President’s Blog - August 2015

With the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ almost behind us, we find ourselves in the beginning of August.  I have not been around much, unless you happened to be in Venice, Prague, Budapest, Vienna or Bratislava, yet I do take our club most seriously.

This Saturday, August 8th, Joel, Anna and Peter are running the annual PSC Car Rally.  With a smaller club, we are going to concentrate on Skiing and ski trips with the Victoria Alpine Club, but with the few activities we are holding ourselves, it is most important that you, as members, come on out and support these guys.  If you haven’t already called and booked, make sure you include yourself in this fun event.  The more people in any given car, the more fun you will have.  Bring a friend or two, and show them what fun our club is, but please support those who take the effort to make our club run.

“ Where will you go? It's a mystery, so get out your detective minds and come out for some fun times and maybe an adventure or two.”  Pacific Ski Club Newsletter.

At the end of August, the annual Labour Day Camping weekend will be held.
August 4, 5, & 6, 2015

Anyone who has ever been to the OK Olympics over the past 35 to 40 years will know it all started out as a small group who wanted to simply go out into the wilderness, camp, play music, drink good wine and beer, and have fun.  It was so much fun it ran for over 3 decades.  This year, I can promise you we will still have lots of great times, yet it will be much closer to home.  No 5 to 6 ½ hour drive up.  Just a short ride up into the wild Fraser Canyon.  Tent sites, RV sites, Motor Home hook ups and cabins are all available.  There are also canoe rentals.

As this is a pay as you go camping weekend, with no loss to any of our ski clubs.  Each person, or group, unless you are going for the lodge, must contact the Blue Lake Resort itself and pay for their spot.  This is a great way to get together as a group of friends from more than one club, as we have done for years.  They even have an amphitheater with a stage for John Francis and friends (or is that fiends) to play on.

Give the site a look.  Everyone is welcome to drive up.  It is about an hour past Hope, but not nearly as far as in the past.

You must call or e-mail the resort directly.  It is a pay as as you go weekend.

Golf Tournament - Mylora Richmond August 26th

Give Bruce Chadwick, Walter or Iain a call and make sure you have booked a tee off time.  After the games, we will be off to Larry and Betty’s for an evening of prizes and a BBQ.  Plan to come out  and show us your skills.
