Seattle in May

This week's game in Seattle was postponed and is at 3:30 on May 10th. This was done to engage the new Clipper sailings to give more travel options for the weekend or overnight stay as you desire.

However, with this change, we need to be able to confirm we are attending to those who are organizing at both ends. So This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you are going or reply to TEAMER, "that message you keep getting about stuff which you never bother to respond to"

Then, we can decide if we are going to go. They came here with 22, we should be able to match that.

2015 Tour of Ontario and Quebec

You might recall that the Eastern Canada tour for 2015 was the second tour that was planned for Ebb Tide. The first was the over-whelming choice at the AGM and that was a tour to the UK to take in World Cup. It met with miserable response, so the organizers decided to cancel it. The tour to Eastern Canada was then revived and the committee has done a lot of work so far, but we are finding more and more folks dropping out. From the original 26 players, we are down to 17. We can’t plan a tour with only 15 – 18 players as we know that injuries and exhaustion have a tendency to plague us as we get older.

Before the committee makes its final decision to go or not to go, we are appealing to you all to consider this tour as it was a Club APPROVED tour and to let the committee know if you will support it by signing up! If we do not have a committed group by April 15, 2014 (committed means $100.00 per person paid), then we will have no other option but to cancel the tour, for once we start booking with the travel agency, we will be on the hook for the costs.

Consider and then This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with either a yes (cheque included) or a no. Please don’t ask us to read your mind, a simple answer will help us make the right decision for the Club!

Your Eastern Canadian Tour Committee!
