Trip to Cobble Beach for Ontario & near by US Members
« on: March 08, 2022, 17:46:29 »
If you live in Ontario or near by our borders then please have a look at the attached PDF file pages (I had to copy and paste them since the file was too large) and the Web Site Link to Cobble Beach.


Please don't think many that will participate here in the proposed road trip will actually take part or visit the Concourse d' Eleganxe. Here for examples is what I plan to do on this September weekend...

1) On Friday Sept. 16 I leave London Ontario early in the morning and arrive at the Cobble Beach location before 10:30 am in order to see the cars that are participating on Sunday Sept. 18 on the Concourse d' Elegance (best location to view those cars as they drive by I will provide Later). 

2) Sept. 16 continued, after viewing those cars I will make my way over to Blue Mountain and have Lunch at The Tholos Restaurant

3) Sept. 16 Continued, after lunch (only if enough cars are in town if not we would take the road trip on Sunday morning Sept. 18) we could start our 2 - 3 hour road trip that Bill V & Peter J are working on a route for us.

4) Saturday Sept. 17 Join all other Pagodas at the assembly area (to be advised) and drive as a group to the Car's and Coffee area at Cobbel Beach. We would then be parked all in one area.

5) Saturday evening Sept. 17 arrange a dinner evening Location and Timing to be advised.

6) Sunday Morning Sept. 18 we could take our 2 to 3 hour road trip plus make a stop at the Buff It Detailing shop were the owner kindly approved to give us all a demonstration

Ffter the six items listed above I plan to return to London ON for my 2 hour drive back home, perhaps with some other Pagodas that will drive in the same direction.


Only 6 months to go till the 8th Concourse d’ Elegance will take place at Cobble Beach Ontario CANADA. Should you be interested to join us then read on and let us know. This September weekend Event is only a 2 hour drive from Toronto to Cobble Beach ON and promises to be a great event.

Main Cobble Beach Web Page ———>

September 16, 17 and 18, 2022 Check out the Events area on the above Web Page, it is self explanatory.

Friday September 16th, 2022 The plan is to drive up to the Blue Mountain Ontario CANADA area and watching the road trip of cars that are on display on the 18th of September at Cobble Beach. This will be the only time we can view those cars (unless you are attending the Concourse d’ Elegance on the 18th UPDATE 2 of the Pagoda's plan to apply and display there Pagoda at the Concourse d' Elegance). I plan to drive up on the 16th to be able to be at this event at 10:30 hours when that road trip gets on the way. Locations to watch this will be published here later, once the organizers published the route. A location for lunch will also be recommended.

If sufficient Pagoda’s  are in the area on Friday we might take our own road trip after lunch. I plan to advise the location for lunch also, so that folks that arrive near lunch time can also join us on our road trip. Depending the detail provided by the organizers for the Concourse car’s road trip, we might take the same route for the Pagoda Road Trip, if not Bill V. and James J. live in the area and most likely will provide a great route for us to take perhaps with stops at a winery or some other points of interest. As mentioned before, if there are not enough Pagoda’s on Friday the 16th then we will take our own road trip on Saturday the 17th after the Cars and Coffee event that concludes at 15:00 hours.

Saturday September 17th 2022 Cars & Coffee event from 10:00 to 15:00 hours we would attend this event and if we did not manage our own road trip on Friday we would do it after the Cars and Coffee Event,

Sunday September 18th 2022 the Concourse d’ Elegance takes place, gates for the public open at 10:00 hours.

We will be scheduling some breakfast and dinner arrangements as well as some points we can assemble to meet and chat about our cars before and or after the planned events. for now I just like to find out the interest of attendance. Once I get feedback of interest I will issue a spreadsheet to each of you with Members that plan to attend. I think the attendance should not be more then 15 cars in order to manage our road trip. I will have a waiting list there are always cancelations do to issues we cannot control.

Once we have a completed spreadsheet list individuals can plan traveling together by arranging a meeting spot and then traveling together. As mentioned from Toronto ON to Blue Mountain the travel time is only 2 hours. If your car is in a state of repair don’t let that hold you back some members like myself will travel solo. We had a great time last year with our Niagara Falls trip (I understand there is a write up in our Pagoda World magazine Issue 30, I am still waiting for mine).

So please e-mail me if you are interested at (so I can e-mail you a copy of the spread sheet), with the information below. Like last year I shall prepare Name Tags for each attendance. ThankYou!

If Interested to participate please copy and paste the items below into an e-mail to me. Also I am open to any additions and or suggestion to make this a great weekend.

To this date March 21, we have 11 Pagodas and 22 people for the event. Most will take in the viewing of the cars that participate on September 18, 2022 and our own road trip with allthe Pagod's and Dug Dees fine 1969 280SE Coupe. We are still working on the route, however, we still have time. Speaking of time, those of you in Ontario and neighboring US states don't have that much time to take one of the 4 spots left of the 15 total.

No worries I will start a waiting list and if we have too many Pagodas then we split them in 2 groups. Let's show folks up north what a nice Pagoda looks like at the cars and coffee event on Sunday Sept. 18, 2022
