THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED MAKE OUR 2012 RENDEZVOUS A RESOUNDING SUCCESS !

Our 2012 Rendezvous in Victoria’s inner harbour was attended by hundreds of enthusiastic and curious folk from all corners of the province and beyond. Many former and current B.C. Forest Service employees came aboard and shared their Forest Service stories with us. We connected with old friends and colleagues and established new relationships with people who now understand the history and value of the BCFS fleet of vessels. We are deeply grateful for the boundless support of John Flanagan, Nicole Gagnon, Brian Barber and the rest of the team who worked tirelessly to coordinate this very complex event. A special thank you to our sponsors The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority, The Maritime Museum Of British Columbia and the B.C. Forest Service Centenary Society.  We’ll be posting more photos soon and editing video over the next many weeks.
