One card will be drawn at the beginning and end of the run, as well as at three stops along the way. There will be a prize awarded for best hand. We will meet at 9:30 A.M. with the run starting at 10:00 A.M. Make sure you gas up before the run.

Sun. June 18 Father's Day Picnic 11am-5pm
Burnaby Central Railway
Confederation Park
120 North Willingdon Ave, Burnaby
One of the club’s most popular events is at Confederation Park Miniature Railway, located a few blocks north of Hastings in Burnaby. There are over two miles of track on two main routes, with steam and diesel locomotives hauling trains through two tunnels and over several bridges. 1/8 full size, the trains carry up to 30 passengers. What to bring? Your favourite car, picnic food, and folding chairs if you have room. There’ll be dedicated parking by the entrance for MGs and Jags, with parking for non-marque sports cars available on the street and in the adjacent lots. The invitation includes the members’ extended families e.g. grandparents and grandchildren. Important note: Sometimes parents get upset when they bring the whole family and we are unable to carry their infants. Infants unable to sit on the train seats and support themselves must be in a hands-free ‘snuggly’ type carrier worn by an adult. The railway operates from 11 am to 5 pm. In the past most club members (and their families) were on site between 12:30 and 4:00 pm. How much? No charge. The club has arranged for unlimited rides on the trains and a concession sells hot dogs, ice cream, hot & cold drinks.
