SPRING TOUR

MAY 24, 25 and 26 - SIMCOE / DELHI, ON

We are hosting a Spring Tour in our new neighborhood, the Delhi and Simcoe area of South Western Ontario. Please do not confuse the town of Simcoe with the Simcoe County, which is much further North! Friday eveningwe are going to host a dinner for everyone who wishes to see our new place. Saturday, we will have an earlyish start and travel to the Dowler Karn museum, and view over 10,000 oil related collectibles, cars, trucks and lots of Petrolia. After lunch in Tillsonburg we’ll travel to scenic Port Dover, on the shore of Lake Erie and visit the Marine Museum. Sunday morning a scenic drive along HWY 3 and then along the banks of the Grand River take us to Brantford for brunch. There we can enjoy each others company before heading our separate ways.

I hope that you will give serious consideration to joining us, on all or at least part of the tour. If you want more information, please call or email me. 519-582-4621, kcoby4176@gmail.com

- Thank you, Keith and Glenda Corby.

Our focus is on McLaughlin, McLaughlin-Buick and Buick Automobiles.

Board Meeting

Hello from Alliston.

Wendy and I wish you all a very Happy New Year and we hope to see some of you during the touring season.

As we mentioned in the last issue, the contents of our MBCC Library now reside inthe AACA library in Hershey PA. A nice young man drove up from Detroit in December and loaded the 16 boxes into his van and made his way back to Detroit.

I prepared a fully document listing of all the material along with a letter explaining that all the material was a donation to the BHA.

In March we will donate a considerable amount of literature about Col. Sam McLaughlin to Parkwood. I have already sent them a list of the material and Samantha informed me that we had lots of info that they do not have.

We will consider, as the date approaches, a proposal to donate any and all of the clubs remaining funds to Parkwood.

Keith Corby is preparing a Spring Tour in the Delhi area. Registration form is with this issue. We hope to have a good turnout and look forward to another member stepping up to organize a fall tour.

Have a great summer with your Buicks. Wendy and I are heading for Oklahoma City in June for the BCA National followed by the After Tour.
