Out and About Day Trip

An Out and About Day Trip is being planned for Monday, June 25. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for a day of adventuring and fun Up Island. The itinerary will include 5 or 6 of the following locations.

  • a 1.8 km return walking self guided tour (no organized tours are available) at the new John Hart Generating Station at Campbell River,
  • the award winning, internationally renowned Museum at Campbell River
  • lunch and beach walk at Salmon Point Restaurant & Pub
  • a tasting tour at Shelter Point Distillery
  • a tasting at Coastal Black Winery
  • a tour at Seal Bay RV Park.

The approximate cost is in the $55 – $60 range. The tip for the bus driver will be included in this cost. Details, signing up info, the final cost as well as info on the payment will follow shortly. I just wanted you to mark your calendars now.

The locations are wheelchair accessible including the walking path at the generating station. As I have been unable to arrange for transportation for members in wheelchairs, members using their own transportation will be given a separate costing.

Lantzville Probus Kayak club

We have now formed a Kayak club.  We will plan some paddles and may also do some last minute evening trips when the weather permits.  We’ll hopefully do some ocean day trips as well as paddle some of the lakes in our area.

We will operate it like the Hiking club, ie we’ll plan a paddle and then email interested parties to see if they want to join us.

We had a sign up sheet at  the April general meeting, but if anyone else is interested, please contact me with your email address and I’ll add you to the group for this activity.

I will send out an email to interested parties, and poll about days that work as well as areas the group would like to tackle.

Urgent – Dining Out

Dining Out at Simon Holt today, Friday, March 23 has been cancelled due to lack of bodies.  Figo’s is closed until next weekend, and I think it would be a great choice for our next dinner.  Keep you posted.
