|It was a nice night for a supper in the park and a cruise.|
It turns out that the cruise was very short as it was only 5 blocks in length however the tour was very interesting
as we visited the manufacturing plant of Riversong Guitars.
|Doesn't look like anyone brought supper tonight|

Mike Miltimore owner
welcomes us to his manufacturing plant
|Mike found that some of the tools he needed he had to design himself.|
He employes seven employees on a full time bases.
|Mike says that he trys to use as much as possible the different natural woods from British Columbia|
in his guitars making them a product of the province.
It is surprising how many private and unique businesses are operating here in Kamloops.
With out our Thursday Cruise Nights we may never learn about them.
|Mike had a guitarist come in to |
play one of his guitars for us.
Mike is pleased that his guitars are now getting world reconition by western singers.
Mike has also been presented with an award of recognition from the Federal Government for the achievement of his business.
Cruise Night Poker
the past Ernie and Marg McNaughton have looked after a poker game on our Cruise Nights.
Cards would be given out at the start, then part way through and at the
end of the Crusie Night.
The pot was always split between the
best and worst hand.
Ernie says when it came to make the pay outs some have gone home so it
became a chore rather than fun.
So unless someone else wants to run it there will not be anymore
Cruise Night poker hands.
