Our SSRs will be on the grass at Rotary Park Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Security will be on site, eliminating the logistics of parking at the hotel.

Registrations for the 2019 Beach Cruise was 850 cars, which was a sellout. Registration was shut down prior to the show.

The setting is spectacular. The car show is staged from the Lakeside Resort Hotel (The long pier at the center of the photo) all the way to the SS Sicamous, at the far right, just before the river channel.

SSR parking will be in the park area to the right of the hotel on the photo below. We'll be just off the beach, on grass, across from Gyro Park, the outdoor entertainment area and concessions.

Hotels

Lakeside Resort

The Lakeside Resort Hotel is a luxury hotel on the Beach. It has the Barking Parrot pub, the Bufflehead Pasta and Tapas Bar, a patio eating area, and the Hooded Merganser Restaurant built over the water.

If you check the photo of the hotel on the link below, the park area is just over top of the Hooded Merganser restaurant on the right, past the giant tree.


The Lakeside is very convenient, at the center of the Beach Cruise, next to Rotary Park.

I have booked 30 rooms, available from Thursday through Sunday.

Parkside - 235 double occupancy - Approximately $175 US
Beachside - 245 double occupancy
Lakeside - 255 double occupancy

Some upgrades to executive suites may be available. Please request when booking your room.

April 25 deadline to book rooms. 48 hour cancellation with no penalty.

Book by calling their toll-free number 1-800-663-9400. Booking is under SSR Fanatic.


Alternative Accomodations. These are a 10 - 15 minute walk or a short drive away.

Ramada Penticton Hotel



Penticton Coast Hotel (formerly Travelodge)


Days Inn & Conference Centre

Days Inn and Conference Centre Penticton

Sandman Hotel


There are a lot of other motels/hotels available, some at lower cost. The motels along Lakeshore Drive are convenient, but many are heavily booked already, so early booking is recommended.

We are now at 20 SSRs for the 2020 Beach Cruise

We have added Toni from Sherwood Park, Alberta, David and Fran from St Albert, Alberta and Dwight (Blue Streak) from Pasadena.

I will update the original posts as soon as I get my editing privileges back. They were supposed to be ongoing, but once again, the gremlins on the new platform have taken over.

Gordy.

We are considering going again this year. IDK yet. Is it too early to head farther north afterwards, weather wise?

I don't see Jim and Carol from Sylvan Lake on the list......
I will add their names to the "maybe" group. Carol said she would mail in a registration, but I haven't seen it yet.

Is 240 Gordy coming?

I'm waiting for an update on editing. I found the edit function hiding under the 3 dots at the top of the post, but now it's telling me I can't edit more than 7 posts in 10 days. This is where I would insert a "banghead" if it existed.

All main highways are fine much earlier than June. We annually have a large group coming from Alberta, either on the Yellowhead through Jasper (Highway 16) or through Calgary and Banff on Highway 1. You would have a great drive to Banff or Jasper, and a beautiful cruise on the Icefield highway between the two.

I think Dwight ran into some rough roads some years ago when he was experimenting with an off-highway cruise. He could fill you in on that.

In addition to Dwight (Bluestreak), we are now welcoming Dennis and Pam (TruckNRod) and Dennis and Sue (Hollister SSR)

Glad the California team is represented. We are not going to make this year due to someone convincing me to go to work for them.

Dave the north bound route to Jasper and down the ice highway to Banff then on to Calgary was what I attempted. Make sure you get the GPS programmed correctly. I made a bad turn near Jasper and ended up on a Logging HIGHWAY (gravel, two lane, Speed limit 75km/hr) with logging trucks running the other way spewing rocks. Not fun but now way out. I cannot speak for the Ice Highway since I did not get to drive it.

I got it three years ago I guess. We were thinking make this the end of the trip.

I heard some of the people from the great white north had trouble in October thought.

I think that was an early warning of the coming of winter, not the winter hanging on through August and September.(y)
