2019 - Upcoming OJC Activities

July 20 2019

It’s almost time for the All British Car Day (ABCD) at Britannia Beach Park on July 20th.

This car show attracts around 200 vehicles of all British marques from across Eastern Ontario, Quebec, plus over 1,000 visitors.

You can check out the details at: http://www.britishcarday.ca/

We have chosen the Mini as our featured marque this year. We welcome both classic and new Minis and hope to see many beautiful examples of both out at the show this year.

We have a few volunteers already to help set up, run, and tear down the show as always. But if there is anyone else who would like to Volunteer an hour please let me know right away, thank-you.

OJC always has a great representation at the ABCD, and I would like to encourage everyone to come down, even if you're not going to be bringing your Jaguar. It's a great day at Britannia Beach. davidpbatten@sympatico.ca

July 27 2019

Happy 70th Birthday Party XK-120 on Saturday, July 27 from 4 - 6 PM  (Rain Date – July 28)

From Fergus Groundwater:  Carol and I would like to invite all club members and their significant others to a celebration at our home on the 27th of July (28th rain day) from 4:00 to 6:00 PM

Hamburgers, hot dogs, salad, soft drinks, water, and a birthday cake will be supplied. If members want to bring something a bit stronger to drink that is fine by us, but their decision. We ask that everyone who wants to sit, to bring a chair, as we only have a dozen or so for outside use.

We are at 5808 Longhearth Way, in Manotick, near St Mark's Catholic High School.  There is room in our driveway for the birthday cars, and lots of parking along the street for all others.

Please respond to Fergus at: groundwater@yahoo.ca no later than July 20th.

Jaguars and Hawks - Unique Event. The British Royal Air Force Red Arrows aerobatic demonstration team will be based at Gatineau Airport, Rue Arthur-Fecteau, Gatineau, QC for a few days at the beginning of their 2019 North American tour. On Tuesday, August 13 they will give an aerial display in the afternoon. In addition to the Red Arrows, there will be flight demonstrations of other British aircraft, and a variety of static displays. The Vintage Wings of Canada hangar will also be open for visits. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase on site.

red arrowsIn order to make this a memorable day there will be a display of British cars and the OJC and MG clubs have both been invited to display their cars. We are still in the early stage of organizing this event and are working with the air show prime at Gatineau.

Current tentative plans are for us to meet in the morning at a location close to or at Gatineau Airport and drive together onto the airfield. Our cars will remain on display until the end of the show probably around 4 PM.

 In order to enable show organizers to plan space allocation we need to give them a preliminary count of how many cars we may bring as soon as possible.

Would you please e-mail John Wright johnwright@ripnet.com by May 9th if you are interested in bringing a vehicle?

Details of the event are still being finalized and other interesting opportunities for our members are under discussion. Price and ticket information will be included in the June Jottings and further details will be communicated to you as soon as they become available at which point we will need to firm up the numbers. Stay tuned.

Hazeldean Cruise Night British InvasionYou are invited to come and join us with your British car in the “British Invasion” zone any time after 5:00 pm on Tuesday, September 10th 2019, at Hazeldean Shopping Center on Eagleson Road, just south of Robertson Road/ Hazeldean Road and about 2 km south of the 417 exit on to Eagleson/March Road.

We will leave the show at about 7:10 pm and go for a 20 -25 min drive to the Old Mill at Ashton and then dine. Over the last few years we have had a great turn out – up to 55 cars, about half of which join us for the meal.  Across the British car community we hope to beat that this year with your help.

If you have any queries or plan to attend please contact Alan at gravesal76@rogers.com since we need to confirm numbers for the meal
