Gary’s Memorial Fall Run Oct 24 2020

Our October run has for many years been known as Gary’s Fall Run as Gary was the trail leader and organizer for many years.  Sadly with Gary’s passing in May 2020, we have renamed this run to ‘Gary’s Memorial Fall Run’.  This year our trail leader was Daryl, with Greg and Norm providing the cooking and campfire for the 9 trucks and occupants who explored the tight and fun trails on Vedder Mtn in Chilliwack.  A beautiful sunny and cold day was a great time!

Announcement: Gary Telford

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of one of our founding members of the club.  Gary Telford passed away peacefully May 9, 2020 after a brief battle with cancer.  Gary’s contributions to the club are unsurpassed.  His care for his fellow club members on countless wheeling trips will always be remembered.  His story telling was legendary, keeping our club meetings delightful and full of laughter.  Gary will be missed by all who knew him.

A memorial run is being planned for Whipsaw on July 17, 2020.  Check MUD for details.  Gary’s annual fall run in October will also be renamed the “Gary Telford Memorial Run“.  More details to follow.

Rest in peace my friend; may your fuel tank be full and the trails never end.

October 21, 2017, Gary’s Annual Fall Run up Cheam/Thursten Loop in Chilliwack BC

Gary Telford’s annual fall run hosted by Coastal Cruisers.

Gary will lead the family friendly, stock friendly, tour up to Mt. Thursten and the lookout in a loop that may take in Foley Lake, time permitting.

Should we hit too much snow then I propose that we do the run in reverse (Chipmunk FSR) and see how close we can get to the look out. Then return the way we come. Or default to Foley Lake if need be 😨. But would have to return back along the river or one of the gravel pits for lunch as there will not be enough room anywhere around Foley lake.

All participants to be fueled up prior to meet up.

Bring cameras, good foot wear, cold weather and rain gear, hat, gloves, touque etc as required.

Three times & locations to join the trail run.

8am a breakfast meet at Chilliwack airport

10am meet up at 2nd parking lot after left turn before Vedder bridge at the Start of Chiliwack Lake Road. Back in preferred for photo op and easy exit if possible. (This is a new trailhead parking lot so there could be issues. If so then we will have to continue further up road for the next large gathering option).

11am meet up at air down location. Turn left at Slesse Monument “Y” intersection. Keep left ish up hill on main road until you hit gravel. (If you cross the bridge on the main road along the river, you missed the Slesse turn off).

Gary and Bill usually cook hotdogs for the group on this run, but please bring your own food/drinks just in case weather is terrible and whatever else might happen!

Welcome to the NEW Coastal Website!

After more than 10 years churning on a server in lower Mongolia, Coastal was rescued by our club member, Garry onto a modern WordPress platform!  Thanks Garry!

Hope you like the new layout and now we’ll be able to make changes and add posts like a Blog format (pretty cool, eh?)
