Boler 50th Anniversary Caravan – Escapes Welcome

A good number of you know that 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the Boler trailer.

To celebrate this event, imagine caravans of moulded fibreglass trailers traveling from each coast of Canada to meet in Winnipeg, Manitoba where the Boler was first produced. We know that interest is very high from the fibreglass community, the Escape community included. The venue in Winnipeg is booked for August 15-21 2018. We have started to receive interest and offerings from sponsors for the event and we are working on finding that one special primary sponsor.

It is now time to get a little help from the FGRV Community. To get a better idea of how many are interested in attending the event and where everyone is coming from I have set up a simple pre-registration form on my website. We will use the information you provide to estimate the numbers attending, to help plan the route, to provide direct email updates and information on the event (we promise not to spam you). As a bonus for signing up we will provide you with access to a Kal Tire VIP Program which offers special pricing on products and services they offer at their stores across Canada.
Please sign up today at Boler 50th Anniversary Pre-Registration

The Challenge is on, come on and step up Escape owners.
We are receiving very good response from owners of Bolers, Trillium, Ventura, Big Foot, Triple E, even a Biggar from all over Canada and the USA including a fantastic mixture of moulded makes and models BUT ... At these early stages not many Escape Trailers have registered, in fact there are more Casitas registered

Come on Escape owners, pre-registering just gives us an idea of how many are interested and where you would be starting from, join in on this historic event.
Pre-Register here, it just takes a moment

Hi Ian
I just signed up. We made St Malo this year and had a lot of fun, especially seeing all the vintage bolers ( about 40). We hope to go back to Manitoba soon. It's only a 2 day trip for us.

We're in! Perfect timing since we don't get our 5.0TA until next October.

Videos and pictures here of Bolerama 2016 held near Quebec City in mid-September. Close to 170 rigs...at least one Escape!

That could be the start of an armada headed towards Winnipeg!

Ian, I registered when you first announced it, but am not on the map. I don't want to just register again and screw things up, unless you think I should.

On the map the markers overlap so yours is near the bottom of the pile LOL
If you look on the participants list which is sorted by city you will find you registration there

This sounds like a great opportunity to see some great Fiberglass trailers! We enjoyed seeing all the Bolers and other small eggs when we went to the Niagara Rally last September! Looking forward to this one. We just pre-registered!

I hope lots of you can make our event, currently we have 584 trailers pre-registered and the numbers are growing daily

Activities and events will be planned at the Red River Exhibition Park from August 15-19, 2018 *(I have the Exhibition grounds booked for a few extra day so you can arrive a little early or leave slightly later if you prefer, Aug 14-21)

This will not be a typical fibreglass event, re: not a campground, the parking lots and grounds will be laid out so everyone has space for their tow vehicle, trailer with room beside their unit for "living". Look at this as an event where you can bring your sleeping unit. We will be comfortable, many activities will take place on the grounds themselves including entertainment, displays, food trucks & vendors, beer garden, and much more. Full details and agenda will be published in the coming months. ....and no there will not be a pot luck dinner, but we are planning on providing a dinner

We have good washroom facilities on the grounds and we will be bringing in additional portable facilities, potable water, and lighting to the trailer areas. Power will have some limits, we are working on getting power to as many sites as we can, we will also have an area where generators can be used as well as a "no generator" section. The logistics for this event are huge and huge been a primary focus.

I am travelling to Winnipeg next week to work with Rick Mooyman, our co-host, and the Red River Ex to work on the event. A registration website will be launched soon where you can make your reservations and book sites.

Currently the main webpage for the event is Boler 50th Anniversary 1968-2018 – Boler 50th Anniversary 1968-2018 or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/888471907908283/

Regular updates will start soon as we are going into the detailed planning of the event
