A PIG POST – Niagara Falls 2015

A PIG POST – Niagara Falls 2015

Our little boat mascot has had quite a busy past few days.

…François and I ….and Major Pig (ret’d)

recently attended the Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons’

Annual General Meetings in Niagara Falls

representing Montreal Squadron.

Pig has made so many friends and fans along his journey with us.

(This link will give you an idea of just how far this little guy has travelled)

With this in mind it should come as no surprise that

on our first day we were asked: “Where’s Pig?”

He disappeared for the better part of the day.

…the rest became history,

forever web-documented.

Credit for most of the pictures and

Pig’s schmoozing must go to

this lovely young lady…

Thanks for contributing to the craziness.

Annual General Meeting

for the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron (CPS)

This year as members of Montreal Squadron

and as its Training Officers

we were fortunate to be able to attend.

It’s a super opportunity to meet other squadron members

attend meetings,

and do some socializing in charming Quebec City.

Francois and I split our efforts

covering a day of meetings

gathering so much really useful information.

Now it’s time to turn back the clock to the time when

Quebec was a colony.

It took me 5 minutes to get dressed…
Monsieur on the other hand took considerably longer…

…so many very creative costumes of the Nouvelle France era.

…new friends from northern Ontario.

…delicious decadent desserts,
not to mention a superb dinner.
…first prize?…really?
…the prize.
…a demonstration of the minuet.
