LIONS GATE MODEL A FORD CLUB TOUR AND EVENT SCHEDULE 2020
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
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.

Planned Tours and Events for 2021

We are hoping to have some tours organized as soon as the pandemic restrictions on group gatherings are relaxed.
Our tour director would like to do some preliminary planning so we can get these underway with minimal extra work, and would welcome any tour ideas from our members. Please contact Gerry Allen with any ideas.

Meet at 10:30 am at the Ironwood Mall in front of McDonald’s (11666 Steveston Hwy, Richmond – near No. 5 Road)
We leave the Mall at 11:00 am for a scenic drive along the South Fraser River dyke, through historic Steveston village, past YVR, and in front of the mansions of SW Marine Drive in Vancouver.

Then we circle the UBC campus along Marine Drive to arrive at Blenheim Lodge for a “Show’n’Shine” from 2:00 to 3:00 pm for the seniors (refreshments provided).
We missed last year because of COVID-19 rules, but previous times have been a big hit for the Lodge residents to reminisce and admire our cars. Plan to bring your Model A to this event!
