Friday Walkers

Meets every Friday at 9:30 AM, rain or shine.

Swans Friday Walking Group

We walk every Friday, rain or shine, starting at 9:30.  However, in the event of unsafe walking conditions (e.g. snow, ice, high winds) the leader may choose to cancel the walk.  Walks are generally 75 to 90 minutes in duration.  A schedule for upcoming walks is provided once a month, and a reminder is sent out on the Thursday prior to the walk the following day.  Details such as the degree of elevation (e.g. flat, hilly) and walking surface (e.g. trail, pavement) are provided in these communications, along with the location for coffee and the timing (e.g. mid-walk, post-walk).  The leader’s cell phone number is also provided.  Please note that dogs are not permitted on the walks. Members are encouraged to share the duty of leading the walks, and an attempt is made to vary the locations.  Anyone wishing to bring a friend should contact the leader who will provide a waiver form to be signed at the start of the walk.  Members who are not able to walk are encouraged to join the group for coffee.  Our goal is to exercise and socialize!

Happy travels,


Monday Golf

This group plays 9 holes at Highland Pacific Golf Course every Monday – generally in the afternoon but in the summer early morning tee times are available as well. It is a challenging course and more suitable for experienced players. Our goals are enjoying golf, camaraderie and coffee afterwards.

Out To Lunch Group

Meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month at noon.

Join others members at a variety of restaurants in the greater Victoria area. We meet for lunch on the second Wednesday of each month. So much fun!

To make sure we have a chance to visit over lunch, we will keep the group small. If the luncheon is over subscribed, we will split into two groups for a particular month. A waitlist can be established, and those people will have priority for the next luncheon.

As a member of this group, you will have the opportunity to convene one particular monthly luncheon. You will choose the restaurant, prepare a brief description, pick the exact time, make the reservation and include the address and parking details. You will send this information to me ( at least 2 weeks before the luncheon date and I will forward it to all who have signed up for Out To Lunch. I’ll make sure we have a convenor for each month. I’ll also send out the invitations, keep track of the responses and forward all relevant information to the monthly convenor.
