Hagerty is hosting a small event on Tues Aug 7th at the Canadian Automotive Museum in Oshawa for a small group of insurance brokers.  This event is designed to give those brokers some additional information about Hagerty products as well as a chance to spend some face-to-face time with the owners of collector vehicles.  The goal is to make the vehicles less intimidating and to give brokers a chance to understand the passion owners have.  Several members of the Hagerty team will be flying out for this event as well.   Andrew is looking for approximately 15 collector vehicles (not all Triumphs) and their owners to participate.  The event will begin at 9 a.m. with an information session for broker partners.  At 11 a.m. Andrew will introduce owners and vehicles followed by a short drive (about 20-30 minutes) giving the brokers the experience to be driven around in classic vehicles (driven by the owner, of course).  After that Hagerty will host a lunch and repeat the same schedule in the afternoon.  Volunteers should be available from 11am-2:30pm.  If any club members are available and willing to participate it would be greatly appreciated; please let Dave know at dave.sims@cogeco.ca
