Wait There’s Four More!
Even a little bit of well-needed rain didn’t dampen our spirits. This past week we’ve had some exciting events take place such as the Sailing Regatta, the Adult & Child tennis tourney, the Snail River Run, and we hosted our Water Polo tournament to name a few. For a volunteer-run club, we know how to pack a punch into each event. No one pulls it off quite like CBSC! Happy Fun ‘Farm’ Day to everyone.
An important message from CBSC:
Reminder: parents are responsible for the behaviour of their children on CBSC premises. Do not leave young children unattended. Our club facilities such as the pool deck, tennis viewing areas, coaching areas and our well-tended to gardens are not a playground for kids.
Racquets should be used on the court only, and tennis balls are for lessons.
Thank you for helping us take care of our beautiful facilities, and keeping everyone safe!

EVENTS & HAPPENINGS
Snail River Run
Snail River Run 2023 was a huge success! Perfect weather conditions, a quiet beach due to a cooler morning and the excitement from all participants made this evening one for the books. And speaking of books, Snail River has a new all time record of 11 minutes and 16 seconds run by Mark Wilkie. To add to this epic milestone, the fastest female runner of the evening was his wife, Sabrina Wilkie, making this the first ever husband and wife duo to win the fastest male and female category – a big congratulations to the Wilkie family!
Another huge thank you to all of our amazing volunteers that allow us to keep this race going.

Men’s Golf, Saturday August 5
Attention CBSC Men’s Golf:
The day is fast approaching August 5th! The theme this year is Mexican Fiesta!!!! The cervezas will be flying, the food will be amazing and the golf will be tragic…..but we can all say we were there in 2023 when that weird guy won the Gerbil!
Note: if you have any foursome requests still please send them my way at 778-995-8783 and if you have any prizes you’d like to drop off, the address is 2851 McBride Ave. There will be plenty of snacks and beverages on the course, maybe even a few Margaritas. Dinner will start at 6:30pm back at the pool (Mexican buffet) and feel free to bring your swim shorts for a dip. The golf will start at NicoWynd at 12:30pm shotgun style.
Thanks and keep it in the short grass,
