CAC Driving Season Kick-off!
by John McCulloch
Our May Day outing proved to be a very special Citroën Autoclub Canada event for a lot of reasons. Bill Dalglish, a member from London Ontario, hosted a wonderful lunch at his cottage facing the Briar’s Golf Club near Lake Simcoe’s Jackson’s Point Ontario. Not only did Bill have fresh burgers made up at the local butchers shop, he commissioned a special Citroën cake to be baked for this outing.
We had as special guests three Finns who read about our event on our web site. They were Citroëntusiasts, and since they were visiting Toronto at that time, asked if they could tag along. George provided the door-to-door hotel chauffeur service in his CX. As luck would have it one lady lived in the Toronto area as child in the 1950’s and she recalled that her family had a cottage on Lake Simcoe about a mile away from Bill’s place.
Dave and Penny Innes made the trip all the way from their home in Sudbury! Being so far away, it’s not too often we get to see them. Dave did not, however, have his Traction on this trip and so to not feel out of place, he fabricated a pair of chevrons from aluminum foil and set them of the hood of his Saturn, deeming it a “Satreon”. In spite of this elaborate ruse, he only fooled us for a few minutes.
Thanks must go to George Dyke for organizing the excursion and a special thanks to Bill Dalglish for the warm reception and generous hospitality he showed us.
