La nueva muchacha Sidney teen off to Mexico Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

The strings on Sami Schurman’s violin will sing sweetly next year as part of a strings group. She’ll probably play a few different school sports, much like she did last year at Parkland secondary, and likely make some new friends. That’s where the similarities between Grade 10 and Grade 11 end for the 16-year-old. Well before her former classmates at Parkland are hitting the books in September, Schurman will be studying in Spanish, during school days that start at “I got on 7 a.m. in Ciudad Del Carmen, the phone and Campeche, Mexico. “I actually cried tears of started calling joy,” Schurman said of the everyone I knew.” day Rotarian Ian Morley called - Sami Schurman with the news. “Then I got on the phone and started calling everyone I knew.” Since Grade 9 she’s researched, waited and sought out the perfect exchange. With a passion for Spanish, that extends out of the classroom and into online courses, Schurman’s pleased with the Mexico assignment — it was after all one of her top five picks. The halls of Parkland fostered the exchange idea, with many international students coming and going each year, Schurman created a worldwide network of friends. It spurred the research that led her to the Rotary Club of Sidney. She applied, interviewed and in December got the call from Morley, the club’s student exchange chair, who said they found Schurman to be outgoing and capable. “When we pick students for the exchange we tend to look for someone that is going to be mature, selfreliant, and be able to deal with situations that may come up,” Morley said. “They are going to find themselves in situations where they’re dealing in a foreign language … and they have to be able to adapt.” The first adaptation for the teen will be the weather. Schurman figures she’ll miss the cool air, and is slightly concerned over how to handle the heat. Fortunately, choosing what to wear to school will be whittled PLEASE SEE: Becoming the new girl, Page A4

Riding high and dry

Most people are actively finding ways to conserve water. You can make a difference too. Lawns not watered in the summer will go dormant or ‘golden’. Lawns will green up again with the autumn rains.

Not only did Stelly’s secondary school grad Caitlyn Daniel enjoy this year’s dry grad activities, she topped off the year by winning the grand prize — a 1994 Eagle Talon. Daniel is shown here with Rick Rowlett of Cunningham’s (Fas Gas) and R and R Auto Repairs, who donated the vehicle. The dry grad celebration was held following the dinner and dance at the University of Victoria on June 30. Along with entertainment and door prizes, each grad attending the celebration was also given a one month membership to VI Fitness.

trade that his father did. “I’m getting older and doing less and less. Still I can’t leave it alone,� he said. “I like it. I live all by myself, my wife passed away last year from cancer so I’m all by myself. I don’t want to sit in the house all day watching T.V. so I love to be here and sit here and make a basket, and when I have some baskets then I go to the market.� A regular sight for years at the Peninsula Country Market at the Saanich Fairgrounds, Veld made the move to the newer North Saanich Farm Market to sell his wares. “It’s a big market there (at the Saanich Fairgrounds). I don’t need a big market. That little market is cosy, and the people are really friendly,� he said. While the numbers are fewer, the feeling of each woven piece of art brings him self satisfaction. “When [my fingers] get sore, then I made a good basket,� he said. “When I make a basket I say to myself ‘See I’m an old man but still I’m not useless yet’.� reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

News staff

Bert Veld didn’t want to be a basket maker. Least of all he didn’t want to be a perfectionist, and a basket maker — like his dad. But his dad made him work with his hands, and as he got older, Veld felt a bit of the bug and “played around with the stuffâ€? alongside his father in Holland. “My father had a small farm and I worked quite a bit on the farm as a kid during the war ‌ in 1950 all of a sudden my father passed away of a heart attack,â€? the Dutchman said. “I decided ‘I’m going to immigrate to Canada’.â€? The then 20-year-old wound up in Ontario, finding a job in municipal works. “I didn’t speak a word of English, but I learned,â€? Veld recalled. The dream of moving out to the West Coast eventually became a reality and he found work with the District of Saanich. During his retirement party, he was sad to learn, in a speech from his boss, that he’d inherited his father’s perfection gene as well. During a visit from his late brother, a basket maker who was still living in Holland, dad’s influence again came slipping into his life. “He kind of talked me into it, about 30 years ago,â€? Veld admitted. “I made the trip to Holland and I came back with willow cuttings to plant here.â€? His willow plantings give him quality basketweave material, but he also enjoys the hunt for wild willow in different shapes, colours and styles. “When I was in business I couldn’t fool around with this. But as a hobby, I can play around with this. Every type of willow works different and that is a challenge and it makes it nice, to have a hobby that is a challenge,â€? Veld said. “Wild willow, when you get it together, makes a really nice basket.â€? He picks willow in the winter, dries it and sorts

