Default OMVA "Bivouac" MV Event Aug 20/21, near Kingston,ON

Most of you are aware that this event will take place at Odessa near Kingston, Ontario once again - and this year will be the best ever!
To help us plan the layout we would like to get a better idea of how many vehicles we can expect so, those of you who plan to come, could you let me know, either here or by private message what vehicles you hope to bring? And if you plan to camp.

One other plea that I make every year - most of the public who visit the event have absolutely no idea about or vehicles - they don't know a jeep from a G-wagen. So, given that education especially of the younger folks is part of our mission, could you all either make up an info board or at least have a page tucked under the wiper saying what the vehicle is, its date, and its purpose?

Cheers - and look forward to seeing you in August.

I will be attending but with civilian transportation. The M151A2 is not roadworthy yet. Stuart Fedak from Ottawa has asked me to bring some things of his to Odessa. I expect it is a form of MLU Express favour.

If you are expecting a delivery from or to Stuart send me a message so I can confirm the loading diagram.

The Canadian War Museum had the audacity to schedule their first post lockdown tank demonstration weekend this same slot on the calendar. And for maximum effect, they're going to try to run 3 shows a day, Thursday to Sunday. I'll go there first for one dose of diesel fumes then point the VW towards Odessa Saturday for another self-induced episode of inhalation therapy.

Default Saturday's the best day at Odessa,ON

Good idea, Terry, to make Saturday the day for Bivouac - the most convivial day plus a great (free) BBQ.
