Kelowna Airport 30th Anniversary Photo Shoot

Thank you to one of our members for setting up this photo shoot with a plane in the background. They measured out so each car was the same distance apart. Then one of our members went up on a scissor lift and shot the image from above. In honour of BCIR’s 30th Anniversary, we tried to form the members into a 3 and 0.

Cars and Coffee, Fill a Frunk and Airport Shoot

It was quite a day! First we had a large gathering of members meet at the Porsche Centre Kelowna where they hosted our September Cars and Coffee. Then we went to the Central Okanagan Food Bank to drop off our donations and tour the facilities. A week later, Kamloops had their own Fill a Frunk for the local food bank. Thank you to everyone that participated and gave so generously!

BCIR Donated to Gold River Food Bank

Had dry roads and the few vehicles we came upon pulled over for us, waving and smiling. Not the one finger wave. We arrived on time for more food. Great service and food, thanks to the Owners and Staff at the Ridge Roadhouse in Gold River. To continue the VIR tradition that was started over 10 years ago of donating to the Gold River Food Bank, BCIR members (all 20) presented the food bank with a cheque and cash totalling $870.00. As this is the largest amount ever donated, now the challenge is on. VIR, CWR and even WWR and Polar are challenged to meet or beat this on their next visit. Listening to the lady accepting the donation was heartwarming and brought a few tears in some. Then time to continue the adventure. By the time I was mobile, I realized that there was no one behind me. Finally got rid of them. Strange feeling, as all had left smiling in anticipation of the ride back. After brief gathering where we started the day, all went their own way to our next evening stop. Upon arrival, a few where already resting.
