Bring a New Member Night Update and GCBF Call for Volunteers

Category : News
** Reminder….. ———————————————————— Hey CAMRA Members and Craft Beer Enthusiasts,
Just sending out a few small updates about next Tuesday’s ‘Bring a New Member Night,’ and GCBF in September:
-Next Tuesday, June 27th is the above mentioned event in the Penthouse at Swan’s. As previously mentioned before, we are encouraging those attending to plan on eating a meal before or afterwards, as only a small selection of appetizers will be served. Swan’s will be having a couple of ‘Happy Hour’ specials with the first from 3pm-6pm offering $4.95 items with purchase of a drink, and the second from 9pm-11pm offering all burgers for $8 with the purchase of a drink.
Also, as brought up previously, this is usually our most expensive event to run, (this year especially as management changes at Swan’s have made previously comped offerings now costing us, such as the penthouse rental.) As such, we are asking those attending to kindly contribute a small donation towards the beer being served. Whatever you feel is appropriate, as this will offset some of the cost. We expect to have at least 3 beers on tap, with a 4th available should we run dry of any early. We’ll also have some door prizes available, and we do ask everyone that has their current membership card to please bring them to the event. If you are a new or renewing member and haven’t received yours yet, check in with our Membership Director Cayla as she may have it with her.
-Next, GCBF is coming up in about 2 1/2 months! The organizers are still on the lookout for volunteers, especially those with either Serving it Right, (SIR,) or the Special Event Server, (SES,) for booth stewards. If you want to pour beer but don’t have either card yet, the SES is only $20 online and lasts for 5 years.The great thing is it’s transferable at any event where alcohol is served, such as Victoria Beer Week, Car Free YYJ, etc. However, there are still other positions available, so check out under the Volunteer link and sign up today! Perks include a t-shirt, entry to the festival the day you are not volunteering, and the post-festival wrap up party where food and drink will be served.
-If you are a CAMRA Victoria member in good standing and want to help out the GCBF but don’t see a position for you, our booth is looking for a few good people. We’re looking for between 6-8 members that would be willing to volunteer their time at our booth on Vendors Row during the festival, so 3-4 a day. You’d co-ordinate with the exec member on hand to help answer questions, sell pretzel necklaces and any other merchandise, do the raffle draw tickets and oversee whatever game we decide to have this year. If you’re interested, please contact with the heading GCBF CAMRA Booth Volunteer and we’ll get you all set up.
-Lastly, our friend Ken Healy over at Askim’s Beer & Wine Emporium located at 1125 Haultain Street is offering once again, in conjunction with the GCBF, advance tickets for the event. Any member in good standing, with their membership card can take advantage of this offer before tickets are released to the general public. They go on sale at the store Saturday July 8th at 9:00am for $40 plus a $3 service fee. If you’d like to take advantage of this limited time opportunity, or you have more questions, you can call Askim’s at 250-361-3627. This is a great offer, and we want to extend our sincerest thanks to Ken and Askim’s for once again putting this on! If you unfortunately miss out, general sale happens July 22nd at 9am sharp!
That is all for now. Stay tuned to the Facebook page for any more news, or be on the lookout for the June/July newsletter sometime late next week.
Hope to See You All There. Facebook ( Twitter ( Website (
