2013 MEMBERSHIP/TOONIE PRIZE:
AND THE WINNER of $500.00 IS............
David Parkinson, a life-long bicycle rider, is the winner of the PRCA 2013 Season Finale Grand Prize Draw!
How did he win? He became a member of the PRCA. It was just that easy!
With a membership this year, each rider's name was entered into the Grand Prize Draw. Additional entries were gained for each time a member attended one of the PRCA's four, Toonie Rides. The Grand Prize was a collaboration between the PRCA and
local bike shop Suncoast Cycles. The PRCA put up $250 and Suncoast Cycles owners Frank & Wendy Chrinko matched the funds.
David isn't certain what he'll be using the Suncoast Cycles Gift Certificate for, but some of the options he mentioned were a new bicycle trailer or maybe even a new bike! Either way, as someone who has never owned a car, he said he will use his purchase on some of the new cycling infrastructure which the City of Powell River and the Powell River Regional District are starting!
