UPDATE #2  D- DAY CEREMONY 77TH ANNIVERSARY  SIFFLEUR FALLS, ALBERTA
IMG_0050- 7

We have received word that the 3rd Bn PPCLI will again support and have some attendance at the ceremony. They will also be providing a Climb Team for the ascent up Normandy Peak. The climb will likely take place on June 5th, but a firm decision on that will be forthcoming soon.

 

I have also been in contact with the David Thompson Resort (DTR) Office Manager, and I was advised the DTR had a successful opening this past weekend. Notwithstanding some minor hic-ups one finds in the backcountry operations of establishments like the DTR at this time of year.  They have the water turned on with the restaurant and station facilities were fully operational within Provincial restriction guidelines.

 

This is good news for those booking under the AR21 package deal. That said, I remind everyone that our block booking package deal arrangement under this plan ends 5 May 2021. After that, as stated in the last Club Newsletter, the reservation scenario for DTR becomes open to the public.  In other words, if you have not booked by May 5th, you might lose out when trying later.  With the increase in public activity in this area now, that means even campsite places are a premium. DTR Booking number: 1-403-721-2103.  Do not wait you could lose out.

 

Although nothing is sure the way things are going restriction-wise, let’s stay positive and with any luck we will be able to hold a successful ceremony and event, just as good as last year.

 

Masking, sign in sheets and social distancing “will” be the  order of the day. It is up to us now to make it work.

Dave's Update 07 Sep 2020

 

COVID has over the past months put a halt to virtually everything, including our club activities and events.  Now that some of these restrictions has been lifted to some degree the club executive has recently got together and discussed some upcoming planned activities which we hope our membership will take part in.  Even though we have plans for activities we must still adhere to the health requirements, such as face masking, social distancing and keeping our environment clean during any gatherings.  Below lists activities planned and/or scheduled over the next while.  Any changes to these will be announced as they occur.

 

As said, this month we are hoping to get back on track and continue on with our club life. Even though we still must remember to “stay safe” and keep our health concerns at the forefront.
