There were probably around 8 or 10 young boys like me, all as confused and nervous as myself, as well as the scout leader. He was tall and wore a similar uniform, but it was covered in badges and his hat looked like something a Royal Canadian Mountie would wear.
Somehow, I had heard of a new bike that had been introduced by the C.C.M. company. The Mustang was C.C.M.'s Canadian made version of the successful U.S manufactured Schwinn Stingray bike.
