20180711 Announcing the Annual GYRO Summer BBQ

As you all no doubt are aware, Barry Philips is unable to host the Summer party. This is a shame and we are all very grateful, I’m sure, for the Philips family’s gracious hospitality over these many years. We wish them and Barry well.

21 JULY at Colm and Wanda’s
Things are shaping up for the Camosun summer event hosted by Colm and Wanda on their property at Shawnigan Lake. This should be a fun-filled afternoon starting at 2PM and going on till whenever with games (bocce, French pétanque, couples’ water-filled balloons, horseshoes, croquet …) and lots of barbecued food.
Wanda is inviting everyone to bring along their favourite desert with enough portions to share. You can purchase it, get your kids to make it or make it yourself, but do bring it! The theme (optional) is “Western”, which you can interpret as you will, or not at all.
Other food will be provided by the Club, but, as with the annual barbecue, it would be helpful if people would indicate their preferences (meat, chicken or fish) and any allergies, vegetarianism etc. Also, please bring your own drinks – coolers will be provided – camp chairs might be needed.
An official invitation will be going out nearer the time with explicit instructions and directions to the house. Those who wish to bring a travel trailer, tent or other autonomous accommodation are encouraged to do so!
The address: 2338 Ashley Rose Close, Shawnigan Lake, V0R 2W2. Phone: (250) 929 1479

Directions: North from Victoria to Shawnigan/Mill Bay Rd. Continue for 3.6 kilometers, then turn left onto Sylvester Rd. (Sylvester is just after the slow to 50 k sign), follow Sylvester for about 1.5 k, turn right onto Baldy Mountain Rd., then the immediate left onto Ashley Rose Close where you will find us at the end of the cul-de-sac (the yellow house up the long driveway).
We can’t wait to see everyone – don’t forget your cowboy boots and hats ladies and gents!!
