Christmas Lunch - Cards & Games group

October 15, 2017

It was a beautiful sunny day - but club members all crowded into the clubhouse anyway for a very productive meeting. 

- Members voted to ratify the updated Constitution & By Laws, enabling a successful transition to the new BC Societies Act, satisfying all provisions of the Act.

- Members voted by acclamation to accept the nominees for the 2018 Executive Committee.  (See the updated EXECUTIVE tab on this website)

- Club Directors & Officers reported on this season's activities, & there was lively discussion of future initiatives & projects.

- The Club is seeking individuals, couples, or groups to volunteer as FUN NIGHT coordinators for next season.  Please give it your careful consideration, as volunteers are always needed to make things happen.  Where would we be without our great volunteers ?  

Thanks everyone for a great season - let's hope for a little less snow on the green this winter !!

A record setting day for heat, & a full slate of bowlers battling it out on the green in this Mixed Triples event. Thank you to our Games Coordinator, Helen LeCounte, for adjusting the format from four 10-enders to four 8-enders.
