Advent Calendar/Holiday Countdown

This Advent Calendar works just like any other regular calendar or countdown to Christmas/the holidays. This one starts on December 1 and ends on December 24, Christmas Eve. Each day one field/day is activated and clickable. Click on the number that corresponds to the actual date (e.g. on December 1, you click on the number 1, on December 2 on the number 2, etc.). Once activated, fields remain active/clickable/viewable/enjoyable. Fields that have not been activated yet are greyed out (and, yes, are a bit difficult to see). With the last day, the entire photo is in full colour (all fields clickable). To find the numbers faster, a photo of what the photo will look like is available at the bottom of the page, for easier navigation.

You will find photos, videos, links, and gifts behind the doors, among others a new copy of The Complete Book of Jaguar by Nigel Thorley – but behind which door?

Please bear with us if links do not work, formatting is not responsive on all (your) device(s) (check your browser settings), or downloading or linking is slow, and yes, the white numbers on the greyed-out surface are hard to discern (did we mention that already?).

Enjoy. Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays. Happy Unwrapping. May the wind be always at your back and your tree tall enough for a Jaguar.
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2020, wherever you may be.

Treasurer wanted

Doug Irving, who has been Treasurer and JOTI Registrar for four years, is resigning. We are looking for a new Treasurer, ideally with

  1. Organization skills
  2. Reasonable computer literacy
  3. Knowledge of computer spreadsheets
  4. Ability to retrieve data from internet websites
  5. Knowledge of simple budgeting and accounting techniques

You would be a member of the Board of Executive and participate in our monthly board meetings. Doug lives in Courtenay, so not residing in Greater Victoria is no deal breaker: You can participate via Facetime or Skype, no problem, and depositing cash and cheques is/was done by other board members here in Victoria – we work as a team. Doug Irving is happy to assist during the transition phase. Join us, it is fun.

If the above does not sound too daunting and you like numbers and spreadsheets, please reply to this email, to Secretary Adrian Small (250-642-6967), or to President Telse Wokersien (250-885-7391).
