The Edmonton Classic Sports Car Club and the Friends of the Reynolds Alberta Museum are Supporting the Hagerty Youth Driving Experience being held at the Reynolds Museum, Highway 13 in Wetaskiwin.
We see the opportunity of challenging young drivers (16 t0 25) to experience driving a car with a Standard or Manual Transmission, developing potential interest in owning and driving classic cars in the future. The best way is by creating an experience that will excite them and that they will remember, taking a ﬁrst step in not just any car, but by utilizing the excitement of driving classic cars. https://www.hagerty.ca/corporate/Hobby-‐Support/Youth-‐Programs/Hagerty-‐Driving-‐Experience http://driving.ca/auto-‐news/news/hagerty-‐driving-‐experience-‐coming-‐to-‐alberta
So we are looking for a number of “volunteers” who are prepared to help by bringing their manual transmission cars and demonstrating and enabling these young participants to “Drive Stick.” The course layout is a closed one and simple to negotiate, Participating owners are sponsored by Hagerty with Free entrance to the Museum and catering is supplied at no charge. There are often other beneﬁts for owner instructors.
Please contact Mike Connolley if you are interested in supporting and participating with your car firstname.lastname@example.org or text to 780 387 1145 for more information
BACK FROM THE FUTURE CAR SHOW AND SHINE JULY 28TH 10AM – 4PM
To Supplement and Enhance the Hagerty Youth Driving Experience, the ECSCC and the Friends of the Reynolds Alberta Museum are Hosting a Show and Shine on the grass at the rear of the Museum and aim to bring together, not just the classic cars we drive, but a wider range of cars, from Yesteryear to the cars of Tomorrow. From Model T Fords to the Electric powered vehicles of today and everything in between. It’s not a “History Road” style event, but more a consideration of what was, is now and the future combined.
So Please Join Us, and display what you take pleasure in driving, be it a true antique, something you may have restored (or not); Something maybe that is taking us away from our former norms and developing the future of transport for the youngsters of today and tomorrow
Normal admission to the museum is waived for participants, providing you bring a suitable donation for the Wetaskiwin Food Bank. (The county of Wetaskiwin is currently one of the most deprived in the Province of Alberta and the Food Bank struggles to meet the challenge.)
