June 11 ~ 14, 2020

Don’t forget to send a thank you to the company that provided the door prize you won !  If you don’t know who they are contact me at: busfusion@aol.com   Please support all the great BusFusion Sponsors.




BusFusion 2018 was a resounding success with about 270 registered attendees.  I know there was a 250 bus limit, but that number never included the committee members plus there were a few last minute requests to attend that we just could not refuse like the young couple from Holland travelling the world and were nearby.  Awesome to meet you Mattijs & I forget your partners name. Hope you enjoyed BusFusion it was a pleasure to have you.  Thanks to all the committee members and volunteers for making the event run so smoothly   Thanks to all the Sponsors who provided door prizes and thanks to the weatherman for giving us perfect weather.  Have a good summer and see you all in Almonte next year.  If you have photos to share upload them here.

We still need one more committee member to help Nancy and eventually take her place as Volunteer coordinator.

Thanks to all previous and new committee members for helping get BusFusion 2018 on the road to success.


BusFusion is in dire need of new committee members, without some additional help we, the current committee members, are stressed to the point that it will be difficult to make BusFusion work for 2018. Here are the positions that need to be filled: Registration: to help Eric. Fairgrounds liaison: to help and eventually replace Jim, should be someone local to Almonte. Volunteer co-ordinator: to help and eventually replace Nancy. T-shirt co-ordinator: to take over from Mike and work with Eric. Security at the event: new position. Committee meeting this Sunday, October 22, 1 pm at Frank & Rita’s, message me if you’re interested in helping.  <busfusion@aol.com>
