Tues. March 12th

Mike Powley Collectibles Night

The Club meeting in March sees the return of the Collectibles Night. In recognition of a long standing Club member who passed away some years ago, this has been retitled "The Mike Powley Collectibles Night”.
Members are invited to bring for display any items that they collect. These do not necessarily have to be car related. The displays are then judged by the members present, and prizes are awarded. So if you collect for example Dinky toys, key rings, lighters, watches, jewelry, snuff boxes, or single socks from the dryer, this is the night for you to show off your collection.
To book a table for your display, call or text Peter Tilbury on 604.889.5067, and will be allocated a show number. All judging is done by secret ballot. You have ample time to think what you would like to display.

March 19-24

Club Display at the International Auto Show, Vancouver Convention Centre

In recognition of the CCMGC/CXKJR 50th Anniversary year, the VIAS will have four Club members' cars on display at the show.
A Jaguar E Type, a Jaguar XJS, an MGA roadster and an MGB GT will be on the Club stand at the show. There will be information posters giving details of the cars, and a poster that provides some history of the Club. More info at the February member meeting.

Sun. April 14th
