West Coast Picnic Cancelled

posted May 15, 2017, 8:26 AM by NWTCA ORWA

Email from the BC Tibetan Association

It is with deepest regret and apologies to announce the cancellation of this year's Picnic.

Due to the delayed hand-over from the previous Executive Committee to the new Committee and the insurmountable amount of work to be done within such a short amount of time (website update, ticket preparations, talent show and debate coordination, and so much more) we feel it is not possible to organize a successful Picnic for all to enjoy.

At our meeting last night, due to the above reasons and the lack of volunteers at this time, it was decided to cancel the event.

However, the basketball and soccer tournament coordinations are well under way so if the teams are interested in continuing with these, please have them contact the following people.....
