Dear Fellow Signallers;

     Swampy and I hope you all have had an excellent winter and are ready for another reunion in August.

     Because of the many positive comments we received re the Coombs Country Campground and RV Park where we held the Reunion over the past couple of years, we will again be holding our weekend there. The Coombs Country Campground and RV Park, is located on the Alberni Highway just outside Parksville. I have blocked off 3 group sites, #'s 83, 84, 87. We don't have site #85 this, so are going to have to make do with #87. You can get a good look of their facilities by clicking on this link: http://www.coombscampground.com . This is an excellent campground with several amenities including washrooms and showers. Once we determine, ballpark, who/how many we will have, we will be able to plan for food etc.

     This annual reunion is open to ALL Ex-Sigs and current Sigs personnel as well as those who may have been or are associated with Sigs in any way. It would be great to have you attend. Since we are a non-profit organization, all our funds are raised through generous donations to our "kitty" by you the attendees. This is what enables us to do this every year. It is a good time for all!!

PLEASE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE WE WOULD REQUEST THAT YOU CONTACT ONE OF US A.S.A.P. but PLEASE, no later than JULY 20, 2017, AND LET US KNOW IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING. This would greatly assist us in planning the food etc. In past years many have procrastinated with letting us know if they were attending and this has resulted in skewed numbers. We would ask you again PLEASE LET US KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, IF NOT SOONER. These sites are group sites which require two units at each site each day. We have to know who will be camping otherwice we will end up paying for an unused site. We thank you in advance.

     Reunion 2017 will be held in August, Friday - Saturday - Sunday 25 - 26 - 27. FYI, we do this weekend to avoid the Labour Day weekend which include long BC Ferry lineups for any of you who may be coming from off Island. The format will be the same as previous years with a Meet & Greet on Friday afternoon/evening. Several trays of finger food will be available for this meet and greet. Saturday is the main day in which we expect everyone not camping to put in an appearance. Food for Saturday will be available in the form of hamburgers and hotdogs off the BBQ and whatever else we can come up with. This food will be available at Swampy's "Road Kill Cafe".

     Camping check-in will be any time after 1200 hours on Friday. We must vacate by 1100 hours on the Sunday.

     Hope to see as many of you as possible August 26 - 27 - 28, 2016.

Sincerely

Jim Troyanek
