We are ‘go’ for Picton!

Please be sure to mark the last weekend of May on your car calendar and plan to join us for the return of Regional I & II AutoSlalom events at Picton airfield.

Joining us again this year will be Steven Day and his crew.  As well, we will be using all of the event tricks used at last year’s National Championships.

But who knows?!  There maybe more in store this year and wouldn’t like to be joined by our US counterparts.  There may even be some extra fun for the family with RC autoslalom and perhaps even some car karaoke.  And remember, for best results it’s in fast and come out slow!

See you in 2019!

January Meeting

Happy New Year, everyone

We hope you’ll plan to join us at our next meeting of the St Lawrence Automobile Club planned for Tuesday, January 22nd at the home of Danby Crowder, 657 Simmons Road, Odessa (see Map below).  Things will get underway at 7pm.
Agenda
  • Tour what will certainly someday be featured on an edition of Big Bad Barn Finds.
  • Hear Roger explain the Latin origins of the double-entry accounting system!  Or a Treasurer’s Report anyways…
  • Listen as Rob takes you step by step through the grueling process of updating the club’s registration with the Provincial Government.
  • Get an update on Subaru’s Winter Driving Experience.
  • Endlessly debate the pros and cons associated with affiliating the club with the rally-sport governing bodies.
  • Laugh out loud as Roger provides the best in automobile short films that’s bound to get your mouth salivating for a return to the racing season.
  • Get elected!  Yes, you, too, can be el Presidento, the Secretary and Guardian of the sacred scrolls of membership, a treasurer or Vice-President in charge of what ever you want!
  • Get reminded of all the wonderful ways in which you can help add to the club and more.
And there may even be snacks!  So why not plan to renew old acquaintances!  Renew your membership!
