Sorry to miss celebration

Page 10 of 11

On any given day there are logging trucks, dump trucks, tractors pulling implements, trucks, campers and cars on this road. It is not a quiet country road.

The posted speed limit is 80 km/hr. It is not a matter of IF but WHEN there will be an accident.

There are a lot of riders who do ride on the right and are considerate of the other vehicles on the road. But as anyone who has driven up here knows there are also those riders who will not, even if riding three across, move over to let a car go by. I don't know if their spandex is too tight or their helmet is restricting blood flow to their brain, but if my car can't stop and I hit you, you will most likely lose.

This may sound to you like just another "Upper Valley" gripe session but it's not. I care.... I care about the safety of the two children that were in the back seat of my car, I care about the safety of the guy in his truck that had to hit the shoulder to avoid hitting me, and I care about the cyclists on their bikes enjoying this beautiful valley.

All I'm asking is that you do the same.

Giant Garage Sale a Big Success

The Rotary Club of Whistler Millennium held our second annual Giant Garage Sale in Creekside, along with a pancake breakfast. With over twenty tables of garage sale wares to browse through and delicious breakfast offerings for families on their way to the Whistler Arts Council's Children's Art Festival, the event was extremely successful and helped to raise funds that will be used for both community and international projects.

We would like to give a huge "thank-you" to the following organizations and individuals: Creekside Market, Whistler Blackcomb, Whistler Golf Club, Centerplate, Tourism Whistler, the Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler Arts Council, Dave Brown of Whistler Real Estate, Brian Brown of R.B. Brown Land Surveying Ltd., fellow Rotarians, garage sale participants, Pique Newsmagazine , the Question , SNAP Sea to Sky , and Mountain FM. We look forward to seeing you at next year's sale, which will once again be held on the Saturday of the Whistler Art Council's Children's Art Festival - rain or shine!
