Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

Thank you all....

Pat was a special person to us. He worked part time when he could fit it in...he was semi retired (62). When he got sick last year he kept coming in for coffee and ice cream. Reace is taking it pretty hard as him and Pat used to work weekends together.

Post Pancake Escape to the water.

If folks are interested in a nice paddle around the island in a massive canoe let me know. The campground has a big "Langley" (by Clipper) canoe - it holds about 14 people, with paddles. I asked if we could use it, assuming interest, on Saturday and they said sure. Might be a small cost for rental, but not likely.

For anyone who hasn't experience one of these - they are a lot of fun and a good way to check out the area. I paddled one, with a group, down the Stewart, Nechaco, and Fraser systems last year - a total blast.

We would need 10 or more interested people of all sizes and ages to make it work. The trip around the island would take about 1.5 hours (I did it solo in just under that - in a much smaller canoe).

We could also open it to anyone, but other folks might get tired of hearing about how fantastic the Escape trailers are (I suppose we could just throw them overboard if they complained too much).

As for the Breakfast - Reace and Tammy - I'm an early riser, so if you want to, and have time, I'll make you guys some pancakes before you head off for the day. (really sorry to hear about your loss)

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

If there is enough interest by others, we would be in to doing that dirk. Regardless, I will still want to go for a bit of a paddle.

I'll definitely paddle - I have my own solo canoe here - we can head up the channel a ways (or go all the way around). It would be fun to fill the big canoe though (my fingers are crossed).

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

Hi Dirk,

Thank you for the offer for pancakes Saturday morning, however, Reace is now unable to attend most of the rally. With staff preparing for the memorial service and others fighting the flu it is necessary for him to work some extra hours to meet upcoming deadlines. We are hoping he will make it down for Saturday night for the potluck and stay for Sunday morning's potluck.

Thank you again,

Tammy

Yes, Ian and I would love to do the paddle thing. We have a dog who will be fine left alone, but don't know the campground rules. If that is an issue, then one of us will go! Thanks for organizing.

We just drove from Vermont, and checked into the Travelodge in Chilliwack, our last motel! Yipppeee! It has been quite something dealing with a totally over packed car and a dog and sometimes going up 3 flights of stairs with all the paraphernalia! We can hardly wait to have our own cabin pulling along behind us. We look forward to meeting all of you and being able to relax for a couple of days without zooming along a highway. See you soon!

Jenny and Ian

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

Hey Jenny and Ian, tomorrow is the big day, eh?

I would imagine it would be no big deal to bring Gracie in the canoe, unless there is no room. I would hope so, because we would have Jasper to deal with too.

See you in a couple days.
