SNOWTUBING AT CYPRESS MOUNTAIN スノーチューブ体験会 @ Cypress Mountain Ski Area
Feb 13 @ 9:00 am

Join us for our annual SnowTubing outing at Cypress Mtn. Thanks to the recent snowfall there should be plenty of powder on the slopes!

You’ll slide down their special hill and you don’t have to walk back up – there is a tube tow to save you the climb.

Car Pooling
We will arrange car-pooling on a first come, first serve basis (i.e., if someone RSVPs and can drive 3 people, the first three people who signed up get a lift.) Drivers are usually in short supply, so rsvp early! Please give your driver some money for gas and their time (you can decide a fair amount with your driver.)

Drivers are usually in short supply, so if you can drive, it is appreciated.
RSVP to hike@mokuyokai.bc.ca by Thursday Feb 11th. Please ensure your rsvp is firm, as last minute cancels make car pool planning difficult.
Please indicate:
1) Can you drive or do you need a lift?
2) Your phone number
3) Emergency contact: name and phone number

Join us for the Donwakai!
The Donwakai is Mokuyokai’s monthly pub night of networking, laughter and fun that brings together those who have a shared interest in Japan-Canada relations. At the Donwakai, you will meet approximately 80 people who have a strong connection to Japan: teachers, travellers, students, business people and others from Canada, Japan and elsewhere. You don’t have to speak Japanese to attend this event, but you should have a strong interest in or connection to Japan. Most of our participants have lived or traveled in Japan at some point in their lives. We also have Japanese-only table and one English-only table if you want to practice your language skills (the rest of the tables are whatever the participants are speaking). So if you want to network, share experiences about Japan, learn more about Mokuyokai or just meet like minded people, then don’t miss this event! The atmosphere is casual and feel free to invite a friend. Don’t forget your ID and please remember to tip your server.

This month’s Donwakai will be held at The Belmont Bar  located in downtown Vancouver at 1006 Granville Street, Vancouver (the corner of “Granville St & Nelson St”).

They will have a number of drink specials for us as well as a wide array of food choices. For smooth ordering we recommend you pay by cash.

In addition to the usual good company, conversations and networking this month will see the unveiling of Mokuyokai’s New & Improved Website!! Please join us for a fun evening with those who share an interest in Canada-Japan relations.
