Update: now 15 cars by 12 Jun 18.  Mac has a nice drive arranged with a lunch stop at the Opinicon Lodge 22 Jun. Even folks who aren't going to Kingston may join us for lunch. Final details and numbers with Mac to be coord this week and he must know exact numbers for lunch. Email will fol. After lunch Kingston invasion cars should expect to arrive at the Ambassador by 1345. Further Update: Ok gang, here's the plan for heading to Kingston:

Mac & Sherry will meet us in the Perth Brewery parking lot around 10:30 on the 22nd.  John & Margo, I guess that's where we'll see you as well. The Butt, Dobbs, Dunfield, Filsinger, Jefferies, Rozema, Teschner and Timleck cars to meet at the Big Stop for a 8:15 departure. To avoid the Hwy 17 construction (if it's still going on), we will probably drive down 41, Bulger's Road to Kellys Corner - pick up the Klobouk, Krueger and Oattes cars there about 8:45 (please confirm Mike, Bill and Bruce). Then on to Burnstown to pick up the Armishaw car at the 4 corners at about 9:30.  Then on to Perth to meet with the Dewey and Blakso cars, making it 14 in total. Brydges are travelling dir to Kingston.  Mac can take over from here and lead us to the Opinicon Resort (Chaffey's Lock) for lunch for 11:30.  We are then only 45 minutes or less from Kingston.

So here's the thing - I need you to notify Mac & Sherry and me VERY SOON that you intend to have lunch at the Opinicon and that you will be meeting at the appropriate pick up spot OR, that you are on on your own and will meet up with us in Kingston.

Don't forget lawn chairs, radios if you have them and Valley Vettes shirts/badges if you have them.  If I have forgotten anything, please, anyone chime in. https://www.facebook.com/easternontariocorvette/

However, Mac has a cruise arranged to arrive in Merrickville for breakfast, shop, another short cruise then home. We'll pretend the car show is still on. Final details will be coord with email.  Update: 

The idea is take a run to Merrickville on the day of annual car show (that will not be this year sadly).  A great idea from Mac & Sherry.  Here's there plan:

Meet at the LCBO parkng lot in Merrickville for 8:30.  Parade to our regular parking spot (as if the show was on) and then go across the street for breakfast.  Do a little shopping in Merrickville then leave at about noon or sooner.  Head to Prescott and Windmill (Battle of Windmill site) - see some nice homes along the St. Lawrence and the have a picnic lunch at Windmill and tour the site.

 

Those interested please advise Mac and me so we can plan.
