One of the great things about writing this blog is being recognized as a go-to place for everything Kits-related. As a result, when residents come across something that they think might be of interest to their neighbours they tend to contact us to spread the word. We love that – so keep the tips coming.
Regular reader Moe emailed me earlier this week to find out more about this year’s Soap Box Derby. Unfortunately I had no news for him so I suggested that he contact the event organizer, the Kitsilano Chamber of Commerce. Moe heard back from the Chamber but the news is not good – they’ve decided to drop the event entirely and wouldn’t give him a reason why. What the @!#*?
This comes as a big surprise as the event draws a huge crowd every year and appears to be a great success for the community. Premier Gordon Campbell is a regular attendee and has even gotten behind the wheel in past years. If you’d like to let the Kits Chamber know that they’re making a mistake, be sure to email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Better yet, email Gord.
