ROB MCLEESE
Founder & Chair
ROB MCLEESE
Robert McLeese is the President and Founder of Access Capital Corp., a company dedicated to independent power project financing and development. Along with his late father, Willis McLeese, Rob began developing a portfolio of sustainable energy projects in the 1980s providing primarily small and medium-sized companies the funding and development support needed to invest in environmental projects. Their leadership has facilitated significant advances in the sustainable energy sector. In 2011, they were awarded the Stephen Probyn Prize for Innovation in Energy.

In 1998 Rob’s father Willis McLeese purchased the land and started the development of Cobble Beach, Georgian Bay’s Extraordinary Waterfront Golf Resort Community. Both Willis and Robert saw the possibilities that one day Cobble Beach Golf Resort would host a prestigious Concours event on the cobblestone adorned shores of Cobble Beach. (Willis did business in California and loved the Pebble Beach resort.) The McLeese vision, to see a wonderful promenade of beautiful antique and classic cars parading down Cobble Beach Drive to the elegant Clubhouse, would be a magnificent and magical sight not only for those viewing the automobiles but also for those driving the pieces of art. This gave birth to the concept of the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

Rob’s deep commitment to renewable resources and sustainable development is entrenched in all areas of his life, including his passion for Cobble Beach Golf Resort Community near Owen Sound, Ontario. The 574-acre property puts sustainability and the environment at the forefront, with a five-star Inn and Clubhouse that employs geothermal heating and cooling, as well as an 18-hole award-winning golf course which uses significantly less pesticides, herbicides and water than a typical golf course.

Rob, the proud owner of a 1971 Porsche 911 E Targa, is a NAACC certified Judge and recently judged at the Arizona Concours d’Elegance, The Hershey Elegance, Concours of America, Crescent Beach Concours Hilton Head Concours and others. Rob also won the NAACC Hobbyist of the year award in 2014.

WILLIAM ARMSTRONG
My wife Patricia Godschalk and I live on a small farm near Jordan Station, ON where we produce peaches, plums, nectarines and pears. We also grow an assortment of vegetables. A lot of what we produce is sold at the farmers market and some is sold on a vendors run through Southern Ontario.  
I also own and operate a trucking company with refrigerated and flatbed service throughout Canada and USA. My real passion is collecting and restoring older vehicles and in particular Dodge and Fargo trucks. Being in the transportation business has allowed me the opportunity to deliver a load of freight in the same region where the old vehicles I have sourced are. I simply load them on a return trip. This has gone on for 30 years!! I look forward to my continued involvement with NAACC using the knowledge and skills that I have assembled during my many years in this hobby.

The NAACC helps to protect the legacy of where the vehicles have come from so that future generations will be allowed a glimpse into the past. I am pleased to be an Ontario NAACC Director. Last year one of my show winning trucks was graced with a win at the Cobble Beach Concours. I am an NAACC judge and look forward to participating in the Cobble Beach Concours again this year.

Judge
GEOFFREY MCLEESE
Morley McDonald was born in Calgary, AB. His dad was a career military officer. He

was his introduction to old cars. It mattered not whether the car was a custom,
stock, hotrod or just a beater, he loved them all.
Living in Maryland and Virginia, he had access to racing. This became a weekend
event. With Martinsville being just hours away and several drag strips even closer,
weekends could not come soon enough. While living in Maryland, he became friends
with the White family, particularly, Rex White who was NASCAR Champion in 1960.
That was an amazing time for Morley. After seven years, he ended up in Winnipeg
where he began his police career which.. ended in Victoria BC many years later. He
became involved in production of forestry seedlings and later in the trucking industry.
Since living in Penticton BC he has been involved with Vintage Car Club of

Judge
CHUCK STANFORD JR.
Chuck hails from Scottsdale, Arizona where he is a Co-Founder and Director of the Arizona Concours d’Elegance, which celebrated its third glorious gathering in January at the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Arizona Biltmore Hotel and Resort. A lifelong aficionado of classic car engineering and design, Chuck has been an active leader in the Mercedes-Benz Club of America including being elected three times to their National Board and serving as National Concours Chair. Along with his wife Ava, they are consistent podium rallye enthusiasts, and recently added a pristine 1970 280 SL “Pagoda” to their collection. This is Chuck’s first year judging at the Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
“I have been a devout car guy since I was knee high to the gas cap of my dad’s 1957 Buick Roadmaster. Like many future enthusiasts, I snuck my first drives when I was more-than-a-few years from being legal, and had my entire future exotic collection “garaged” in my head by the time I was about 12 years old.
After studying engineering in Detroit and fully intending to enter the auto industry, I graduated from Business School and pursued a successful career in corporate finance and management, but my focus on enduring design and quality engineering never faded and I nurtured my love for extraordinary automobiles.”
Moving to Phoenix in 1985, he became immersed in the automobile culture that has become Arizona Classic Car Week, and finally fulfilled his fantasy of owning an iconic 1966 Mercedes-Benz Cabriolet – a car that he and his wife Ava have enjoyed for nearly 25 years. Chuck also owned several other collector M-Bs and became heavily involved in the Mercedes-Benz Club – MBCA. He served fifteen years as local section President, as a Regional Director on the National Board, and as National Concours Chair, where he led local teams – and judged - in numerous MBCA National conventions and Concours. He was also the Concours Chair of StarFest 2012 in Phoenix – held at the historic /Arizona Biltmore Hotel and Spa – and became the first person in the 83-year history of the hotel to arrange and display automobiles on the landscaped inner grounds of this classic Frank Lloyd Wright inspired art deco property.
This success led to the formation of the Arizona Concours d’Elegance, which recently completed its third year to rave reviews in the worldwide automotive press. We celebrate the artistry and superb engineering of classic marques and world renowned designers. Having led the Concours Selection Committee for three years, he used the opportunity to learn a great deal more about authenticity and classic car judging and requirements.
“As a Concours judge, I have gained experience mostly through judging no fewer than six MBCA National Events, and spent countless hours with Arizona Concours judges vetting cars for our own competition. As an attendee, I have also observed and studied the judging process at Pebble Beach (3), Amelia Island (9), Arizona (3), La Jolla, Palos Verdes, and other smaller Concours. 
I am excited at the opportunity to work closely with Chief Judge John Carlson learning the fine points of Concours Judging, and to become involved with the Cobble Beach Show. I look forward to being with you in September.”
