Car Pooling
We will arrange car-pooling from Vancouver Tourism Info Centre. It works on a first come, first serve basis (i.e., if someone RSVPs and can drive 3 people, the first three people who signed up get a lift.) Please give your driver some money for gas and their time (you can decide a fair amount with your driver.) In addition, drivers should have cars with winter tires if there has been recent snow at Cypress.
Drivers are usually in short supply, so if you can drive, it is appreciated.
RSVP to Mike ( by 6pm on Wednesday, Febuary 22nd. RSVPs made after the deadline will not be accepted.  
Please indicate:
1) Are you a Mokuyokai member or JETAA?
2) Can you drive or do you need a lift?
3) Do you want to meet at the Vancouver Tourism Centre or at Park Royale?
4) Your phone number
5) Emergency contact: name and phone number
*Important Note*
