CRESCENT BEACH INVITATIONAL
The organizing committee and the primary sponsor, ' Pelling Insurance', are pleased to announce that on Labour Day Saturday, September 1, 2012, the second annual Crescent Beach Invitational will be held on the grassy lawn of spectacular Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach, British Columbia. Continuing in the spirit of the former Steamworks Concours, the 2012 event will mark the 10th year that we have brought together a Labour Day long weekend gathering of Collector Automobiles and Motorcycles.
We are now actively sourcing for this year's concours and accepting nominations of exceptional automobiles and motorcycles. New 2012 classes, entry forms and information about the event itself can be found at:
Applications for consideration will be accepted up to July 1st. From these applications the committee will select up to 80 outstanding entrants. This year, as in the past, entrants will come from all over the west coast of Canada and the United States, cover a broad span of makes and years and include vehicles that are often rare and seldom seen by the public.
The Concours will be officially open from 10 am until 3 pm. There is no admission charge for entrants or the public, although donations to Children's Hospital at the event will be appreciated.
Blackie Spit is a well-known wildlife conservation area, which makes it unique as a venue. The 'by the ocean' setting' is within walking-distance to Crescent Beach restaurants and businesses and the lovely Dunsmuir Community Gardens. Once again we will be using the Ocean Promenade Hotel in White Rock as our entrant hotel and Beecher Place for our entrant reception.
We welcome local businesses as sponsors and would be pleased to talk to them about ways they can get involved in the event. For more information, please contact Colin or Laurel Gurnsey at 604-980-7429 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The photos below show the variety and quality of motorcycles and vehicles at last year's event.
The video below features Colin Gurnsey, one of the key organizers for the Crescent Beach Invitational talking about how the meet came to be at Blackie Spit and the variety of cars and motorcycles on display. Colin is followed by Brad Pelling, the key sponsor for the event and finally, Robin Hine, one of the participants and owner of a beautiful 1926 Bentley talks about the car and how he drove it across Canada.
