Along the Bulkley River Rec Site Trails is a mystery! A stash of peanuts, unopened, sits at the base of a conifer tree, whose lower branches have been removed! Any ideas?
Winter walks offer great opportunities to get outside, and these can be even more fun if you’re looking for geo-caches. The Bulkley River Rec Site has at least 9 (and more can be added at any time), including one that resembles a little bird house, hanging discreetly on a conifer tree.
Billed as the World’s Largest Treasure Hunt, there are over 2 million caches around the world, from easy to access, to challenging.
Virginia enjoys looking for caches and recording her success in the small log book in the cache; she also records her find electronically, on the global geo-cache website.

Over 50 came to Round Lake on Saturday, June 18, to paddle in the lake, share a sumptuous dinner together and then spend the sweet summer evening enjoying the sounds of music, as the children played in the water or paddled nearby. Loons called, eagles and osprey soared overhead as the moon rose over the hills, casting its buttery image on the water.

Between canoeing, sharing potluck and listening to fine music on the lakeshore, about 40 Bulkley Valley folk (and Mark and Diane, from Alberta) celebrated Round Lake Community Association’s 3rd Annual Summer Solstice Paddle, Potluck and Sing-along on June 21, the ‘longest’ day of the year.

Thanks to the Middleton Wakefield gang for choosing Round Lake Hall for their reunion this summer! The weather was wonderful and the hall and grounds were just right for them.
My friend and I had a lovely time exploring the recreation site. Found several of the geocaches, saw warblers and other birds and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Can’t wait to come back and explore the river trail. Thanks for all the great work. Cindy Verbeek, Houston
We have had a couple of weekends open up for bookings at Round Lake Hall over the summer. By clicking on the calendar on the main website, you can check which ones they are. We think it is a pretty perfect venue for a family weekend get together or a get away from your business place for an employee gathering. Call me (250 846 5296) with any questions!
Warm, sunny day with snow packed sufficiently that only boots were required. Walked most of the trails, then lit a bonfire at the picnic site along the river. Delicious, hearty, healthy shared food around the picnic table. A lovely way to spend a late winter day.
Just a heads up to potential bookers of Round Lake Hall. Prime weekends are going fast for 2014! There are 3 weekends in July 2014 still available and only 1 weekend left in August. I am thinking we should start having weddings on other days of the week like they do in Holland! In any case, if you are thinking of booking with RLCA next summer, please get in touch with me so we can get the paper work done! Judy at 250-846-5296 or 250 877 1422 firstname.lastname@example.org

Over the years, RLCA has hosted many coffee houses and kudos to Eric Anderson and Zita Conway who got us started on this journey. The latest coffee house at Round Lake Hall with Back Road Home and Juanita McIntyre played to an audience of more than 70 people! What a delight to listen to wonderful music and introduce our hall to many first time visitors. Our next coffee house is on Saturday March 9th with Gary and Cor van der Meulen and a host of other talented musicians who will be playing in the open mike slot. This proves to be another of those unforgettable Round Lake musical events!
Krista, from Telkwa, was on the lake with her family. Her small daughter had never stood on ‘frozen water’, so out to Round Lake they came to try that new experience. Jim brought his small daughter, Hannah, so they could skate on the rink by the hall. With his quad, Tom was pulling 4 kids on a saucer across the smooth surface. Mary, Stuart and Dina went twice around the lake on cross-country skis. And John had driven from Houston so he could launch his rainbow-colored powered parachute up into the blue skies. So many of us enjoying the sun, brisk air, winter vistas and company of others, in so many different ways!
We certainly appreciate all the feedback that we get about community events at Round Lake Hall. The dinners and coffee houses have been outstanding and even though New Year’s may have been a bit “laid back”, it was still a congenial atmosphere and kudos again to Al and Evelyn from Quick Eats for such an outstanding meal! In January if you stop by the hall, you will see alot of quilting being done by Heather and her friends. We have scheduled a “tech” potluck and practice where we hope to familiarize ourselves with more of the items we have for rent such as the proxima and sound system. Details are on the Round Lake calendar. You won’t want to miss the Coffee House on February 16th…again details on the calendar.
There is a skating rink on the lake by the hall that we hope will survive the upcoming thaw. A shovel is kept handy to those willing to do a bit of excercise! Happy winter!
