Wildlife sightings are very probable.
These roads have been designed for a Nissan, especially for the “Z”.

Dinner location will be the Ash Grove Inn around 7:30 to 8:00pm. We’ll sleep over for one night at the Ash Grove Inn – this lodging is the premier spot in Barry’s Bay off of the lake.
On Sunday, our group has been invited to perform parade laps at Calabogie Motorsports Park.
These roads are very windy with lots of elevation changes all paved. We’ll do an afternoon circle tour of the region.

“Crusing with the Church” features our favourite roads around Bala and Gravenhurst.
The cruising with the church tour has been bumped up one month to take advantage of this beautiful weather.
We will meet at Washago which is about 10 minutes north of Orillia at 9:00 Saturday morning September 22nd.
If you convoy from the King City On Route, it is one hour North from there.
The tour is being organised by a couple of churches up there and will be a scavenger (photo hunt). Prizes will be given out based on photos taken, so bring a camera or phone!
The tour will take different routes from what we usually have driven but will include Southwood Road. At the end of the tour we meet back at a church where a home cooked supper is provided.
The cost for the day is $20 per car maximum two people per car. Additional people can be accommodated for another $10 per person.
Please contact Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text 416-455-7445 to confirm attendance by Thursday evening in order to let the church ladies know how much food to prepare
