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 Warren Hiebert (email address & phone are 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.

However we had to cancel our 2020 Show ‘N Shine due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We hope to see you in 2021

We will hold a General Meeting on Thursday September 24th at 7:00 pm at the Golf Club. Those wishing to eat dinner should arrive at 6:00pm

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to COVID restrictions and protocols, the Golf Club will only allow 38 people. So if you are planning to attend this meeting we require that you RSVP your intentions to our new President, Wayne Knibbs at email president@gabriolacruisersautoclub.ca.

It is recommended that you wear a mask.

As well as the business portion of the meeting we will conduct our annual Brown Bag Auction. Bring something old or new, valued at less than $20.00, disguised inside a brown bag or box. It can be auto related or not, perhaps labelled “for a man” or “for a woman” or “both.” It could be something(s) you have sitting around your house/shop, remember the old phrase “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure.” Items will then be auctioned off to the high bidder, proceeds to the Club. It’s a lot of fun.
