SEPTEMBER 2008 REUNION!
We have some exciting news to bring you – the venue for the Kontinentals and Friends dinner dance has been changed to the Terminal City Club’s Metropolitan Ballroom. It is a much larger facility and the Club is the pre-eminent Vancouver Business Club situated in downtown Vancouver. There is no change in the price of $55 previously quoted. For those interested in checking out the facilities, please visit the following web page: http://www.tcclub.com/dining/diningroom.php
The dinner menu for September 5 is as follows:
Variety of Assorted Rustic Breads and RollsFresh Market Greens, Raspberry Vinaigrette
Traditional Caesar Salad, Focaccia Croutons
Cucumber Dill Salad
Club Potato Salad
Plum Tomato and Red Onion Salad
Shell Pasta with Shrimp in Pesto Mayonnaise
Grilled Mediterranean Vegetables in Balsamic Vinegar
Marinated Wild Mushrooms with Oregano
Pacific Hand Peeled Shrimp & Smoked BC Salmon
Assorted Sushi Nigiri & Rolls with Traditional Condiments
Roast Ribeye of Beef, Fresh Herb and Garlic Crust
Grilled BC Salmon & Prawns, Sauted Spinach & Cherry Tomatoes
BBQ Chicken, Mongolian Black Bean Sauce
Butternut Squash Ravioli, Fresh Parmesan Shavings
Steamed Jasmine Rice with Coconut Milk
International Cheese Board
Sliced Seasonal Fruits and Berries
Pastries, Fruit Flans, Cheesecakes and Tortes
The Terminal City Club is slightly further away from the Richmond Hilton Hotel than the original venue and as a result, we are thinking of arranging for a limousine bus to pick up and return. We need to know how many of you will take this option so we can select the right bus size. The cost of a cab ride for four from the Richmond hotel to the Terminal City Club is roughly $40, so that on a per person basis the return cab fare would be $20. A bus would cost about $12 to $15 per person return.
Those of you who wish to congregate at the Richmond Hilton Hotel to take the bus please advise as soon as possible so that we can make the necessary arrangements. The same question holds for the dinner cruise on September 3rd.
So………when you reply, please indicate your preference for the bus shuttle for both evenings. We will collect the fare on the bus.
Thanks for your attention to this request.
