Chester Run

BATANS to Chester and the surrounds. Sunday, June 23.

We are fortunate to be invited to view Colin MacDonald’s auto collection in Chester. He has an eclectic collection, ranging from a 1950’s Ford Prefect to a Second World War motorcycle and much more.


  • Meet at Chester, 10:30am at the yellow garage, 37 Valley Road:
    • There is parking on the streets nearby, and you may use the gym parking area at 133 Queen Street, which is only a 2 minute walk away.
  • After viewing the autos, and chatting, and such, we’ll proceed to the Chester Golf Club for lunch at 12:00 noon:
    • This will be a buffet style lunch, featuring haddock chowder, also a turkey vegetable soup or similar and assorted sandwiches, coffee and tea for $24 per person. A cash bar will be available.
    • Arrangements will be made to have a separate parking area for the BATANS group, more on that later.
  • After lunch, at approximately 1:30pm, we will have a drive around the Aspotagan Peninsula.
    • A stop at the Bayswater Beach Park is a possibility and there is the Swiss Air 111 memorial at Bayswater as well.

The event ends when we get to Highway 3 near Hubbards and we each go our own ways.


  • Capacity for the event is 56 members and their guests.
  • Registration will open on the BATANS website on Friday June 7, at 11:00am.
  • Payment for lunch must be made in advance by Interac e-Transfer to event organizer Chris Hopgood
