17 Wing Air Base Newspaper: “Fatbikers Ride to Remember SAR Tech MCpl Alfred Barr”

The 17 Wing Winnipeg Air Base “Voxair” Newspaper 21 Mar 18 Edition has an article called “Fatbikers Ride to Remember SAR Tech MCpl Alfred Barr” based on the reporter Martin Zeilig interviewing me and using a few of my pictures.Voxair 21 Mar 18 - Fatbikers Ride to Remember SAR Tech Sgt Alfred Barr - 1Among the quotes he used were references to our excellent Leaders Team (including our British friend Patrick Stevens from Sweden) and key supporters Robert Paige of Xtreme Sports Medics and Dave MacDonald of ICSOS.

He did not quote my mentioning of how important was Kevin Champagne‘s snowmobile and sled support for transporting key supplies out to our camp and back!   He also mentioned our American friend Thomas Woods who joined us, but obviously misplaced your specifics Thomas).

The Voxair also included a colour picture with a double line of fatbikers riding across the lake.

They mistakenly mention in the caption that “Major Tom Kolesnik ‘leads’ the fatbikers …”, when in fact at the lead of the line of riders is Kurt Lehmann and Rick Shone.
