The Royal Canadian Legion BC/Yukon Command recognizes Accent Inns

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Accent Inns BC Hotel receives Legion Recognition plaque presentation Nov 2010

Dave Sinclair Pres BC/Yukon Command presents Accent Inns recognition plaque. John Espley received on behalf.

For several years now Accent Inns has been a supporter of The Royal Canadian Legion BC/Yukon Command. This past weekend the Accent Inn BC hotel chain was honored with a plaque recognizing our partnership. Mr. Dave Sinclair, President of The Royal Canadian Legion BC/Yukon, presented John Espley on behalf of Accent Inns with award and several kind words at the legions Britannia branch (very close to the Accent Inn Victoria hotel). Why is it important that Accent Inns works with such a group…..

The Royal Canadian Legion is a very special organization in that it has not only a long history but serves a wide and diversified role in our communities. The first thing that may come to mind is veteran’s services and the poppy campaign. For the past 81 Years, The Royal Canadian Legion has been devoted to caring for Canada’s veterans and their families and working with current serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces by providing: Veterans Transition Program, Military Family Resource Centers, Overseas Blankets of Hope for Injured Personnel, Support for the Troops Morale Fund, Government Advocacy, Acts of Remembrance.

Victoria Hotel get less rain than Vancouver!

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Victoria offers great weather

FACT:

Victoria gets less than half as much rain as Vancouver!!

According to the Weather Network, the total annual precipitation (for 2009) is just 557 mm in Victoria, compared to Vancouver with 1,272 mm of rainfall.  That’s a pretty significant difference!   The reason for the dryer conditions is because of the rain shadow effect of the nearby Olympic Mountains in Washington State.  This also means that our Victoria hotel gets more sunshine than surrounding areas. With 2,223 hours of sun annually, Victoria is one of the sunniest places in British Columbia, and gets more sunshine than most other cities in Canada except those in the southern Prairies.

Weather report is better for Victoria!

As an avid golfer (and wannabe weather gal), I can vouch for the numbers above.  I live about 30 minutes up Island and many times I’ve been ready to call off the golf game because it’s raining at my place.  But more often than not, it’s dry in Victoria.

So attention Vancouverites  – the next time you get tired of all the dreary, rainy winter days  – take a quick getaway to Victoria.  Chances are, you’ll be able to leisurely stroll the quaint streets of Victoria, sip on a latte and soak up the atmosphere  – all  without your brolly!

Confession: I like mud.

Cracked ribs, a paramedic visit for a possible concussion, an infected rope burn, and day after day of sore tender muscles spanning the entire body (legs, arms, abs… even fingers?!)… all a result of almost 5 hours of mud soaked agony at the Power to Play Adventure race on May 2nd.

Power to play 2010 Accent Inn Dusters

Power to play 2010 Accent Inn Dusters

Several months ago Mandy Farmer, the President of Accent Inns put the word out that she was looking for volunteers to participate in the Power to Play adventure race. The race is in support of the great work done by the Power to Be organization with challenges designed by Anthony Bishop who also designs for the TV shows Survivor and the Amazing race. Always having community spirit and a sense of adventure it didn’t take long for several volunteers to come forth from the Head office staff and so was born the Accent Inn “Dusters”. The intrepid volunteers (or sacrifices depending on your perspective) were Dave Splawski, Chris Knight, John Espley and our “fearless leader” Mandy Farmer. (more…)
