We just got off the phone with the Yukon Lodge Hotel accommodations in Trenton. They have advised that we determine our numbers for CVFR Meaford unit who will be attending subject event in Trenton on 06 June 2015. CVFR Meaford unit members attending this event will arrive on Fri, 05 June 2015 and check out on Sat, 06 Jun 2015.
We will be forming up our motorcycles at 07:30 Hrs in Trenton on 06 June 2015, for the Highway Of Heroes Ride from Trenton to Toronto. Although the regulations are set out on attachment regarding who is entitled to stay at the Yukon Lodge, each active/retired military member with proof of service can book a room with one supporter member. The active/retired military member will take responsibly for that room for the supporter member.
The cost is $55.00 dollars per room, with availability of 2 double beds or a single queen size room. I have stayed at this lodge on base, well worth the price and right on location where we will be forming up for the event. Have a look at the Yukon Lodge link and the Highway Of Heroes links below with photos. You cannot get better than this for lodging value.
The first step is to determine who will be attending this event from CVFR Meaford unit. The next step is to book a room with 2 beds or queen single for our married couple members, by at least one active/retired member with proof of service, or as per the link attachment on who qualifies. The Yukon Lodge phone number for reservations is on the link. In addition, a active/retired member can book 2 rooms maximum, per retired/active veteran. We need a list of members that will be 100% attending this event from CVFR Meaford unit, once rooms are booked their is no refund.
Recommend that we book this no later than 15 Mar 2015 if not earlier as rooms are available at the present time, but will certainly go fast. All your questions regarding accommodations, Highway of Heroes Ride Details, start point, registration, cost etc, are with the attached links. If we have any non riders attending from CVFR Meaford unit, that would be outstanding as they can be our safety/chase vehicle while transporting our luggage. We will be departing Owen Sound at first light on Fri, 05 June 2015 for Trenton. Which will take approx 6 hours with various stops for fuel and breaks. The route to Trenton will be all back roads, without having to travel on the 400 or 401 highway.
More details will follow with respect to departure timing/location from Owen Sound, Communications, First Aid, GPS accessibility etc. We will also determine a meeting point in Trenton on Fri, 05 June 2015 for any CVFR members outside of Owen Sound. Who will be traveling from various other locations. A meet and greet of our members will be an awesome opportunity. Hopefully we will have a large contingent of CVFR members from across Ontario and Quebec. Thanks all.
WE ARE MAKING A CHANGE TO THE ASSEMBLY LOCATION
Due to Base Command needing to meet operational needs, the HHR assembly has been moved from the Parade Square at CFB Trenton to just around the corner at the National Air Force Museum of Canada on RCAF Rd.
We are excited about the move as this will give everybody a chance to visit the museum and see some of Canada's great military aircraft.
