The Winter Solstice Celebration Season is starting and our annual Christmas Luncheon, which some may wish to refer to as the Mawlid, Saturnalia, possibly Chanukah, Festivus, Kwanzaa, or Holiday Season Luncheon (have I missed anyone?), will be a sit-down lunch of soup, sandwiches, and dessert, along with coffee and tea, held at Royal Roads University, in the Hatley Castle Drawing Room, 11:30 for 12:15 on Thursday, 06 December 2018.

Warning: This luncheon may (or may not?) include a surprise visitor performing a Pre-Action Calibration on his flight planning process.

COST: $25.00 per person, which includes tax and gratuity.

‪The levy is payable in person by cash in the foyer of the Castle at the event. All attendees are requested to positively check in with the moneygrubbers in the Castle foyer, so that we may have an accurate Parade State.

Attendance at this popular event is restricted to 80 persons.

RESERVATIONS: RSVP by 1700 PST Thursday, November 29th, 2018, to the Club Event Coordinator – 6216 Willy Anderson at:, or Telephone: +1(250)370-1590.

NOTA BENE: When you subscribe, expect a phone or email acknowledgement. If you do not receive an acknowledgement in reasonable time, please re-submit your subscription to ensure all subscriptions have been properly actioned.

Attendees who must subsequently withdraw their reservation may be requested to remit the cost of their meals to avoid the Club incurring a loss on the event. Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Executive.

PARKING: Thursday is a normal working day at Royal Roads University so pay parking will be in effect on the Royal Roads Parking Lot (Old Parade Square). Special parking arrangements close to the Castle can be made for those who have a requirement, with your RSVP.

Bon appétit!
