Karen & David MacKenzie have generously offered to host a North Shore Run on Sunday, May 29th. I spoke with Karen and she is working out the route details, stops, lunch location, etc. and will provide additional details in a day or 2. I will forward as soon as I receive the details.
In the meantime just so everyone is aware I’ll put out what I know for now.
Karen & David’s run will start from the Tim Horton’s at the Truro Power Center, meet at 10:30AM for an 11AM departure.
For those traveling up from Metro we will be departing at 9:30 AM from the Tim Hortons located in Bedford Commons (our normal meeting spot), with a stop at the Tim Hortons on the Elmsdale exit, departing the Tim’s at the Elmsdale at 10AM to arrive at the Power center for 10:30AM.
50/50 tickets as well as Drivers Lottery tickets will be available.
Here is a picture of the “Hines’ Triplets” submitted by Ivan (74 454, 95 ZR-1, 06 Z06):
I also want to say a big thank you to Karen & David for offering to put together a run for the club on such short notice, we don’t get to go to the North Shore very often so I know it will be a great run.
Thanks to Orrie for leading our first run of 2016 on Sunday, May 1st. We had 21 Corvettes out and several others who met us in Chester and Mahone Bay. We left Bedford Commons a little after 11 am, did the Peggys Cove loop, with a stop in Peggys Cove. We then continued along Highway 3 with stops in Chester and Mahone Bay, ending with supper at Waves around 3:30 pm. Roger and Angela from the GMCC joined us as well. Here are some pics from the run:
