Orr Camp and Donkey Riding

As some of you already know, I’m from Orillia, Ont, and years ago my friends and I would sometimes see Bobby Orr and his pals enjoying cold ones at the Atherley Arms Hotel (aka The First) as we also enjoyed our own cold ones.

Apparently Orr wasn’t exactly hands-on with his hockey camp which was near Orillia. I know a guy who went there and he said the only time Orr showed up in the entire week was for a photo session (The guy showed me his photo of him and Bobby).

At one point, Orr and Mike Walton and the gang got together and held a baseball game and donkey race outside the Orillia arena, and my brother, who was about ten at the time, took these photos.
