This just in from fellow Woody Boaters Jamie Smith & Harold Wilson, and the nice folks at the Toronto Chapter ACBS in Southern Ontario.
To our Miss Canada IV Restoration and “Harold & Lorna” Friends,
For those of you who live close to the Muskoka Region of Southern Ontario, this is your invitation to attend the Toronto Chapter ACBS Spring Tour event and visit 11 outstanding Restoration Shops on Saturday, April 21st.
The shop tour is scheduled from 8:00am-5:00pm with lunch at the JW Marriott, The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa starting at noon. This annual event marks the beginning of the boating season in the Muskokas and surronding area.
It is your opportunity to see the work done during the winter months at the restoration shops and to join friends for lunch at the JW Marriott. The Miss Canada IV Restoration Team looks forward to seeing you at Tom Adams shop between 10:00am-3:00pm. Directions to Toms Adams shop are on the attached Shop Directions list. Note — the Dockers Restaurant is closed — look for Tamarack North Ltd or Muskoka Teak.
The photos we sent to Woody Boater for this announcement are recent photos which were taken of Miss Canada IV on April 4th. You will see a change when you visit nine days from now! Please note that all shops are not open from 8:00am through 5:00pm. Also, the registration form says that the deadline for lunch tickets is to-day. Gord Hawke has extended the registration deadline until noon Monday April 16th. Call or email him asap! We look forward to seeing you on the 21st.
