Default Aquino 2017 - OMVA

Thanks to all those who were able to come out and show their support for this event by being there as a spectator or as a vehicle display participant. We had a great turnout of vehicles and our Annual General Meeting/Member BBQ was a great success!

One of the perks for OMVA members attending with their vehicle was the invitation to participate in the OMVA Grandstand Vehicle Drive Past. Because of the rain earlier in the week and Saturday morning, the dirt field/track where re-enactments and vehicle demonstrations took place had turned into a massive field of mud and some of our vehicles were not able to participate in the drive by on Saturday. Things had dried up a little by Sunday and more of our vehicles were able to participate on day two of the event. The link below will take you to a you-tube video that shows our drive pass on the Saturday. Those who were able to participate in this were:
  • Joe Bernardes from Courtice, 1952 Dodge M37 Truck
  • John Carmichael from Gloucester, 1942 Ford GPW Jeep
  • Don Dallison from Whitby, 1952 M38 CDN Jeep
  • Bill Vanclief from Scarborough, 1985 Bombardier Iltis
  • Greg Johnson from Omemee, 1954 M37 CDN Dodge Truck
  • Angus Bussineau from Bruce Mine (Sault Ste. Marie), 1985 Hagglunds BV206 Tracked/Amphibious Carrier

More pics to come!

Cheers, Terry

Was a fantastic weekend! The weather more of less co-operated
Was fun taking part in the Vietnam battle portion.

Thanks to all who attended and ESPECIALLY all the hard working people who organized the event and assisted all weekend long!
