Over 125 CPABC Members, candidates, students, and their guests, attended the June 29, 2018 homegame between Vancouver Canadians and  Salem-Keizer at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium in Vancouver.

Cheers for the home team!

Before the game, attendees were treated to an all you can eat barbecue featuring hamburgers, jumbo sized hot dogs, macaroni and cheese topped with beef brisket, and southern fried chicken.  And, for those looking for something sweet, there was a well stocked self-serve fridge filled with a variety of ice cream bars and popsicles.

A special treat for the evening was watching CPABC Member and chapter leader Christine Woodington sing the national anthems of Canada and the USA.  Christine’s rendition of “Oh Canada” made us all #CPAproud.

The first pitch took place under grey clouds that threatened rain.  As the evening wore on though the clouds began to part and blue skies returned.

The home team was unfazed by the inclement weather and trounced the visitors 11 – 1. The play of the evening was a two-run home run by Vancouver Canadians player Brett Wright. Chris Lythgo caught the home run ball and he is pictured above surrounded by CPABC Vancouver Chapter leaders.

Incoming Chapter chair Matt Wong was front and centre at the Hey Y’all Porch with his easy to spot red cowboy hat.  Attendees included Chad Chang, chair of the CPABC Construction Forum, and staff from CPABC’s member engagement team including Lily Dayson, Stephanie Snowden and David Chiang.
