The Victoria Chapter of the VCCC hosted the

11th Annual Island Challenge

September 10, 11, 12, 2010

23 vintage cars were registered for the 11th Island Challenge in Victoria ~ from Victoria and Sidney, and as far away as Castlegar.  The Comfort Inn & Suites was the host hotel and was centrally located for the various activities planned for this weekend.

Registration took place on Friday afternoon and after dinner on their own, the participants gathered for a Meet & Greet in the Breakfast Room of the hotel.

On Saturday, after breakfast and drivers' meeting, the tour left the hotel for a 36 mile drive to Sooke.  The route meandered through the West Burnside area; out around Prospect Lake; up and around Bear Mountain; through Langford and around Glen Lake; and then out to Sooke.  The destination was the Sooke Region Museum, where participants were divided into two groups ..... one group ate lunch while the other had a guided tour of the museum, lighthouse, etc.  And then, these two groups traded places.

The return route toured around Sooke and through Metchosin, back to the hotel.  After a rest, participants were on their way again, to the Colwood Golf Club for dinner.  The Carter Family from Duncan provided the evening's entertainment.
On Sunday, participants were invited to join the VCCC Victoria Chapter at its Annual Corn Roast held at Heritage Acres on Lochside Drive, and several folks were seen there, enjoying the hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob.

Thanks to Co-Chairs, Pete & Terry Seward and Paul & Liz Taylor, and their wonderful committee, for putting on another outstanding Island Challenge.
