Thompson Okanagan Electric Festival (E-Fest) Friday the 27th

Hi folks

I will attempt to give some general reports and an overview of the event for those that are unable to attend. As this is a fun event I won't get to serious about the results but focus on the general goings on.

We started with an early rise to catch the first ferry out of Swartz Bay to the Mainland. Mark and Robyn picked us up and then we met up with Jon Harwood and his son Jake as well as Steve Lyne for a visit to the buffet :-)

The trip was quick & easy with a couple Geocaching stops along the way. We arrived at 1400 and unloaded the truck at our hotel on the hill. It's fairly close to the flying facilities so this will work well for us! We met up with Brad Begeint and headed to a local pub for lunch.

Before dinner we had a chance to tour the facilities and I must say it was huge! Looking forward to the size! No walls of low ceilings to hit i this place. Dinner at Ric's Grill with Mike Allman and his dad Al and mom Vicky. Great meal followed by an early bed as we are all tired from the trip.

I'll update when I can and get some pictures posted as well.
