VRCBC Monthly Meeting Tuesday Aug 18th:
The VRCBC have unfortunately cancelled many meetings so far this year, so They would like to go ahead with this one as an outdoor meeting at the Burnaby Rugby Club. Bring your own folding chair, refreshments, and bug and BS repellent. Clearly this will be weather dependent, so check their website from to the time. Also it will start at 7:00 pm so that darkness does not overcome the proceedings.
Burnaby Lake Rugby Club, 3760 Sperling Ave, Burnaby
The META Executive has cancelled the April META meeting.
The executive is following the BC Health Ministers recommendations as well as to some extent is being proactive, and will try to keep our membership posted via email of other cancellations that affect our Membership. At this point it appears most if not all racing events will be cancelled until the risks of the COVID-19 virus diminishes.
What are you dong to keep yourself sane while spending extended hours at home?
The META Webmaster, and probably the executive, would like to hear about what you are doing to kill time if you are among the non essential workers that are penned up at home during this Pandemic. Contact me using this webform.
Your Webmaster/Vice President is taking online courses (between watching Netflix) to keep himself occupied while under doctor ordered quarantine, soon to become government mandated quarantine.
Our applause goes out to those on the frontlines caring for those that have become infected with COVID-19.
