Cross on the Commons - A Cross on the Rock EventCross on the Commons

The only new event for #COTR2017 takes place in Qualicum Beach at the Civic Centre. The course is centered around the various playing fields adjacent to the Civic Centre. Expect lots of grass (probably wet and slippery), not much elevation, sections of single track, a BMX track (ridden backwards) and some sand pits.

The Ravensong Swimming Pool is only a hop-skip- and-jump away so a great family location....more info

Music on Sunday at The Old School House Arts Centre - Stephen Hardy Palmer

A not-to-be-missed, Gatineau-based traveling (throughout Canada and the U.S.) troubadour who sings about life and simple pleasures with all the unhurried authority of a quiet and simple folk-singing road-survivor who is sometimes compared to Hoyt Axton, Leonard Cohen, or John Prine. Stephen will enchant and entertain us with his superb guitar playing, wide-range of songs (including fun sing-alongs), resonant voice, and engaging banter (that always has his audiences in stitches).
