OJOA Team,

We have a fantastic opportunity again this year for approximately 10 member Jaguars to participate in a display area at the renowned, ‘Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance’! The Cobble Beach event is considered by many as the Canadian equivalent of the famous Pebble Beach Concours. A group of OJOA members were involved in a similar way last year (perhaps you may recognized some of the Jags in the photo above) and enjoyed the experience so much we asked for a repeat performance.

The following are some important points about the event:
-- September 16, 2017 - Pre-Concours events - we can participate in 'Cars & Coffee' or Driving Tour these events occur simultaneously
-- September 17, 2017 – Concours d’Elegance and Jaguar display
-- Jaguar display cost – Requires a $40 donation to the Sunnybrook Foundation
-- Concours viewing admission – General Adult Admission $30, Youth Admission (5-16 years) $25, Family Admission (two Adults + two under 16) $85
-- Car & Coffee car display event - $10.00 per car + $5/extra passenger. Note: Cars must be 25 years and older to participate in the Cars & Coffee display (only)
-- Participants Driving Tour – No charge and no restrictions other than your registration as a Jaguar display vehicle
-- Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance website: www.cobblebeachconcours.com … take a look!

Note: I would like to clarify the Jaguar display area is not the same as participating in the Concours. The Jaguar display is a special designated area of the parking lot just outside the entrance to the formal Concours grass area. Our experience last year was to see many Concours visitors take the opportunity to walk through our designated display area with keen interest and conversation. One of the nice side benefits to our location is that it saves the off-site parking arrangement required for all regular general admission attendees.

Last year, many of the Jaguars participated in the Saturday Participants Driving Tour. Despite the rain it was well organized and took us through many scenic areas in a convoy of amazing automobiles.

If you are interested in participating, please contact me at your first opportunity as our involvement is limited. I will provide you a further email with required registration details, etc. Also, time is of the essence if you are planning for a stay-over at a hotel, motel or BnB. Please let me know of your interest at your first opportunity. If there is more interest than availability, we will unfortunately have to limit and allocate participation based on the order of responses received.

Thank you,

Ron Waine

P.S. Special thanks to Steve Sherriff for gaining the approval from the Cobble Beach organizing team. His exceptional 1937 Rolls Royce will be included in the main Concours event – good luck Steve!
