Club grateful for support

Community donations helped rebuild Penticton BMX Club track

Recently, a group of dedicated volunteer members of the Penticton BMX Club (both riders and parents of riders) spent several weekends redesigning and extending the BMX track located at Lion’s Park. The BMX club would like to say a great, big thank you to Patrick Buchanan, Shawn Whitty and Jeff Babuin for donating their time and energy to this track rebuild.

As we are a non-profit club, the rebuild of the track would not have happened without the support of the community and local businesses.

On behalf of the Penticton BMX Club, I would like to thank the following businesses for their extremely generous provision of equipment and materials: Barry Beecroft Fuel Distributors; Cantex Paving; Pacific Rim Equipment Rentals; P&E Lumber; Quality Plumbing; Valley Bobcat Services; Westhills Aggregates; and Westminster Equipment Rentals. We would also like to thank the City of Penticton for their ongoing support of the BMX club.

We hope that the newly designed track will be enjoyed by cyclists in the community. BMX racing season begins again in April 2012.

Kathryn Golbeck,


Penticton BMX
