Association of the Savary Island Committee
Dear Members of ASIC
and the Savary Island community,

In this issue
1. Time for Savary Island Calendar Photographs.
2. A Current Licence and Insurance is Mandatory for All Vehicles.
3. Woodstove Exchange Program 2020.
4. Rats, Garbage, and Green Cones.
5. More Than Grading.
6. Membership.

1. Time for Savary Island Calendar Photographs. Do you have a favourite Savary photo you would like to have printed in ASIC’s 2020-2021 fund-raising calendar? Every year ASIC selects 13 Savary shots for the 12 months and cover of our calendar that starts and ends in summer, and awards a calendar for each chosen photo. Please send us your large picture files, minimum 1920 pixels wide, in horizontal (landscape) format, keeping each e-mail to a maximum size of 10MB to make sure they are deliverable. Photos that do not meet the minimum resolution will not reproduce well and cannot be used. Please send your submissions by the deadline of March 21 to asic@savaryisland.org along with your name, contact information, and a statement confirming you own the photo rights and, if selected, you authorize ASIC to print the photo in the ASIC calendar and on ASIC’s web site. The calendars are expected to be available on island by the May long weekend. Thanks for your help and support.

2. A Current Licence and Insurance is Mandatory for All Vehicles. The RCMP has reminded ASIC that officers will be on island during the summer months and that the law will be enforced on Savary as it is on the mainland. They have made it clear that obtaining a current licence and insurance is mandatory for all vehicles, including golf carts and UTVs. Golf carts are legal on island but are subject to special restrictions and these limitations and conditions will be enforced by the RCMP (e.g. must have an operation permit, daylight hours only, drivers must have a driver\'s licence, must have insurance). If you are concerned about the regulations governing the use of any type of vehicle on Savary you can contact the Powell River RCMP. The alternative is having the rules explained by the officer while he/she writes a ticket.

3. Woodstove Exchange Program 2020. Here is a program that could benefit a number or Savaryites. The qathet Regional District is working to replace old smoky woodstoves that contribute particulate matter into the air with cleaner burning, more efficient models. Receive up to $550 to replace your non-EPA certified woodstove. Please contact qRD\'s Let’s Talk Trash team to find out more information about program requirements: 604-485-2260, info@letstalktrash.ca or visit qathet.ca to learn more. For more details, download WoodstoveExchange2020.pdf

4. Rats, Garbage, and Green Cones. Whether you’re on island for a couple of weeks, months, or longer, Green Cone Digesters (the device that eats all your food scraps and pet waste) are an easy and convenient method of reducing garbage, but also highly effective in reducing potential food sources for rats. In 2018, ASIC helped get out the message that qRD had purchased a bulk order of Green Cone Digesters which were made available to Savaryites. If you didn’t get one back then you may still be in luck. They still have around 6 green cones for sale from the qRD Let’s Talk Trash team for $150 per unit. There are an additional few that have minor damage that they can sell at a discount. Contact the team at 604-485-2260 ext 308 or info@letstalktrash.ca If we see interest from a large number of ASIC members, we will ask qRD if they might do another bulk order.

5. More Than Grading. Road grading isn’t scheduled until possibly May, but the pot-holes are multiplying and getting deep. We think that some preventative work needs to be done in some areas where the pot-holes are worst. Rain and snow meltwater on any road surface must have somewhere to drain, but there are a number of road sections throughout the island that are flat, where water just sits on the road. The road surface in those areas has degraded into an unavoidable sea of pot-holes and small ponds. The solution is to crown the road, and where required, create modest roadside ditches to catch the runoff so the road will remain dry and stable for a long time. ASIC will ask MOTI if in addition to grading this spring, they can address the drainage problems as well.

6. Membership. There is no fee, and all Savary property owners (on title) and their spouses/partners are eligible to be members of ASIC. Send your email, tel/cel, home and Savary addresses to asic@savaryisland.org or mail PO Box 222, Lund, BC V0N 2G0.

Doug Smith, ASIC Communications Chair

I have a propane fridge that was given to me last summer that was working great when I got it, then after two days it just seemed to stop working. It’s not that old, and I’m sure someone with a little experience could probably get it running again. It’s just another project I don’t quite have time for!! I can’t seem to remember the brand name, but if anyone is interested in fixing it or for parts please feel free to take it. It is sitting on a pallet under a black tarp at 1431 Tennyson. It’s been kept in dry storage since it was given to me. I will be taking it off the island otherwise. Please feel free to call or text if you have any questions.
