Yes I will be bringing the ambulance to Van Dusen. Hoping I'll make the gate I'll be in the 7am ferry which will put me at Van Dusen with 15min to get in!

Excellent news. :D Good luck with the ferry. They're not the most reliable form of transportation. :shock:

Registered for it last week, so hope to get there! Was going to go last year but it got booked-out, so just went for a wander round.

Quite fancy the Whistler run on the Sunday, but haven't made up my mind yet...

One week to go...

There is only one week to go until the ABFM and the lastest count is 24 Land Rovers signed up. Last year they closed registration a few days before the event so if you are thinking of going don't think too long!! This year is a tribute to the Land Rover Series II

The Grizzly Torque will be there on display (not entered) and you can enter to win a signed numbered Robert Bateman Snow Leopard Print to be drawn for at the show.

Guess I'm not doing the Whistler run - Sold Out!

ABFM still 'open' for Registration if anyone hasn't decided yet....
