Looking for information on our upcoming events? This is the place. Several events are usually listed here at any one time so please scroll to the bottom of the list.
We hold 2 rallies a year — June and August (both in Alberta). We also hold 4 lunches in Alberta on the second Wednesday of May, July, September and October.
Not a member of Escapees or Chapter 44? No problem! We’re happy to welcome non-members to our events — it’s a great way to meet people with similar interests. You’re under no obligation to join Escapees or Chapter 44. Come check us out and join the fun.
If you’d like to attend one of our events, please contact our Event Registrar. While most events are open, occasionally pre-registration is required because of space restrictions.
