GOLD RIVER DAYS Meeting
Wednesday, March 26 7:00pm
@ The Gold River Legion
I would love to organize this event again but I am moving and don’t have a lot of spare time. I really need people willing to take on some of the jobs and would love to have a committee to pass this on to. If you are interested, please come to the meeting or give me a call @ 2910.Email This Post to a Friend
Please note: We are holding another registration evening on Thursday, March 13 at the Ridge at 6pm. We need teams so this awesome event can continue! Please spread the word!Email This Post to a Friend
A warm fire and hot chocolate were most welcome after the 2014 Polar Bear Swim at Big Bend! Participants had a balmy West Coast day for the event, but the Heber River is cold in the Summer – let alone Jan 1st!
Young and old took part (youngest was just 5 years old), and organizers hope for even more for for 2015!

We are looking for a user or user groups to run the Beer Gardens for the Gold River Canada Day Slo-pitch event.
There are four fireman and two ex Lions members willing to help, but looking for more volunteers and a leader to make this happen.
We are expecting 40-ish teams this year. Anyone interested must have their Serving It Right.

Congratulations to the 2013 Road Rally winners – the Mike Meyers team which consisted of Cliff and Carley Johnson, Lena Watt, Catherine Wilson, Keyla Korroll, and Jason Doleman. The Mike Meyers team edged out the Jim Carrey team by nine points to secure first place.
Winners of the Best Costume go to Johnny Depp – each member of the team dressed up as a different Johnny Depp movie. The best costume award was voted on by everyone who participated and it was a close vote as every team was very creative this year.
Special thanks to Brad Unger and SuperValu, Village Video, the Legion, Bruce and Karen Creelman, Maureen Levering, Linda Vandenberg, Gordie Waterman, Melony Larre, Dick Dennison, Pipers on the Ridge, Little Dinos, Green Island Energy, Gold River Rod and Gun Club, Gold River Golf Course, Western Forest Products Inc., Gary Foster, Michelle Dexter, and Sheila Bugar.
And a big thank you to everyone who participated; I hope you all had as much fun as we had planning it.

What is road rally?
The annual Road Rally is an event sponsored by the Gold River Rod and Gun Club. Essentially it is a scavenger hunt done by car where you have to complete activities at some of the stops. One year we had to eat jello from a bowl not using our hands, so some of activities are pretty crazy. After a day of driving around town and gathering clues we meet for a potluck dinner and awards ceremony. Yes, 1st prize is planning the event the following year but it’s fun to plan as well as do.
Still interested? Road Rally is coming up this SATURDAY, APRIL 20th from 8:30am to 2pm and then from 6pm -1am. There is still space so if you are interested,phone Margie Weeks at 250-283-2308 or Suzanne Shears at 250-283-7722 by Friday. The theme this year is MOVIES so when you call to register, you’ll be asked which actor you’d like to represent. Costumes are optional but can get you more points towards winning!!
Hope to see you there!Email This Post to a Friend