Swan Lake Sanctuary seeks crafty seniors Nature sanctuary sets up skill-sharing Natalie North News staff

Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary is getting crafty with plans for future growth. The sanctuary and educational centre is seeking seniors interested in teaching and learning handiwork of all kinds for its senior’s craft program. The primary focus of the federally-funded program is to see seniors with carpentry, textile and paper craft skills volunteer to pass on their skills to other seniors. The items produced, from birdhouses to bee condos to dried flower greeting cards, will reflect the conservational focus of the sanctuary, while using materials found on site. Robyn Burton, manager of administrative services at Swan Lake, says there’s also an inter-generational aspect to the program. “Seniors would be able to come and help kids put together a bird house (and) would pass on the knowledge that they had learned,� she said. “There’s a bunch of different levels to it.� The items will be sold in the nature house gift shop to support the program into the future. The program is made possible through a partnership with Saanich Silver Threads, where most workshops will take place. A quilting class is the first to be offered. Depending on the level of interest, the program should be selfsustainable by the end of the year. For more information or to volunteer, contact Burton or volunteer program co-ordinator Betty Leitch at 250-479-0211. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Don Denton/News staff

Betty Leitch and Robyn Burton show off a bird house and a bee condo as examples of items they hope to have seniors build through a new program at the Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary.

down, since there’s a uniform involved. And she won’t have long to be homesick, classes will start mid-August. Her parents won’t be coming out for a visit, but Schurman is calm and collected. “I’m not sure how I’ll handle it, because I’ve never really been away from home. I guess we’ll find out,� she said with a grin.

Schurman has spent a bit of time reading books about Mexico, and as much time using online resources to scope out the situation — including taking a ‘walk’ around her Mexican school’s neighbourhood. Already she sees the exchange providing opportunities. “This exchange has opened me up to the world,� she said. “I’ve always wanted to be fluent in another language. I’m hoping

by the time I get back I’ll be fluent in Spanish.� Then there’s the culture. Before her Aug. 3 departure, Schurman hopes to have stocked up on Canadian gifts for all the friends she expects to make. “It’s so interesting talking to exchange students at my school so I think it will be interesting to be the new girl,� she said. “I’ve never been the new girl.� reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Crack bust ripples across region Erin Cardone

On crack and gold

News staff

Behind the walls of an apartment on sleepy Simcoe Street, a dirty business operated. While seniors strolled by on the sidewalks out front, four people worked a crack-making cookhouse, according to Victoria police. “These guys (were) supplying to mid-level drug dealers,” said Const. Mike Russell. “They’d take that powder cocaine – that’s how it comes to B.C. here. It comes to a cook house and they convert it into something that can be smoked, rock or crack. Once they do that, it’s sold to (dealers).” For two months, Victoria police officers watched the apartment and gathered intelligence. On July 7, armed with search warrants, they entered the apartment and found evidence of a cook house: measuring cups, scales and baking powder. Also inside were two large rocks of crack, weighing about 60 grams each, plus more than a half-kilogram of powder cocaine, and a small amount of marijuana. Altogether, the drugs are estimated to be worth $30,000 on the street – and about double that amount when broken up and sold to consumers.

Crack sells for about the same price as gold. Both commodities trade at about $1,500 per ounce. “It’s quite remarkable,” said Sgt. Conor King, VicPD’s drug expert with the department’s focused enforcement team. He added the prices of both have steadily risen in recent years. The price of cocaine in powder or crack form depends on supply and demand, as well as conditions in supply countries, such as some South American regions and Mexico. The ongoing war against drug cartels in that country causes price swings.

