*CANCELLED* DRIVING TOUR @ Muskoka
May 15 all-day

*CANCELLED DUE TO COVID REGULATIONS*

Hosted by Larry Funnell

PCA UCR’s first driving tour of the 2021 traditional driving season is our annual Spring Into Action in Muskoka. After meeting at 9:30 a.m. in Orillia, about an hour from Toronto, this tour heads north with clear views of the lakes and streams through the naked forests, while we enjoy the fresh spring air and lack of summer traffic. Quickly we find ourselves off the beaten path, winding through the woods and marveling at the spectacular scenery. Our lunch location will be dependent on COVID-19 restrictions, but this will not detract from the great routes planned. After lunch we work our way to Gravenhurst to conclude the great drive with a mid-afternoon get-together at a craft brewery. For added enjoyment and a nice group drive, for those driving up from the GTA we have an early-morning meet-up just north of the city off Highway 400.

Cost $45, 15 Porsches

DRIVING TOUR @ Southern Georgian Bay
Jun 12 all-day

Hosted by Michael Pohlmann and Randy Spenceley

Explore the beautiful countryside along the southern shores of Georgian Bay. As usual, the group meets at 8:30 a.m. at a Tim Hortons just off Highway 400 in Thornton, before departing in two run groups, winding our way through the back roads of Clearview Township (motto: beautiful landscapes, friendly people). The first stop is at Edenvale Aerodrome airport where we visit the Edenvale Classic Aircraft Foundation to have a look at its classic planes. We then continue along the shores of Southern Georgian Bay to Penetanguishene, where we, depending on COVID-19 restrictions, either have lunch at Discovery Harbour, or a picnic overlooking scenic Penetanguishene Bay. After lunch, we continue on to nearby Midland and visit, back by popular demand, the Wye Marsh Conservation Centre where we are treated to a guided tour of the facility and a very special presentation. The drive wraps up at a nice restaurant for a drink and a bite to eat, and some chat about the day’s adventure.

Cost TBA, 20 Porsches

Registration opens May 16 at 9 p.m. at https://clubregistration.net/events/signUp.cfm/event/11453
