Sunday September 27th. 1- 4pm
Starting at 1:00 Tim Horton’s – Shellbourne and Cedar Hill x Road.
You have heard of the TV show The Amazing Race, well think of that format on our club’s event budget and with you know who organizing it. Four locations you get to drive your own car to, (be it a Mini, Toyota, Porsche or Land Rover) Four team challenges to complete. Challenges may include but not be limited to: Walking on wet grass (proper footwear is recommended and not provided) Golf (well sort of) Croquet (or is it croquette one has to do with potatoes)
Sock tossing (sock will be provided, may even be donated by the person not wearing proper wet coast footwear) Bocce (with a real pallino or maybe just a potato)
Gum Boot tossing or Welly tossing for some of you (or even tossing a potato into a gumboot or Welly) There may even be no potatoes at all? Just like on the TV show, teams will complete each challenge, once everyone has had a chance, then we all proceed to the next destination.
Teams will be formed by the organizer.
If you would like to participate – Please let me know.
If you would like to go out for early supper at the 4 mile pub (we had a great dinner there after last years Poker Run)
Please let me know.

Sunday, September 13, 2015 was a great sunny day at the Fort Rodd Hill Park. The English Car Affair in the Park had all types of English automobiles on show. Several members of our club attended and it was a pleasure to answer all sorts of questions being asked by the fellow car folks and general public about the Minis and the rare GTM. Karen brought her Lotus-Mini and the MINIs were equally appreciated as well. Linda and Mike were lucky on this day to win draw prizes. Here are a few photos.
PORTLAND ABFM It was a zero dark-thirty rise to board the 6:10 am COHO sailing to Port Angeles. We had a good sized convoy of cars that represented both old and new Minis to display at the Portland All British Field Meet (ABFM) held at the Portland International Raceway from 4 – 6 September 2015. The road trip created by Mike with input from others was a lot of fun. We stopped off at Rochester WA for lunch in the Highway Diner that provided us with excellent food, and service all for a reasonable price (strongly recommend stopping there if you can – try the Pie!). Arriving at our accommodations, we took time to clean up the cars. The ABFM having over 800 English vehicles in attendance was almost a sensory overload. The SOVREN racing along with the autocross and Slalom and off-roading provided non-stop fun. Dwayne, Merville, Richard and Terry all took home awards for their Class of car. In the evening we were joined by other car enthusiasts for yet another delightful meal at the Stanford’s Restaurant and Bar in Jantzen Beach SuperCenter. The Sunday provided great deals at the Swap and Shop and of course the racing continued despite a bit of rainy weather. After spending a few hours at the Swap and Shop, those of us that wished to get some mall shopping done were rewarded with good deals. On our return journey, Linda navigated us to the Black Bear Diner in Sequim WA that Richard had recommended where again, we all enjoyed a very good meal. Our journey ended with the Coho back to Victoria. It was a fantastic trip with lots of laughter and good times. For those that have not done it, you should consider doing in the future (so keep it in mind as it is held during the Labor Day Long weekend).
