The annual Run of the Ogopogo is held in Vernon, BC, Canada. Vernon is situated midway between Vancouver, Seattle, and Calgary, in BC's Okanagan region, making it easily accessible from Western Canada and the PacNW.
We will once again return to our own, private chalet on Silverstar mountain. Lots of space, and an absolutely incredible location. The chalet features 2 kitchens, 8 bathrooms, a hot tub, 2 BBQ's, lots of paved parking, 4 living rooms, and sleeps 30+ with more than enough beds and rooms to take care of everyone. Couples are welcome. It is situated at the top of an awesome twisty drive up to the Silver Star ski hill. It is very quiet, with amazing panorama views from the property. Free Wifi is available.
It's pretty rare you'd have your own private autocross event. Exclusive for Ogopogo attendees, autocross is open to individuals of all abilities. Most of us our new to it, so this is a great way to give racing a try in a completely safe and no pressure environment. We do give out some prizes for the fastest cars though, just to keep things interesting.
Your car will need to pass a basic tech inspection to ensure it is safe to race. You will also need a SNELL 2005 or newer helmet, although loaner helmets are available.
All in all it is great fun. Give it a try!
Pricing & Payment Info
Every year, figuring out the total cost is always tricky until we know how many people are going. So this year, we will use a deposit format as follows:
$100 deposit (non-refundable) per person. This will guarantee you a spot until 30 days before (July 4). At that point, we'll take our number count and divide by the total cost work out the final per person cost.
Room selection will be done on a first pay first choice basis. At the time of your deposit, you will also need to indicate: # of T-shirts and sizes, autocross yes/no, # of hats and sizes (S/M or L/XL), and any food allergies/considerations for the (included) BBQ.
If you pay after July 4: You will pay that total that is calculated on July 4, however, your money will be worked in to a discount for all of the early payers. Basically, you will PAY MORE if you pay late. So book early!
To give you an idea of cost: In the past, it has worked out to approx. $160 for accommodation & BBQ, $20 per T-shirt, $40 for autocross, and $30 for a hat. These can be higher or lower depending on how many people register.
