IMG_5689The  Simcoe County Fun Run was hosted by Chris and Chantelle Leavens. A wonderful reception was held at their Orillia Volkswagen dealership. This was actually Chris’ second time hosting a Fun Run, and the buffet breakfast was simply outstanding. Chris and Chantelle topped it off with presenting each participant with a gift bag from his dealership.

Our first stop at the Big Chute Marine Railway was very interesting, and many of our participants had never seen the dry locks in action. Apparently the system was designed to keep the eels out of the lakes, and having the opportunity to see a large vessel transported out of one water body to another with such ease was amazing.

IMG_5685Our driving time was approximately 2.5 hours, as we enjoyed the beautiful vistas along the shores and waterways of Georgian Bay, with our final stop at the Wye Heritage Marina, where we had the best fish and chips ever! Henry’s South Fish Restaurant is a famous little spot right on a beautiful bay, and many of us were glad to discover it. We plan on making that trip again.

Chris, I am sure, will outdo himself again when he hosts the Fall Fun Run from his London Porsche dealership. He has certainly set the bar high. He and Chantelle are just the couple to make that happen.

A big thank you to Chris and Chantelle for all their efforts in making PCA-UCR bigger and better.
