This is the year of repeats. Last year's winner is also this year's: Karen Love, who paints vibrant landscape portraits that are detailed and seem to be shimmering in liquid. We wrote the same thing last year because if Pemberton is so keen on repeating itself then so are we. What's good for the goose and all that jazz.
Event of the Season
Even though the Two Acre Shaker was better than last year and more fun than a day at Chuck E. Cheese, the Slow Food Cycle has been voted the event of the season. That's probably because it promotes health and locally cultivated food and was a fun family activity. These are all excellent points. The Shaker was the second most celebrated event of the season. Maybe next year Pemberton will combine the two and create the Two Acre Cycle, y'know, for the lazy folk.
There was no clear winner in this category, as each entry received only one vote and none of the quotes entered were accurate. There were, however, two references to "the HST sign," referencing (we think) Jordan Sturdy's removal of the HST sign from near his property.
That golden quote is: "In retrospect it was certainly an error on my part to pick it up and touch it. It was an error on my part to touch it at all and I should have left it in the ditch. You can be quite certain that that's what I will do in the future."
Yes! Great! Awesome! What love we all have for Sturdy, that maverick mayor.
Again! Again last year's winner wins this year! Papa Josh, you own this town. You might as well run for mayor. You'll take this town to the top! No one can defy your "funky grooves" or whatever. You'll win this election! Do it Papa, please: run for mayor.
SPORTS AND RECREATION
Favourite Pemberton Athlete
Ashleigh McIvor didn't have the best season to follow up her Olympic victory, as one of the many athletes that were temporarily destroyed by an X-Games ski cross course that was a little too burly to be safe.
McIvor was having a good season before that, with a silver and bronze medal in World Cup competition. But this wasn't her first injury and she put it behind her almost right away - heading to Hawaii to rehab on her road bike after deciding that ripping her snowmobile through the Pemberton backcountry was probably the wrong way to recuperate.
