Default D-Day Mil Veh Registration for Ottawa Ceremonies.

I thought I would pass on the following reminder from one of the event orgainzers, Eric Booth.

Regards,
Ansis Strenge

Eric Wrote:
I am sending this out as it is important that those who wish to
particpate in the D-DAY events in Ottawa, namely the Military Vehicle and Veterans Parade and the display around the National War Memorial during the National Ceremonies 06 June, that you MUST register.

If you do not register there will be no place allotted for your
vehicle around the Cenotaph and you will not be permitted to join the Parade.

Registering will ensure that you have a spot allotted in both events,
regardless if you decide you cannot make it at the last minute due to
mechanical problems etc.

We are using the registration forms to assign Veterans to those
Vehicles, place the vehicles in a display and parade order and to provide an information sheet for the media. I will also have to get back to the Veterans and advise them what vehicle they will be in.

If you are planning to attend the registration forms must be received ASAP.
