The BCA Calgary Chapter invites you, your family and guests to the annual Thanksgiving Rendezvous this October! Come rub fenders, trade stories and enjoy Thanksgiving dinner on Thetis Island.
Everyone is welcome!
Members, prospective members, past members and guests, boaters interested in offshore sailing and friends young and old are all invited to attend. Boats of all sorts, sizes and condition are welcome. Some come by kayak. Some fly in, others drive or walk on the ferry. Some come for one day, others for 3. Some stay onboard, others stay in the Thetis Island Marina rental suites . The choice is yours!
No Boat? No Problem. Some land-based accommodation is available at Thetis Island Marina, or email the Calgary Rendezvous Watchkeeper  and request to berth with a member boat.
Reservations for Moorage
Good anchorage is available nearby, but many BCA boats tie up and make full use of the marina docks and facilities. So the answer is “Yes, reserve today! The sooner the better.” Marina space will be limited (BCA shares the dock with marina residents and the locals) and it is easier to cancel than reserve at the last minute: Dock Reservations: 250-246-1443; Pub (alternate): 250-246-3464. BCA members will receive a reduced moorage rate ($1.10 per foot – 2017 rate).
Your RSVP is Requested
Please RSVP on the website , even if there are doubts (look for “RSVP for this event”). Advance registration is appreciated for planning purposes, but organizers also understand if things change and there is a need to cancel. Thanksgiving Dinner will be served at the Thetis Island Marina Pub. Dinner tickets must be purchased at the Marina Pub on arrival ($30.25 per person includes dinner/dessert/taxes/tip).
