Everyone is invited, but we will need to sell tickets to this event to ensure adequate participation. Tickets will be $50.00 for non-members, and as a “Thank You” to those that are currently AMCS members in good standing, we will be offering tickets for $20.00 per person. Tickets can be purchased online HERE or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to pay by cheque. There are only 60 tickets available, so purchase yours now to ensure your spot. There will also be a some tickets available to purchase at the door and we accept all major credit and debit cards. All current AMCS members in good standing, will also receive a promotional discount for wine purchased through the Great Estates Okanagan website and non-members will receive a $30.00 credit towards their membership fee if they decide to join our Society. We will also be holding a raffle for various items, exclusively for AMCS members. AMCS Directors will be present to answer any questions prospective members may have about the Society or the area in general. Below is a brief description of the event.
There will be 6 wine stations and each wine station will have a staff member at it pouring the wine and handing out the food and giving a little explanation as to why the two work so well together. Guests are free to move from station to station at their own pace, and usually take about 1.5-2 hours to complete, depending on how interested the guest is in chatting about the wine and how fast they eat and drink each pairing.
Here is a sample menu – Feb 13

We will host a moonlight snowshoe at our place (1400 Kelly Road) on Friday, Feb 7 leaving at 7:30. Our crunchy snow supports the snowshoes well, but we expect some fresh powder this week. Friday’s weather looks cloudy for the evening, but sunny periods during the day, so there is a good chance to see the moon. Last month we had a vigorous trek through the fields and forests. This walk will be the same format as usual, except calling it “romantic” as it is the week before Valentines Day.
If you have questions, please call 250-446-2420 or 250-498-7579.

The vehicle suspected in local prowlings and thefts is a Grey Kia Sportage with Alberta plates FZE 154.
The male is approximately 30 years old, dark hair and goatee and he has a tear drop tattoo under each eye.
The female is somewhat younger with blonde hair. Both are depicted in the photos attached.
The Osoyoos RCMP had an interaction with these people yesterday but it is unknown if they are still in custody. The vehicle was towed yesterday and was parked at the RCMP compound. Be on the lookout for this vehicle and its occupants but realize that the Alberta plate will likely be switched soon.
