This year’s Rod Run will start and end at the Island GM used car lot (6300 Trans-Canada Highway, Duncan). We invite participants to arrive around 6 pm, and the cruise will head out at 6:30 pm sharp(ish). The cruise duration is about one hour. There is no need to register for the Rod Run, just come on down with your wheels and join in the fun!
There will be a DJ on-site providing music for our listening pleasure from about 5:30 onwards until the end of the evening. A BBQ by donation will be served after the Rod Run, starting about 7:30. The food is supplied thanks to Country Grocer.
In person Pre-Registration will be available before and after the Rod Run. Save $5 by pre-registering for $20 instead of paying $25 at the gate Sunday morning.
– Watch for pedestrians and other cars in the parking lot.
