Black Rock Weekend Event in Ucluelet

Some BCIR members attended the 9th Annual Black Rock Resort weekend hosted by the Vancouver Island Region. We were excited to have Mark Prusynski, the new Zone 6 Rep from Boise Idaho, join in on the weekend after hearing such great things about the event.

A bunch of cars met in Nanaimo and drove together along the twisty roads to Ucluelet. Weekend events included a show and shine on the downtown dock, autocross, breakfast and dinner with fireworks provided by the Volunteer Fire Brigade, scotch tasting, poker run, parade through town and wind up banquet.

Through auctions and donations, the Porsche group raised a whopping $22,000 for Cops for Cancer “Tour de Rock” and more for the local Volunteer Fire Brigade.
