Added Kyle and Fran (Big Guy) from Clearwater, BC and Robert (Nape) from Redmond, WA to our group.
Just renewed the wife's pasport and it only took about three weeks from the time we sent the old one in to getting the new one.Well heck Flassh! I'd be tempted to make the trip to meet you and Cash and a few others I've never met personally but I need to get a passport! I'll likely be done working about that time as I'm officially retired at age 63 on July 6th. Maybe I can get one by then but I hear it takes quite awhile! I'll work on it and let you know! That will be a heck of a road trip from Ohio! 😉
Do it Larry. I have been twice and loved it. @SSReplay made the trek from IL last year as part of a great road trip.Well heck Flassh!

Larry, It would be great to see you make the trip. Some great cruising and exploring to be done. If you can, leave some extra time to venture through the Rockies to Banff or Jasper, or both.Well heck Flassh!

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.
