Hi Guys,

Just booked my room for Friday and Sat. night through Priceline.com and got it for $60.00 (plus taxes of course) it isn't anything special but all we need is a clean bed anyway. I have a Bunkie coming with me so the total was $145.30 with everything in so split in half $72.65 for 2 nights is pretty friggin cheap. It is at              
La Quinta Inn & Suites Oshawa

and it is maybe 10 mins from the museum site. Anyone has any questions let me know!

Greetings all!

I had a great time on Saturday looking over the grounds and touring the work shops of the museum. As I was telling MikeC on the weekend when you see a tank as a monument in front of a legion or armoury it is nice to see but seems like a cold lifeless piece of metal but when you get up close to an operational vehicle they seem to have a soul. Especially with people (there were about 50 volunteers) crawling over and working on them. They have some very interesting vehicles in the works with a Canadian connection. 

I do feel old now however. They had a very nice Grizzly on hand from the early 80's. In fact back when I wore a funny green suit and I was attached to 1 RCR we actually went down to the locomotive shop in London and drove them back to our barracks so the one I rode in (I was R/O) had 3 kms. on it and had that new car smell Very Happy  Now it is a museum piece! Sad Got to run around a bit in an old APC that was fun. Hadn't done that in 30 odd years!

Anyway I digress... Everyone I talked to down there are excited for their first tank day and are really excited to have us coming. You won't want to miss this event. You pretty much have to travel south of the border to see anything like this. We will be right in the center of the action so I hope everyone can come out and show these guys and the general public just what it is we do. They are expecting at least a couple of thousand people and from what a couple of guys told me there are some modelers in their group who can't wait to see us as they want to get involved in the hobby! 

For the full list of events here is the link:
http://www.ontrmuseum.ca/OMVAevent.htm

And here is the map layout with our location top just to the right on a soccer field which means the grass will be trimmed but no hills to hide behind! The rain option will be in one of the 402 buildings. But like I always say plan for rain and it won't happen!:


As I had said before I will be headed down on the Friday morning to stake out our area, set up tents and tables, do any grass trimming, etc...Anyone who would like to join me is more than welcome! I will be booking my room through priceline and will let you know what I get. There are lots of hotels close by or you can camp too! 

Again guys let me know if you are interested in attending just so we can get an idea of rough numbers for passes from the museum. FYI the museum is not charging us to attend but a "donation" from the club of $7.00 each would be nice. That is the gate fee they are charging the public which in this day and age is pretty damn reasonable for an event if you ask me. And for those of you without appropriate head gear you will be able to do some shopping at the militaria show and sale! Very Happy 

Any questions at all let me know!!!

TXS
Dean

if needed i can check on the field to see what its like or if it needs to be cut better. it should be fairly dry since its used as a football (soccer) field and has a run off area

I am bringing my mower just in case. you are right, drainage should be no issue and the long range looks stunningly nice!

Excellent deal Ed! Derek and I are going down Friday for noon so we will be there all day Friday and Sat. Bring your trees and any buildings you have. We will add them when you get there.
