The judg­ing por­tion of Canada’s MOST Rider Friendly Com­mu­nity Con­test has con­cluded and Drumheller is listed as a fi­nal­ist.

The con­test, spon­sored by Com­mu­nity Fu­tures Al­berta and cre­ated by Re­nee “Belt Drive Betty” Char­bon­neau, seeks to find the com­mu­nity that is most wel­com­ing to mo­tor­cy­clists. Holly Sor­gen of Com­mu­nity Fu­tures of Grande Prairie & Re­gion says it was tough to ad­ju­di­cate all the great en­tries.

“There were so many great nom­i­na­tions that it was tough to choose the com­mu­ni­ties but by us­ing the con­test guide­lines we were able to fi­nally nar­row it down to just 6 in the West and the 2 strong nom­i­nees from the East” says Sor­gen. “My hat’s off to all of the rid­ers and com­mu­nity lead-

ers who took the time to nom­i­nate the com­mu­nity of their choice! Sup­port­ing small busi­ness and ru­ral ini­tia­tives is im­por­tant to all Com­mu­nity Fu­tures of­fices across Canada!”

Three com­mu­ni­ties from the West and three from the East will be re­cip­i­ents of $1,500 ad­ver­tis­ing pack­ages with Belt Drive Betty Me­dia. Three from the West and three from the East will then move on to the semi-fi­nals. One lucky com­mu­nity will be crowned as Canada’s MOST Rider Friendly Com­mu­nity and will win a mul­ti­me­dia-mar­ket­ing pack­age val­ued at over $35,000.

Among the fi­nal­ists with Drumheller from the West are Fort Qu’Ap­pelle, SK, Kaslo, BC, Port Al­berni, BC, North Cowichan, BC and Nisku, AB.

Drumheller has al­ways been a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for rid­ers, and it’s tough to pick a week­end where there is not a group com­ing through on tour. Drumheller is also home to Mo­tor­cy­cle Madness, an an­nual rally that cel­e­brates ev­ery­thing mo­tor­cy­cle.
