BCLS Rendezvous 2016 Hope B.C.

Sixteen Penticton Club Members enjoyed a busy weekend in Hope at Rendezvous. A little cool and damp, but lots of interesting things to see, and material to collect.

Thanks to the Abbostford Club for a well run event, "juicy roast beef" and a great pancake breakfast.

The Keynote speaker Friday night Geology Professor Dr. John Clague gave a most interesting talk, great slides, and he lead a field trip on Saturday.

Lunch Time

Club Display in Hope:

Visit to Yale:
One group panned for gold and garnets in Yale, some of us went for Nickel Silicate. The Yale Historic Site was well worth the price of admission. I was impressed by the number of artifacts - apparently they have lots more, with not enough room to display them,

Bucket Raffle:
Penticton Club members did well in the bucket raffle.
