|Biggest news this year is

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 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.
