Parks Canada Discovery Pass 2017

Post by r90sLifer on Wed Dec 07, 2016 7:45 pm

Here's an offer that might come in handy. And it's free.
Order Parks Cdn Discovery Pass
Maybe for 2017 we don't have to sneak around the checkpoints at the park entrances. LOL

Thanks Amedee, ordered mine last evening.

I was thinking (often trouble - I know), the Parks Canada Site shows that there are quite a few interesting places in Nova Scotia to visit. Perhaps we should consider putting together a list of some of these as possible inclusions for our 2017 ride schedule.

Not suggesting Sable Island or any of the other islands, but there are a number where it might be nice to visit, especially on Canada 150th birthday year. There are 5-6 in the Valley for instance and perhaps a few of them might be of interest to members. Just a thought to discuss later.

Sounds like the 2017 BMWONS Challenge is on - a photo of your bike in front of each National Park - a million bonus pints (err points) for the Sable Island National Park Reserve.

I've seen motorcycles with surfboards on the side, in the BMWONS photos of member events and Rallies, there's a photo of a BMW with a side-car and a kayak on top of the side-car, but for the life of me, I can't think of what would make one seaworthy enough to make it all the way to Sable Island. ;-)

Passes available locally in Halifax

For anyone wanting a Parks Canada pass and didn't order one yet; or if you did order one and you want another one; Mountain Equipment Coop is an authorized distributor of the passes.
You don't have to be a member of MEC to get one there.
Just go to the one of cashiers and ask for one or more passes.
I did and it is a painless task. Now I have one for the bike.
