    The Victoria MG Club annual roster of activities includes the following examples:

Classic Car Field Meet ... the major club event of the year takes place in July and includes a show and shine (currently at Beaver Lake).

Driver Training ... an annual two day Spring Event in which driving skills and techniques are developed by means of a seminar and practice (on a driving course) of the lessons learned.

Grand Tours ... the Portland All British Field Meet attracts a significant group of motoring enthusiasts almost every year. Another event, the Laguna Seca trip to California, generates considerable interest and participation.

Ice Cream Runs ... during the summer months, on the Wednesday following the monthly meeting, a run, designed by a volunteer club member, takes place with an appropriate destination (local dispenser of ice cream).

Slaloms ... conducted at Western Speedway. This is a timed event in which only one car is allowed on the track during a 'run'. Three of the slaloms are followed by a barbecue at a member's home. The major slalom event of the year is the All British Slalom which takes place in June and is very popular with a the membership and invited guests.

Soupcon Run ... a tour of the countryside followed by lunch with a tasty collection of different soups with buns, cheese and dessert make this event a taste sensation!!

Annual Christmas Party Dinner ... non-perishable donations for the Food Bank will be accepted at the event.

New Year's Day Burn ... organized by a member to celebrate the new year with our British Cars (top down - weather permitting).

Valentines' Day Run ... organized by various club members, this event involves a tour over some of the more interesting roads of southern Vancouver Island, followed by 'treats'.
