Welcome to the Vernon Placer Miners Club!


Because planning the BC Open takes long term organization and meetings many months before the event, due to ongoing Covid restrictions, we were not able to know for sure if we could hold the 2022 event at the time we normally start organizing for it the year before. We have just now had our first in person meeting for May 2022, and unfortunately there is just no time to get everything together in time to have an event this year. We are looking forward to 2023 to finally get back to the BC Open again! Keep those fingers crossed!


Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month except Jan., July, August, and September. The meetings are held at 7PM at the Peace Lutheran Church.
(1204 – 30th Ave, Vernon, BC)
