I believe it’s become a bit of a tradition for the last meeting of October to be “Halloween Themed”!
Thank you Doug, the host of our group music sessions, for always being a good sport and looking for an excuse to dress up ;).
Special thanks to Bram and Maria for taking and sharing these lovely pictures for us to enjoy (see below)!
Genelle is also one of our newest Board Members. We are so grateful for everything she does!
Such a great costume, Doug!
A great Halloween meeting indeed! Lots of laughs, lots of sweets, and lots of song’s sung.
Sandcastle Ambassador Bonus: Our hope initially was to get pictures of everyone who helped over the Summer as Sandcastle Ambassadors, but everyone was too busy volunteering they forgot to take pictures! Lucky for us, Karen took a couple (see below). The event was a lot of fun, and we aim to help even more next year! That’s the sign of a successful event/fundraiser.
John (another valued new addition to the Board) also graciously accepted the cheque on OSRS’ behalf from the Parksville Beach Festival at City Hall earlier this month. Thank you kind sir!
This year is flying by. Christmas is just around the corner, y’all!

W O W! That was quite a fun fishing event hosted by the PQB Fishing and Game Club (www.pqfg.org)! The weather, the company, and the location… made for a splendidly beautiful day.
The Fishing Forever Event took place on Sunday, May 28, at Spider Lake. The event began at 10:00 a.m. and lasted until 1:00 p.m..
The event had some generous sponsors (Quality Foods, Fish and Game) who provided a delicious picnic lunch prepared by the event organizer, Jamie Sudyko, along with hot coffee, bottles of water, juice, fruit and cookies.
The B. C. Wildlife Federation are also sponsors of this event and gave participants hats with the Fishing Forever Logo on the front.
It is so kind of the Parksville /Qualicum Fish and Game Club and Jamie Sudyko (who organizes this event each year) to do this for our folks.
Special thanks to the Fishing Forever volunteers who provided lessons in baiting our hooks, casting, etc. (they were also a great help in untangling our lines when necessary), and to Wayne Duke for taking so many amazing pictures and sharing them with us (see below):
Many members are already looking forward to next years’ event!
