Brits On the Lake 2014
Pictures by Daniel, Jim, and Rex Colburne
And Tony Fox

It turned out to be a great time for Brits On the Lake Classic Motoring Revival. Thanks to Bob DeShane and his crew for a great weekend.

Saturday featured the Durham Eastenders British Car Club Annual Valve Cover Car Race at Brits On the Lake. This is a fundraiser for the Port Perry Hospital Foundation, raising $6000 to date.

Saturday was also the Wing Commander's Rally Tour. Someday someone will send me pictures of this.

Along with the car show on Sunday there were two events , at 11.00 am we were treated to the Provincial Town Crier competition, 19 entries from around the province. Following that was the pipe band parade. The local Anglican church, Church Of the Ascension, put on afternoon teas with scones, cream and jam, a British treat.

Bob DeShane had 319 entries but we know many didn't enter, so estimate around 350 vehicles there.
