Thanks to the three waves of guests who broke upon our shores at the Pomeroy Hotel and Suites in Dawson Creek, B.C last night!
We enjoyed the fellowship, conversation and fun brought by all our guests. Early arrivals from Mountainview Safety and other local businesses including Faking Sanity Bookshop stayed until 8, when yours truly had to take a skype. Serendipitously, our intrepid friends from Hythe and Grande Prairie showed up shortly before I finished, and stayed until midnight, when a surprise set of visitors arrived fresh from a harrowing journey through the Pine Pass!
Several guests wound up staying and chatting through the night about fiction, the Galactic Armed Forces, space piracy and galactic terrorism,hy, Tolkien, astronomy and, of all things, bidets. (Not included in suite, this subject seemed a bit of a wild card, although probably not at two in the morning).
After a fine breakfast, some of our guests chose to partake of the pool, and we closed the door on our first successful Christmas party at noon today!
For all of our friends who could not make it, here is a gallery of pictures from the first part of the evening, before the lights gave way to candles and the wine flowed as freely as the conversation.
