Dateline: September 14th.
We had our first meeting of this year and also since the beginning of the pandemic and it was very well attended. We even gained two new members, Mo and Tom Wright a great start to our new beginning.
We had a short remembrance ceremony for members who are no longer with us, very sad but gave us a chance to think about them.
There are number of candid shots of last nights meeting and it shows that we were all glad to be back together again, have a look they are in the Gallery.
Dateline: September 13th.
Yesterday, September 12th we held the Club Car Rally in Cedar all studiously arranged by Janet and Malcolm Hargrave. According to Janet our eye on the ground, it was a lovely afternoon and everyone had a good time.
The winners were the Sqwelsh Team consisting of Bill & Phyllis Smith (Scots) and Linda & Tony Cawthorn (Welsh) hence the name. With runners up the Confused team of Ron Brick, Pam Smith and Mary McAdam.
I have added a few pictures from the Rally Below. The balance are in the Gallery.
Thanks to our intrepid photographer.
Dateline: August 30th.
Yesterday, August 29th we held our Club picnic in Bowen Park. It was a beautiful day and we had seventeen members and two guests. Thanks to Janet and Malcolm we had our usual Welly Toss Contest won this year by June Hale for the Ladies and Ron Brick for the Men.
Janet and Malcolm also supplied us with sandwiches and cakes platters for which we were very grateful. Thank you both for your efforts on our behalf.
We can now look forward to this years first Club Meeting on Monday, September 13th at Legion Branch #256.
I have added a few pictures from the picnic below. I have added more pictures from various sources to the Gallery.
Thank you to all our photographers.
Dateline: August 11th.

The Annual British Club Picnic is being held at Bowen Park Picnic shelter by the river, August 29th, 2021, starting at 1:30pm and will be a little different this year due to the Covid rules that Parks and Rec have in place. Hopefully, this should make it a little easier for us all to adhere to the rules.
The Executive thought it would be better this year for purchased food to be bought in from local stores, such as Save on Foods, Thrifty’s, etc. We would ask that everyone bring their own cutlery, plates, glasses, drinks and chairs.
I am sourcing party platters from local food stores, and also from Subway. For this I do need to have numbers of people wishing to attend the Picnic by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 250-741-0584, on or before August 13th.
Dateline: July 29th.
Since I restarted the website we have two events, namely the Mini Golf match and Dinner, plus the annual Golf Match at Beban followed by Dinner. I had hoped to receive pictures of these events and I am still hoping, please let me have whatever you have taken.
On Sunday August 29th we will have the annual Club BBQ in Beban Park. It will run from 1:30 until 5:00pm so it will be good to get together again. I presume the Organizers will let us know what is required in the way of food and drink supplies before the day.
Gradually the two Legion branches are starting up again. Branch 10 had an open house a few days ago with a Caleigh band providing music, it was good to be back there seeing old faces. I am waiting to see if there will be a September meeting at Branch 256, nothing as yet.
It looks as though we are coming out of our eighteen months of seclusion and that our lives are returning to some semblance of normality. As yet we do not have any information on whether we will be having a Club meeting in September as everything depends on the Legion and the latest Health Authority edicts, but we can hope.
The good news is that our very first event of 2021 is the Mini Golf Match on July 14th at Parksville. Due to the restrictions only a small number of members can participate but it is a start.
Now a request to the Members who are at the Mini Golf; please take photographs and send them to me, as our Gallery is very sparse and needs new pictures. Thank you.
