MeetMe@Spring 2019

We are leaving the first two months of cruising season open, for HAPS members to initiate their own get-togethers on the water. (That thing about “Opening Day” on May 4? It’s a yacht club thing. Sailors are on the water every chance they can get.)

So plan in advance and let Comms know about it, or do it on short notice because you like the forecast for the weekend, and let the HAPS Facebook group know.

Sailing is better with people you know…

MeetMe@ Langley Murder Mystery Weekend
Feb
24
to Feb 25

MeetMe@ Langley Murder Mystery Weekend

Every February, the town of Langley does something special: the entire town devotes itself to embodying a murder mystery that takes all year to write, months to rehearse, and two days to solve. Over forty clues are scattered around the town, and the suspects and witnesses roam around in costume, ready to be interviewed by the over 2,000 participants.

After the public denouement in a local theatre, the winners are put in a draw for prizes contributed by local merchants, eating and lodging establishments.

It's a great time with HAPS friends.

Stuart and Linda Scadron-Wattles and John and Kerstin Hilton did it last year. Here's a link to Stuart's take on last year's event.

Register with HAPS here if you're going.