At the apartment, a 37-year-old Victoria man and a 37-year-old Langford woman were arrested. “This is a large amount of drugs, certainly not the largest we’ve seen, but it’s going to make a dent in the local market,” said Russell. The quiet area of James Bay was never at risk – the cooks likely did most of their transactions away from the property and cooking crack is benign.

When powder cocaine is mixed with baking soda and microwaved, it becomes crack. As part of their investigation, police officers also had a search warrant on a Langford house. VicPD officers worked with RCMP to raid that house, although police refused to disclose the location to protect the identity of the suspects until charges have been approved. Inside the house, investigators discovered $25,000 in cash – the house acted as a store room for the cook-and-sell operation. Three vehicles found at that address were seized and could be transferred to B.C. Civil Forfeiture where they would be auctioned as revenue for the province. Two other suspects were arrested in a “high-risk takedown” on the Royal Oak offramp to the Pat Bay Highway. Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team officers identified a vehicle believed to be part of the cook operation and pulled it over. They arrested a 27-year-old man and a 24-yearold woman, both from Langford. Each of the suspects could be charged with possession of drugs and possession for the purpose of trafficking. They have all been released on promises to appear in court. ecardone@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

It’s summertime rain or shine Will the real Greater Victoria summer ever arrive? Many locals are wondering that as they look for ways to enjoy summer vacation at home with the kids, long weekends off or outdoor evenings during the longest days of the year. True, adverse weather isn’t impossible to avoid, and does put the damper on planned events. Rain last weekend didn’t drown the enthusiasm of the Despite the lack crowds gathered of sunshine, we’re at Beacon Park for the Summer Sounds faring okay here concerts, or slow the tide of Brentwood folks headed to the bay to enjoy Music in the Park on Wednesday. By and large, we are faring far better than say, Northern BC, which is reeling from landslides and road washouts resulting from heavy rain (see B.C. Views, this page). Visitors to the area haven’t been scared away by the weather. Tourism Victoria indicates the industry is doing quite fine this season, with visitor numbers up over last year — go downtown or browse the shops of Sidney and you’ll get a sense of that. Weather is one of those subjects we all have in common, making it the most popular conversation starter. But we all have a choice as to how we look at it. We can focus on the negative and lament the scorching hot days of summers past, the dearth of outdoor swimming opportunities and the way-late state of the produce growing season. Or we can be thankful for what we do have, which is a pretty darned pleasant climate that allows us to do a multitude of activities outdoors. With more than half of summer still in front of us, we can expect plenty of opportunities to enjoy the heat of the season. But nothing is stopping us from getting out there now and enjoying the many activities and events in full swing around the region — even if we are forced to put up the umbrella or wear an extra layer now and again.

sweeping statements about the evolving science of climate change. But the sheer power of recent weather events, and the scars left by bark beetles and fires, are difficult to ignore. Australia has just taken bolder steps than those of B.C., imposing a carbon tax on the country’s 500 largest carbon emitters. The government proposes to collect the revenues for three years and invest them in renewable energy, transition for coal and steel industries and tax cuts for consumers who will have industrial carbon taxes passed on to them in the price of goods. Then the Australian carbon tax is supposed to convert to an emissions trading system designed to push industry into a cleaner future. B.C.’s carbon tax doesn’t exempt industry as its critics sometimes claim. The tax is imposed on all fuels used in industry, but hasn’t been extended to industrial process emissions.

PENINSULA NEWS NEWS REVIEW REVIEW -- Wednesday, Wednesday, July July 20, 20, 2011 2011  PENINSULA

LETTERS Tulips and roses rare

CRD a good watchdog

It is very gratifying to see Alice Finall in the July 13 edition of the PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW (North Saanich blooms eternal) merrily munching away on her sprig of parsley grown at City Hall. The rest of us in North Saanich are more often than not watching the deer munch away on our flowers, shrubs, and veggies. Tulips and roses are a rarity where I live in Dean Park. Happy gardening to everyone. Denis Courchene, North Saanich

I am writing to express my thanks to Capital Regional Director, Vic Derman. I believe that one of the important functions of the CRD is to act as a watchdog over short-sighted or poor decision making on the part of Greater Victoria municipal councils. This has most certainly been true in regard to both the Vantreight decision and also the ongoing Co-op attempts to relocate. Central Saanich council continues to show a lack of proper leadership on these issues, in particular. Rod Chilton, Central Saanich

