February Field Trip
Feb 9 @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am

Following another member suggestion we are going to the new Demex Wharehouse.  This is not the Demex store we went to previously but is on Price Road.  You can see it from the Alberni Highway and if coming from Parksville it is just before the Coop gas station.

We have over 20,000 square feet and two floors to explore.  The upstairs is set up with one main large area and several rooms off that area which are decorated in specific themes.

It should be a fun and very interesting

 

Lunch will be at the Bayside Bistro and Lounge at 12:00pm

240 Dogwood Street, Parksville BC

March Field Trip
Mar 10 @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am

It is finally time – we are going outside to play.  Using another suggestion from one of our members we are going to head to Naniamo and Maffeo Sutton Park

I have gone to check it out and there is something for everyone here.

Our Landscape people have the water and its views plus New Castle and Protection Island

Our macro enthusiasts there are flowers blooming and lots of spots for close up photography

For our texture assignment there are so many things here that you will find it hard to choose only three.

I think it will be a fun and exciting trip for all.

 

        

Lunch is right next door at Lighthouse Bistro and Pub.

50 Anchor Way

You can walk from the from our field trip or move your car over to the parkade next to them.

For our gluten free members they actually have a special menu just for you
