Two Prime Timers clubs met for a brief visit, sightseeing, and of course lunch, on June 11, 2018, in Nanaimo, British Columbia.

The Prime Timers Nanaimo Club organized a group of 7 men with 5 cars to transport the Vancouver Prime Timers group of 18 men to a local restaurant for lunch and afterwards to tour several communities including Ladysmith and Chemainus. The visit to Vancouver Island's Nanaimo area was brief but packed with sight-seeing drives and explanations provided by our gracious hosts, the Prime Timers Club of Nanaimo.


Club President Wiley Fargen and Event Coordinator Doug MacIntyre arranged for Nanaimo members to sit at each table for lunch and to share information about their club and highlights of Vancouver Island. Doug was instrumental arranging lunch at The Pantry Restaurant.

The Vancouver Group had only a short visit between the scheduled ferry crossings, but had a full day, beginning by taking the regularly scheduled express bus from Downtown Vancouver to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. They then boarded the 11:00 am ferry, travelling 30 nautical miles, to arrive at the Vancouver Island Departure Bay Ferry Terminal where they were met by members of Prime Timers Nanaimo.

Prime Timers Nanaimo Club was founded only two years ago and has grown from 30 to over 61 members serving the many Vancouver Island communities north of Victoria. The area covered stretches from approximately Cowichan Bay in the south to Sayward in the north, a driving distance of 288 kilometres (179 miles).
