WochenendEscape at Crown Isle:  Play, Drive, Connect



    

Registration opens in November 1! Register

The Vancouver Island Region PCA is excited to host the Zone 6 “Escape” for 2024, combined with our second annual Wochenende (German for "Weekend") at Crown Isle. This multiregion event takes place Thursday, May 23 to Sunday, May 26, 2024. We are busy getting ready for a weekend of driving, socializing, and supporting local charities. New for this year – the weekend will also feature the very first Zone 6 TSD Rally!

Home base is Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community in Courtenay, B.C. Activities will take place across the Comox Valley and beyond, where we’ll explore the hidden gems of Vancouver Island. Winding roads, ocean views and green fairways await you and your P-cars.

Main activities for the event include a Thursday evening Welcome Reception; Friday “Show & Shine”; organized drives and rallies on Saturday; and a Gala Dinner & Live Auction on Saturday night. There are many other activities in the works that may interest you, from golfing to getting out on the water to see wildlife. Choose the events you wish to participate in or relax and explore the area on your own.

Fundraising will support Cops for Cancer “Tour de Rock” and the local food banks.

We are pleased to announce that the pricing is being held at $399.00 per person - the same as 2023.
