The Ocean Idlers Car Club is anything but idle.
Although they’ve cancelled this year’s Blast from the Past, held annually at the Coombs Fairgrounds, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club continues to find time to cruise around the city whenever they can.
The Parksville club holds weekly morning coffee every Wednesday at the Log Cabin General Store located near the entrance to Rathrevor Provincial Park.
It’s hard to miss them as their amazing vehicles of varying makes and models, painted in vivid colours are quite noticeable if drive along Highway 19A every Wednesday morning.
Most of them said they simply enjoy the camaraderie and being outdoors with their classic rides.
The club aims to stage their Blast from the Past again in 2021. Last year, the club raised funds from the event and recently donated $1,000 to the Oceanside Health Centre in Parksville to help the centres’ medical team deliver better patient care.
