Pacrim 2013 wrap up

While the weather wasn’t entirely ideal on Saturday (but, hey, it didn’t rain!) Sunday was simply gorgeous down at Vanier Park and the BCKA would like to thank everyone that came out. Often club members don’t end up getting many pictures because we’re usually busy flying. However, Wayne Worden sent this flickr set into us, they are great pictures!
