PostSubject: Aquino weekend 2017 book now!   Tue Jan 24, 2017 11:29 am

Just wanted to get this out early lads...

Once again this year the club will be attending The Ontario Regiment Museum’s Aquino weekend May 26, 27, 28. For those of you who don’t know, this is the largest collection of operational military vehicles in Canada. This year besides the usual there will be 5 LEOPARDS 1A5's! J That's right, 5 LEOPARD'S running around the field! 
http://ontrmuseum.ca/events.htm



As usual I will be down for Friday mid morning to prep the field and staying through Saturday and Sunday. Last year we stayed at the UOIT dorms which are cheap and close by. Of course any help with set up Friday is always appreciated! I usually get there around 10-10:30. Takes 3 to 4 hours just to mow the lawn...
 
The price of admission for our club this year will be $15.00 for tankers and if you want to bring kids they will be $10.00. Whether you come for 2 days or just the one, this will be the prices. This MUST be paid in advance and I will mail you the wristbands so be prepared for that. The deadline to commit will be April 5 but I would appreciate if you can mark the poll as soon as you know.  If you do not pre-purchase you will be paying $20 at the gate like everyone else. REMEMBER these funds go to help this museum operate year round and do things like buy 5 LEOPARDS!!!

Any questions let me know!

Oh.. Do you need to be an adult to get the premium pass? I'd love for my kids to be able to ride in a Leo.

Response to my asking about any Family rates for Tank rides during Aquino and minimum ages.

Quote :
Thank you for your interest. As we only have a limit of 100 premium passes we are not offering a discounted rate for AQUINO. There is a discounted Family Pass for $40 for the event (Four persons, at least one Child). It is possible to get a group/family discount for Tank Rides during our TANK SATURDAY events.

There will be other vehicle rides available during the weekend at a much lower rate:
http://www.ontrmuseum.ca/tankride.htm

The minimum age for the Tank Ride is 16. All other vehicle rides do not have an age restriction.


Boo to 16 age... Will confirm with my wife, but likely a full weekend for me (we have friends in the Dirty 'Shwa'.)

Any questions let me know! 
Dean:
Since I have not been able to make it to this event please give me some info.
1) What is this dorm being referred to. (Rooms or true dorm)
2) Where is it.
3) What cost.
4) How to book.
5) Do any of the wives come
6) Are there washrooms close to our site. ( The older you get the closer the facilities must be)(Or are there only Johnny on the spots available )
7) Distance from car to site for moving all my light weight stuff.
Cool Admission rate $15 per day or $30 for the whole weekend. (I see there is a seniors rate at the gate $10/$20) or are we all in the club want to give them the same rate $15 or $30

rooms. Two bedrooms to a suite so when you bring your wife she doesn't have to sleep with you because you snore... ;-0

http://www.stayrcc.com/properties/view/index/Oshawa/

It always comes out as the best price on priceline.com. About $70 a night but if you have a bunkie 1/2 that.

Ed and Norma, Hach and his gang's ladies usually come, 

Yes, washrooms about 50 feet away from where we display.

Yes, you can come right up close to the battlefield, we all help you unload and then you can go park no problem. If you come early enoughyou can basically park and unload about 25 yards from parking lot. You just tell them at the gate who you are with...

$15 is for the whole weekend...

It could be the fact the rooms are used as dorms for the students and won't no the availability of them until the school lets out until April.  This rooms are used by college students after all, the room may require a little TLC.

I'll bet if you wait closer to May the rooms will become available.

Dean:
How shall I get the $30 to you for Dianne and I.
I also noticed that you did tell us $15 for the weekend 
( I am getting just like most of the younger people who i send E mails to about tank parts. They only read the first 1/3 of the E  mail and ignore the rest.) Does that mean I am getting better or just getting to be a legend in my own mind.

I am glad you are coming out Wayne. I think you will have a great time! Don't worry about dough for now. I will get the wrist bands and will be mailing them out so you have no issues at the gate and you can pay when you come in no problems...  Very Happy

And yes, you are a legend in your own mind...

I should be able to go for the Saturday.  I'll probably need 2 tickets but it could be 4. I'll find that out in the next week or so.

Hopefully the dorms are available since they worked out great last time .

That's just for the tanks. There are other APC rides that I think are free but I'm not sure of age restrictions or how you register. I will try and find out tomorrow.For the 2 of you $30 and the kids would be free...
