Canuck Posted July 22, 2021 Share Posted July 22, 2021 This meet has been cancelled. The news came out August 20th regarding new protocols for the BC interior due to increasing covid-19 cases. The drag racing event is cancelled, restaurants are closing up and Creston has become one of the highest infection rates in BC so we have no choice but to cancel the meet. Please ensure you cancel your hotel reservations. 17th Annual Western Meet Creston, BC, Canada September 2-5, 2021 The 2021 Western Meet will be in Creston, BC. The town of Creston is located on the Canadian border and offers some great scenery in the area. We expect roughly 15-20 members to attend.
