Traditionally, A North West Meet is a weekend event, that is mainly a social event, where members of the North West Healey Community can get together and enjoy themselves and do what they want.
Again, traditionally, very few organized events are held other than the Friday Meet and Greet and the Saturday Banquet.
This Meet will follow that format with a few organized events and include suggestions for participants to allow them to enjoy themselves at their leisure and meet with old friends.
Because of the Pandemic, it has been 3 years since we have been able to get together as a group and enjoy our relationships and meet up with old friends. Hopefully those days are past.
Through the years Harrison Hot Springs has been the location for 2 other meets and from the reactions of the participants it is a location that was very much enjoyed.
We hope that the unique location of the Harrison Hot Springs Resort will again appeal to everyone.
For those who wish to arrive early on Thursday, the Old Settlers Pub is an excellent location to meet for dinner and a few libations. This Pub is located on the main road into Harrison and is well signed.
They will be expecting some folks to arrive for dinner. Please arrive as close to 5:30 PM as you can to hold our reserved tables.
There are 2 main routes to get to Harrison Hot Springs.
The most often used is via Highway #1, taking exit # 135 to Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs. , then North on Highway # 9 . Following road signs will ultimately bring you to the Resort.
The second route is less busy and more rural and to some, more appealing. That route follows Highway 7 from Mission, on the North side of the Fraser River.
A map has been included. Follow the signs to the town of Agassiz, then continue through the town to Harrison Hot Springs

For our American visitors
There is one item of note that you should be aware of. The Canadian Border Agency requires you to complete an ArriveCan App. This is an App that you complete online prior to entering Canada.
It is not difficult and, unfortunately, is a requirement to cross the border. To download this App, go to https://www.canada.ca/en/border-services-agency/services/arrivecan.html Full detailed instructions are included on the site.
This App should be completed on your phone. Please ensure that you are going to the Government of Canada website and not a third-party website which will try to charge a fee for completing the app. The link above is to the correct site.
Remember that all prices are in Canadian Dollars which is very much to your advantage.
Currently the US Dollar enjoys a 25-30% premium. When you charge something on your credit card, it will be in Canadian dollars, however your statement will reflect the US dollar amount.
