If you don't know how you're going to vote on October 9th,
I hope you read this before 7pm this evening (Wednesday) or otherwise
you'll miss the all important MEET THE CANDIDATES forum....... an ALL
candidates forum, being held at the Chester Legion from 7:00 to 9:30 pm,
co-sponsored by the Chester Municipal Chamber of Commerce and VOCTADA.
They anticipate having time for questions from the audience, so get there and query.
This Week in Chester
you don't get to use your voice at the Legion on Wednesday night, you
can do so to tunes at the Chester Legion KARAOKE night from 9:00 pm to
1:00 am. Members and guests over 19 years welcome. Put your shower
singing to good use....... well, that's debatable... but there promises
to be a larger audience than each morning.
If you prefer to listen and dance to music, rather than belt it out yourself, the Fo'c'sle has MEMPHIS KNIGHTS performing at 9pm on Friday.
On Thursday, the Rope Loft
is hosting the ABF (Absolute Bloody FINAL Thursday Race). The race
starts at 6pm from the CYC and finishes at the Rope Loft wharf.....
after which there will be celebration and prizes. Come cheer them on and
join in the fun.
note that due to demand and good weather..........The CHESTER ARTISAN
& FARMERS MARKET is continuing through to Friday, October 18th after
which the vendors will finally remove their tents for this season (if
the wind doesn't get them first........Sorry Joan!)
On Saturday October 5th, the AL NUNN MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT in support of Chester Minor Hockey is being held at the Chester Golf Club.
Registration is $360 for a team of 4 - Carts are to be booked by
individual teams and can be paid for on the day of tournament to the
Golf Course. A delicious meal will be provided at the end of the
tournament - your choice of either BBQ Steak or BBQ Chicken Dinner.
Tournament is a shotgun start at 10:00 am. If you're interested in
putting a team in or would like to kindly donate prizes or sponsor a
hole, please let Satrina know at 531 2207. They are only able to
accommodate 36 teams on the course.
This weekend also marks the closing of the Chester Yacht Club
for the season. However, before everything is wrapped up, they are
having a TURKEY DOO at 5pm on Saturday (complimentary turkey, fixin's,
rolls and dessert) after the Turkey Bowl Race which starts at 1.30pm.
This is for CYC members, crew and guests i.e. All are welcome.
If you're into trivia the winter will be a short one for you as TRIVIA TUESDAYS is back at the Fo'c'sle,
every Tuesday at 6.30pm. Competition is fierce but fun. Put a team
together and see if you can oust the all-time winning team (Sam, Mary,
Tom, Anne, Jeff, Monica, Ryan, and Annika) so you too can go home with a
shiny trophy and medal in 2014.
have wrapped filming season 4. There may be less 'road works' around
the village or maybe the DOT will actually get some some much needed
fixin's done before the snow flies?! (Question for Wednesday?!) The
production brings vitality to the village in all shapes and sizes - but
no word yet if there is to be a season 5...... as for the missing
mascot?...... the investigation is ongoing.
Does anyone know anyone willing to help Miss Suzi Fraser stack her winter wood at the Mecklenburgh Inn?
She's got it all into the basement 'toute seule', but might need 'help'
stacking it down there as her first free-standing row fell down! This
is a paying business opportunity for a young entrepreneur as she's not
getting any younger and she'll be burning wood in that stove for years
to come..... Her number is 275 4638 and she'll answer if not trapped
under a wood pile..........(this is NOT a joke!)
