Default OMVA at AQUINO 2017

Aquino Tank Weekend, May 27th- 28th....less than a month away! For those who may not know, Aquino Weekend is put on by the Ontario Regiment RCAC Museum in Oshawa and is certainly a show not to be missed if you have any interest in militaria, history and military vehicles. This two day event offers something for battle re-enactments with operational vehicles, various displays and a marketplace.

The OMVA will be there!

OMVA Vehicle Display. We will be setting up a vehicle display area near the south entrance at Stephenson Road. See attached aerial view for location. For those members who can attend with an MV, please come out with your vehicle to help support this event and promote our interest/military heritage to the public. Those who do attend with their vehicle for display will be granted complimentary show admission ($20). We are planning for a “Military Vehicle Drive By” with vehicles being announced as they drive through the dirt arena and pass by the grandstand where the public is seated. If you do plan to attend with a military vehicle, please let us know so that we can prepare a list of attendees for museum/event staff. Please note that whether or not your vehicle is licensed for road use, insurance is required. Also note that movement or driving of vehicles is not allowed once gates are opened to the public unless for the purpose of participating in the grandstand drive by. Vehicles need to be parked in the display area before gates open at 9am.

OMVA Annual General Meeting & Complimentary Member BBQ. Our AGM will be held in the OMVA vehicle display area after gates are closed to the public on Saturday May 27th. The meeting is scheduled to start at about 5pm. Following the meeting, there will be a complimentary meet & greet BBQ for OMVA members and family. In order for us to ensure that everyone is looked after, we kindly ask that you RSVP if you will be there.

OMVA Militaria and Military Vehicle Marketplace. The OMVA will be managing the Militaria and Military Vehicle Marketplace that is located in the museum’s vehicle service bay/garage. This is a regular part of the event and is included with show admission. If you are a dealer of militaria related items or military vehicle parts and wish to set-up as a vendor, 8 foot table are available for rent at $25 per table. Table quantities are limited and we recommend you reserve in advance to avoid disappointment.

Contact us with regards to any of the above through this post, private message or by email to


Cheers, Terry.
