Durant Gathering 2005

Hi everyone. Thanks Rick for the great pictures of our cars at the Gathering. The group have planned a great weekend for everyone this year. Unfortunately I will be unable to attend as I will be in Newfoundland with the Motor home at that time.
However, Joan tells me that the registrations are starting to come in. Remember, it is only $15.00 per registration. That includes your spouse, significant other, children etc.
Plan on being there.

Re: Durant Gathering 2005


I've just added pictures from the 2004 Canadian meet to the Past Events page, see Photographs section.


Re: Durant Gathering 2005

Those are great pictures and thank you for posting them. One correction, the 2004 was held at Denfield, Ontario, at the home of Rick and Nancy Guy (owners of the original 1917 Gray Dort Touring) How about that 1922 Gray Dort of Ross & Marion Campbell. Those backup lights are ORIGINAL from the factory!!!
The 2005 tour will be back in Carlisle, Ontario at the home of Reg & Marilyn Bent (Owners of the 1930 Rugby Touring in the picture.)
Send your registrations in NOW!

Re: Durant Gathering 2005

Thanks Rick for posting the 2004 Canadian Tour Photos.

Re: Durant Gathering 2005

Gord; How come our Canadian Meet is so close to Hamilton Ontario , but we never go to the huge Botanical gardens there?

Re: Durant Gathering 2005

I guess it has never been suggested as a potential tour spot. Would make a great spot and we could also have a picnic lunch on the grounds.
Bring it up on the 28th.

Re: Durant Gathering 2005

Just getting ready to mail out the flyers to all the folk I know up here. I mail them to everyone I know that has a Durant Product, would like to own one, or just plain good folk. (All Durant Product lovers are)
If you know of someone in the neighbourhood who does not belong to the club, but would like to see some Durants, drop me a line with their address and some particulars. I will check to see if they are on our list.
I know of several Durant products that are for sale.

Members & Friends
Since Carlisle is only 40 miles from Niagara Falls, you can gamble all your money away on Saturday evening at that fancy casino and still be back in time to tell us tales about your gaming skills.

Re: Durant Gathering 2005

Mary & I checked out the motels closest to the Carlisle meet. The only acceptable one we found was the Knight's Inn.
#15 Hwy 5 W, address is in Flamborough but it's in Waterdown.
Phone #905-689-6615
The rate is $91 Can or US$ about73. Don't forget to ask for the Connor Grp Rate

Re: Durant Gathering 2005

Hi Gord,

I know you will have a wonderful meet as always. Sorry I can't attend. Wish you much success. Have fun..


Re: Durant Gathering 2005

To Gord and all our Canadian friends.
Just wanted to let all that are attending the Canada meet this year, know that Dorothy and I are sorry that we are not going to be able to make the meet this year. We have two commitments over the Week of the 4th. We will miss being there. Someone will have to take photo's this year for the web site.
