Events

Special Events are scheduled from time to time. Popular among members have been industrial tours including the Triumph Laboratory at UBC, the Titanic Exhibition, the Vancouver Aquarium, Bard on the Beach and winery tours to name a few. The annual Christmas Luncheon is also a favourite.
Tour ideas come from member’s suggestions and vary widely in content and location. To view the most current event, look at the most recent newsletter which will show all the details (Newsletters).
