Default At the risk of being abused.

Cut and pasted from last year, but all that changes are the dates:
And we do have a budget for those who register early.


CANADA Day in Preston Ontario

I'm once again looking for Veh Owners in the neighbourhood on JULY 1 2010.

"Cambridge Celebrates Canada Day is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this year. Each year we attract more people to the city of Cambridge for our Canada Day Festival and for the 2009 event we intend on increasing our attendees by promoting outside the Region of Waterloo. We are now listed in EFO. This will be a televised event.
The Largest Canada Day Parade in the Country will take place on Wednesday July 01, 2010 at 1:00PM starting from Preston Auditorium located at Bishop and Hamilton Streets. The parade will then proceed down King Street 4 KM and will disband at Kin Stadium inside Riverside Park.
Cambridge Celebrates Canada Day committee would like to invite you to participate in our parade for the 2010 event"

Contact me if you wish to participate. Stewart Loy, Jordan Baker and I have a plan in place from many years experience.

Many thanks

If there isn't a WW2 vehicle for me to drive, I'd be happy to include my camouflaged TJ Jeep in the parade. It may be modern, but it looks lean and mean and will fit several veterans as required. I'm sure there would be no complaints. Let me know.

Jordan Baker" Actually neither are up and running yet. But Im supposed to get my MB engine back Sat Hopefully the carrier isn't too far behind that but I still have a lot of work to do to prep the hull. "

When are you sticking these back together?

If I'm around, I wouldn't be adverse to twisting a few wrenches...

Default Canada Day parade in Preston

I have an 1955 M211 CDN that I would be happy to bring to the parade. Not restored, but original. Let me know if you want it for the parade.

Would also consider the Warrior Day parade in Sept, depending on the date.

Please let me know.

Default Just a reffresher-

to those of you still interested,

I got a new heart put into BuckytheWonderCarrier and he's running like a top.

This is always an excellent parade, and I may have a few $ for veh owners who book through me.

I was told King & Bishop Streets, before 1100H. I'll be there between 1000 and 1030H just to be safe. Maybe Mr. Fitton can confirm?

I doubt it, Stewart. With no evident camping and no serious MLU partying expected, it's a hell of a long way to go for a few hours. Who else is going?

Agreed, Mr. Fitton. Outstanding in all regards! It seemed the whole damned town was out! My kind of people, and it was a privilege to be there representing our Armed Forces past & present.

Thanks,

Geoff
