Tami,

It's an observation of the winter Solstice on Friday December 21 taking place on the shores of the Upper Blind Channel at the residence of an individual known to some as, Chief.

There will initially be a gathering of people of all ages around a large fire and adults will be generally well behaved in front of children.
Later, the children will be taken to the safety of their homes and the behaviour of the remaining adults will likely become quite childish and the event will take on the appearance of a party.
Freedom of speech is defended and informed and civil discourse encouraged.
Unlike ST, this is a real campfire and bad behaviour will have you escorted physically off the property or in extreme cases, thrown bodily into the Blind Channel.

Typically Ms. Chief brews a huge pot of soup and and although guests are plied with modest libations of both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, it's a BYOB event.

All warm bivi spaces including the cabin will be occupied by visiting family.
There's parking aplenty on the adjacent lot.
Driving away intoxicated will not be tolerated so make plans or bring a sleeping bag so you can pass out in your car.

Around midnight the world may or may not come to an end.
If it doesn't, it's officially winter and the days will start getting longer.

Planning a good time with family, friends and climbers.

Last years' fire.

Yes, all those of us from Vancouver who are attending should carpool. We can rendezvous somewhere like St. David's (upper levels & Taylor Way) at 5:30, and proceed from there. Though if it's a sunny day, I reserve the right to leave early and go for a climb/hike.

As it will be the winter solstice, surely we can do some sort of wiccan stuff? Dancing rings around the fire or something?

Technically the party will be a celebration of the world continuing to exist, as 0 Z will have already come and gone.

Moses, opps mighty hiker, has spoken -though shalt carpool, unless its' inconvenient due to sunny weather -MH, shouldn't the second commandment read "thou shalt not covet sunny weather?

I've got floor space to bivy on a short trek uphill from Chiefs residence, available to those who need somewhere to crash.

Well at some point I'm going south this winter..... is that like coveting your neighbors wife?

Tough question, and I don't have enough information to answer it. I guess it depends on just what you're planning to do once you get south. Is that where your neighbor and his wife live? Or is she going south with you?

We need more information.

Not many coming from Vancouver if they all fit in Anders' car.

We can carpool with ya Anders but my plan is to drive back to town that night. We'll be doing more of an afternoon thing if that works for you.

I am still coming.

Hamish I am bringing that print for you, I missed the mailing deadline.

Did Marc-Andre get an invite yet, he's practically neighbours with you Perry.

Does Sanford, and Beaubien know about this too?

I'll be coming back Friday night also. Perhaps leaving late afternoon, gettting something for supper en route, then descending upon Casa Nadine and Perry like a herd of turtles. My car can fit four total, assuming a reasonable payload of 'stuff'.

Anything that annoys Donald Trump is worth doing, and worth doing well. Another round of Glenfiddy, please!

Excellent link Bruce, with Trump being described as "The World's richest toddler" and a "Useless sack of bile".

As for Scotch, I saw a nice bottle of 25yr. old Laphroaig in a Calgary Airport jar store. Alas, I was a bit short coming up with the $568.00 to make it mine.
