Thanks to Keith and Glenda for organizing the Spring Tour in the Bancroft area. We had a lot of fun. See the story in this issue of the Accelerator.
I encourage you all to take a drive to Flint, Michigan to attend probably one of the largest Buick street events in the USA.
Back to the Bricks August 14 - 18. Our members Dave and Becky Pettengill have been involved with this event for many years. Wendy and I will be going to Flint in August for this Buick event. We will be guests of Larry and Pam Splane.
There is an extensive web site for the 2018 events - go and check it out. If you like old cars, especially Buicks, this is the place to be in August.
It was great to see that Bill McLaughlin is back to normal and his newsletter is back too. Bill you were missed by a lot of people.
You will see some information below from Bill Bressmer and Carol Pierce who have volunteered to host a Fall Tour in the Prince Edward County area.
A big thank you from the board. Keep those Buicks rolling,
Belleville and the Isle of Quinte. September 19-22, 2018
Join the group for the last outing of old Buicks before they go into winter storage.
For those who may not have experienced Prince Edward County, our tour will travel through rural farms, wineries, and the small towns and villages of Wellington, Bloomfield and Pic-ton. This region was originally settled by United Empire Loyalists in the late 17th Century and retains the traditions of friendly hospitality and peace.
The tour will commence at 9:30 a.m., Thursday 19th, at the Travelodge Hotel, Belleville, just across from the bridge over the Bay of Quinte. We will stop frequently to visit a barn studio gallery, tour a craft brewery and end up in Picton for lunch.
Friday will begin with a short drive to CFB Trenton for a tour of the Air Force Museum including a collection of WW II aircraft.
Other activities will be announced later.
Make your reservations at the Travelodge Hotel Belleville,
