It's hard to believe November is nearly over, and the holiday season is fast approaching! The BCWAS welcomes all members and their guests to join a festive social gathering in which to celebrate and wish each other well. Like our annual AGM, this will be a BYOB event - a chance to share a great BC wine you picked up this year! The Society will be providing a selection of cheese & charcuterie, plus hot and cold hors d'oeuvres for everyone to enjoy. Please bring a wine glass if possible, but there will be spares available for those unable to do so.
Even better, we have reached into the Society cellar, and our own Cellarmaster has generously donated from his collection, to offer a dozen exciting door prizes - odds are better than 1 in 4! We've also put together an incredible silent auction full of spectacular gift items (for you or your loved ones), including vintage BC Wines and vertical collections from as far back as 2006, with reserve prices starting below original value! A dozen auction items include the following packages: Sandhill Small Lots "Two" 2006, 2007, & 2008; Mission Hill 2008 Compendium & Quatrain; Fairview Cellars 2010 & 2011 The Bear; Culmina Hypothesis 2011, 2012, & 2013; Blue Mountain 2014 Reserve Pinot Gris & Pinot Noir; and Meyer McLean Creek Pinot Noir 2014, 2015, & 2016.
Date: Friday, December 7th
Time: 6:30-9:30pm drop-in, but door prizes are announced every ten minutes beginning at 7pm!
Place: 503 West 16th Avenue, Vancouver (at the intersection of Cambie Street)
Directions: The Holiday Social will be held in the same location as our recent AGM, in the Amenity Room of our Cellarmaster's condominium. Attached is a map showing how to find the Amenity Room via the garden courtyard; there will also be a BCWAS member in the building lobby to let you in there. The #15 bus stops on Cambie at 16th Avenue (travels north-south along Cambie from False Creek to Marine Drive and vice versa), and the #33 bus stops in front of the building on 16th Avenue (travels east-west between UBC and 29th Avenue Skytrain Station); transit stops are marked on the map.
Price: Only $15 at the door for all members and their guests! Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many to expect - the more the merrier!
Please make sure you have a safe way home: take transit, call a cab, or ask a friend to be a designated driver. We will have free transit tickets on hand for those who take transit home.
