South East Gambier Community Gathering
Sat, 22 April 2017, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM PDT
Camp Fircom is hosting a first annual community event for our part of the island.
(That said, all Gambier Island folks are invited!)
This event is family friendly and will run rain or shine.
We have lots of indoor spaces for playing, congregating, or chilling with a coffee.
Tailgate Sale - Gambier Estates and Fircom Plateau
Drive your truck down with items you want to sell, barter or giveaway and folks can browse the wares as they partake in activities. Come swap that old broken genny for a set of worn out tires or a mountain of pvc fittings!
Fircom Lead Activities
Tours of the camp
Canoeing/Kayaking (weather permitting)
Field games or Rainy day indoor games
Arts and Crafts
We'll have some proposed activities and then see what's inspiring people day of and switch it up if needed.
10:15 to 12:30 Activities
12:30 Community BBQ Lunch (supplied by Fircom)
2:00 South East Gambier Community Meeting
Should people want this will be a chance for us to chat about any topics of interest: dock usage, the updating of the Gambier Island Community Plan, fire suppression systems, etc.
2:00 to 4:00 Activities Continue
Parking - The neighborhood parking lot before you reach the Fircom back road or archery field is the main spot to park for those not selling goods. If you have stuff to swap pull up by the archery field and we'll direct you where to park.
Boats - The Fircom dock is small so please do not bring a private boat to tie up! Feel free to drop anchor in Halkett Bay and row to shore on the north side of Fircom's property and pull up on the beach if you have the means.
Water Taxi - The Mercury Transport Saturday scheduled run can pick people up from southern Gambier and bring them to camp for 10:30. A great time to join activities. The later scheduled run can then grab folks at 4 pm to take them back which coincides with the end of the event. Book your spot with Mercury today.
The ticket price is just to pay for the lunch. Activities are on us!
Ticket sales will end one week from the event so we know how much food ingredients to order.
