Friday BTWW updates and prize winners

May 31, 2019

The sun was shining on us at Boyce-Gyro Park this morning as we enjoyed delicious breakfast wraps and coffee from Urban Fare! Thanks to Kelowna Cycle for the bike tune-ups, the MS Society for the wine draw and info about the MS Bike – Okanagan Experience, and Modo for the fun bean bag toss and info about car sharing in the Okanagan. 

We had a lot of great performances at the Tire Toss this morning, with the furthest successful throw at 21.5 feet! Ben Fecht will be invited to compete for prizes from Kettle River Brewing in the finals TONIGHT at Prospera Place starting at 5 p.m.