Is it the municipality’s job to grow food? I’m glad the food bank will receive the produce grown by the municipality (North Saanich blooms eternal PNR July 13). However, is it really the job of the mayor and municipal workers to grow in competition to the local farms. At the Sandown meeting someone spoke about the “help” given to local farms. There were a lot of airy, fairy ideas but no substance. Growing fruit trees on municipal land is crazy. Forty trees will require a lot of care. They will attract rats, raccoons and anything else that will feast on these trees. Surely the staff of this municipality have better things to do. Fruit trees require care, pruning and spraying — would this not be better left to the experts? What happens to these ideas in a few years when more important and pressing matters are required. It’s almost as silly as wheat being grown on your front lawn. The ideas are put out without clear vision to long term costs, effects and damage it could do to the local farming community. If we all grow our own food, who will buy from our farmers and which store will stock produce that we would not be buying. Conny McBride, North Saanich

Going around in circles Re: Traffic circle a success (PNR July 15). Oh really? Maybe the reduced accident rate is because so many drivers just avoid the unbelievable, chaotic mess that the new roundabouts have created; they are far from completed yet, weeks after the opening. Try getting from McTavish Road to the Swartz Bay ferry terminal. There are a miriad of signposts everywhere, but that major direction seems to have been forgotten (they certainly were a couple of weeks ago, when I last tried). H. Edwards, North Saanich

Municipalities must work within growth strategy I was on council in Central Saanich from 1996 to 2008. Of the politicians elected today, many of them came after the Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) was adopted. The RGS was built directly from the municipalities’ own Official Community Plans, which itself is a product of direct community consultation. The new councillors and mayors today that say the CRD should not be telling municipalities what to do should refer to their zoning maps. You can literally see the outline of most municipalities by the change of densities and uses along the borders, such as industrial and commercial being pressed up against agriculture. But the greatest problems are developments approved in isolation that create traffic jams and wasted tax dollars in building and servicing infrastructure that leads to nowhere. What is happening in Central Saanich is a test for what kind future we want. Municipalities must choose to either work together cooperatively or face more poor planning decisions that are out of sync with the greater community. Neither citizens nor the province will continue to accept one-off decisions. We are at a cross roads, and local politicians need to be reminded that the only alternative to working together within the RGS is regional amalgamation, and the near complete loss of local interests. Christopher Graham, Central Saanich

Vision Matters Dr. Paul Neumann

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Macular Degeneration The enemy of central vision Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMT) is the leading cause of vision loss among people over the age of fifty. The macula is the part of the eye that provides central vision. There are two types of age-related macular degeneration, “wet” and “dry”. The most common is the “dry” type, where the gradual thinning of the macula causes a slow loss of central vision. This affects key activities such as reading, driving and recognizing faces. Peripheral vision is usually not affected. Currently, there is no treatment for “dry” ARMD, although research suggests that certain vitamins, minerals and diet may play a role in prevention. A growing body of research has linked lutein, an antioxidant found in green, leafy vegetables, to the prevention of ARMD. Diet has been examined to determine if nutrients can slow the aging process in the eye. Vitamins A and E, selenium and zinc are among the nutrients being studied. Other factors, such as smoking, alcohol intake, cumulative sun exposure and genetics have been linked to the occurrence of ARMD. “Wet”: age-related macular degeneration is less common, but may cause sudden, severe vision loss. This form of ARMD is caused by the rapid growth of abnormal blood vessels under the macula. These abnormal vessels leak fluid resulting in scarring and the subsequent loss of visual acuity. The key to treatment of “wet” ARMD is to stop the leakage of the abnormal blood vessels and thereby stop the scarring of the affected tissue. Early detection and prompt treatment is vital in limiting damage. Currently, laser therapy is used to treat this condition by destroying some of the leaking vessels. This treatment can only be used in a minority of cases. Regular eye examinations allow optometrists to look for signs of ARMD as well as other eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts. Optometrists can also help patients with significant vision loss by prescribing magnifying devices or low vision aids. You owe it to yourself and others to have regular eye examinations.

