AGM Dinner Social

BCIR had their wind up AGM dinner last night at 19 Okanagan Grill and Bar in West Kelowna. The food was excellent and it great to catch up with everyone.
BCIR would like to thank all of the members that stepped up to be on the 2023 board. Its going to be an exciting season next year now having a complete board with all of the positions filled. Lots of fresh faces with new ideas.
Congratulations to all of the door prize winners. Along with local wines was a complete detailing package from Gold Coast Automotive and a special prize of a track day at Area 27 from August Luxury Motorcars. We appreciate all of our prize donators, advertisers and partners. Without them, we would not have had such a successful season.Watch for upcoming events during the winter months.

2nd Ladies Only Drive

BCIR had their 2nd Ladies Only Drive and this time to Summerland. Lunch was at the wonderful Shaughnessy’s Cove Restaurant where the ladies were able to dine outside due to the warm October weather. 

Thank you to Karina for setting it all up. In next year’s schedule, she is going to organize two more events so watch for those dates in the spring.

Big thank you to Dave for setting up the event and for leading the tour!
