Come one and all to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is being held at the Quality Inn in Peterborough on 04 Oct 2015. It will be the same hotel that we are using as our host Hotel for 2015 Maple Leaf Tour. Current members and other Studebaker owners along with persons interested in Studebakers are all welcome to attend. The AGM starts at 12 PM (NOON) sharp but the doors will be open at 11 AM and we have arranged to have complimentary coffee and donuts/muffins.

If you plan on nominating anyone for the Roy Graham award then I need your nomination NLT the 9th of September to allow time for the committee to review all nominations and arrange for the plaque/award. We hope to make the presentation during the AGM. Take note that this is not an election year so not to worry about voting but just come and have a pleasant time with your fellow Ontario Chapter members and learn first hand what we have planned for 2016.  Also a good time to see if you wish to hold an event in your area as we do have open months on next year’s calendar.  For more info on this event contact Will Norton at 613-777-5314 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Hope to see you there in your Studebaker!

Have you registered for the 2015 Maple Leaf Tour in Peterborough? We have provided a convenient form below so you can pre-select meals as our food providers are small family restaurants and can't handle order-off-the-menu for a group our size. They really need a pretty good idea of numbers. Plan to arrive by early Friday after-noon and I will take a group to the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters Museum about 2 p.m. This is a small but very well done diorama of the Canadian ecological zones along with artifact display rooms. It is a few minutes drive from the hotel and costs $5 each. We will leave Friday dinner as your option. There are many restaurants within walking distance and all the menus will be at our registration table. The Saturday driving tour has been reversed to better suit a presentation. We will leave the hotel by 9 a.m. to arrive at Petroglyph Parks by 10.

Admission to Petroglyphs Park: Per Vehicle: $14.50, Seniors $11.50, Disabled $7.25. (Unfortunately, there is no staging area to pack everyone into three cars.) 

They have an excellent new Visitor Centre which includes a 20-minute introduction on film and many interesting displays. The glyphs themselves are now under a huge glass structure as protection from weathering. At 11 a.m. a park ranger will interpret the meaning of the figures but the message itself is not specific — you fill in the details according to your own beliefs. Our scheduled ranger has First Nations blood and is very informative. This is an active religious site and is used regularly by the Elders and Members of the Curve Lake First Nation, who are worthy to walk among the words of the Ancestors. We are restricted to the surrounding walk-ways. The day we visited, the stone altar and offerings remained from a previous ceremony. Lunch will be at Honey's Diner in Greater Metropolitan Woodview, a very good family eatery which is licensed. Please select from the special menu items listed on the registration form below. We will visit East of Eden, a rambling antique shop housed in various buildings including a former church. Michael has a collection of old trucks on the grounds but is not restoring them. East of Eden and Honey's Diner pretty much make up Woodview. 

We’ll return along the east bank of the Otonabee River an d Little Lake. For Saturday dinner we have selected The Pizza Factory which is actually Greek, a long-time Peterborough favourite a few doors from the hotel. Fixed price of $21.95 plus/plus includes soup or salad, garlic bread, choice of 2 or 3 desserts and table beverage. Again, this is a family run eatery so we have a limited menu: chicken Parmesan (2 breasts) with roast or f.f. potato, Greek fish (sole stuffed with crab) on rice with potato, or penne with broccoli and smoked ham in Alfredo sauce topped with Mozzarella and cheddar. Please make your choice on the registration form. They are seriously good!
