Ocean Idlers car show for a good cause this Saturday in Qualicum Beach

Around 75 fancy vehicles expected at Qualicum Beach Golf Club

The Ocean Idlers fifth annual Cops For Cancer Show ‘n Shine will be held at the Qualicum Beach Golf Club this Saturday.

“The parking lot is pretty well plugged with 75 cars,” said club treasurer Fred Imire of the natural limit they have found in recent years.

He said like previous years they expect a good mix of cars from 1928 right up to more modern times, with the bulk from the 1940s to ’60s including “A cross section of stock cars, classics and all kinds.”

It is an Open Class event with a show-car entry fee of $15. There is no pre-registration, anyone interested is invited to bring their show-worthy vehicle to the golf course at

8 a.m., Aug. 29 for a full day of fun in the sun.

Public entry is by donation with all proceeds going to the Cops For Cancer, Tour De Rock as it always has over the event’s five year history.

The event has raised $8,000 for the good cause over the years, said Idlers secretary Jack Biickert.

Breakfast and lunch are conveniently available at the Thalassa Restaurant on site, and their proceeds will also be donated to Cops For Cancer.

There will be a 50/50 draw and other fun with the car owners, both local and coming from further afield.

Award presentations will start to wrap things up, starting around 2 p.m.
