As late Sept early October can be the best time to visit the Sunshine Coast - ferry fares come back down, and the pace is much slower here, we wanted to invite a gathering of Westfalia, Bus, Weekender, campervan fan campers to the Sunshine Coast for the 1st of hopefully many annual event camp out!

Come to the Okanagan (Kelowna area) on June 21-23 for an Okanagan Solstice weekend campout. We have a few campgrounds in mind, just have to comfirm with management before we can commit to one of the campgrounds. We expect to see upwards to 50 (that's right) 50, Buses and campers show up. See you all soon.

    We had a really good time! The group was so diverse, the collection of vans great, and the weather held for the whole time we were there. We made many new friends and are really looking forward to the next one!

      Hi Glen, I stopped by the crossroads this afternoon, and Cheri mentioned a potluck around 5 saturday.

    An update for those enquiring minds...

    The campout is still a go! I believe more than 40 vans will be there!

    Camping fees are $25/night instead of the initial $20 posted (to cover portapottys due to the successful group size).

    There will be limited (as in one or two) showers on site, so you might want to arrive fresh as fresh as you can.

    Pot Luck is Saturday night starting at 5pm

    There is a good food market in Madeira Park less than 5 minute drive away...an IGA but also the Oak Market has an in store butcher The ferries are definitely busier on the weekends, but if you arrive a good hour before your intended departure, you shouldn't have a problem for this weekend.

    Am guessing the first unofficial gathering will be on the ferry line coming across...

    Should be fun!

    Hi folks. I just want to give you a heads up that if you're going to be attending this meet up you should give Cheri a call prior to heading out there just to make sure it's still happening. She chose to leave the club about a month back and therefore has been off the radar and out of contact. It's likely still a go, but call her to confirm. Have fun and tell her I said hi! :)

    Can't do it I'm afraid, Billy needs an engine rebuild as he won't pass aircare so he's out of action for the winter. Hope you have a great time

    Hi Jason,
    Hope you and family/friend can make it!
    We will start camping on the Thursday night- I just scooped us a deal too instead of $20/night we now have it for $20 first night and $15 per night after between Thursday Sept 27 and Sunday Sept 30 only. The camp site is actually called The Cross Roads Grill in Pender Harbour! Hence Busses @ The Cross Roads :)
    we are being offered a grass field for camping - bring wheel height adjusters! C U There!
