Easter SEals Regatta and West VAn Cricket

August 23, 2008

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


The sun came out this weekend and it was time to head outdoors for a couple special events. First, there were pirates everywhere at the18th Annual National Bank Financial Easter Seals Regatta & Festival which was held at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. Supporting kids with diabilities, the event always draws a big crowd from the North Shore. Also, this past Saturday, the West Vancouver Cricket Club celebrated an award-winning year with their seasonal barbecue and social. Honouring the West Vancouver Premier cricket team, who won the coveted BCMCL title, the sportsmen also invited politicians and neighbours to join them in their fight for the preservation of Hugo Ray Park's world-class cricket pitch - which is scheduled for destruction by West Van Parks and Rec sometime in 2009.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
