General Land Rover discussions / Old copies of Prairie Rover newsletters
« Last post by Dkenner on February 26, 2021, 10:03:07 PM »
Good day,

I am trying to gather up copies of the Prairie Rover Newsletter. It was the club newsletter through the Nineties, and while I recall seeing quite a few issues, I only have two on file. What I am trying to do is gather up scanned copies to put them up on the, so other people would be able to benefit from the stories ans knowledge that would lay within the pages.

If anyone has any copies, could you scan them and send them to me at

We are actually trying to find back newsletters of all of the Canadian clubs. Two clubs have extensive archives available. RoverLanders of BC, and Ottawa Valley Land Rovers. The rest are very spotty, though we have found many from ALROC, the Association of Land-Rover Owners of Canada (1974-1996)

Thank you,

Dixon Kenner

So, I just renewed the domain for another year.  I don't think we've had almost any activity this year - I assume most has moved to fb groups, reddit, or elsewhere.  So I think it's time to shut this down.
Any opinions to the contrary, enter them here.  This is the 1yr notice.

I know there's very little traffic here lately, but the host reached out and wanted to change to a different server.  There were some unintended consequences of that, so over the last day you might have seen a bit of a broken site.
That should all be fixed, now, as far as I'm aware.
Let me know via here or gmail if you notice anything that doesn't work.
We should try to get this club back on the rails if we can.  Don't know how many of us are still around.  Since the PPCLI took off to Shilo, I think the core of our group left the city.  There is an all British Show and Shine every year at The Forks, and they were very pleased when I took my 1974 88" for the past two years and also at the Highland Games in E.Selkirk to the Manitoba Sports Car Club.  They told me they had never had a Land Rover at The Forks till I took mine.  I won a plaque at the Steinback Show and Shine as the most unique vehicle there last year.  There is a fellow just south of me between Selkirk and Lockport with Defenders that is planning on building a safari business taking people on Manitoba safari trips.  I am going to show him the sand hills on the North Star Trail sometime and that will be the main area.  They can have a lot of fun in there.  A drone trip over the area will give them some good idea of what trails are still open and how to get to the top of the fire lookout.  Anyway, my vehicle continues to get stuff to make it an emergency vehicle for ham radio.  I talked to Scotland and Ireland with my radio from E. Selkirk during the games and they loved that connection back to the old country.

Hi Dave
I might be on the look out for a fuel filler (mine got damaged at the galvanisers) and a square type of front apron, if you know of any of these available, please let me know

Wraps definitely seems like the way to go, nowadays, for that sort of thing.  Moreso than paint/airbrushing.

I decided to mount the crests on my Safari Vest.  It makes a great Show and Shine Jacket for my Land Rover events.

For those who can't afford a paint job for their old Land Rovers, maybe you would like my solution.  I had a sign company that wraps vehicles make me two decals with Zebra patterns and the word Land Rover on them.  They fit my delux hood great.
