ATTACK OF DANGER BAY 10 By Bricin Lyons
Here we are, a decade of Attack of Danger Bay and 10 years of great support from the business community, Pender Harbour ambulance crews and the residents of the race hill. This year is the most exciting for me ever as the event organizer. It is the reunion year and we’ve added a Master’s class to the event as well as “Danger Bay Daycare!”
For this year’s race we ask everyone to please leave all drugs and alcohol at home. This is a family event and we must respect the local residents on the race track that have young families and as well as anyone who might want to come and enjoy a nice day with none of this nonsense. It is very important for spectators to take the free shuttle buses to race. We can’t have any parking at or around the event for emer-gency purposes. Shuttle buses leave the Oak Tree Market every 15 minutes starting at 8 a.m.
Please ride them and tip and thank the drivers — they have do-nated their time and money for your enjoyment. The event couldn’t take place without them. Thanks Opie and Larry Curtiss. Attack of Danger Bay would also not happen without the help of Irene from John Henry’s, the Lions Club, our campsite security, Pender Harbour Rotary, the Oak Tree Market gang, race hill resi-dents, race day and local volunteers, Cheryl Jensen and the Pender Harbour ambulance crew and all the sponsors and supporters.
Attack of Danger Bay takes more than 50 volunteers to make it come together — thank you so much everyone, it’s been a blast. See you Sunday, May 22, rain or shine. This is a free event for everyone but bring some cash to support it by buying an event T-shirt or hoodie.
Also the Oak Tree Market will have breakfast and lunch to fill you up and we have longboarding companies selling boards and helmets at great prices. YeeYhaaawwww!
