Seven Cars and twelve members met on a beautiful Friday morning in late June for the Headin' for the Hills 2006 Tour. We drove for an hour southwest to Rosetown, Saskatchewan, where we stopped for breakfast. Lunch was taken the clubhouse at Swift Current Golf and Country Club (the club house building was originally the Prairie Grasslands Interpretative Centre, Canadian Wildlife Service at Webb, Saskatchewan).

We arrived in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, late in the afternoon.


 

 

   

Our hotel, the Commerical, in Maple Creek was built at the turn of the last century, it provided us all with a feel for the history of the Maple Creek area. Saturady morning we were hosted by the Creek Classics Car Club to a show and shine in downtown Maple Creek. It was well attended by town folk who loved the little British cars!

Saturday afternoon with picnic lunch in hand we were off to the Cypress Hills Provincial Park where we showed our cars next to Loch Leven in the Park.

Following the car show the group drove to a great lookout. Here we took some group photos and admired the great view. We returned to Maple Creek for a great dinner party at a local restrauant.

   

   
   

Sunday morning we drove into the hills to tour Fort Walsh this National Historic Site is nestled in the hills, it provides a fascinating glimpse of the role of the North West Mounted Police (now RCMP) and early prairie history of the Cypress Hills area. This is the first of many trips within the prairies for our club! by Terry Yuzik, tour leader
