Running Full Steam Ahead!
Think last year was fun, well the 2016 / 17 ski season has just started. In case you have not looked at your calendar, September 22 is the first day of fall and has passed.  Yes, the leaves are changing colour, the day is shorter, the evening are cooling off faster, and snow already hit Banff in full force!

With all that, THE PACIFIC SKI CLUB has reserved 20 tickets for:
Saturday, October 29th, 2016 for our Halloween Party & Dance.
Yes, we will have a live band, The Whiskeydicks (a Celtic Gypsy Rock Band), reserved seats & tables, food, prizes and much more.  Bring out your sewing gear, come up with new ideas for costumes and start making your outfits.
Place: in Vancouver at Toby’s Pub & Grill, 2733 Commercial Drive.

Price: $5.00 Yes, five Canadian Dollars will get you a reserved seat upstairs, nachos, chicken wings and special prizes for members with tickets. Bring a friend or two and make it a night to remember.

Contact Iain: 604-446-4173 for your ticket today! 
When they are gone, you’ll be out in the cold.

You can come join us and see this fantastic live band, The Whiskydicks for our Halloween party & Dance, or you can see them at Whistler's Dubh Lynn Gate Pub November 11 & 12, but you'll pay more and have to drive a wee bit further.

To all Skiers, Snowboarders and Friends!

Toby's Pub & Grill 2733 Commercial, has welcomed us Back!
PSCers can mix and mingle each and ever 3rd Thursday of each month upstairs, as usual, at Toby's Pub & Grill. We are looking forward to seeing many of you, all tanned and bronzed from the summer sun and, with the new ski season just a month or two off, we have a few new things to offer our club members.  
We are supporting the B.C. Lung Association's Trek For Life & Breath, and will be raffling off the Income Tax receipt for the money collected in 2016, a minimum $90.00 value. 
100% of the money raised in this raffle will also go to the Trek For Life & Breath.
Thanks to Tania, Mookie and Marcey for doing the 200km ride this year!

See you all at 7pm, Club Night is this Thursday, September 15th & every 3rd Thursday at Toby's!

Rio Olympics - Brazil vs Germany 

Saturday, August 20th, 2016!

1:30 Kick Off

Want to watch the game with the PSC?

 Looking for someone to watch the big game? Brazil lost to Germany in the 2014 World Cup Final, a dismal 7-1 loss.  This is the game of the decade - REVENGE is on every Brazilian's mind!  If you want to come and see the game with us, just give me a call : 604-594-5969 or 778-996-3451 and I'll let you know where in Vancouver we plan on meeting.  We are looking for either Botec Brasil, 2545 Nanimo (at Broadway), or the Portuguese Club of Vancouver, 1144 Commercial Drive, to view this sensational match.  

Remember, it is for the Gold Medal and you need to plan to be at the location 1 1/2 to 2 hours before the kick off to get in the door.  If you wanted to watch it at the Alpine Club on 33rd & Commercial, a 2 - 2/2 hour minimum is needed to make sure you get in the door.  There are just too many people in Vancouver who follow REAL football.  

Call me and join in this historical match on the Brazilian pitch for the gold medal.


Great Job! Well done! What an Evening & Sunset !

To those members and future members who came by and joined our Club Night at Spanish Banks West, many thanks to your help in rasing funds for the B.C. Lung Association and the PSC effort to raise funds toward the bicycle Trek For Life and Breath 2016. We raised $90.00 at our beach BBQ! Well done!

To those of you who missed it, the evening was hot (27 degrees in the shade) and then the sunset, which followed,  was spectacular.  Many of us took the time to walk to the shore where you could see the full moon rising in the East.  A great way to end a Summer day!

Walter and Esther had our up-and-coming PSC events listed on a sheet and the late Summer/Fall lineup for activities looks fantastic.  We will post the events on the web site once our intrepid PSC Director of Communications, Joseph Lavalley, returns from his trip to Victoria and its university.

For now, get ready to go camping up at Blue Lake Lodge in the beautiful Fraser Valley.  We will be joined by many members from the Inside Edge, the Okanagan Club and even Calgary Bum Biters, so if you have not picked up the phone to book an RV site, a Tent Site, or a Cabin (sorry, the lodge is all sold out), give the Blue Lake Lodge a call and come along for what promises to be a superb weekend of camping. Dates: September 2 - 5, 2016,  but you can always come up early (we are) and stay longer, your choice. 

 See you all soon, have a great Summer !

August Club Night - Spanish Banks West

 Thursday August 18th

6pm - Sunset

Come support your club - Come support the Bicycle Trek for Life & Breath - B.C. Lung Association! 


 As in the past years, we will hold the August Club Night at Spanish Banks West (2nd furthest parking lot west - Look for the PSC banner) and holding a BBQ in the park.  Come enjoy Vancouver's beautiful shore, play some beach games, bring a bathing suit & towel and go for a swim.  The great outdoors is there for us to play in.
The BBQ will feature hot dogs, burgers, potato chips & cheeses.  We hope to have Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Coke as well. All proceeds go to our bicycle riders in this years B. C. Lung Association's Trek for Life and Breath.  Like cycling? Think you can do 200km in 2 days? Tania Lepage is going and I'm sure she would like company. She has done it for years!  Come out and support your rider(s), support your club, bring out friends, or just come by on your own.
Nature will be blessing us with a full moon, so plan to watch the sunset, bringing a blanket or some warm clothes if you get cold easily.  Then, you can see the moon rise up in the East!
See you at the beach this Thursday!

The September meeting location will be announced shortly!
