There will be a British car show in Montreal in May, this should also be a fairly accessable show for BCF members who live in some areas of New England, full text is below and also listed in the calendar:

The "Beaconsfield" British Car show is a go! British car enthusiasts are invited once again to Centennial Park in Beaconsfield, Quebec for the 5th edition of the "British Car Week Celebration". The date is set for Sunday, May 25th. Participants should start arriving around 10 a.m. and the last car should be off the field by 4 p.m. This is a rain or shine event.

As usual, there is no cost for entrants or spectators. There will also be no parts vendors, kiosks or food services (with the possible exception of an ice cream truck!). Participants are encouraged to bring their own picnic basket and set out a blanket on the grass. This year, we are once again organizing a "tailgate" competition, with judging and prizes for the individual and club that puts on the most elaborate tailgate display*.

Getting there is easy: whether you are approaching Montreal from the east or the west using either Highway 40 (trans-canada) or highway 20, exit at St. Charles Blvd. south. Take St. Charles all the way to the end (Lakeshore Rd. also called Beaconsfield Blvd.) and turn right. The show field is 1 mile away on your left. You can't miss it!

* a "tailgate display" is an elaborate picnic buffet, where the difference between good and great depends on your skill at decorating and the quality of the food and drink. Those with experience tend to dress up in period costume, display British flags, play old music, offer ten different kinds of paté etc. Use your imagination!
