Patches, pins, swag over the years

Routes over the years   Courtesy of, and many thanks to Chris White, and Reuben B. Friesen. The Routes project was a LOT of work.

Plaques, Over the Years.    I cannot thank Dannie Fox enough for taking the time to photograph all of his and Barbara Fox's plaques.
                We are missing only 1976 - 1977, 1979 - 1982 now. 


“Hi Brian,     There were no plaques in the early years.

Normally there was a book, magazine that was supposed to be made and sent out
 to the riders that contained the riders pictures and pictures
 made during the ride and banquet, 
 but most of the time that wasn't even done.   Dannie Fox”
