DEAR FELLOW MEMBERS,
Canada Day is upon us and the long beautiful days of summer are here. This is my favourite time of year – the time our province shines – so be sure to make lunch or dinner plans with colleagues or family, or just take a moment on your own to sit back and take it all in.
On June 19, several of our Board of Directors and I had the pleasure of attending our annual Slide into Summer Social. It was very well attended, with more than 300 members and guests. This event gave us a chance to showcase our beautiful patios on all three levels of our Club. On behalf of our members, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to our hard-working staff for running this successful event.
The TCC summer events schedule should keep you and your guests as busy as you would like to be. These include:
• Summer Lunch Buffets every Wednesday in the Grill
• Dinner Buffet Al Fresco, with live music, every Thursday in the Grill
• Food and drink specials and themed pop-up events that run throughout the summer
Watch your email or check in with Member Services for details on these events and more. And remember, lately, our Grill restaurant has been particularly busy for breakfast and dinner service – and it’s not just on weekdays. The family business on weekends has really grown. So if you are planning to host a larger group in one of our restaurants, I recommend that you take a moment to reserve ahead! It helps us ensure that we have appropriate service staffing when and where we need it.
Further to this, our Board continues to focus on supporting the delivery of impeccable service in everything we do at TCC, including both front-of-house staff and those who support behind the scenes. I am pleased to share that Owen Stuart has rejoined TCC as our Assistant Beverage Manager. In this role, Owen will be working directly with our new Director of Wine, DJ Kearney. We are lucky to have them both! DJ has trained more than one thousand sommeliers, and we are looking to her and Owen to take the wine program at TCC to the next level.
With respect to some on-going projects, I’m happy to report that the new lobby doors are complete, and they look fantastic! If you have not seen them yet, plan to stop by soon. I believe that all our members will appreciate the added security, and more defined sense of arrival. Progress is continuing on the Members’ Lounge, and we anticipate its completion later this summer.
We hope to make this space as inviting as possible – a place for a members and their guests to kick up their feet, and enjoy their Club.
That’s all for now. Don’t forget your sunscreen and enjoy everything summer in Vancouver brings!
