Pandemic and the Club
The executive had an outdoor meeting September 2nd. The pandemic has had a huge impact on all of our lives, and it appears we will continue to be dealing with it for a long time to come. The current executive is willing to do the minimum to keep the club in good standing, however an infusion of new volunteers is required to generate more activity.
The current executive has served for a longer period of time than planned because of hosting Rendezvous, and the associated delays. We need new volunteers to step up and take on some of the responsibilities of running the club. We foresee a focus on field trips, and minimal administrative tasks for now.
We are planning a campout and field trip for the weekend of September 11-13th. We will have details for you shortly, but we are looking at the Princeton area, and exploring the possibility of a joint field trip with the Princeton Club. Please remember to bring a mask, in case you need to carpool to a site.
Whether you join us as a day trip, or come to camp, there will be opportunities to discuss further outings.
If you are prepared to let your name stand and take on some club responsibilities, please contact Katherine or Jerome, or e-mail the club. Voting by mail could be an option to elect a new slate.
Positions to be filled include: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, as well as wagon master, membership co-ordinator, and social co-ordinator.
Current members will have their membership in the club and the BCLS renewed for 2021 without a fee.
As our Provincial Health Officer has said – none of us signed up for a pandemic.
We welcome your input in these uncertain times.
We will post the field trip details on the website shortly.
