Members are reminded that the World Airline Road Race (WARR) will be held this year in Calgary, Canada, on 24 September: www.worldairlineroadrace.com. Chief Marketing/Events Officer, Silva Kandiah, has contacted the chair of WARR with a view to WACA perhaps hosting joint events together in 2024 and beyond.

Past President of the Vancouver Interline Club, Nigel Cole, advises that he and other members of the Club recently enjoyed a sponsored afternoon tea courtesy of Perx Interline Vacations on board a recent cruise the Club undertook on the Crown Princess. To mark the occasion each member on the cruise received a complimentary travel bag courtesy of Vancouver Interline Club. All in all, Nigal says, it was an excellent event for our members who participated in this group cruising experience.
