2019 Bullhead Derby
The 2019 Annual Bates Beach Bullhead Derby was a great success again this year. Held on the Sunday of the August long weel end, the weather gods were smiling on us all, as the seas were calm and the sun was radiant. There were 16 participants ranging in age from 8 months to 12 years. All the registered participants caught bullheads with Anton catching the first one measuring 16.0 c.m. in a record 6 minutes of Bella ringing the bell to start the friendly competition. The largest length of bull head was caught by 4 year old Nolan at 21.9 c.m. so he claimed the trophy this year. Congratulations. Other notable sizes were Anna, 10 years with a 19.5 c.m. and third biggest was Jobernal at 19.1 c.m. The kids enjoyed hotdogs, drinks and each claimed a prize and the campers in attendance enjoyed cake. See you in 2020!!
Canada Day Fun
For Canada Day 2019, the cake cutting was on June 30th, Sunday, as the mass exodus occurred on the holiday Monday. The camp was bustling over the long weekend with families from here in the Comox Valley, other parts of the island and the brave travellers who journeyed from the mainland and jockeyed for spots on the ferry to and from the island. The weather was cooler, in the low 20's, but pleasant and sunny for the Saturday and Sunday. We have a busy season ahead with our retuning customers and newer ones every year. Welcome to all and enjoy your summer holidays!
