We recently received an email on our feedback site from a lady in Oregon.  It seems that her son Alex was doing a school project and decided on Automobile History.  In the course of their research they happened upon the Rideau Lakes Website.  He checked out our car pictures and really enjoyed them.

 

We are thrilled to do what we can to support and foster the interest in the Antique Automobile Hobby.  So we are very appreciative of the message we received!

The weatherman forecast was for a hot humid & record breaking day. this did not discourage a group of Canada's Capitol A's and Rideau Lakers from participating in the tour planned by Mel & Keitha Black and Joanne & Harry Macdonald.


Some gathered at the Tim Horton's in Richmond, and after Keitha gave us our written instructions & explained there would be no corner cars, we fired up the engines, rolled down the windows, and headed to Carleton Place. There we were to meet up with the rest of the group.


  After a short "meet and greet" it was just a short run to the first stop,  a local Flea Market.  While wandering around the market some found items they just had to have.  In fact one lady bough...

What a great day for a drive. Perfect weather!


We grouped up with 8 cars led by Earl Moore and Doris Porteous for the drive to Lanark.  We had another car join us at the camp for a total of 9 antique cars.  


There was also a Mustang, two Slingshot motorcycles and a police boat.  So the Camp Quality children and councillors had lots of options for rides.  They are able to go in as many vehicles as they want as often as they want.  What a great opportunity for everyone. 

We need to thank Camp Quality for giving us this opportunity and for all the hard work they do for these children.  While the drivers were busy giving rides the rest of us sat in the shade and talked to the Camp Quality group, the group providi...

The folks and friends of Rideau Lakes enjoyed

a wonderful day and evening on Saturday, July 8.

Following the wild rains of Friday night, nineteen eager members of Rideau Lakes Car club and nine cars gathered at Nancy and Earl Weir's for a 10:30 start.  Chris Bryant with his friend Margaret led us on a delightful tour of the old villages of Rideau Lakes. Villages like Toledo, Addison, Athens, Phillipsville and Delta.  Villages where you saw the homes and stores where once farming was king.  Must admit some of these villages may not have been on the original tour but there were a delight none the less.

 

We stopped for ice cream at the Forfar Cheese Factory in Plum Hollow.  Now ice cream was just one option along wi...

The Rideau Lakes members who toured with the Kawartha Lakes Region did all that and more when we toured the byways of the Kawartha and Haliburton lakes north of Lindsay.


Friday am June 9, 6 cars met at County Fair Mall ready to go and anticipating the ride. We headed to Perth on Hwy 7, after stopping for lunch in Norwood and a leg stretch we moved on to our Motel in Lindsay around 3 pm.


  Bud and Sharon Murray lead us on to Tracey and Tom Murphy's where the Kawartha members hosted a delicious beef dinner with salads and dessert. No one left hungry.   

Saturday morning drivers meeting at 9 am,  leaving at 9:30, we had a total of 22 cars. Beautiful drive, stopping at a Maple Sugar Shack for a catered lunch of pulled pork...

It was a cool rainy morning but we still showed up at A&B Ford in Smiths Falls for our annual Touring Inspection! We inspected 13 vehicles in the next couple of hours. And Earl has a few more to see so we won't have an Unlucky Number of inspections done. After all the cars were checked out 10 cars loaded up for a short drive led by Terry and Sharlene Irish. The weather decided to co-operate and stop raining. It was nice to see the trees leafing out and the scenery starting to turn that bright leaf green. It turned out to be an international tour. We went through Toledo (Spain), Athens (Greece), and then to Jasper (Canada). The trip took longer than planned when our leader had to stop for the gas he forgot to get earlier! When we got bac...
