2010 Can Am Tour

On Apr.18 we had our annual CANAM tour to the USA as it was their turn and this year the weather was no exception-warm. We had 12 vintage and 4 modern vehicles on tour with 38 members and guests, we were met at the Waneta border crossing by approx 20 vehicles and 40+ people from the Colville club

On the tour we stopped at China Bend rest stop on the Columbia river for mandatory chocolate cookies, cakes, muffins, refreshments and visiting.  It sure was nice to see all that shiny chrome going down the highway. We travelled to Avista Utilities generator plant outside of Kettle Falls where we were treated to a tour of their facility were they produce electricity from wood waste.  This plant is exceptionally setup and managed with virtually no pollution emitted, a very educational tour

Then it was time to eat and one of the local church groups put on a fabulous lunch.  There was also a surprise birthday cake presented to a couple of our members, one old and the other not so much!! Nice Surprise. Then it was off to the Kettle Falls heritage museum which was interesting and informative. After thanking our hosts for their efforts we then went our separate ways towards home, It was a fun day seeing friends we have not seen for awhile. Next year it's our turn.
