PEI Car Show 2017
 
Twenty cars left Aulac at 9 AM with 5 or more from NS joining us.  We met the remainder at Gateway Village on PEI shortly after 10 AM.  We toured the back roads leading to Cavendish and had lunch at Diner C. We left as a group of 48 cars heading to Brackley Beach with some rain falling.  Supper was a free BBQ hosted by the PEI group.  Thanks to those who gave prizes in order to raise charity funds.  At the Comfort Inn we convened at the breakfast area to play RLC game until 10 PM and then off to bed.  The next day started with drizzle but the sun soon came out and by the end of the weekend we had over GMCC 25 cars participating in the show.  Gilles and Margo won the C1 class and the charity choice award.  C6 was won by Roger and Angela and C7 by Bertrand and Annette from Balmoral.  Excellent weekend for all
 
Grand Lake Run
 
After a one week rain delay we set off from Magnetic Hill on September 03 with nine cars for a picnic in the Princess Park area of Grand Lake.  With Roger as the shepherd and Angie as clean-up crew, we managed to stick together and pick up a couple of Fredericton cars at Casey’s.  Since I’d never been on this secondary road before, it was quite a thrill to go through the back waters of the lake on the twisty roads.  At some points it was like travelling through the Everglades!  We stopped at the park for lunch and a visit and then travelled on through Minto and Chipman for the mandatory ice cream stop.  I have to confess that we did not finish the whole trip because we were keen to backtrack to Slocum’s for fresh vegetables and returned to Moncton in a leisurely fashion.  The weather was fine and the company was pleasant so I’d rate this a thumbs-up trip.
