James Bond Monte Carlo FUNdraiser

Take an airport hanger, some select styling vehicles, and a plane then add in the ‘James Bond’ theme with Vegas style games with live entertainment and you have an epic of sorts FUNdraiser!

Thanks to the Rotary Club of Sidney By The Sea, funds raised will go to help with the North Saanich Freeride Bike Park, something close to my heart.

What started as a few mounds of dirt that certain mother’s (me for instance) would allow their kids to go and hang out at with their bikes for hours on end during the summer, has transformed into the goal of become a World Class Cycling Destination for people of all ages and skill levels. Pretty cool I have to say.

Development of pump tracks and dirt jumps takes skill, machines, labour and money. Lots of it. Much has already been done. But more work is needed. In jumps Rotary and voila, a FUNdraiser ensues and last night true fun was had by all. Complete with the live jet landing and bringing in two gents (I heard one was the owner of the hanger) in themed James Bond style gaggled with two babe-alicious runaways.

I spent the evening as a volunteer at the crown and anchor wheel of fortune. Amazed at the humour and spirit which all that attended brought with them.

Thanks Sidney By The Sea Rotary! Great idea, can we do it again next year?!
