Comox Valley Cycle Club - Omnium fundraiser for Lac Megantic‏

Hello everyone;
We have our Omnium on this weekend starting with the criterium Saturday morning and the time trial in the afternoon.  Hopefully most club members will be there to either race or  help out.
As you are aware the Quebec town of Lac Megantic was devastated by a train explosion last weekend.  A number of our club members have a personal connection with Lac Megantic as Junior and Para Road Nationals were held there the last two years.  Elite Nationals were lthere last year.  Gillian, Jordan, Joanna, Kia, Simon and myself have all been there.  It hits pretty close to home when half the criterium course is gone because the course went down the main street which was destroyed in the explosion.
Cycling Canada has undertaken a fund raising effort to assist the people of Lac Megantic.  Kelly and Joanna have received a donation of food from Quality Foods in Comox for a BBQ after the time trial tomorrow at the Dove Creek Hall.  We will be doing hamburgers, salads, drinks and some prizes.  Price will be $10 or whatever you feel able to donate.
Please either stay after your time trial, you have finished volunteering or come down.
The BBQ will start about 5:00 pm.  The Time Trial starts about 4:00 pm and will continue till about 5:45 pm so it should be a good time for most people.
Hope to see everyone there.
