Just to keep you up to date….. mark your calendars:

Friday Feb 9th – make sure you are signed up for the Walk to Whistler as part of the Bowen Island Spirit of BC Week and win a trip on the Whistler Mountaineer.  This is a return trip (does not have to be taken on the same day).  From Vancouver you’ll travel on the Coast Classic which features a wonderful Box Breakfast, juices, coffee, tea, softdrinks and the running commentary from the awesome staff.   On the way back, you’ll travel on the Glacier Dome…. enjoy the Afternoon Tea catered by the Fairmont Whistler with a selection of 6 teas; tea-sandwiches (cucumber, smoked salmon, ham); wonderful English Scones with Devonshire Cream and Jam plus a selection of desserts.  Not only does this leg of the trip include your coffee and tea but all of your wines, beers or softdrinks!  

Thursday Feb 15 – Bowen Tourism meeting – come and commit to building the economic future of the island based on tourism.  We will finish this section of where we were, what we have and where we are going!  Once we have the Foundation Program done, we will develop a Strategic Marketing Plan which will lever $20,000 a year that we can utilize to manage our tourism.  In 2006 we welcomed 12,630 visitors to the Info Centre…. and projecting close to 20,000 next year which equates to over $2 million in spending on our shores!
