NEW EVENTS

FATHER'S DAY
 FAMILY MEET and GREET

Drive the family in your beloved Porsche out on Father's Day to Williams Park in Langley. Enjoy a casual meet up with other PCA-CWR families. Bring a lawn chair and some coffee or beverages. Enjoy some time on Father's Day with your car, your family and other Porsche people. Get out and explore this beautiful park with a great playground, picnic areas both covered and open, easy loop trails, the Salmon River and woodlands. Something for all ages and adventure levels. Child and pet friendly! This is not a club drive, so no registration or waivers required. Come for as long as you like or just stop by for a quick "hello". 

This is a public space so please bring a mask and practice social distancing.

This park can get quite busy with recreational use so arrive early for good parking.

If you want some pavement fun, here is a short local drive that you can run solo before/after the meetup or at another time.
Williams Park to Fort-to-Fort Trail, Derby Reach Regional Park (43 km, 52 minutes)

Note: This is NOT an organized drive and is not a club event. Run at your leisure.

As always, local health protocols must be followed and event plans and routes are subject to change.

OLD SCHOOL COOL

SUNDAY AUGUST 1, 2021

an event that is so “Last Century”


Bring out your old-school vehicles for a new event that is part Cars and Coffee and part C2Sky Drive.  This event is open to all Porsche Club Canada West Region members with a twist... bring any make, any model, any vintage and any style of vehicle as long as it is “Old School Cool.”

The older the car the better.  This event is not only vintage Air Cooled Porsche friendly (please, someone bring a 356), it’s a chance to show off what club members have in their garage - the best of Germany, Japan, Italy, America, Sweden, the UK and who knows where.  As long as it’s Old and Cool... we want to see it!

Here’s the plan:

 
Meet up at 8:00 AM for a Cars and Coffee style hang out in North Vancouver

At 9:00 AM we will roll out for a drive along the Upper Levels to Cypress, travel up and down the mountain

Carry on up the classic and scenic Sea to Sky highway to the Sea to Sky Gondola

Time:  8:00 AM Sunday August 1, 2021
Location:  North Vancouver
