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.
