Looking for Guest Accommodation for a couple of nights in August 2018

Our son, Cameron, and his fiancé, Julie, are going to tie the knot on August 11th at our home on Falcon.  Almost all of the guests will be coming from out of town.  If you have a spare bedroom or two, and would be interested in putting people up for a couple of nights, could you let me know what type of accommodation you have and how much you would charge a guest(s)?

Much appreciated.

Blue, Super, Blood Moonlit Snow Shoe at Corbetts’ Place

Blue, Super, Blood Moonlit Snow Shoe at Corbetts’ Place  W5

Who?  All are invited!

What?  SnowShoe walk in the full moonlight through our meadows and forest.  One short loop for an easy time and a longer one for those who like a bit more challenge, followed by snacks (Pot Luck), beverages (BYOB), hot chocolate (Supplied) etc and maybe some tunes (bring your instruments).

Where?  Corbett’s Bar -1 Farm, 1400 Kelly Road.  Turn left on the second Sidley Mountain Road off Hwy 3 going east, travel 2km to “T” at Kelly Road, turn right, curve around to our place which is the second driveway.  4WD or AWD recommended!

When?  Wednesday, Jan 31, 2018 leaving our house at around 7:30.

Why?   This only happens once in a blue moon…but hey, we actually get two blue moons in 2018….Jan 31 and March 31!  In fact we get a super moon which should be 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal!  There will be a total eclipse of the moon where it will turn red, but it is about 5am that morning.  It is partially visible for us depending on cloud cover!

Notes:  If you’d like to bring an outdoor dog, feel free to do so.  Flashlights are okay for equipment problems, but are better left off during the walk.

If you have further questions or need equipment, please call Dean at 250-446-2420.  There is no need to RSVP.

Wildfire Gypsies Concert – Saturday January 27, 2018; Summit Centre

Dear Neighbours,

As you’ll recall we had to cancel the December Live at the Summit concert because of personal issues with one of the performers. We hope to bring Aidan & Mandy back to the mountain as soon as we can.

This month we are featuring the Wildfire Gypsies    CONCERT – Saturday January 27, 2018;  SUMMIT CENTRE 

Shannon & Terry Keogh are no strangers to our area. They are well know for their song writing, performing and production of plays. There were a driving creative force in staging several fun plays at the Bridesville Hall, a few years ago. The couple not only performed and produced the plays, they wrote all the songs. Their repertoire consists of original songs written by both Shannon and Terry, as well as of well known cover songs that will get you tapping your toes. These guys are mellow, folky, country and bluesy all wrapped into one tight musical package. A guaranteed enjoyable evening awaits. We are limiting tickets to 50 persons so that the hall isn’t overcrowded… so reserve your ticket soon.

Mark McKenney, President, Anarchist Mountain Community Society

Moonlight SnowShoe at Corbetts’ Place – Tues. Jan 2

Moonlight SnowShoe at Corbetts’ Place  W5

Who?  All are invited…especially those who want to work off their holiday overindulgence like me!

What?  SnowShoe walk in the full moonlight through our meadows and forest.  One short loop for an easy time and one longer for those who like a bit more challenge, followed by snacks (Pot Luck), beverages (BYOB), hot chocolate (Supplied) etc and maybe some tunes with Mark & Dean & any others from North of Sixty or who brings their instruments.

Where?  Corbett’s Place Bar -1 Farm 1400 Kelly Road.  Turn left on the second Sidley Mountain Road off Hwy 3 going east, travel 2km to “T” at Kelly Road, turn right, follow to our place which is the second driveway.  4WD or AWD recommended as it is a bit steep!

When?  Tuesday, Jan 2, 2018 at 7:30.  Moonrise is 5:30, but that is in flat Kelowna and our mountain will shade us until about 7:30.  The weather is supposed to be a bit cloudy, but the full moon will still make it bright enough to see.  It may be a bit chilly so dress in layers.

Why?  See all of the above.

Notes:  Our dog, Larry barks but is friendly when we are around.  If you’d like to bring an outdoor dog, feel free to do so.  Flashlights are okay to bring for equipment repairs and problems, but are better left off during the walk.

If you have further questions or need equipment, please call Dean at 250-446-2420.  There is no need to RSVP.

Gift card presentation to ARGO road crew

On December 21st, Mark McKenny and I had a very pleasant task. We travelled up to the Argo Road Maintenance yard in Oliver to present Roger Savoie, general foreman, with all of our Christmas remarks in a greeting card, along with seven Tim Horton’s gift cards, each in the amount of $50, for the members of the crew assigned to the road maintenance on our mountain.

 This was very well received and Roger, on behalf of the Anarchist crew,  wished us all a very safe and Merry Christmas along with a huge Thank You
