The Scouts have finally finished the boats we started nearly two years ago and wanted to get these photos of the boys taking them out on Beaver Lake earlier this month. It was a perfect evening to go out and the boys really enjoyed themselves. The sense of pride in their faces knowing that they build something that actually floated was great to see.
I would like to thank you again on behalf of the 3rd Douglas Scout Group for your generous donation of material to make this project happen.
This year we had such good weather for our annual Corporate Camp-out on Galiano Island (Montague Harbour). As usual there was delicious food (beer-braised hot dogs with sauerkraut…. whaaat?!) and other fun water related activities.
April 30, 2015 – Exploring BC’s Millwork Industry: Beyond the Basics
Seminars, Demo’s and Factory Tour for the Vancouver Island Chapter of Architects
Partnered with Roy Manion, Manager, Specifiers Program of the BC Wood Specialties Group
Hosted by West Wind Hardwood Inc
Driven by Joel Radford and Shelley Nielsen
Attended by 25 Architects and Designers from Southern Vancouver Island
This was both a challenge and a hoot for us. We’d never considered offering an on-site learning opportunity until Roy approached us. He nurtured us; coddled us; encouraged us. And it was a success, as born witness by this excerpt from the Vancouver Island Chapter of Architects’ Newsletter………
Our second time going to this show and exhibiting our products (flooring, decking and milling more prominently). We had a great attendance, maybe it was the great weather? But overall we were pretty pleased!
Jan and Joel showed of our new booth display that was milled and constructed in-house. Check it out:
