As 2016 draws to a close, it's time to start making plans for our Radium Hot Springs event for 2017.

Dates for the event are yet to be confirmed, but if you live locally an would like to help in putting this great event on, our first organizational meeting is slated for this coming Monday, December 5th
Place: Brewsters Bonavista SE
Time: 7:00 pm

Further meetings will follow in the new year, the schedule for which will be discussed on Monday evening.

A shout out to Skye to sticky this topic for us please, as this will be the thread to watch for news and updates.


The event will be added to the calendar as soon as dates are finalized. Watch this space.

Andrew:
Going to San Diego as some of your members probably are. Awaiting with interest, to see what dates you come up with. We have been looking at coming down 97 to around Susanville. If timing worked out we could come to Radium , cross at Yahk and connect to the 97 that way.

The date for BritsBest has been fixed for June 17 & 18 2017, its traditional Father's Day weekend date.
Look for some minor tweaks to the weekend activities, and hopefully a reduction in cost which the committee are working on.
Continue to watch this space.

That's Great News Andy thumbs up

Not having the conflict of dates means you will get the support from Edmonton once more. smileys with beer
I am sure we can rustle up some interesting cars this year

We hope to see you and 'Many" fellow Calgarians join us on the 10th June for the All British Field Meet in Victoria Park
and maybe make a weekend of it swelling our numbers at the Reynolds Museum 'History Road' car show on the 11th (free if pre booked)

"This year's BritsBest Calssics celebrates the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the MGC and will have a "picnic" theme. The show field will be set up in small groups of "picnickers", so come with your picnic and settle down to visit with friends old and new. A short fun drive/rally is being planned to fill the time between the show and Saturday evening activities.
Friday night will see a return to the Calgary MG Car Club hosted "ice breaker" with light snacks and refreshments offered, and Saturday night offers a steak BBQ and more time to visit with friends.

All the fine details are being finalized and Registration will open soon, so please watch this space."

Love the poster Andy
Hopefully no objections to including it in our monthly magazine
We should be able to bring a "Calssic" or even several Classics though I don't think we will find an MGC in or around Edmonton.
Have plenty of variations of the classic in the foreground though.smileys with beer Pick a colour

Enjoyed the event so much last year that we've already taken the plunge and registered for '17. A Lotus again, but a Europa this year, although that will cut down on the available space for picnic equipment.

Looking forward to seeing you in Radium Mike, and we'll make sure that local business will have what's needed for a decent picnic.

Entries are rolling in at a healthy pace, so be sure to get yours in sooner rather than later to ensure the best choice of accommodation.
Our host hotels have a variety of room types for the special rate of $99 ( includes a hot breakfast each day ), and a confirmed entry is required to book a room.

Entries are still rolling in at a healthy pace, and our room block has only 10 rooms remaining.
With little more than a month to go, the time to get your entry in is now, before our event rooms sell out.
Other accommodation is available in Radium, but we have not negotiated rates or secured room blocks at those properties.

Our current entry includes many returning folks and a healthy number of new faces as well.

Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones in June.

Looking forward to it!

I will be leaving Salmon Arm around 2pm that Friday (possibly earlier) if anyone is heading to Radium from BC and wants to convoy with me.

Send me a PM and we can work out details.

Cheers,
Chris
