Week 8, Better than Ever

This week has been one for the history books, and we still have a weekend to go, hooray! We almost had rain for the Artistic Swim Show, but thankfully the rain stayed away. It’s been a summer of many firsts, and a return to many events we’ve dearly missed doing in person. It’s also a time for many lasts as we say goodbye until we meet again next summer. So much planning goes into 8 weeks, it’s hard to believe it’s almost over, but not quite. Enjoy the last couple of days at CBSC!

We’d also like to thank a couple of our board members who will be leaving us this year, for all of their hard work as chairs and dedication to the Club over the last few years! Pilar Osing as Tennis Chair, and Troy Anderson as Sailing Chair will be leaving us, and we welcome Stephie Hammond and Chris Bradley to the board. As well, we’d like to welcome Kerri Buschel, who will be taking over for Kate Montgomerie.

Tank swim and Gala are this Sunday! The CBSC Concession will be open selling a pancake breakfast, coffee, burgers and hot dogs for lunch, and freezies and donuts galore. Come hungry, and ready to eat, we want to sell out of everything!

Winter Maintenance

CBSC is currently waiting to hear from the City of Surrey to determine the protocols for our Winter Maintenance program. We will send an update to club members via the eSeahorse when we have more information about our Winter Maintenance program. Thank you for your patience.
