For those that have registered, thank you very much. For those that have not, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of registering as soon as possible if you intend to participate in this event. Why? With only just over 150 days until we kick off, we need to plan for tour consumables, create an itinerary based upon participation levels AND hotels will only continue to hold group block space if reservations are active. These blocks are only available to registered tour participants.
If you haven’t registered yet but are planning to in the very near future, please let us know so that we can track numbers and plan for supplies, venues/events, etc.. Once again, this is extremely important to the organization of the event – critical in fact.
About The Lethbridge Stop
If you’ve looked at the itinerary, you’ll know that we are planning on gathering in Lethbridge Alberta to start our trek. Coincidentally, that weekend is the Streetwheelers “Street Machine” weekend. You can check out their weekend activities HERE. Note that, if can arrive in town on Friday, July 9, they have their parade-style cruise on 3rd. Ave. We also look forward to hooking up with The Le Barons Car Club of Lethbridge while in Lethbridge.
Amongst other things, we will likely have a group dinner on Saturday July 10 and are planning for a rod run to Waterton Lakes National Park on Sunday July 11.
Other Tour Stops
Another update will follow with information about our stops in Calgary, Kamloops and Langley and Victoria.
About Friday July 16 on Vancouver Island
I would like to hear from you about this day so read on. You might be aware that Northwest Deuce Days has a cruise to Courtenay BC planned for this day. You may also be aware that this event has been sold out for some time.
So, if you are planning on joining The Canadian Hot Rod Tour Points West group to Victoria, I would like to know if you are interested in a separate Friday rod run activity for Tour participants.
About BC Ferries
We have been keeping an eye on availability of schedules and reservations for July and can now report that BC Ferries are accepting reservations.

We will be there until Monday morning (July 19) and have reserved passage on the 10:00 AM sailing from Swartz Bay back to Tsawwassen. You can access the BC Ferries site and make reservations HERE.
