to lead cruises during the driving season (any day or time of the week). You decide on the date, the route, where the cruise goes, and the duration of the drive.
You can refer to Past GBBCC Cruise Routes for ideas.
Your cruise can include anything that you feel may be of interest to our members and can include a stop for refreshments. It is your choice as to what we do and hopefully, we can attract many GBBCC members to participate. Any member of the GBBCC Executive can assist you plan your cruise.
