Don’t forget our Rally in the Valley June 8,9 & 10.
Colin, Oliver and Shelly are hosting the event this year and we are hoping for a well attended event just like days of yore.

Ok, I suppose i should change my signature name now the 90 is in better hands. The green van (or man) would probably appropriate.

Eric.

Hi, just checking in with the Roverlanders from the mainland side... what time are you planning to take the ferry? I am planning to take the 3.15 pm Twassassen - Duke Point ferry on Friday.

Just 5 more sleeps until the Rally! If anyone else is coming please let us know so we can make sure there is enough breakfast on Sunday for all.

For Saturday night the suggested food to bring and prepare is Salad or Desserts.

On Sunday there are plans for a scratch run after breakfast. It should last about 3 hours and then you can leave from there to wherever you need to be. We should be back on the hardpan by 1:30 (depends on how many Jeeps need rescuing). This will give you plenty of time to catch an afternoon ferry. The destination will be the famous Mt. Sicker Mines.

See you there!
Colin

Hi Andrew & All

Not sure if its too early for you, but a few of us that are heading from the Mainland are aiming for the 12:45 Friday ferry, Twassassen to Duke Point, will likely have to be there at least 1 hour before if not reserving.

Cheers,
Andy
