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!
