The Event

The 2011 Disorganization Team is pleased to welcome you to Nelson, BC for the 16th annual WeSTOC. Since the event was held in Kimberley, British Columbia ten years ago (photo on right), the search was on for a site of the next Canadian WeSTOC. The working theme early on was “location, location, location”. It soon became evident that the best concentration of motorcycle roads, with hotel facilities able to accommodate a group of our size, centered around the small, but vibrant city of Nelson, BC.

Nelson’s downtown area is packed with fine restaurants, cafes, coffee houses, local shops, galleries and enjoys a leisurely lifestyle.

Late June was selected as the best time to hold the event, for its light traffic, excellent weather and best hotel rates of the busy summer season.

With so many fantastic roads and things to see and do in the area, the event will run from Monday, June 20 to Thursday, June 23.

Ride through the 270 curves of Highway 3A, rated the #1 Destination Highway in BC, and notice the unique Glass House in Boswell, constructed by a former mortician from discarded embalming fluid bottles. Board the majestic SS Moyie in Kaslo, a National Historic Site, for a tour of the world’s oldest intact passenger sternwheeler. Tour historic Baker Street in downtown Nelson, hop aboard Streetcar # 23 which runs along the lakefront park directly to the Prestige Lakeside Resort or enjoy a stroll on the lakeside walkway. Whatever your plans, be sure to include a soak at one of the soothing mineral hot springs in Ainsworth, Halycon or Nakusp.

Whether you are a first-time attendee or have never missed an event, you will be sure to have a great time as you experience the riding, fellowship and fun of WeSTOC 2011.
