Creemore Vintage Festival - Saturday May 27th, 2017
My name is Sandra Green and I'm the organizer of the Creemore Vintage Festival in Creemore Ontario. I run the local community non-profit radio station here, CKAW 90.1FM and we want to bring visitors to Creemore to share with them why we love Creemore as well as celebrate the town for exactly what it is. There will be a vintage market, vintage bike event, art, design and coffee and so much more.
I love cars...I know nothing about them but I love cars and all I want to see on Saturday, May 27th is vintage cars. If you will agree to organize your club and your friends to come to Creemore on that Saturday for a ride and a park, I will personally donate $1 a vehicle on behalf of your club to Sick Kids Foundation. That means, if you can get 500 vehicles to come to Creemore on Saturday, May 27th I will donate $500. We can work out the logistics but I'd love to give to the Sick Kids Foundation on your clubs behalf. Did I mention we are running our event in partnership with Creemore Springs? So there's beer...
Here are some particulars:
Date: Saturday, May 27th, 2017
Location: Historical Downtown Creemore
What you need to do: Nothing, just bring yourself and your friends for the day. It's not a show, it's celebration of all things vintage. I hope this is something your members can get behind, I know you will be most welcome...coffee's on me:)

Addendum for Spring Fling 2017
"Every Car Has a Story". Quite true when it comes to our wonderful LBCs and often we see bits of those stories in the articles in our club magazines. This year, the Spring Fling will feature an event intended to bring more of these wonderful tales to the surface. All registrants are invited to participate in a new event by providing a write-up about your car's story. Submissions should be a single page, single spaced, 12 pt font, with space for one or more photos you might provide. Ideally, submission will also be brought to the event on a USB key for uploading to our computers. The MGCCT and the TTC have offered a prize for the winning stories in each marque, to be judged by the organizers and a representative from each club. Many (all?) will be published in the coming year in the Octagon or the Ragtop. Any questions or early submissions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

2017 RoadWarriors Trip to Stowe, Vermont - Sep 12th to 19th, 2017
The "Road Warrior" name was adopted by the members of the MGCCT who since 2004 have been driving long distance trips of 2,000 miles and more to various events, mostly to the NAMGBR and NAMGAR annual events taking place in various States and Provinces. So far destinations have included; Gatlinburg, Tennessee; Valley Forge, Pennsylvania; The Catskill's in New York; The Michigan Peninsula; Northern Georgia; the Eastern Townships of Quebec; Southern Indiana and just last year we drove to Louisville, Kentucky and back. During these trips we try to avoid the Interstate and 400 series highways as much as possible. These trips give many of us an opportunity to see places and back roads we would not normally cover in everyday cars and certainly help with the annual Long Distance Award.
In 2007 the "Road Warriors" drove to Stowe VT for the annual British car event, The British Invasion. (see www.britishinvasion.com) for more info)
For 2017, we are planning a return to this event. Bob Riddell and John Petersen have mapped out the route and planned the programme and a Schedule and Itinerary has been worked out and will be sent to those members who are interested in coming along.
If you have any doubts or are nervous about driving long distances in your MG, please contact any of the members who have participated in these drives. They will hopefully put your mind at ease.
Please advise by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject, Road Warriors 2017 if you are interested.
Only those who have indicated their interest will be provided with the schedule, itinerary and updated information.
