The celebrations started in Victoria with a fishing stag party, where Derek did his duty as best man by hooking a salmon for the great wedding-eve barbecue in Stockdill's garden


Neil continued to volunteer as
First Responder at home, and both as instructors in the handicapped ski program at Owl's Head, ski area.

We again started the year with Christmas and New Year in Arizona with Helen's mother, Derek and Michael. which included a mix of partying and mountain biking and hiking the local mountains
We had a ski trip to Whistler in Spring, with stops in Calgary and Golden, BC en route to visit friends and ski too. 
Derek is still teaching in Calgary, and gets into the mountains on weekends. 
Michael's law practice in Vancouver is still going well








In April Neil headed to Scotland to get Milvina in the water, with Helen arriving in early May, after organising family things at home.
