As you may know, I am shifting gears from Parks to other interests this fall – yes, I am retiring. So to celebrate, and also just because it is time for a good shindig, Kim and I are hoping you can come to a wee party  at our place. Here are some details:

Where: 1096 Flemstrom Road, near Nicholson (south of Golden), BC – see map and directions:  Syl Forest – Map & Directions

Phone: 250-344-0444
When: Saturday September 14
Time: Mid-afternoon, until the stars come out, and possibly until they fade away again on Sunday

Venue: Pot Luck – we will have a BBQ and fire going, and will have some burgers, fries, and salad fixings. Anything you’d like to bring (appetizer, favourite carne, or sweets) would be most welcome We will have a KEG also, but feel free to BYO favourite beverage.

Accommodations: We have LOTS of room for tents and campers. There are also some nice places to stay nearby if you prefer.

Musical Instruments MOST welcome!

Please RSVP to this email to let us know if you can make it. That will aid greatly in knowing how big a keg and how many burgers to prepare.

Spread the word! All are welcome! And I hope to see you in September!

Syl and Kim
