August 5th Update

Only two weeks remaining !!! For those of you that have not contacted me about payment please do so as soon as possible. The deadline is going to be August 11th to have your registration in and to have arranged payment with me. If your interested in the event, get the registration form filled out please or contact me directly for information.

The wife and I rode about 85% of the route on Friday. For those of you that attended the event last year and loved the route, well this year I have outdone myself. I have probably removed about another 60% of the highway driving. Including the Malahat drive we touch the highway all of 30 minutes and that takes us up as far as CheckPoint #6. That said, I want everyone to know that the route I have chosen is not a highway and in most cases the speed limits are between 50 - 80 Kms. This is a scenic route. There is ample opportunity to open the car up on the highway to Mt Washington where the speed limits get to 110 and we do touch the highways where you can 'stretch your legs', however if you want to be pushing it I suggest you find other drivers of a similar mind, and take a different route. I don't recommend speeding as the island is really under a speed enforcement kick, so I wouldn't recommend speeding at all, but if your so incline, stay on the highways.

Lastly, please help me and my stress level..., if you have registered and have not contacted me to arrange payment, do so now. It sure is nice not to have to worry about that.

August 10th Update

This is the second last update. Last update will be next Friday, they day before the event. There is only ONE WEEK left...,

Cut Off for registration is Saturday August 11th, as I have to have my numbers in by Sunday. Saturday the 11th is also the cut off for arranging payment. If I have not been contacted by you and you are on the bottom of the registration list or you have not yet registered, you will not be able to participate, so at the very least contact me and let me know what is up. Participation is key so we can work something out. Don't worry if you can't make it, stuff happens and it is better for me to know so I stop bugging you...,

Find below a small video about the Charity that you are helping here. This is a short video about Camp Shawnigan and the wonderful things that they do thier for the kids. Below is a small snipet froma note I received thanking all of us for our work:

==============================
That’s awesome, Dave. Thank you so much. We can definitely request that the money go directly to campership. It’s costs us approximately $2400 to send a kid to camp for a week so depending on how much you raise this year, you will send that many children to Camp Shawnigan. We cannot give you specific names of the kids that you have sent to camp but we can ensure that the money does go directly for that. I’m not sure if you’ve visited Camp Shawnigan so I’ve attached a video for you and your friends to watch if you like. It paints a pretty good picture of what camp is like.


Thank you so much for your generosity again this year. When you bring in the cheque, we would love to sit down with you for a few minutes and just hear more details of how the Poker Run actually works. We are wondering if we could help in any way to add to your event and make it even bigger and better next year. Not sure if that interests you at all but regardless, we’d love to hear more about it.

We so appreciate your group again helping us to give children abilities. Our thanks,

Verna
BC Lions Society

Camp Shawnigan

Spotted some of you guys driving past the Shell gas station in Qualicum yesterday. I wish I was in my car, but instead all I could do is admire the great cars going by.

Some of the cars I saw -

Red Integra with roofrack
White S14
NSX (dark)
quite a few s2k's
dark blue Skyline with white wheels
Infinities
Black Del Sol on XXR?
and various others.

Well another Poker Run is in the books. This years event was a great success. I think everyone had a good time as I know I did. I want to thank all the Sponsors and Participants for the event as well as Mt Washington for providing an excellent venue.

My goal this year was $5,000.00 and we came in just slightly under that. I will be topping up the amount myself bringing it up to the $5,000.00. The difference is less than $100.00, so in that respect the event was indeed a success.

Below are the results from the event. I have not yet provided a cheque to the BC Lions Society for Camp Shawnigan but will within the next few weeks so I can ensure all the activity in the chequing account goes through.

Thanks again to EVERYONE that helped out and participated, without you we couldn't do this and make a difference in a child's life!

Yeah we just barely made it to the ferry, as they were starting to load vehicles. Been telling some friends about it and they all seem like they'd be interested in next year. I'm already excited for next year, can't wait!!!

I provided Camp Shawnigan with a cheque for $5,000.00 less the fees for next years reservations for the Poker run at Mt Washington, which come to $500.00. Up until now I have been putting this up out of pocket and paying myself back and the end of the event. This year I am holding back the $500.00 so the event is self sufficient. Mt Washington provides us with bar staff and catering staff as well as the hall rental and a downpayment for food for only $500.00. Normally the hall rental itself is over $1,000.00 so they do good by us.

At any rate find below a picture of me giving the check over to Verna Write, special events co-ordinator for Camp Shawnigan and the British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities. Verna has also provided some comment for us. Basically GOOD WORK to all of us! A big thanks from me and from the Lions Society and especially from the kids that will benefit from our work/fun. />

From Verna
Each year we at the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities hold several fundraising events to support the programs and services needed by children with disabilities on Vancouver Island. In addition to our special events, we also have several local groups of people who hold their own fundraisers and chose us as the beneficiaries of their efforts. We are so pleased and honored that Dave Donovan continues to chose us as his Charity of choice and appreciate all the hard work that goes into planning and executing his annual Vancouver Island Poker Run.

We’ve had a good look at Dave’s Vancouver Island Poker Run website and now have an idea of what a Poker Run actually is. It sounds like a lot of people come together to have some fun and to raise money to support a great cause. The cars involved look amazing and I’m sure attract a good deal of attention as they travel up the island. All the proceeds of the Poker Run will go to support Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan where kids with disabilities can spend one week during the summer just being kids. There is no cost to their families and we’ve been told numerous times that they look forward to camp more than Christmas. It is truly a magical place and through the hard work and generosity of people like you, we can keep enriching the lives of these special children.

Thank you so very much for helping us give kids abilities.



All our best,
