2015 AGM in Revelstoke, Sept 11-13.
The Annual General Meeting of the FHABC will be held in Revelstoke on the weekend of September 11 - 13, 2015. Our meeting is being held in conjunction with the Heritage Weekend at the Revelstoke Forest Museum.
The FHABC AGM will be held on Saturday morning with the remainder of the day and evening free to take in the other events, as detailed below.
Meeting Location: Coast Hillcrest Hotel, 2100 Oak Drive, Revelstoke, BC.
The hotel is located about 2 km east of Revelstoke just off of the Trans Canada Highway heading towards Rogers Pass. Its location is well signed at the side of the Highway. Turn right off of the highway and drive a minute or so down Oak Road.
Time: Saturday, September 12, 2015 starting at 10:00am ending approximately 12:00 noon.
Lunch: Will be available at the hotel.
In the afternoon there will be a 2pm tour of George Benwell's woodlot, and should last approximately two hours . It is located about 21 km west of Revelstoke at the Three Valley Gap. The WAP Lake road turn-off south is a short distance past the Hotel when heading towards Kamloops. Please meet at the Gravel Pit about 1/4 km off the highway.
Because of all of the activities in Revelstoke on the weekend, we will not have a formal dinner and guest speaker. Rather, everyone will be able to take in the activities of most interest to them. In addition to the Forest Museum just north of Revelstoke, it is also possible to visit the Revelstoke Dam, the Railroad Museum and the town of Revelstoke.
