Dear Fellow Members,

What a stunning summer it is turning out to be thus far as Terminal City Club celebrates 93 days of summer. Hopefully you have been able to enjoy summer moments on one of TCC’s great patios – or on ALL of them! If not, we are at the halfway mark, you have time.

The Grill continues to sell out for the BBQ Buffet on Wednesdays for lunch and Thursdays for dinner, so make sure to call ahead for reservations. If you haven’t tried our weekend brunch, bring your family along and enjoy a swim, play some ping pong or lounge on the spectacular Fitness Centre patio. And of course, don’t forget there’s Happy Hour in Cuvée and on the  Fitness Centre patio from 3:30 – 5 p.m.

Did you know the Fitness Centre patio is licensed to serve alcohol from 9 a.m. – 10 p.m. seven days per week? If our service team is not on the patio, feel free to stop by the Fitness Centre front desk to order yourself a beer or glass of wine.

FIFA World Cup wrapped up in Lions Pub in July. The Pub is now refocusing on its life as the Whitecaps’ Preferred Pub to cheer on The “Blue & White” with game day specials for members and guests.

Three years ago, TCC was having trouble filling a golf tournament. Since we had numerous members interested but not enough players to host our own tourney we decided to partner with Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation and now play in The Mayor’s Classic golf tournament. This year it will be played on Monday, September 24 at Point Grey Golf & Country Club. Limited spots are reserved for TCC members so book yourself or a team. Prizes, dinner, and all proceeds benefit Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. Please reach out to Member Services to book your foursome (or individual spot) now. We are very lucky the tournament will once again be played at Point Grey.

An important scheduling note: Throughout my year in the role of TCC President, I have been continually impressed at the dedication of our staff-team. Together, they truly make this Club a place I feel I belong. On Monday, August 20, the Club (all restaurants and services, including Lions Pub) will close at 3 p.m. The Fitness Centre will remain open until 6 p.m. This is so we can show our team our appreciation with an annual Staff BBQ at Stanley Park. We very much appreciate your understanding with regards to this special event. I know I speak on behalf of all our members in encouraging our team to keep up the terrific work.

A brief reminder of some Club policies that remain in effect and important to your fellow members and guests to follow:

  • Mobile devices must be set on silent.
  • Talking on cellphones is permitted in the Business Centre, phone rooms, lobby area, and Fitness Centre lobby only. Texting and emailing on silent is okay. This policy applies to all our members and guests, so please ensure that if you need to use your mobile for a call, you do so only in the permitted areas.

Finally, those of you interested in serving on the Board of Directors, this is a reminder that we are in the early stages of adding to the Board of Directors for the next fiscal year. If you are interested in serving on the board, please contact GM, Peter Jackman at gm@tcclub.com who will pass your contact details along to the Nominating Committee.

Enjoy a warm, sunny, beautiful August. I look forward to seeing you around the Club.
