Rendevous 2022 planning

Hi Everyone,

Our five Vancouver Island Clubs are collaboratively hosting the BCLS “Rendezvous 2022” in conjunction with our Gemboree this year from Thursday June 2nd to Monday June 6th at the Coombs Agricultural Fairgroungs.  We are really looking forward to much needed and overdue commraderie amongst all BCLS rock hounders.   We have a busy fun weekend planned and the blog and registration form are now posted on the  BCLS website.   Registrations are already coming in.

We will be looking for each of our Vancouver Island clubs to contribute to the success of this event.   We will be needing volunteers for setting up, hospitality, registration, workshops, demonstrations, book sales, rock auction, kiddies corner and other activities.   Any time you can volunteer during this event will be greatly appreciated.
Please let your Club Zone reps know if and when you are able to help out.  Thank you!

We are looking forward to a really good turnout and fun active long weekend.
Hope to see you there!