NEWS REVIEW

Malawi girls school holds first graduation Lauren Coulter News staff

In November 2010, the PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW told the story of Atsikana Pa Ulendo (Girls on the Move), a girls secondary school in Malawi, Africa. Founded in 2006 by Canadian teacher Christie Johnson and local volunteer Memory Chazeza, the school offers a full education to more than 300 girls selected from the impoverished area, all on full scholarship. Now, five years after it first opened, the small school hosted its first graduation ceremony in June. According to the APU newsletter, 72 young women, having completed four years at the school, will go on to either study at the University of Malawi on scholarship, or recieve loans to open their own small businesses. Three have been selected to study in Canada on full scholarship, at Pearson College in Victoria and at Northern Lights College in Dawson Creek, BC. The students at the school take classes following Malawi curriculum, along with receiving physical education and community service hours. One hundred per cent of the students passed the state-wide exams, compared to the rest of country, where only around 25 per cent of female students pass. The school relies heavily on outside donations, many of which come from Canadian Rotary clubs and other charitable organizations.

Art abounds during the summer The Sidney By-The-Sea Dental Hygiene Clinic would like to welcome Joanne Fox, R.D.H she joins Carol Judson R.D.H and Catherine Bescape R.D.H to form a group of professionals who’s dedication to preventative oral hygiene is unsurpassed.

250-655-4884 Serving the Peninsula for 9 Years!

This month I want to tell you about arts events during the BC Day weekend in our town and also about an exciting event in our Sister City of Anacortes the following weekend. During BC Day weekend, Odette LaRoche is again planning to hold the annual Plein Air Paint Out on Saturday, July 30. Now in its ninth year, this is one of Sidney’s main events for the holiday weekend. Artists have been invited to set up along the waterfront by 9 a.m. and by 12:45 p.m. have an interpretation of the spectacu-

painting, fabric art, woodwork and pottery. The creative people on the Peninsula have a new selection of their work for you to enjoy this summer. You might also, during the weekend, want to attend the official opening of the path’s south end, the newly redeveloped Lochside Walkway. The ribbon cutting celebration to mark this part of the pathway’s completion takes place on Aug. 1 at 11 a.m. Visitors to the art centre in Tulista often express their delight in the gardens especially the variety grasses.

new to tell you about. But, I must tell you about my tomato plants which are now at least four feet tall and bearing several clusters of small green fruit as a result of being pollinated with my make-up brush. If you have no visiting bees, do try imitating a bee because it really does work, and you don’t necessarily have to make a buzzing noise as you go from blossom to blossom, although, who knows, it may actually help. The neighbours may wonder what’s ailing you, but just turn the hose on them if they laugh or make rude comments, this is a democracy, and if you want to act strangely (in their opinion) it’s a free country, and it is your garden, and these are your tomatoes. And they will taste so good, you won’t believe you did it all by yourself.

Hearing Tests Set For Sidney & Area

Peter Such, director of the Victoria College of Art, stands with banners for the Emily Carr exhibition On The Edge Of Nowhere, currently showing at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. The college is initiating a fine arts competition that aims to pay homage to Carr. Don Denton/News staff

Carr-inspired contest invites all genres A new visual arts competition aims to reignite the region’s love affair with Emily Carr. The Underlying Spirit, spearheaded by the Victoria College of Art and held in partnership with various other local arts and cultural organizations, offers an opportunity to pay homage to the legendary West Coast artist. “We really are in the long-standing tradition of West Coast art here,” said college director Peter Such. “Our whole feeling is we are a world art centre that hasn’t been recognized as that — a whole, big art culture.” The competition, which is free to enter and open to visual artists from painters to sculptors and all media in between, was inspired by a line from Carr’s journal: “There is something bigger than fact: the underlying spirit, all it stands for, the mood, the vastness, the wildness.” The judges will be looking not for replications of

