So here we are, heading into another weekend, and another scorcher, but at least we haven’t heard of anymore wild Fires in our area, (touch wood) - However, I just saw on the news that there is a new one burning in the Richmond district near Vancouver.

We are getting quite a lot of smoke drifting up from the South, where the big fire near Peachland continues to burn - We have to feel for the firefighters working in the extreme heat and long hours.

Of course, it isn’t just our Province where the extremely hot weather is causing problems, over in the UK, they have posted record temperatures, and a noticed another event was cancelled because of grass fires in the area. - In California a huge fire near Redding has caused evacuations.
==========================================>

Looking ahead to the month of August - We don’t have any events planned in Central BC, because of the fire hazard, , but we will be attending the ATRA Trial at Rocky Mountain House on August 12th  ( scroll down for poster & directions) and I see the New Trials club in Ontario has a big event also planned for the end of next month.

This is Mike King from Tatla Lake in Northern BC - Mike owns White Saddle Air, using a couple of helicopters for Fire fighting duties, plus he has a nice collection of old British bikes - he just picked up this beauty, a 1955 Triumph 500.

Back in the mid 1990’s - Barry and myself went up to his place to put on a Trials school, as he had some local interest - a long drive -  5 hours straight West of Williams Lake.
