Before we get down to business I just want to thanks a few people for making our transmitter failure on Friday as painless as possible;
First, Tofino Public Works made arrangements so I wouldn't have to carry a 50lb transmitter up a gravel road to replace the old one.
Second, LBR's owner Matthew who ran all around the Vancouver area early on a busy day to wrangle up the parts and keys and things I needed to do the job done.
Third and most essentially, Orca Airways for getting the transmitter out here post haste!! Thanks ever so much, otherwise the weekend would have been much quieter in Tofino.
Now on to new business. Through this weekend the Pacific Rim Arts Society is hosting a Cultural Heritage Festival with a lot of work shops, films, and other events. You should really have a look at the schedule HERE. The prominent local art forms covered are cedar weaving and carving but there are a lot of other things to check out.
Also, for those who wish to celebrate the life of beloved local Gael Duchene there is a public Celebration of Life event scheduled for this Saturday at The Tofino Botanical Gardens. While the event is free and open to all they are asking people to RSVP via this facebook page so they can plan for the numbers.
Well, that's it for now. Thanks for listening to Long Beach Radio. -Geoff
