Hola! Wow, what a great fundraiser! I want to thank first of all, all of the members who attended our Fiesta themed event. Your support by attending and your contribution towards the raffles, silent and live auctions were much appreciated. It was also great to see so many people dress up fiesta style from senoritas, some hombres, and even two pinatas, believe it or not!

The organizing committee of Gail Eggiman, Gord Parnham, Linda Marinus, Bret and Becky Walters, Mike Graham, Jessie Kobelka, and Joanne Assen were undoubtedly the best team to put together a function like this. The majority of the canvassing and picking up of donations was also done by this team and they all worked the entire evening as well. Peter Ronning, Jim Leggett, Steve Eggiman, Dale Frame, and Jim Wheeldon also assisted with canvassing.

We are looking for interested committee members for next year as some of us will be moving on or wish to just attend the banquet rather than work at it after so many years.

President Terry Kerton and Pam Aldis were the door greeters.

Bartenders were Gord Parnham, Pete Savin, Steve Eggiman, Pete Marinus, Vic Packman and Lyndsey Douglas. Liquor tickets sellers were Joanne Assen, Terry Vadaboncour, and Jen and Brad Hanstke.

The Moose Horn raffle was looked after by that dynamic duo of Dave Duval and Stan Bekus.

Terry O'Toole looked very festive wearing the Lucky Scratch Sombrero which held $100 worth of scratch tickets. He was assisted by Lyndsey Douglas.

The 50/50 raffle was sold by Bret and Becky Walters and later taken over by Nick and Mary-Lyn Doubinin.

The Ladies Raffle for a beautiful Tree of Life pendant consisted of numbered sun visors sold by the lovely Senora Mi Kyoung Jung (Eggiman) and Senora Linda Orr.

The Gun Raffle was looked after by hombres Chris Baker and Dale Frame.

Dan Orr was responsible for the regular raffle tickets and Jessie Kobelka and Shirley Leggitt were kept busy collecting everyone’s money from the auctions. Bret and Becky Walters also acted as auction attendants.

The most wanted prize of a flight for two to anywhere in the world that WestJet flys was the highlight and finale of the evening. Tickets were sold by our "pilots" Capt. Seoung Ho Jung and Capt. Brian Eggiman; but I think people were happy in the knowledge that these two nice guys did not actually fly airplanes! Club member Gloria Sponselee was the lucky winner!

Two gentlemen that kept the evening lively and the crowd entertained were Tymo from 98.9 The Goat and Dave Stevens, our well known auctioneer.

Our meal, cooked up by Kathy Jerritt from Tria Fine Catering consisted of a variety of meats including some wild game, fish, and oysters donated by some of our generous members. It was a poor hunt year so we had to supplement a little. Unfortunately, there were some comments about the lack of cougar, bear, and moose but that is the way it goes sometimes. Thank you to Jim Wheeldon for donating the smoked salmon. I also found out he spent time in the kitchen with the caterers helping them with the oyster preparation! You gotta love him!

Special thanks to my daughter-in-law Mi Kyoung who helped me with decorations. Her cactus and flowers for the tables were bright and beautiful.

Without the donations of the various businesses, merchants and members who donated prizes, there would be no fundraiser so hats off to you all!

Last but not least, thank you to the volunteers who showed up at 8am to help us set up and another BIG thank you to the people who remained behind to help tear down decorations, clear off tables and load vehicles. This was so gratifying as in the past only 4 or 5 seniors were left to look after this after working all night. It was really appreciated. Gracias!
