Due to these dreadful circumstances, this year’s annual event needed to be postponed. Everything is ready to go once we have a new date set. Games. prizes, place mats, lovely programs (only the date needs to be updated) and members have been busy writing toasts.

Please enjoy this flashback to last year’s dinner which took place at The Alpen Club, Vancouver. The theme, of course, was “The Final Problem”.
