Harold Bridge Bursary
Part of Harold Bridge's legacy to the club was a donation to help new riders get to Paris Brest Paris. Here are the particulars of the Harold Bridge Bursary. Harold was one of the earliest BC Randonneurs (he was member #9) and one of our most devoted volunteers. He died in April 2015. [EF]
If you’re a first-time PBP-er, wanting to go to France next year, you may be eligible for a bursary, given in memoriam of one of our longstanding club members, Harold Bridge.
Amount Awarded on PBP Years: $1000
· Any member going to PBP for their first time
· Have completed a Super Randonneur series In the year preceding PBP
· Volunteered in some capacity in the year preceding PBP
Application Deadline/How to Apply:
In the year prior to PBP, (in this case, 2018!) interested applicants must put their name forward one week prior to the AGM.
At the AGM in the year preceding PBP, an applicant’s name will be drawn at random and announced.
As a draw we eliminate the need for subjective criteria, open the award to as many people as we can, and provide a chance for all to honor the memory of Harold.
Additional: A PBP 2019 Recipient has been selected:
At the 2018 annual general meeting (& social ride & banquet) the 2019 recipient of the Harold Bridge Bursary was selected using a draw between three applicants. The winner was Jacquetta Benard from Kelowna, who will receive $1000 to help defray the cost of participating in Paris Brest Paris 2019. The other hopefuls were Étienne Hossack and Kyle Oxborough.
