For 50 years a group of engineers employed by the Provincial Government (Water Investigations Branch and other names in several ministries over the years) have enjoyed visits to Jack Eby’s home on Hornby Island. We are all now retired, but the event has continued on a more or less annual basis over the years. There has always been a core group but with many others, such as myself, who attended only the occasional retreat.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary, it was decided to invite any previous attendee who could be contacted. This resulted in a group of 13 assembling at Jack’s from 27 to 29 May 2019. Everyone contributed to the success of the event, but particular mention must be made of Eric Bonham who masterminded the occasion, Peter Woods who provided a memorable 20-minute montage of the history of the stags and Norm Guild who acted as the quartermaster. Of course, none of this would have happened if Jack had not been the always hospitable host!
