We are working on plans for the next year including courses, socials, cruises and more. Please check out our website for information. We are also looking for help in making this a great year. If you can give a bit of your time, please call one of our Bridge members and get involved. It is fun and a great way to give back to our community.
On the horizon we have a few events planned.
~ June 13, 2015 ~ Hot off the press and in conjunction with the Fraser Squadron, a one day Anchoring workshop. This is a morning lecture followed by an on the water practical exercise. Cost is estimated to be $150. There are only 6 spots available and as I write this only 3 spots are left. If you are interested, please contact me ASAP at Cmdr@BurnabySquadron.com. This course was developed by Fraser Squadron and was an immediate hit.
~ July 1, 2015 ~ Canada Day cruise and celebration at Darlene Wood’s Alderwood dock in Port Moody. Come by boat, come by land, come by whatever, just come. E–Mail the Commander for more information!
~ July 3, 4 & 5 ~ 2015 Pacific Mainland District Integrated cruise to Snug Cove. Call Union Steamship Marina to book a slip or just catch the ferry and come for the day.
