Longest Day fundraiser - 5th Annual

The sun shone on us again this year. We were blessed and know that one day we won't be so lucky with the weather.

A new exciting venue was picked, mainly because of the insane parking prices last year. We set up for our 5th Annual Longest Day Fundraiser on the lovely Iona Jetty, Richmond. We picked this location, because of the view of open ocean. Which you can see from the beach as well as the 4km Jetty. Amazing bird life all around, dogs are welcome and free parking !

More pictures can be view at:

Put up the bumpers, we're going bowling

On a dark March evening, we laced up our bowling shoes and headed out onto the lanes. With a couple veterans and a couple first timers, we all had a great time !
A lot of smack talk all day in the office as the teams were picked
and bowling names where chosen.
 Team 1 was in the lead the entire game, but with a lucky streak
Team 2 snagged the win, by 6 point!

Hollyburn snow shoe trip

We are all regular snow shoe grinders so finding something that is a challange is not always that easy. Well...Hollyburn Mountain is a challenge, Cypress Mountain.
Just over an hour hike up, some of it enjoyable, up and down small hills in amoungst the trees. Passing by the cross country skiers. But then it is straight up!

 Reaching the top is well worth the huffing, puffing and sweat as you have a 360' view. You feel like you're on top of the world. Being so close to the Lions you think, if we keep going we'll be there in a few hours!! But we all know better than that !

Get out and enjoy this wonderful city !
