LIONS GATE MODEL A FORD CLUB TOUR AND EVENT SCHEDULE 2018
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Please contact Gerry Allen if you have any ideas for tours. He will gladly help to organize the tours but needs your ideas.
 

Once decided upon, events and tours will go ahead unless there is a technical requirement – space, management, or facilities. Often, group reservations for admissions or lunch must be made in advance and are dependent on the number of attendees. In this circumstance, there will be clear requirements for advance registration. Sign-up sheets are available at monthly meetings.

If you cannot attend a meeting to sign up, please advise Gerry if you intend to join the tour.
If you must cancel for any reason, or will be late in arriving at the designated meeting place, please inform Gerry or the tour coordinator as soon as possible so we can avoid delays
.

For your reference, and as a reminder for those who have signed up, sign-up lists are posted in the members area.
Your consideration is appreciated.

Please review and follow the Tour Rules and Guidelines below to ensure we all have an enjoyable time on the tour.

VCCC Antique Chapter Good Friday run for pre-WWII vehicles.
This run is weather dependent.

Meet at noon at 1675 Cliveden Ave. on Annacis Island (at the far west end of the Island). This is the same location as last year and is where Totem A&T hosts the Model T driving clinic. There is lots of street parking for trailers. Please note there are no washroom facilities, however Tim Horton's is just down the road.
Leave at 12:30 for 1/2 hour drive, returning to Tim Horton's for a warm-up coffee.

We will be leaving the island on the old bridge and will make our way through Queensborough to River Road. This scenic drive continues along the Fraser River for some miles until we get to #6 road. We'll head south and eventually make our way back to the Timmy's at Cliveden and Carlton Ct. on Annacis Island. Print off these route instructions - limited extras will be available.
Traffic should be light and stop signs, traffic lights and hills are minimal.

Contact Derek Morton (604-671-9840) in the morning if unsure about a weather cancellation.
