Thanks for the post, it bought back a lot of memories from my time there ... almost could not recognize a few of the faces as I know them as they look now and forgot what they looked like back then. 


Yer welcome!


There is a new "ex-CHEK employees only" FB group which I can't join in spite of the fact dad was a "face" of CHEK TV back in the 60's, having done everything from hosting "Club 6", to weekend reporter-newsreader, voice over, master control etc., all at the old Epson Dr location.


Interestingly since time is passing most of the posts and posters on this new group seem to go back no further than the early-80's probably because most ex-staff today who are posting arrived long after dad, Frank Bond, Andy Stephen, Ida Clarkson etc were roaming the halls. You should search it out and join. Probably lots of folks on there you know.....

This spring Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation (MMFN) will be opening the doors of their new hotel, Baymont by Wyndham, previously known as the Gold River Chalet, alongside new tourism information services aiming to bring more visitors to the region.


Gold River Chalet closed its doors in April of 2023, according to the hotel manager Rohinton (Roy) Kharadi. Over the last year the building underwent “complete renovations,” he noted.


“Total wow,” said Kharadi, when asked what past hotel visitors can expect with new renovations.


The hotel is now pet friendly with air conditioning and heating, while the rooms underwent complete renovations. Previously with only four kitchen units, they have now jumped to nine, with the addition of a meeting room, a large new suite, and two accessible rooms, he shared.


Additions are inclusive of a restaurant, gym, and hot tub.


Kharadi expects the Baymont by Wyndham to be among the “go to” places in Gold River.

Since Chek upgraded their Roku and Apple TV last week, it's impossible to stream the most recent daily news. From now on, it's yesterday's news... tomorrow.
