On February 10th The Vancouver Island Region was “born”.
Vancouver Island Region began as an offshoot of Canada West Region. The main focus was on Autocross, but it soon developed into a very social club as well. Our club has done some amazing things over the years, ” Ice Cream Sunday” turned into ” The European and Classic Car Picnic” (between 2007 and 2010 VIR raised over $400,000 for The Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children on Vancouver Island) The European and Classic Car picnic has evolved into GAIN’s Vancouver Island Motor Gathering.
” Spring to the River”, “Crown Isle “and “Black Rock” are examples of some of the more amazing events our club has put on. “Black Rock” has had a huge impact on the Ucluelet community. The Ucluelet Volunteer Fire Brigade was been essential to the success of our event. Our Black Rock events have helped the UVFB purchase a new Rescue Vehicle, and send their members for training. Black Rock has also helped the Club Raise over $45,000 for Cops for Cancer Tour De Rock.
Vancouver Island Regions success has been due to you the members! I have never been involved with a club that has had more friendly and hard working individuals. Our club has grown to 240 and has been rising every month!
Every year it seems we have a wide range of events that happen all over the island. Your executive have some exciting events planned to celebrate the clubs 20th so stay tuned!
