PLCAC To Celebrate 60 Years Of Accomplishments

By Traci Read, Managing Editor | April 2014, Vol. 69 No. 4

On Monday, May 12, avid golfers and novices alike are invited to join the play at the Furry Creek Golf and Country Club for the PGA Invitational (Pipeliners’ Golf Annual) located in Furry Creek, BC. That night, the conference will kick off with a “Diamonds Are Forever” party where attendees can socialize and meet other members from PLCAC regular and associate member companies.

A three-day agenda planned from May 13-15 is packed with several informative meetings and business sessions featuring informed and interesting speakers. Also planned each day of the conference are guided tours and activities.

For more fun and a chance to mingle with old friends and new, delegates and their guests are invited to the “Splash Bash” at the Vancouver Aquarium on Tuesday, May 13. Home to more than 50,000 animals, it is the largest marine wildlife museum in Canada that offers a unique opportunity to get close to some of the world’s most elusive sea creatures.

What’s more appropriate than a theme night titled “Best of the Sixties” in celebration of the PLCAC’s 60th Anniversary? An endless list of memorable 1960s characters will come alive to welcome attendees on Wednesday’s theme night. The evening promises to be a blast into the past as attendees are invited to dress in their favorite character from the 60s.

The conference will close with the “60th Gala Celebration Reception & Banquet.” All delegates and their guests are invited to the formal event on Thursday evening. The reception will be held in the Westin Bayshore foyer with dinner and entertainment to follow in the ballroom.
