Bikes against Bullies 2015 - Trev Deeley Motorcycles - Ruby Creek Art Gallery - Amanda Todd

Wow what an emotional day for all

It was a crazy ride to say the least, mother nature, you've rained 2 out of our 3 years now.  If your pattern is on track then no rain next year

We're all in this together and open public conversation regarding mental health, suicide and bullying of any type is key.  Thank you everyone for your support and helping to spread the word Pssst...bullying is out! Pass it on

For those of you that could not make it, here are the highlights

The ride started at Trev Deeley Motorcycles  They have been very generous to us from the start and came on board as a sponsor in our 2nd year, part of the family they are, smooch

Once we left Trev's it was onto our second location Ruby Creek Art Gallery in Agassiz.  We were honored guests of the Skawahlook First Nation and they've come onboard as a sponsor, hugs

We rocked out to tunes from Lost and Loaded


Salmon BBQ, nom, nom

Our silent auction tables were full to the brim with very generous donations, thank you tons all donors

Gerald Charlie need I say more...hell yes, fabs

Carol Todd, you have turned an absolute tragedy into meaning for us all.  We adore you and your positive words.  I'm certain Amanda is your biggest fan

The Git Hayetsk Dancers brought life to a native drum that Amanda made

The cheeky one that steals purses and cameras

 Thank you EVERYONE, till we meet again

Vancouver Folk Music Festival 2015 - Globedater, electronicGIG, Dark Works Fotos

Was super excited to be asked by my dear friend Ken from electronicGIG to join him covering media at The Vancouver Folk Music Festival.  He also recruited Rob from DarkWorksFotos

It was my first hands on gig in the music industry .... LOVE IT!!!!!!

Kudos to The Vancouver Folk Festival from the big to the very small, I saw nothing but smiles

It was exciting to walk by a stage and think OMG that is brilliant, run back to the media tent, request an interview and hope that performer cruises over and grants your interview.  I was so lucky, everyone I wanted to meet was warm, funny and generous with their time.  The only artist I regret not meeting is Hawksley Workman.  Since it was my first time I didn't realize he was only performing opening night and would not be in the park the following days

Next year I'm certain we could interview every performer between us

Ken and I decided to create a short intro clip as we updated on FB and Twitter non stop throughout the festival and wanted viewers to see who we are.  On electronicGIG FB we refer to ourselves as KB and KC so followers know who posted

Giving our team the pep talk on the beach: have fun, enjoy, partaaaaaeeee

Girl don`t pack light

Here is my montage of the 3 days

Organizer Linda Tanaka was my first interview.  I am literally compelled to meet anyone involved in putting together such a large scale event so seamlessly

Next up Jasper Sloan Yip, good old hometown boy.  He is fabulous

This one is so adorbs Lindi Ortega.  Yep that's me, did a great job picking the thumbnail on this one, whew, she looks scared

Had the best interview with Grace Petrie but lost it, yikes technical difficulties Batman.  I love her teeth, Ken loved her choice in shoes

Unfortunately we lost an interview Ken did with The Once
We seemed to run into them a few times over the 3 days, their sound is sweeeeeet

Ken was thrilled to interview Son Little, you can catch his interview here

These two are super cute and sound like angels and sexy as all get out

So we could find eachother in the dark, dorks

 My headband and shoeless sandals from Meaningful Cuddles were a huge success

We brought our Amanda Todd Stay Strong bracelets to show our support.  You can get yours here

Met a great lantern gal, she visited with us everyday as the lantern shack was right beside us

Last day and Ken got a bit of heatstroke so chilaxing

Signing off. (no this is not us) I almost witnessed boobage

At this point we`ve run out of batteries for 2 cameras and 3 camcorders, down to the ipad

See ya later alligator
