Just one week away - The last but maybe the most important Trials event on our Calendar - when we remember our friends Peter Brown and Adrian Brown, both lost to cancer.  Ady came to Vernon, from London England, and rode his first event with us back in 1986 - the first ever Outlaw Trial.  - He soon graduated to the Expert Class, and was a regular rider at events in the Okanagan and the West Coast. - Sadly on a trip home to the UK, he discovered he had cancer, and elected to stay in England to get the operation, which at first seemed successful, but would later claim his life, at the young age of 51. - His ready wit, and sense of Humor added much to our local scene.

Peter Brown was also a Brit, and spent his early Trials years, competing on the West Coast, before moving to Summerland, where he hooked up with us, and became our “Right hand man” setting up the Outlaw Trials for many years. -

We spent a lot of time together, and it was a big shock, when he was diagnosed with Cancer, he was a short stocky chap, who seemed very fit.  -

Our memories of both these great friends will always linger in our mind.  We urge everyone to make the effort and attend the Trial in the Shuswap next weekend - a new location, with free camping and lots of great Natural sections - there will likely be a “Cook out” on the Saturday evening around the Camp fire - a time to reminisce about days gone by. -

As always, we will make a donation to the Cancer fund from the proceeds. - If you wish to know more about the Trial - you can get in touch with either Martin, Ross or myself  ( Yes we also have a kids class - so watch out for a couple of new wiz kids on little Beta Evos.)
