On Saturday, April 1, we plan to host our first ever Victoria area social. A luncheon is planned at the Empress Hotel, and based on feedback, we will gather later at the historic Q bar. Here are the details:
Saturday, April 1 – 12:30pm – luncheon
Saturday, April 1 – 5:30 p.m. – social at the Q bar (optional based on member interest)
Location: “Q at the Empress,” Fairmont Empress – Luncheon, 12:30 – 4 p.m.
Cost: Open menu. Plan for about $20 – $50. We continue to be successful at keeping prices low, but this price seems normal for this location.
Theme: April Fools’ Day – Think of two funny travel experiences to share.
RSVP: Friday, March 24
Presentation: Patty, if you wish, you could finish the second half of your Africa overland presentation. I, too, will have something ready to present. If anyone else wishes to be a guest speaker, please let me know.
Note: Hosting socials in Calgary has been relatively easy to orchestrate, but planning Vancouver area socials remains a struggle for me. Going forward, is there a Vancouver area member who would be interested in volunteering to help plan future area socials?
I look forward to hearing from all of you! Hope you were able to escape the cold Canadian winter.
