Autumn must be on its way – the cool mornings have arrived. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s a gentle fall, and that these jogger-friendly mornings will continue to bloom into warm sunny days for many more weeks to come.
Despite a bit of a slow start to patio season, the end of our 2016 fiscal year shows much to feel positive about.
We are on track for membership growth and on target with our projected budget. Your new membership referrals are very much appreciated, and we look forward to welcoming your friends and colleagues who have recently made TCC their home away from home.
Final touches have been completed on the Fitness Centre and plumbing system update projects, and all deficiencies have been addressed. These significant updates were completed on time and within budget. More importantly, there has been plenty of very positive feedback from you – our members – regarding the changes that have been undertaken to modernize the facilities.
Member events like our wine tastings continue to gather momentum and are regularly selling out so don’t forget to book early for upcoming events. Thank you for making these events the vibrant gatherings they are.
Speaking of wine, on September 28 we will host an exclusive winemaker’s dinner with Philip McGahan and Ingo Grady of CheckMate Artisanal Winery. Mr. McGahan will introduce a set of single-vineyard chardonnays, which Vancouver Sun columnist and respected wine expert Anthony Gismondi calls “a complex chardonnay project … think of CheckMate as part of the Next World style and the Next Okanagan.” Plan to make an evening of it, with five different chardonnays over dinner in 1892.
Keep your eye on our e-newsletters for information about fun and exciting events in the coming weeks, including:
– Tuck into a fully loaded hot dog at Dog Days of Summer, September 13, on our Fitness Centre patio. Don’t forget to register as space is limited.
– The return of our beloved Gourmet Dinners on September 30, featuring a very special menu prepared by our kitchen’s team of apprentices.
– Our not-to-be-missed annual gala, this year on November 5. Last year’s 007 Gala was sold out and became the talk of the town with a significant wait list for tickets. In partnership with the British Consulate and event producers BrandLive, 007 featured remarkable food, incredible décor, and amazing entertainment. BrandLive is back again, preparing to wow us with this year’s gala, “Scandal: not everything is black and white”. Get your black tie ready to go, and book early for this spectacular event that is sure to sell out again.
I wish you a few more weeks of balmy weather, and look forward to seeing you here at the Club in the weeks ahead.
