Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival - Visit to Macaloneys Distillery
Victoria
As part of our attendance at the Victoria Highland games , one of the Victoria Highland Games sponsors hosted us for a tour of the brewery and distillery at Macaloneys Distillery in Victoria on Sunday, May 22nd. Macalonys Distillery is founded by a true Scot, Graeme Macaloney. They brew Twa Dogs beer, a collection of Keekin' Glass and 3 other specialty beers and distill a fine Scotch, their Calendonian Whisky.

Here are photos of our visit and Graeme Macaloney describing how they produce their prize winning Scotches..

Battle of Ste Foy Rememberance Dinner
Bessborough Armoury, Vancouver
The dinner was the first to be held at 15 FD RCA since the pandemic shut down in March of 2020. We had in attendance 33 guests and members, including LCol. Nick Watts, CD, Commanding Officer of 15 Fd Regiment RCA, who spoke on the current status of training and the unit as well as on the future opening of the mess for the regular weds lunches. He acknowledged the retirement of Mrs Lum, our long term caterer, and advised that they would be obtaining a new one shortly.

Our dinner was well catered by Lori's Catering from Harrison Hot Springs who provided a well received Roast Beef Buffet style dinner with excellent soup, salad, and all the trimmings including choices of desserts. Members enjoyed the opportunity to speak face to face at a social function once more. A good time was had by all.

The OC, Maj Barrett, spoke on the Battle of Ste Foy and updated all on the up and coming activities of the Garrison including at the Victoria and Coquitlam games. Steve, our excellent and faithful server of grog, being our Regimental Bartender also returned and as the Frasers noted, so did his hair.
