    I cut and pasted this to the Vancouver Island Land Cruiser club page. I'd like to attend, but just can't make it work this year.
    Is there a one day fee? So a person can come in for a day, or is that discouraged?

    Yep, the day pass is $45, but that still gives you access to everything, all the classes, driving on the technical course, the happy hours and wine-tasting class in the afternoon, and the chance to win prizes at the nightly raffle. I think each night we are giving away at least one or two big prizes (winches, a set of AT or MT tires, a roof top tent, a 12V fridge, etc).

    If you come on a day-pass and decide to camp and drive home in the morning, it's just $10 to camp overnight.

    I just heard that offroad racing legend Emily Miller is coming as an instructor and presenter at the BC Overland Rally.

    Emily raced the Baja 1000 for many years for Rod Hall racing, and has multiple podium wins as driver and navigator in rallies and races around the world. Now she runs events around the world, under her brands, or for BFG, etc.



    She will be co-teaching the ladies-only offroad driving and recovery classes, doing a presentation to get ladies enrolled in the new Rebelle Rally series, and she will also be teaching an advanced two-hour backcountry navigation class that is open to everybody.

    So make sure your wife/daughter/girlfriend has this in her calendar. (BTW, if you have teens, anyone under 19 is free to attend with an adult, and anyone with a valid driver's licence can participate in all the driving classes).

    Are you sure you can't juggle things around?

    So far the goody-bag prizes include:

    A roof top tent

    at least one 9500lb winch

    a 12V fridge/freezer

    a set of LED lights

    A full set of AT or MT tires to fit whatever you drive


    :-)

    Taking time off the third week of a four week plant shutdown to replace the control system just isn't going to happen - unfortunately.
