Christmas Party 2019
November 30th at the Mayne Inn
President Louis Vallee welcomed a sold out crowd of AMIB members to its annual Christmas Dinner on November 30th at the Mayne Inn Bistro. Guests were served dinner of either salmon or chicken, complete with gourmet appetizers and dessert.
Santa and Mrs. Claus made an appearance and handed out door prizes. The evening ended with each table choosing a Captain who was in charge of solving, along with his/her crew a tricky crossword puzzle all about Mayne Island, boating, and even people in the room.

Proposed Anson Road Dock
At the April 11th, 2019 Mayne Island meeting CRD prepared visuals of plans for new Anson Road dock and for changes Miners Bay Dock. Ted Robbins announced that quotes will go out after completion of the archaeological and environmental studies.
Anson Road dock will have 720 linear feet of dock space compared to the current 180 linear feet at Horton Bay. The current Horton Bay dock will be dismantled and replaced by the Anson Road dock after AR is completed.
There will be parking for 15 vehicles plus a turn-around.
The current T-float (in dark brown) will be replaced by a concrete float (in green) in order to lessen the effects of ferry wake.
