Camosun Chargers Hall of Fame

Monday, September 30th, 2013

chargers 1On Friday night (Sept 27) I attended the Camosun Chargers tip-off dinner, auction and first ever Hall of Fame induction Ceremony.  Talk about a special night. As always the Chargers team members (students) were there dressed sharply and ready to help all their “guests” lighten their wallets just a bit. Athletes were stationed at every Silent Auction table offering wonderful encouragement and “coaching” as to how we should place our bids. As we sat down to Dinner the  MC for the evening , Mira from CTV Sports, turned over the mic to Chargers team members from all the represented sports. One of the students commented during his speech that they hope to be leaders in the future. Let me tell you, these student athletes achieve more than most people just in the two to 4 years they attend college. Their athletic ability is second to none but wait, there’s more, these “kids” are smart. Really smart. They achieve some incredible academic scores, scores that anyone without the rigorous training schedule of a Chargers team member would be proud to have.  Watching and listening to these students speak like professional presenters had me thinking to myself, “these young men and ladies and leaders now and we are so lucky to have them in our community.” Credit must also go to the incredible coaches and the support and administration staff that pull the Chargers program together. A true example of the statement, “anythings possible.”

Victoria Hotel Package – Your Solution to the Malahat

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Winding Road sign represents the malahatOne day last winter I had to make some sales calls in Campbell River and other Northern Vancouver Island communities.  I hit the road out of Victoria at 6:00 am in order to get there at the start of the business day.

My goal to avoid traffic and make good time was immediately challenged by torrential rains. As I crept over the Malahat,  I felt my shoulders rise and my body tense as I struggled with the wind, rain and darkness.  (more…)

Camosun Chargers Golfers Are Back At It

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011
Victoria BC's Jared Hundza Camosun Chargers Golf team member

Jared Hundza Camosun Chargers Golf team member

Under the guidance of Coach John Randle, the Camosun College Chargers, who went to the nationals last season, had a great finish at the first tournament of 2011. Coach Randle obviously takes his experience as a Canadian PGA professional and owner of the  Randle Golf school in Victoria, and applies it to the Chargers program.  It’s very apparent that blessed with some very talented players and one of the best coaches anywhere, we can expect the Chargers to be well represented moving forward.

A great example of this is Jared Hundza, Camosun recruit,  claiming the low total at PacWest Tournament #1. Despite his status as a first-year student-athlete at Camosun, the UBC transfer student quickly claimed the top spot on the Leaderboard as the newly-named PACWEST hit the links to begin the 2011 golf season.

Have you been to Abkhazi Gardens?

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Victoria is well known for its Gardens. Most folks know about the world famous Butchart Gardens, one of the greatest places to visit anytime of the year. Accent Inns Victoria hotel, and our other 4 locations around the province, live up to our Victoria BC heritage by also covering our Inns with beautiful hanging baskets.  But I find that many local Victorians and visitors alike are not aware of the wonderful Abkhazi Gardens.  We are so lucky to have such a place in one of our oldest neighborhoods. Of course these gardens would not exist if it weren’t for the fantastic efforts of our friends at the TLC (The Land Conservancy of BC).   (more…)
