DUNDARAVE SHOW & RIDE – JUNE 17TH

Sunday, June 17th 2018

The 12th Annual Dundarave Porsche Show and Ride fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis is being planned for Sunday, June 17, 2018- Father’s Day.

With support from the Dundarave Merchants Association and by special permit of the District of West Vancouver we will once again stage a great Porsche display right in the heart of delightful Dundarave Village. As in previous years, the 2400 block on Marine Drive will have its traffic reduced in both directions to one lane each way to allow for the display of our cars. The static display occurs from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. sharp, at which time all cars on display will fire up their engines to head west along Marine Drive towards the upper level highway in the Parade Drive up Cypress mountain for a photo session on the overflow parking lot.

This is PCA-CWR Good Works event with the purpose of raising money for medical research to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, a deadly genetic disease affecting children and young adults across Canada. Money will be raised by means of a donation to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for having your Porsche in the event. Donations of $50 or more will be issued a tax receipt by the CCFF.

The event will be open to PCA-CWR members – as well as anyone else with a Porsche – as this will be a good opportunity to attract new members to the PCA and to promote interest in our favorite marque. We had a great variety of Porsche types and model years on display in previous shows, with over 120 cars participating last year, and maybe this year we’ll top last year’s  number of Porsches, and we might just be able to fit them all in on the 2400 block!

Parade 2017 in Spokane was a fantastic event! IF you missed it then circle your calendar for next year.
Parade 2018 will be hosted in Missouri at Lake of the Ozarks ( Tan-Tar-A Resort) on July 8-14th, 2018.
Parade is PCA’s annual, weeklong event when thousands of members descend upon a new location every year to explore in their Porsches — often in Parade-organized driving tours — in addition to other events such as autocross, concours, time-speed-distance and gimmick rallies, banquets, regional-specific activities, and more. Bring the kids, too, as they’ll be kept busy with activities including model Porsche concours, RC car racing, and ice-cream socials (well, adults can join in the ice-cream, too).

We encourage you to save the date!

Registration will be open in Spring of 2018.

Sun Peaks Flashback to the 80′s Weekend Tour  July 15-17th

Sun Peaks Flashback to the 80′s Weekend Tour July 15-17th

Second Annual Sun Peaks Flashback To The 80’s Weekend Tour

Friday, July 15, Saturday, July 16, Sunday, July 17

It is back again – this year bigger and better.

Enjoy a three day fun weekend of driving more of the iconic Porsche roads of Southern B. C.  This year as a bonus we have the opportunity to meet and make new friends from the BC Interior Porsche Club who will join us at Sun Peaks as they celebrate their club’s 25th Anniversary.

Leaving FRIDAY morning from Starbucks  at 1399 Sumas Way, Abbotsford,  we drive the scenic  Fraser Canyon stopping for  lunch at historic  Hat  Creek Ranch.  After lunch we continue north to 93 Mile then east  to Lone Butte, Bridge Lake and Little Fort then south  to  our destination the Sun Peaks Grand.

SATURDAY, it is your choice.  Ride the Sunburst Express chair lift (lift tickets included with hotel registration) up the mountain to walk the stunning alpine trails and enjoy the early wild flowers or just take  a walk around the village and enjoy what it has to offer . Play a round of golf on the highest elevation   golf course in B. C. or just relax poolside. A scenic day drive is also planned to head north to Clearwater and Wells Gray Provincial Park and Helmcken Falls one of the most spectacular waterfalls in North America.

Saturday evening we will enjoy a great BBQ ($35/person) on the patio deck of the Grand and take in the back to the 80’s live music and entertainment from the best seats in town. Don’t forget looking the part makes this evening all the more fun so start digging into your closets now to retrieve your best 80’s attire.

SUNDAY we return to Vancouver via Lillooet and the Duffy Lake Road with a lunch and wine tasting at the award winning Fort Berens  Estate Winery in Lillooet.

We have booked a limited number of rooms at the Sun Peaks Grand for our tour that the Hotel will hold for us until June 15.
