Cancelled – Party at Jericho with Nestor and Alumni Longboat Races

Update Sep 30.2016 – Unfortunately, we have had to cancel this year’s event.


So it turns out that this year is actually Nestor’s 49th year of involvement with UBC and not his 50th.  In any event, while the Salute to NK’s 50 years will be delayed by a year, we’re still going to be having a party this fall and hope that you’ll join us.
