June 10th Vancouver Island Land Rover Rally.

Yes, it is a GO next Saturday. Rain or shine. An off-road drive starting at 9 AM Saturday, back at the farm about 5 to prepare for the pot-luck dinner. Breakfast by our household served on the deck at the house at 8 Sunday morning.

Camping in the field is welcome with most people staying over Friday and Saturday nights.

Hi Greg,
That's great news, thanks for the update.

For those coming from the Mainland, post up here, maybe we can all be on the same ferry?
This is a great yearly tradition, family friendly event for the Land Rover community, hope you can make it.
Recommend a Friday late afternoon departure from the Mainland and camp out at Greg's "estate" on the Friday night, That way its a nice relaxing start to Saturday morning. If you want to head over on Saturday morning it will need to be the first ferry from the Mainland to be able to get to Greg's Farm before the departure of the group run.

I have posted below some directions from Greg on previous years...

Location

Meet at Greg's Property, four miles north of Duncan, BC. (Vancouver Island)
48 49' 13.44" N 123 41' 9.23" W

If you're on Vancouver Island, head for Duncan. On Highway 1 about three kilometres north of Duncan, there's a traffic light at Highway 18 (48. 48' 60" N 123. 43' 04.95" W). Turn EAST, the east side of this intersection is Herd Road. Go 2.3 kilometres along Herd Road and turn south (right) onto Mays Road. We live on the corner of Mays and Herd 48 49' 13.44" N 123 41' 9.23" W. The house is a hundred metres or so along Mays on the left. Grey wood siding with a blue steel roof. There is a red barn with a galvanized steel roof right beside the road and house. The address is 6905 Mays Road South. The meeting area is in the field behind the house, take the narrow driveway beside the barn and park in the field.

I'll be there Andy. I hope a few others are able to attend as it is always a great day of exploring the area, then a fabulous dinner and breakfast the next day.
I'll probably be heading over Friday afternoon.

Hi Chris,

I will likely be on the 3.15pm ferry, how about you?

Cheers,

Will be good to see you guys coming over from Canada. It's been a while now.
Sue and I will drop by Friday night, and we will be there for the Saturday run.
Eric.
