Ex-Cadets & More in the News

Pub night at The Cove last Friday March 25th went well. It was a bit noisy due to the Vancouver Canucks / Atlanta Thrashers hockey game (which Vancouver won), but we were in the best location possible in the upper area away from the packed lower bar and a lot of the noise. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves as we told old stories of our times at the Colleges. We didn’t have as large a crowd as our first pub night on 25 February but the following nine attendees had a good time from about 5:30 until 8:45 PM:

– 10061 Dana and Margaret Vanier

– 10323 Ken and Carol Tanner

– 10992 Jeff and Maria Poste

– 7516 Ian Sanderson

– 7059 Terry Senft

– 4913 Ed Hare

I plan to start arranging the 29 April event about mid-April and give you the details shortly thereafter. If you have any pub preferences please let me know.

Cheers,

4913 Ed Hare

Pub Night Coordinator for Vancouver Branch
