This August long weekend, the BCA peeps get together to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Confederation! So, think Canada Day, think red and white and dress up your boat in the most Canadian fashion – there will be a prize for the best decorated boat in the bay. And, be sure to wear your own best read and white attire for the potluck dinner on the Sunday – there may even be prizes as well for the best outfits! In the meantime, dig up your best Canadian potluck recipe and be prepared for a great weekend full of activities and fun. There will be lots of games and prizes too!
So, mark your calendars for Saturday, August 5 to Monday August 7, 2017 and join us in Newcastle Island Provincial Park, Nanaimo.
All members are invited, even if you do not have a boat yet or if you are visiting from faraway lands. Send us an email  if you would like to join in and we can try to organise boat rides.
Camping is allowed on Newcastle Island, so you can always drive there and pitch your tents, or your kids’ tents for that matter! BCA has pre-paid for 5 tent spaces, so the first five members to register for camping get a free spot, after that, the fee is $15.00 per tent.
