2020 Presidents' Run to Osoyoos
September 18 - 20
For this year's Presidents' Run we are planning to make our way to Osoyoos in the Okanagan. Each year the CXKJR and CCMGC presidents choose a location, plan a weekend drive and activities, and invite members to join them. Past Presidents' Runs have in most cases been in BC, while a few have gone to the US. Osoyoos has been a favourite, having been the Run destination four times.
Tentative Weekend Plan
The group leaving from the Burnaby Lake Clubhouse will proceed along Hwy 1, over to Hwy 7 to travel along the north side of the Fraser to Hope. Other participants will join the group for lunch at the Blue Moose Coffee House in Hope. We will then go along Hwy 3 through Princeton (possible fuel & refreshments stop) and Keremeos to Osoyoos.
Friday evening dinner will be informal, with a list of restaurants provided for Run participants to choose from.
You are free to plan your own activities. Here are some suggestions. Travelling groups may be organized for those who want to attend the same activities. Note that some opportunities may change depending on COVID-19 health restrictions.
- Area 27 Motorsports Park/Kartplex Karting Centre
- Okanagan Art Gallery
- Osoyoos Art Gallery
- Osoyoos Desert Centre
- Osoyoos Desert Model Railroad
- South Okanagan E-Bike Safaris
A group dinner will be organized for Saturday evening.
We will travel north on Hwy 97 through Penticton and along Okanagan Lake to turn west onto Hwy 97C before Kelowna, then onto Hwy 5A south to Princeton. We will retrace our path along Hwy 3 to Hope and home from there. Some people may decide not to take the loop north on Hwy 97 and go more directly home back on Hwy 3 from Osoyoos.
Our host hotels will be the Coast Osoyoos Beach Hotel and the Holiday Inn and Suites.
