BVC membership, we are looking to find people willing to take some junior riders in for a few days for the Nov 11-13 camp/race. The best bet would be for a family that has a son or daughter participating in clinic. If you are able to house someone please let me know and I can add you to my list and pair you up if we have a request. Cheers, Jeremy
