We still need prizes for the Show & Shine (June 20), if your employer (or company) might have something to donate, please ask. I have a letter if they want a request in writing. We've been turned down by the 2 local airlines, so we need a draw to get people to come out.

Organizing is getting underway for the Last Putt Before Ya Freeze Yer Butt on Sept 9, let us know if you want to hlep out!
June 20 - Midnight Sun Run, a fun group ride under the midnight sun around Yellowknife. Starting with an SPCA BarBQ fundraiser and the Show & Shine ($20) at the YK Community Arena parking lot from 7-9pm then riding until midnight and stopping for a few photo-ops, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience! June 21 is a holiday in the NWT so you can sleep in the next day :) If you're looking at coming up, check out NWT Tourism site and the visit us page for more info and links, if you have specific travel questions, use the contact form here!
