Club History

In the spring of 2015 some Gabriola Island auto enthusiasts organized a car show which was held in August. This was a successful event and in the following months the creation of a club was discussed. A first meeting was held in May, 2016, attendance was around 25 people and it was decided to form a club. Organization was decided to be informal, Randy Phillips volunteered to be the president and a number of others volunteered to be Directors.

Residents who are enthusiasts about all multi-wheeled and 2-wheeled motor vehicles, regardless of the age of vehicles or members are welcome to join.

The club name was chosen after suggestions were solicited from members and reviewed at a meeting.

Gabriolans (or others) can join the club by downloading and printing the online application form and paying the annual $25.00 per couple membership fee at a general meeting or to Kent Moen at Wildrose Nursery, or at Gabriola Automotive or to Warren Hiebert (email address is below). Members paying the annual fee are also entitled to enter one or more vehicles for free at the Club’s August car show.

Our 5th Annual Show ‘N Shine was held on Sunday August 11th, 2019 and was a huge success. Look for the link above to see the photos from this event.

The next general meeting is on Thursday, November 28th. It will be held at Wayne Knibbs/Verenia Saxon’s home at 6 PM. It will be similar to last years event in that it will be a meeting/party and all members are invited to attend. It will be a pot luck supper and members are urged to bring a food tray and a donation for the food bank.
Entertainment will be our popular brown bag auction in which members are urged to wrap a gift in plain brown paper after which the auctioneer will auction it to the highest bidder. Make it an inexpensive fun gift.

Members should contact Wayne or Verenia ASAP to confirm their attendance.

See you all there for a fun evening.
