President’s Letter – Summer 2020

Hello Everyone

This is our summer newsletter but it is arriving at the end of the summer, which once again has gone by very quickly. This as you all know has been a very different summer than any of us has ever experienced. The weather has been quite wonderful, the water lovely for swimming and the ability to enjoy friends and family not really happening. As well, our American friends and members have not been able to enjoy their summer on the Bay.

As you are aware, we were unable to hold any of our usual events. We did manage to hold a Zoom meeting AGM. Not many joined but a few were able to do so. There was an update on the potential of merging with the North Sound Association and this is progressing. I hope in the fall newsletter to let you know exactly the outcome of our discussions.

You may have seen the contests on our website – a “guess where this is” and a “painted rock”. The winners are on the website. I must say when I looked at the places identified as being around West Carling, I could only identify the really obvious ones. I think I need to get out in the boat more and enjoy our beautiful location. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be one of the judges in the painted rock contest. The entries were very creative and funny. It was extremely difficult to pick a winner. To me, they were all winners!

Check out our website for the auction of a beautiful painting by one of our members Peter Pook and make a bid.

For those of you who are on the Bay, I hope you are able to enjoy the rest of the summer.

Stay safe and take care.
