*CHANGE OF REGISTRATION AND PARTY VENUE*
As some of you may have heard the Lakeside Pub has temporarily closed down. We have relocated our Friday night registration and Saturday Night Par-Teeee to the
COLUMBIA VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HALL (aka Lion's Hall)(CVCCH)
651-93 &95 Highway RR 3
Invermere, BC V0A 1K3
Registration on Friday Night will start at 8:00 pm at the CVCCH. Please have your HPAC Insurance current. We encourage everyone to get there early enough for an evening flight as Invermere can have great Glass Offs. A few free beers will be provided on Friday night for those who show up before midnight.
Saturday Pancake Breakfast will start at 7:30 at the Lakeside Pub as always, as we plan to have the Pilots meeting at 8:30am at the James Chabot Beach LZ then head up the mountain.
All Hang Gliders must be at the Airport the location will be marked for dropped site and they must be there no later than 7:30 am to ensure everyone can get up the mountain.
Paragliders will have the opportunity for 2 flights to score while hang gliders will have one. It is our goal to start to send trucks up the mountain immediately after the pilots meeting. Anyone who has a truck to help with the first set of rides up is appreciated.
After our great day of flying and target landings, the Pig Roast Buffet, party and awards will again be held at the CVCCH. This year we have an amazing live band called Maritime Kitchen Party. MKP plays everything from the Celtic fisherman songs to Newfie/NS tunes, and some fun, upbeat pop/classic rock music that is instantly recognizable with their own flair thrown in! As most of you know there will be time for the Annual Boat Races in between sets. You can bring guests for $20.00 each and kids are welcome as we are not in the pub now! Tickets for Kids 12 and under are only $5.00 for their buffet dinner.
Summer time in Invermere the hotels can fill up fast so go online and book soon. Again camping & RV will be available at Lakeside Pub.
All in all a great day of flying and a great party. Please forward this email on to fellow pilots and help us get the crowd out to make this another successful and fun event!!
Looking forward to seeing you soon and fly safe!!!
