With the COVID-19 pandemic ban on large gatherings, the gate to the Stevensville Conservation Area has been locked since March 25 until further notice. Since Toronto has cancelled events until June 30 with their April 2 announcement, we are do not expect the Niagara Region ban to be lifted by June 14 so we cannot count on our venue reopening in time.

We are instead planning a virtual car show so people who would have participated in person can still display their cars. Since we've been fundraising since we started in 1992, we are asking for a donation for Tender Wishes (via our ecommerce site) with each photo entry (one photo per participant). Once we have all the photos assembled, we'll create a video on our YouTube channel so that it could be more easily shared.

For those of you who were planning to attend our car show in person this year, we would like you to send us a display-worthy photo of your car.  Once we receive your donation, we'll contact you for the photo.

We are going to sell tee-shirts this year and we'll be taking orders on our ecommerce site.  The cutoff date for tee-shirt orders is June 21.  Once the large gathering ban has been lifted, you can pick up your order at the Rods & Relics Post-Pandemic Breakfast, date TBD and hosted by the Fort Erie Conservation Club.  We have some really nice, high quality tee-shirts with heavy cotton jersey for the men and super comfortable lighter cotton jersey for the ladies.  This year, we are offering the shirts in a variety of colours.

Visit the Rods & Relics e-Store to place your order.  We take MasterCard and Visa through PayPal and you can also email payments to us via Interac.
