CHEK News Christmas Drive Thru

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013
Chek Drive thru 2011

Help Support the Salvation Army at the CHEK TV Drive Thru

December 6th will see the “cast and crew” of CHEK TV descend upon the Accent Inn in Victoria BC. Just like Santa’s Elves’ they will be working hard to to prepare and host the 20th annual CHEK Christmas Drive Thru.

You like grabbing a bite or a coffee at your local drive thru so why not make your donations that way too!

Where else will you find TV personalities and volunteers alike “hustling and bustling” around to unload your donations of goods for the Salvation Army. Sold everything in a garage sale?.. no worries cash donations are more than welcome, in fact a Salvation Army kettle will be on hand and it sure looks great to see it when it’s filled with bills!

Having fun at the CHEK TV Drive Thru

Making the experience even better you’ll have the Salvation Army band serenading you with Christmas Carols. Rumor has it that this night is so special, Santa himself has scheduled an appearance! (why is it we never see Jim Beatty and Santa at the same time…..could it be..hmmmm?)

Please join us December 6th from 5 – 7pm at the Accent Inn at the corner of Blanshard and Cloverdale and help support those in need!

Victoria Hotel get less rain than Vancouver!

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!
