2018-2019 Annual General Meeting

The 2018-2019 Annual General Meeting was held in the clubhouse lounge (Building 1031 Work Point) on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, at 1900 (7:00 PM)

This was a very productive meeting, setting out many items to improve the club and ensure that it remains viable in the present as well as in the future. Highlights of the meeting are as detailed below:

The updated Constitution and Bylaws were approved by the membership, but have to be approved by the Base Commander prior to coming into effect.

The Competency of Operators of Pleasure Craft Regulations require operators of pleasure craft fitted with a motor and used for recreational purposes to have proof of competency on board at all times. This has been effective since 15 September 2009 for all operators, regardless of craft type or age.

Be warned that there will be checks made on the water and violators will be fined 250 dollars if they cannot produce their card.

For more information, please go to the National Pleasure Craft Operator Competency Program Website (opens in new page)

All members are strongly urged to check their boats on a regular basis, and if there is an issue, contact the Military Police at 250-363-4032 to commence an investigation, as well as informing the President or another member of the Club Executive.
