This year's June Tour was an island-hopping affair.  The tour was held at Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island and included excursions to the nearby Forestry Centre and via ferry to Saltspring Island.  As always, many notable cars (and their owners) were in attendance.  Of particular interest were the pair of Kissels and a trio of Canadian built Russells - a 1910, a 1915, and a 1911 Russell-Knight.

A terrifying moment was the roll-over crash of a 1913 Overland.  Fortunately, the injuries sustained were not as bad as they might have been, but the photo here serves to remind us all of the need to keep thinking 'safety first.'

Another interesting sight - Dan Findlay - 14 years old - driving Ron Tremblay's Model T around the parking lot.  A sign of things to come?
