A large number of BCA members met at Poet’s Cove on South Pender for New Year’s Eve.
There were 10 boats and 34 people attended the dinner and dance at the Syrens Pub. Rita had organized this get together and managed to get a great rate for docking for all the boats. Most people stayed for three nights.
Besides the party on New Year’s Eve we had a great time visiting each others’ boats and getting together for appies or potlucks. The resort closed for the winter the day after we left and will re-open in April.
There was quite a large contingent from Calgary: Dave and Kate, with guests Jim and Margaret-Ann on Segue II, Barb and Ian on Lolani, Bruce and Marina with four guests on Amritha and Bob and Heather on Escargot.
The BCA members from Vancouver Island attending were: Barb and Bjarne on Hoku Pa’a, Chris and Jacquie on Inceptus, VI Commodore Glen Wilson with his canine buddy Russell on Moon Shadow VI , Peter and Connie on Cookie Cutter and Vaughan and Rita on Baraka Bashad.
There were a few other boats in our party from non-BCA members. A great time was had by all. We drank and danced the New Year in. See you all at the Vancouver Island Rendez-vous on the May long weekend at Poet’s Cove.
