Guy Lombardo's multiple-award-winning Tempo VII hydroplane, built in 1955 and powered by an Allison aircraft engine, has been owned by the City of London since 1983 when it was donated to the City by the late Colonel Tom Lawson.
It is currently on display at London's Jet Aircraft Museum along with the Miss Supertest III hydroplane, immediately northwest of the London International Airport. It is open Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm.
Contact London's heritage planner Don Menard (dmenardATlondon.ca) if you or your organization are interested in displaying the Tempo VII in a public setting for a special short-term event.
LOMBARDO TRIVIA: London-born-and-raised bandleader Guy Lombardo (June 19, 1902- Nov. 5, 1977) never travelled across the bridge named in his honour in London, Ontario, since the bridge never officially opened until Nov. 16, 1978, more than a year after his death.
Guy Lombardo (1902-1977) with his younger sister, Rosemarie Lombardo (1925-2011) in the 1940s. Guy and his brothers in the orchestra actually named their sister Rosemarie, who was born 23 years after Guy.

|Roy McKay Clubhouse/ Labatt Park the lead story on the A-Channel's 11 p.m. news on Jan. 15 with interviews at Labatt Park
AFTER The Friends of Labatt Park made a presentation to the London Advisory Committee on Heritage (LACH) on December 13, the following recommendations went to Planning Committee on Monday, January 15, 2007, for consideration:
"6. That the following actions be taken with respect to the Roy McKay Clubhouse and the [Main] Grandstand at Labatt Park.
(a) the Civic Adminstration BE ASKED to take immediate steps to resolve the moisture issues being experienced in the Roy McKay Clubhouse [clean and repair evestroughs, repair and add extensions to downspouts, install volcanic ash dispensers];

(b) the Civic Administration BE ASKED to prepare plans to restore the Roy McKay Clubhouse to functional clubhouse condition [the ballpark and the clubhouse are both designated heritage properties owned by the City of London].
(c) the Civic Adminstration BE ASKED to take immediate steps to reolve the humidity issues being experienced in the rooms beneath the Main Grandstand in Labatt Park [needs ventilation as moisture is damaging the Architectural block and fungus and mould is growing in the rooms] and to undertake the necessary repairs; it being noted that the Grandstand has been identified as a potential location for the InterCounty Baseball Hall of Fame; and
(d) the Civic Adminstration BE ASKED to prepare a feasibility study/ assessment for its 2007 budget deliberations as the InterCounty team owners have unanimously endorsed using the rooms underneath the Grandstand for its Baseball Hall of Fame;
it being pointed out that the LACH heard verbal presentations from B. Wells and S. Harding and received communications from B. Wells, S. Harding and M. Temme with respect to this issue; it being further noted that the Heritage Planner identifed that some work has been done in 2006 to address concerns that major renovations were not anticipated to be undertaken until the 2007 Budget year (See attached added communications)."
WHAT PLANNING COMMITTEE DID:
Endorsed 6 (a) and (b) but referred 6 (c) and (d) back to city staff, noting that funds have been set aside in the 2007 Draft Budget for the Roy McKay Clubhouse.
Planning Committee's recommendations go before City Council on Monday, January 22, 2007.
The London Majors moved out of the Roy McKay Clubhouse at the end of the 2004 InterCounty Baseball League season, largely due to the poor condition of the showers and the mould and mildew problem.
The clubhouse was constructed after the London Flood of 1937 and is one of the most unique heritage sites in London and one of the few remaining structures of its kind left standing in North America -- at the world's oldest baseball grounds, since 1877.
