Hi John,

I phoned this hotel ——> https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/yxuri-residence-inn-london-downtown/?scid=bb1a189a-fec3-4d19-a255-54ba596febe2

It is within walking distance of the London Club. Now this hotel is downtown as is the London Club. The hotel has safe underground parking at an additional charge of $15- all prices are in Canadian dollars.

PM me and let me know if you prefer to stay at a B$B and if you are driving your Pagoda. Hugh has plans to secure parking spaces in front of the London Club (for a photo op), also I think he will make arrangements to have the cars watched while we are having dinner.

2 images attached one of the London Club and another to the hotel.

Those who plan to arrive early enough to go for a nice drive in the countryside on Friday, ending at the London Club well in time for dinner, should post here and I will coordinate something fun.

And for those who plan to stay an extra day on Monday, I will organize something as well.

Hi pj,

Since Christian Beaudoin (my nephew) and I (Tom Kizer) plan to arrive at about the time of the Car Show on Thursday afternoon, we will be there all day Friday and would love to participate in a nice drive in the countryside, ending at the London Club.  I am hereby posting here.

This is going to be a wonderful trip.

I can help plan something for Monday with Peter. How about the Oil Museum of Canada and the Petrolia Oil Discovery? All within a half hour drive from my place.

On a different note: the visit to Campbell Restorations is out so I'll have to come up with something else for late Sunday afternoon. Stay tuned for that.

Hi Jack; People just pay the dinner fee to me by PayPal in Canadian funds and then I confirm with the Club the total number a few days before the dinner.

The dress is "smart casual". Have to stay cool! Cheers, Hugh

Hugh,
Still waiting for instructions to send a deposit for two people for dinner at the London Club.  Is it getting late?

SORRY about that oversight, I should have added my email address.  It is...  rawling@rogers.com   PLEASE NOTE; When paying with PayPal please pay from your bank account or Paypal cash in your acct & then no fees.  If you pay using credit or debit card they charge me fees. Thx

I was at the London Club this  Wed. and I heard that someone called there to pay. They don't take the money for this event. I do and then they bill me as the member. Again, sorry about the confusion and to compensate I suggest we move our deadline to book for the dinner to August 16th, 1 week before the event. Looking forward to the seeing you there... Hugh

One thing I regret NOT doing on my visit last year was going to the aviation museum in London. I hear it's excellent!

I think maybe you mean the one in Hamilton, Ontario. I have to admit I've never been to it either. Bucket list for sure.

I'm informed I have to attend a wedding in Toronto on the Saturday. I'm thinking of leaving first thing Sunday morning to catch the tail end of the event.

You can try to meet us at RM which is right on the 401 at the 40 highway exit.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is south of Hamilton, more than an hour's drive east of London. See
www.warplane.com

Meanwhile, London has the Jet Aircraft Museum, located at YXU, our international airport. See
https://webmaster8001.wixsite.com/jetaircraftmuseum

I can help guide anyone who wants to visit those museums, but it's not part of our regular plans for the weekend.

There is also a submarine on exhibit at Port Burwell. See
http://www.hmcsojibwa.ca/
This would be a worthy destination for the Friday drive.

This is a Final Update for Thursday August 22, 2019 for the Steve Plunkett Car Show.

We like to drive together to the Steve Plunkett Golf Course Estate. To this end I like to have an update as to how many of you are going to attend. I need to know this so that we can wait for you before we leave the assembly area at the Coffee Shop Tim Horton.     

The Assembly address is: 925-975 Southdale Road London, Ontario                                                                                                                                                                   Time of Assembly:  17;00 to 17:15 (5 pm to 5:15 pm).                                                                                     
Steve Plunkett’s Address: 9282 Elviage Drive. London, Ontario
                                                   

 See  map map attached (in case you miss us leaving). As we leave Tim Horton we will turn left (in the westerly direction on to Southdale Road. Don’t worry if you cannot follow the car in front of you due to traffic. The lead car will stop along the road side once we pass the 2nd traffic light until we are all together again. The objective here is to arrive all together at the Plunkett Estate, let us see if we can manage to accomplish this.

As I mentioned earlier I spoke to Steve Plunkett on June 2 when he had his last complete car show (country cruse this year again there where close to 3,000 cars during the 2 day event). Steve still makes his golf course available for car shows during the summer months on Thursdays. When I talked to Steve in June I mentioned to him that we plan to attend the August 22 car show with 8 to 10 Pagodas. I asked him what the chances are to see his Private collection at that time. He said to call him the week before. So I called him today his first reaction was that he no longer gives private tours. After talking to him some more about where the cars are all from (as far as Australia, Ohio, Michigan, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario, etc), he said to give him a call on Wednesday next week. I will do that, it looks like the possibility to see his private collection is not completely dead. I shall keep my fingers crossed.

So please let me know by posting below or let me have a PM if you are attending the Thursday August 22, 2019 car show. Snacks and cold drinks are available at very reasonable prices on site as well as music from the 60s :)

Thanks for reading,

Dieter

NOTE; For those indeviduals attending the Friday Night Dinner refer also to the post above this post from Hugh B. For Details
