JULY 2019
Saturday, 20Afternoon Drive and Dinner in Port Dover4:00 pm

If you enjoyed reading the trilogy of Spitfire stories in the spring issue of Ragtop, then please consider joining us for an afternoon-evening drive to the Lake Erie shores together with the three protagonists (Owen, Jadin and Jeremy) on Saturday, July 20. The event has been proposed and organised by our three newest TTC members. The drive will be about 75 miles (120km) each way for most west of Toronto residents.

We plan on assembling at the Tim Horton's located on 1180 Wilson Street West (Hwy # 2), in Ancaster (at the junction with Garner Road West) at 4:00 p.m. Following a coffee, socializing and inspection of the participating cars, we will head via quiet country roads skirting around the Six Nations of the Grand River Reserve and onwards to Port Dover for an early supper at the Beach House, located at 2 Walker Street where at least one customer's review states, "amazing food, awesome staff and great value".

Owen advises that many people with classic cars tend to come together in Port Dover on Saturday nights in the summer months, which could be an interesting occasion to add a few more British cars to the mix and possibly promote greater participation at British Car Day.

In order to plan for the evening meal, we will require prior registration. Please respond by return e-mail by clicking here and providing the make, model, year of your car and the name of driver and passenger(s) no later than July 10, 2019.

Here is a link to the proposed route on Google Maps

Tuesday, 13Annual Club BBQ6:00 pm

We have delayed the BBQ until August because June and July are super busy with many events ... also the lakeshore parks have been suffering with flooding so hopefully Coronation Park will be in better shape for Mike Pearse and Warren Beech to cook up a storm and feed us with a bounty of hamburgers, hot dogs and all the trimmings.  The address for Coronation Park is 1426 Lakeshore Rd W, Oakville, ON. L6L 1G2 

This is typically our best attended event of the year so please drop by and enjoy a burger - courtesy of TTC - great company and of course savour a fine selection of Triumphs (and other marques) in the parking lot.   Look forward to seeing you there!


Sunday, 18Brits on the Lake - Port Perry9:00 am

This was taken directly from the Brits on the Lake website ...

2019 marks the start of our second decade presenting BRITS ON THE LAKE Classic Motoring Revival.  The last ten years have been remarkable and we have made many new friends and we have seen them return year after year in their hundreds to enjoy this unique event and of course our host community of Port Perry.  

The event has matured over the last decade and it is time to shake things up, to expand our horizons and to welcome new friends into our special time here.

With that desire for something new, we are pleased to open our doors in 2019 to include European, Import and Kit Cars along with motorcycles from other nations as well.  We are confident that this will enhance the spirit of the show by making it even more exotic and filled with variety adding even more beauty of design and engineering to our loyal British attendees.
