Beautiful day for the Knox Mountain Hill Climb in Kelowna. For over 60 years, it has hosted the longest annual, paved hill climb in North America. The hill consists of ten major turns, climbing 800 vertical feet over 2.2 miles.
There were several BCIR members that participated in the Show and Shine.
BCIR’s first Cars and Coffee of the season in Kelowna was a big success! The venue has been changed to the Capital News Centre off Gordon Drive. Over 30 vehicles showed up all cleaned and polished. Members embraced the cooler temperatures while enjoying tasty treats and hot coffee.
Next is Kamloops Cars and Coffee on Sunday April 16th, 10 am at Riverside Park. Hope to see lots of members come out.
Thank you to the members that turned out for BCIR’s Porsche and Pints at the Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna. Around 30 members gathered in the Whisky Room of the iconic hotel. Watch for upcoming events as we get into spring… Photos by Oskar
PCA partnered up with Princess Cruises for the inaugural 8 day ZoneFest at Sea from December 10 – 18, 2022. The cruise was out of Fort Lauderdale to St Maarten, St Kitts, San Juan and Grand Turk. There are over 600 PCA members onboard… some from BCIR and Canada West Regions. Fun events were planned like a Diecast Concours where members brought 118 models from home for judging. There were also cocktail receptions, formal dinners, seminars and events on the islands. The Puerto Rico Chapter welcomed the PCA members to Wheels and Espresso. A few members brought their Porsches.
Members present were: CWR President Matt Stogryn, Past Presidents CWR Ray Gumbel and BCIR Brad Pape plus BCIR’s Social Media Kelly Pape. Also PCA’s President Tom Gorsuch, Past President Caren Cooper and executive director Vu Nguyen.
The cruise was a huge success and there is talk of trying to sell out an entire ship with PCA members. Keep watching for upcoming news of a second cruise…
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.
