          2 questions.......

          Will we be allowed to stay on site in the motorhome like we did at CAC last year?

          Is there parking available at the banquet site for motorhome/truck and trailer?

          Thanks,

          Brian

            It's a bit tight Brian in the Executive parking lot - but the mall parking lot just north should have room, if not any of the other strip malls close by. (Sears parking lot should be empty on a Sunday night just across from the Skytrain Station) Worst case you park it on a residential street and take the PDM Shuttle to the banquet

              That's sounds like a "no, you are not allowed to stay on site" answer to me. Can you confirm for my feeble exhaust-huffing brain?

                I think the answer was only about parking for the banquet, since the banquet site is a long way from Pitt Meadows.

                  Hi Philip,

                  There is no official arrive & drive program for this event. However, to facilitate the arrangement of co-drives amongst KSC participants, we've created a dedicated thread for those interested in co-driving to post their info.

                  Cheers,

                    Brian and Greg,

                    Don has nicely summed up the various parking options available at the banquet facility.

                    Regarding overnight stays at the driving centre, we are following up on our inquiry to the airport on this topic. We will post news as soon as we hear back from them (likely in the next week or two).

                      I sure hope we can stay on site, it really effects our ability to attend the event

                          Is the Executive hotel listed in accomodations the same place the banquet will be held and the same place the CAC Banquet was held last year?

                          Thanks,
