Eric Beamish, Bob Gasson and John Harrison had attended many cruise nights together through the late 90’s.   Putting together the positive aspects of these other events, Eric came up with the idea of a local car club.  Thus, in 1998, the Wasaga Golden Oldies came to be.


The first cruise nights were held at the Riverbend Plaza where Tim Horton’s is located.  When the location was outgrown they moved to the Bayside Mall (presently Foodland Plaza).  After John moved out west, Eric didn’t have time to run the club himself, Rick and Michelle Seip stepped up to help out, and the organization of the Fun Run and other activities were initiated.  In 2006 the Wasaga Beach Cruisers became an official car club with approximately 40 members. The WBC was organized by three guys, (with the help from others) Bob Gasson, Ron Riddell and Russ Philp. The "Club" has not looked back.
