We will be using the same large modern shelter as in the past. It has always been very clean with lots of nice tables.

Been thinking of coming back down with another member of the Ontario chapter but no promises yet. Bill, do you know if the GM dealer has the big cruise night at their dealership on the Fri night of that weekend? I met up with Bob & Alice at the cruise. Great time as well.

I don't know but you can ask Bob or Alice when you RSVP they probably know or can find out. I didn't make it last year it was the wife's 45 class reunion, but I plan to be there this year. Hope to see you there.

GM Dad Sorry you can't make it this time. Don I bet it makes the trip, after all a Studebaker has its roots in Ohio. I got a new Silverado LT and depending on the weather forcast I might see if it will go that far. Last time we drove the roadster I got to drive a hundred miles home in the pouring rain and since I've only been out of hospital about four weeks that might not be advisable this time. I might put the roadster on the trailer and bring it along.

The picnic was great, we had members from Canada, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky in attendence today with some of the finest inline rides on display. I chickened out and drove my Silverado instead of my roadster becaused the weather person said 50% chance of rain and it never rained a drop, story of my life. We had so much food that when everyone was finished it looked like no one had ate yet and it it was all fantastic. Thanks goes out to Bob and Alice Garrett for another great chapter picnic.

Hank their was a lot of cameras there, but mine was home in the 41 Plymouth. I was so mad at myself as there was a lot of very very nice cars there that I had never seen before.

That's a shame.
It's always cool to see different inline rides.

It was a good time, with good food and great conversation and some mighty pretty machinery that i didn't get to see as much as i wanted.

Some of us got to watch, and assist as we were able, as Tom Langdon took down his famous "Cadillac 261" in his beautiful '39 Suburban to discover the source of a valve train problem. It turned out to be one broken pushrod, and some others severely worn. Bob Garrett went to his garage and came back with a complete set, used but in excellent condition. Tom was able to drive back to Michigan with a lovely exhaust note, truly grateful that it wasn't the camshaft!

Bob and Alice do wonderful work in hosting this event, and i am one of those who look forward to it every year.

God's Peace to you.
