CANADIAN 4 Amphs.
Can't wait to see Gord on old autos tv. Your passion for the amphi will surely make that edition an interesting one for the viewers. My wife and I went to the canadian swim in on Saturday and met a lot of members(nice people) in the park. Got pictures of all the amphi's on hand and the mermaid that showed up everywhere! Our car will be ready next year so we hope to join in on the fun. Thanks to Gord for the offer to go for a splash and to Jeff and Barb for Saturday night diner. Unfortuneatly, we didn't have enough time to hang around due to previous commitments. It looks like the Canadian swim in will continue to grow again next year.
