We had a wonderful time at the Annual Spearhead Boat Cruise on July 1 Canada Day! We were on the Obsession III again this year. We were so fortunate to have clear sunny skies for a tour of the Toronto Harbour and Toronto Islands. We enjoyed a 3 course BBQ chicken lunch served on the lower deck dining room and dancing on the open-air upper deck.  

Thank you again to the crew, bar tenders, servers and the DJ of the Obsession III for their hospitality. Thank you to Vice President John Thompson, Treasurer Ron Gullis and the committee that organized this event! Photos by King Father 2019 Ross
