June Tour 2010

Prowlin' Princeton
June 17 - 20, 2010

Prowlin' Princeton was a weekend of exploring the scenic backroads of the Princeton area.  Twenty-nine cars attended and the weather cooperated most of the time.

Friday's tour took the group along the Princeton-Summerland Road as far as the Silver Cloud Ranch.  There the group was treated to a most interesting presentation about the Peruvian stallions that are bred there.  Owner Lyslie Remme was very kind to host the first stop of the day and put on the show for us.  After lunch at the Legion Hall back in Princeton, the afternoon drive took us through Coalmont and into Tulameen, two historic mining towns.  The drive featured some pretty big hills - big enough to knock two cars out of commission.  Sorry, guys!

Saturday's toured was much more leisurely, following the Similkameen River to Keremeos.  Lunch was put on by the South Okanagan Chapter (thanks Marcel and Angie) before a visit to the amazing collection of Ken Helms.  In his orchard is twenty years of collecting just about anything and it is quite a sight to see.

Sunday morning featured a short drive, a quick garage tour, and a nice Father's Day pancake breakfast at the Seniors' Centre.  Then it was time to pack up and head home.  Four of the cars (1911 Rolls and three Model Ts) drove the distance from the coast and back.  Way to go, guys!

Thanks to the town of Princeton for welcoming us so warmly and to the tour committee for their work in organizing this weekend. It was a lot of fun for everyone.
