5 MGB GTs will be shipped from the UK

In May (2024), 5 MGB GTs will be shipped from the UK to Halifax to spend 90 days transversing Canada.
(4 MGB GTs from Australia and 1 MGB GT from the UK).
They are being shipped to Halifax and then driving to Vancouver over the next 80 days.
Driving from Montreal to Ottawa on the 30th of June
It would be good to meet up with as many Canadian MG enthusiasts/clubs as possible.
On the 1st of July they head to Huntsville for 1 night and then 2 nights at Parry Sound.
On the drive from Montreal to Ottawa, they are traveling via Mont Tremblant.
The drivers are all members of the MG Car Club of Victoria (AU) and some, the MG Car Club UK as well.
Should be in the Toronto area around late June.
Plans are being made to have the OMGC folks meet these travelers for some sort of gathering.
