Team BC Family Liaisons

Our thanks to the parents who have volunteered to serve as sport-specific Team BC 2016 Family Liaisons! These knowledgeable parents have previously attended National Games, and they will help keep families and friends in Corner Brook in the loop about Games details and updates related to their sport. They are great sources of expertise for families with questions about Team BC and the Games.

Note re: Lower Mainland airport terminal

This is a charter flight located at 4360 Agar Rd. To get there, head towards the Vancouver International Airport South Terminal, but do not turn in there. Instead, continue down the road past the Flying Beaver Pub. On your right will be Agar Road. 

You are headed to the Landmark Aviation building (pictured at right). Please note you want to go to the WEST Main Building.

There is adequate parking but it is $4.00/hour. The concern is that the terminal itself is very small and by the time we get 150 athletes plus luggage in there, it will be tight - so at the departure we ask for goodbyes to be quick to let us get the athletes processed and on to the plane in time.

However, upon the return we welcome fanfare! Just please note that we will have shuttles trying to help move our team members out who have connecting flights and buses to catch.
