VPI Calgary Minutes of Meeting Thirty Four - Held 03 Oct 2014

VPI Calgary


Thirty-Fourth Gathering of VPI Calgary, 03 Oct 2014

1130-1330
Update 15 Sep 2014
Hi Don and everyone: Good news this time; I have spoken with the manager of 285 Legion (Horton Rd.) and they have VPI booked in for Friday, 3rd Oct, 11:00 until around 1:00 pm. They also have us tentatively booked in for the FOLLOWING four months; 5 Dec, 6 Feb, 3 Apr, and 5 Jun. Let’s see how this works out for us as an ‘every other month’ meeting and lunch place. We will be using the back meeting room that the Air Force Association uses every month and Dan the Man outlined last e-mail where the Horton Rd. Legion was located. No need for tie and jacket unless you wish to. Dress code is casual; Members and guests are expected to wear neat, clean and tidy attire at all times. We will be close to the Bar and the Kitchen, where our lunch can be ordered (they usually have a good selection of hot meals and sandwiches). When we order, we will get an order number which will be called out over the PA system when ready for pick-up. Hope this works out for us. The booking lady just used the first Friday in every other month to reserve this spot for us. If those dates are not suitable, let me know and we can cancel or change them as required.
Cheers, Dave.
