BACKFIRE: Member Feedback: Some participants’ thoughts on the Salmon Run

By Randy Gananathan, Provinz Editor (from November 2016 Provinz page 21)

Hi! We just arrived home from our marvelous trip! We can’t thank you and your “team” enough for all the work in organizing the eventful day.

The surprise trip to the track was amazing. Brought back lots of great memories for Ray—but he certainly never thought he would be driving the track in his Porsche. That’s for sure.

We stayed overnight in Belleville and followed Old Hwy 2 and stopped in downtown Port Hope to see the salmon. There were hundreds in the pools and the fishermen were shoulder to shoulder. We were amazed watching the salmon attempt the rapids and the rocks. Truly a wonderful sight! We noted as well that there was more colour on the trees today.

Randy, the day was spectacular and unforgettable for us on so many levels.

Thank you for the bottles of wine. It was very thoughtful—we love the label!

We look forward to another adventure with you in the future, and wish you all the very best.

Ray and Jo


Thanks again to you and Michelle for a great day Randy! The colours we did see were wonderful. The winery is a long drive, but it is a beautiful property and the staff was over the top! They made us feel very welcome and very special. The track was a great experience. We can’t wait to sign up for a beginners class.

Rick and Lizann


Thanks Randy. You did a great job !

Hi Randy. Thank you again for a great day. It was such s thrill to go to the racetrack and a greater thrill to go on it. We were sorry to not have continued but when our gps said it was 81 km to the winery we thought it was too much to add onto our drive back. You did such a wonderful job arranging the day. We appreciate the effort and detail you put into it. See you st the next event.

Bev & Will

Hey Randy, we really had a great day. The route was quite scenic. We got to see the salmon unfortunately they weren’t running, but the part I enjoyed was the track. We really didn’t want to leave early, but I was having trouble with my battery and I didn’t want to burden anybody with getting a boost. So again, thanks to everyone and especially you, Randy.

Sincerely David and Carrie
