Canada 150—Remembering the Patriot War (Saturday August 5, 2017)

17 members met at HWY 416 & Bankfield for a road tour and trip through time, led by Les. The trip to Prescott had us drive country roads through Oxford Mills and Bishop’s Mills to the first stop of the day at Fort Wellington in Prescott. We received a history lesson on the fort from the war of 1812 to the 1837-38 rebellions.

After touring the fort, we made our way to the Red George Pub for lunch.

Following lunch, we travelled east a short distance along the St. Lawrence River to the Battle of the Windmill National Historic Site to tour the windmill and another history lesson on the battle that took place on the site in 1838.

After the tour of the Windmill, we travelled across the road to the Windmill Brewery/King’s Lock Distillery. We had a chance to tour the distillery and sample many of the fine spirits.

The day was a busy one, with a great road tour, lots of history lessons, good lunch and tasteful samples from the distillery. Thanks Les for a great day.   More Pictures

Paul & Michelle hosted a road tour and pulled pork dinner on Saturday, July 22,2017

Paul lead a road tour of 16 member corvettes that started in Winchester, making our way along the back roads to St. Alberts. Last year's road tour was a big success so another visit to the St. Albert's Cheese Co-operative was in order.

Member’s rushed in (Ron & Kim) to be the first in line for ice cream, but eventually we all managed to get some, toured the facilities and purchased cheese in their store.

Paul than led the tour back to his place, for the pulled pork dinner. A few more members joined the dinner. Lot’s of great food, drink and socializing. The weather was hot and sunny. We even had visitors from above trying to crash our party.

John brought in samples of our new clothing line from our new supplier for members to look at.

Thanks Paul and Michelle for a great day. It was a great turn out and a wonderful event.   More Pictures

Kars Rideau Valley Airpark Fly-In & BBQ - Saturday, July 15, 2017

The Club was invited by the Kars Flying Club to the Annual Rideau Valley Fly-In & BBQ held at the Kars Rideau Valley Airpark on Saturday, July 15, 2017.

Keith led a group of members on a tour to airpark. The rain had stopped and it became a rather pleasant day with a great BBQ put on by the flying club.

With all the rain in recent weeks the air-field was too wet for many planes to fly-in. An ultra-light and a small plane from Toronto did make the trip. The flying club was very appreciative of the CCC members that came. Many people from the area stopped in with there children to enjoy the BBQ. More Pictures

Saturday, June 3, 2017 Tour Through Time

On Saturday, June 3, the Capital Corvette Club and Valley Vettes pooled their resources for Canada's 150th birthday road tour through time. 

Richard and Karen Stead of the CCC and Kirk and Lynda Dobbs of Valley Vettes hosted the road tour with 23 CCC member vettes departing from Kanata and Almonte, stopping in Calabogie for a pit stop and continuing to meet the Valley Vette members in Balaclava.

The tour took us up the valley through farmland settled in the 1800s to the ghost town of Balaclava.  The town was named in 1859 to mark the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War.  Today, shuttered buildings and a century old dam tell the story of this pioneer hamlet. 12 Valley Vettes join us in Balaclava for a photo shoot, walking around the old buildings and then continuing on the second leg of the tour through Whitewater country to Wilderness Tours on the shores of the Ottawa River near Foresters Falls. 

35 vettes made the tour from Balaclava to Wilderness Tours. It was quite a site to see all the vettes travelling down the road. At Wilderness Tours we enjoyed a buffet lunch and some spectacular scenery. Following the lunch, another photo shoot was held in front of the facility, and then many CCC vettes returned home following the spectacular views along the Ottawa River.

Many thanks to another great tour organized by Richard & Karen Stead, especially Karen for her homemade cookies to start the trip and to the Valley Vettes club for a great tour. More Pictures
