    2nd Annual Ontario Meet N Greet

    Saturday, August 16th, 2014
    Arthur Fairgrounds - 158 Domville Street, Arthur, Ontario
    Noon




    [​IMG]

    Our meet this year will take place at the Ford Truck Nationals in Arthur, Ontario. It runs both Saturday and Sunday. There will be trucks there from the early 1900's right to brand new, Rangers so low you can barely open the doors to Superduty's jacked up so high you need a ladder to get in them.

    Saturday is the Show N Shine with a registration fee of $20 per truck for the entire weekend or if you pre-register it is $15. Saturday there is also a small cruise through the paved back country roads, last year we stopped for ice cream along the way, when we get back they will be setting up the Corn Roast for dinner. There will be vendors for food and alcohol all day and night. Bring the kids if you want because they do have activities for them throughout the weekend.

    Sunday is also a Show N Shine but Sunday is when they judge and give out prizes for each class. They also do a bunch of door prizes by picking registration numbers out of a bucket, you could win something small like a car care kit all the way up to a old school pickup box. They also offer a longest distance travelled award (Lt Crazy this is something you will probably win lol).

    Accommodations: If you want they do offer rough camping at the show for $15.00 for the weekend or Camping with Hydro and Water for $25.00 per night. You can bring your trailers there is spots for them.

    If camping doesn't float your boat there is Hotel options. Arthur is a small town with no hotels that I can find but 10-20 minutes away there is Fergus which is a bigger town and offers a few hotels. Most will probably drive thru Fergus to get to Arthur.

    20-30 min south of Fergus is Guelph and they offer a slew of hotels.
