Take it from that ol’ guy in the photo, “This is simply the best resource for hiking in Kamloops.”  🙂


Jun 06 – Aug 15 – Shoot with FOG at TRU

Thompson Rivers University has a Pagoda Tree – the only one in town. They also have a ‘Living Wall’. “A Living what?” you ask. The FOG knows! Find these Friends of the Garden any Wednesday night at House #10 on the TRU campus across from the University’s Activity Centre. Catch a Free Tour of the horticulture exotica including xeriscaped grasses, the Pagoda Tree and the Living Wall. Tours begin at 6:30 PM continuing to about 8 leaving you lots of time to catch the ‘Golden Hour’ at sunset. FOG will be conducting tours until Aug 15th. The Gardens are a perfect place to take your visitors or have a family picnic. All are welcome.
Parking is free after 5 PM and on Weekends. If you want to catch the early morning light the Weekend is likely your best bet, David Williams, Botany Professor Emeritus advises. Students are sleeping in so you have a clear field of the flowers and architecture and solitude to compose your macro shots. www.trufog.org or call 250-828-5426 and leave a message for more info.

Aug 12 or 19 – KPAC Summer BBQ


Our annual Summer get together for sizzling food under a sizzling sun happens this August Sunday the 12th., at Alanna’s.

UPDATE – Aug 11th. 9:00am

Hello KPAC members and friends,  The weather forecast for tomorrow ( 12th.) looks very wet and cool.  Since this is an outdoor event we have decided to reschedule to next Sunday,  August 19th at 3pm.

UPDATE – Aug 11th. 11:40am

It looks like many people are unable to attend next week so I think we should continue with bbq for tomorrow but if the weather looks really bad THEN we will reschedule.  I hate to mess with everybody’s plans but we don’t want to be soaked.  

I will email everyone tomorrow around 11 AM and let everyone know if the bbq is tomorrow or next week.  

Sorry for the confusion.   Angelina Soc. Dir. KPAC

Antique: Defined as a collectible object that has value because of its considerable age.

Yes I know we have a number of members who are valuable  and of “considerable age” but remember – we can’t collect them — or can we?
