2012 May - CIMarE VIB meeting in Nanaimo

Postby The Dieselduck » Fri Apr 27, 2012 12:16 pm

Date: Thursday May 17th, 2012
Time: Dinner at 1800 and presentation at 1900 - Dinner cost $5.00 per person
Place: Vancouver Island University Building 180 room 138 (see map) - Pay Parking Lot next to building 180
Presenter: Mr. Paul Mottershead - Instructor and Program Chair, Heavy Duty Commercial Transport Program at Vancouver Island University.
Topic will be: CCGA-P Newest Vessel the JC McGregor and the future
RSVP - Please let me know if you are going to attend (pdauphinee@shaw.ca)
Car Pooling - When we know how many are going to attend from the Victoria area, we can arrange a car pool. As in the past we will probably meet up behind the Saanich Hall/Police Station at about 3:30PM and leave from there.

Paul is also the Manager of Vessels and Equipment Standards, Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary-Pacific Region (CCGA-P)

This is a volunteer position working with their 40 volunteer stations and over 1000 volunteers on the west coast ensuring all the vessels and personal equipment used meet a high level of standards. This includes overseeing the construction of 2 new class of vessels and ensuring they are also constructed to these same high standards.

He is the Coxswain with the CCGA-P Nanaimo Station 27 for the past 9 years where he participated in over 300 on water calls for assistance

I have attached a map for those coming from Victoria its best to take the Parkway (by-pass) heading north and then take the first exit which is Fifth St and that will take you down to Wakesiah and turn left and go to Fourth and make another left and only a short drive up Fourth there is a Pay parking lot for building 180.

I am sorry to inform you that the CIMarE Upland meeting that was scheduled for Thursday May 17 has been CANCELLED. There just were not enough up island members who were going to attend to justify the meeting or for south island members to make the trip.
Hopefully next year!!
