2019 Founders Day - Saturday 13th April - Heritage Park

#1 Post by ANDYD » Mon Dec 03, 2018 8:36 am

Attention All Land Rover Owners, the biggest Indoor Land Rover Show on the West Coast

Mark it on your calendars, Saturday April 13th 2019 once again held at the Heritage Park, Luckakuck Way, Chilliwack.
Doors open at 11am until 7pm, see the poster below for more details.

This years event promises to be bigger and better, a huge amount of indoor space, a larger indoor obstacle course and lots more going on, loads of Land Rover related merchandise, raffle, prizes and activities.
To celebrate 71 years of Land Rover, the first 71 Land Rovers through the door will receive a unique Rover-Landers Metal Enamel Camping Mug

We plan to arrange onsite camping for those coming from out of town and a fun off-road adventure into the mountains the Sunday following the event.

More detailed information will be posted in the upcoming weeks, stay tuned.....

Looking for volunteers on Friday evening to help set up the Obstacle Course and helpers on the day with parking, course marshals etc...
email me if you can help out roverlanders@shaw.ca

Hi Andy,

Any chance we want to add this event to the Harrison Auto Events list? It might drum up some Rovers that are unfamiliar with the club.

Hi Jordan,

Thanks for the tip, I tried half a dozen times to enter our event over the last couple of days but the "Submit an Event" form is not working! :roll:
I then tried to contact them to let them know the Submit form is not working but the "contact us" form is not working :roll:

Oh well, it was a good idea anyway!

Cheers,
Andy

This year at Founders Day to celebrate 71 years of Land Rover we will be giving out a unique custom made metal enamel Camping Mug to the first 71 Land Rovers through the door.... if you do happen to be number 72 through the door or want a matching one for your "other half", then we will have a few extra mugs for sale on the merchandise table Once there gone, there gone!

Hi Bill,
There is a small field out back of the Heritage Park building, camping has been arranged there for Friday evening and Saturday evening.
There are washrooms & showers available but expect basic field camping (no electric hook-ups).
There is a group coming from the Okanagan but not sure which route they are taking.
See you on Saturday
cheers,
Andy

I see the doors open at 11am on Saturday.....did you want folks with vehicles to arrive and set up at an earlier time or is 11am when you would like us to arrive and set up?

Looking forward to the drive down again..... ;-)

cheers, Bill

Hi Bill,

Doors open at 11am, so the best time to arrive and drive in is between 11am and noon.

Doors will remain open all through the day for those who cant arrive until a little later ...

cheers,
Andy

Yes, a BIG thank you to all the volunteers who helped us before, during and after the event. We rely on your energy and assistance to make this event happen.

We had 74 Land Rovers of all sizes and shapes parked up on display and many of them went on to run the fun Log Obstacle Course.

Here are a few photos, the rest can be found in the Gallery here http://roverlanders.bc.ca/gallery/index ... s-Day-2019

Cheers, Andy

This video was created as a message to thank our volunteers and sponsors. Unfortunately, my video of the Series-1 trucks (e.g., Marty Rothman) and the 101 cabover was corrupted. It could not be edited into the video. If anyone has a video of these trucks, please send it to me @ acgoh1 (at) msn.com

Thanks!
