The Coasters Car Club 23nd annual Sleepy Hollow Rod Run and Show ‘n’ Shine is scheduled for Aug. 10 to 12. The 30 km Rod Run cruise through Redrooffs Road starts in Sechelt at 6:15 p.m. on Friday, led by the local RCMP with 450+ classic cars winding their way through the 3,000 to 4,000 spectators who line the highway from Sechelt to the Halfmoon Bay Fire Hall. Participants are always amazed at the warm welcome and enthusiasm by the cheering crowds that gather along the roadway. Spectators make signs, dress in costumes and place couches and lawn chairs in their driveways. Please make the drivers welcome in our neighbourhood.

Between July 21 and 31 there have been serious pellet gun incidents reported to the police. A local owner’s van has been shot at and hit on two separate occasions while travelling on Redrooffs Road between 8600 and 8700 blocks, causing serious damage and stress to the driver.
On another occasion a shot ricocheted off a tree. Pedestrian safety is also a concern. It appears that the activity originated from the wooded area west of the 8600 block Redrooffs Road.
Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to police (as this is an open investigation). Refer to file #18-5224.
