As announced at the AGM, The Vancouver Island Ex-Cadet Club will host a Meet & Greet in Courtenay featuring a Dessert and Spirit Pairing at the Wayward Distillation House.
Tria Fine Catering and Gourmet Eats will provide the desserts.
The event is being held to continue the momentum of the Cherry Point Winery luncheon of May 2016, and to foster camaraderie between Victoria area Ex-cadets and those club members who reside North of the Malahat. It is intended to be an informal, fun occasion held at a time and venue convenient for participation by as many Ex-Cadets and club members as possible, accompanied by their partner, spouse and, or, guest(s).
Date/Time: Saturday May 13th, 19:00H.
Cost: The cost of the event will be $10 per person (cash), payable at the door. Kevin Macdonald will collect the tariff at the event. (To ensure the “Prix Fix” for the event, the Club has authorized a modest subsidization if required.)
The products of the distillery will be available for purchase separately. (see accompanying photo)
