Upcoming Club Events
The Volvo Club of BC hosts a number of annual events. In mid June, members participate in a Spring weekend drive through some destination through southern BC. A large contingent on Vancouver Island hosts several drive or display events through the summer months. The Cate's Park Picnic is our annual end-of-the-summer event and, thanks to our organizing committee, normally features warm sunny weather. Our annual club technical session is normally held each fall. Technical topics vary, but are always interesting and informative. Details about previous technical sessions can be found on our technical index page.