Carr’s art, Such said, but works that embody the connection she felt from her natural and cultural surroundings on the West Coast. “I like anything that inspires an awe and beauty, and reflects the people’s environment and society and culture and personality — and also adds a fresh understanding of human life,” Such said. He will be joined on the judges panel by wellknown arts figures Kerry Mason, Martin Segger, Fran Willis and Michael Warren, as well as Emily Carr House manager Jan Ross. The top 35 works will be shown at Madrona Gallery starting Sept. 9. From there, the top three pieces will receive prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third. The deadline for submissions is Friday Aug. 19. See entry details on www.vca.ca/the_underlying_spirit, call 250-5985422 or email info@vca.ca. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Keg season starts with tight finals Competitive division decided in tie-breaker

Fiercely contested finals marked the opening tournament of the Keg Summer volleyball series. The Keg Season Opener Reverse Doubles tournament was held at Reynold’s Park on July 17. It was the first tournament of the season for the Keg Summer Volleyball Series. In the battle of the sexes format, men spike behind a threemetre line while women may spike from anywhere. Teams were entered at two men, two women or mixed. There were two skill divisions — Pro and Competitive. The competition was fierce and each of the finals were closely contested. Marty Donatelli and Sarah Watchhorn snagged the Pro Division title with an exciting 21-18; 25-23 win over Wes Bertsch and Sven Bornemann. Watchhorn recently arrived from Grande Prairie where she played college volleyball. Donatelli was the former coach of the Camosun women’s program and one of the most successful competitors on the outdoor volleyball circuit. The final match featured spectacular digs and powerful spiking and could

have gone either way with both teams exchanging leads. In the end, the Donatelli/Watchhorn team won crucial points to seal the win. Finishing third in the pro division was the team of Wes Lefrsrud and Kim Howell who won the bronze medal match with a three-set tie-breaker win over Adam Vose and Russ Leedham. The Competitive division was also an exciting final match that went to a threeset tiebreaker. After losing the first game by a 19-21 score, the team of Mike Anderson and Joel Mryglod stormed back to win the next game 21-17. They carried the winning momentum into the 15-point tie-breaker and won the final game 15-10 over the team of Mike Hull and Brennan Phillips. Dustin Rahier and Windsor Wong won the bronze medal match over Josh Coutts and Morgan Klieber. After 25 years, this will be the final season for the Keg Summer volleyball series. The final two tournaments of the series will be the Richardson Foods Group Tournament on Aug. 14 and the Domino’s Doubles tournament on Aug. 28.

High schoolers at World Games

Pro champion Marty Donatelli with a spike kill in the final.

High school track athletes Brendon Restall (Oak Bay High) and Katelyn Hayward (Mount Douglas) represented Canada at the World Youth Games for 16and-17-year-olds in Lille, France, last week. Restall managed seventh overall in the 400metre final, running 47.34 seconds, 1.33 seconds back of the gold medal winner, Arman Hall of the U.S. Hayward was less than two seconds shy of the final heat qualification in the 2,000m steeplechase with a time of six minutes, 47 seconds. Both set personal bests, better than the marks they set as winners at the high school track and field provincial championships in June.

PENINSULA PENINSULA NEWS NEWS REVIEW REVIEW -- Wednesday, Wednesday, July July 20, 20, 2011 2011 

Behind Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest triathlon Travis Paterson News staff

Sumitra McMurchy didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it coming. Triathlons were something new when McMurchy volunteered to help with the Sri Chinmoy triathlon three decades ago. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already been a handful of triathlons this summer, including a June half-Ironman at Elk Lake. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Self-Transcendence, commonly known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Sri,â&#x20AC;? that was first in town and is the longest running in Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back (in 1981), I heard what was going on and I thought â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh boy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty extreme isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it?,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? McMurchy said. The 83-year-old has since taken on the role as race director for the Self-Transcendence Triathlon and Duathlon which runs Sunday, July 31. The triathlon was one of many short and ultradistance, or extreme race events organized by the Victoria chapter of international Sri Chinmoy centres for meditation. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the triathlon thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a banner of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-performance culture, and the Sri Chinmoy organization was at the forefront of the sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early days. With an entire industry and subculture built around the sport, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot of people might be surprised to see just who it is organizing the SelfTranscendence event,â&#x20AC;? said Paraja St. Pierre, a race volunteer since 1989. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of us, over 100 volunteers every year,â&#x20AC;? McMurchy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nearly everyone who is part of the Sri Chinmoy Victoria meditation centre has a job and we get helpers from Vancouver and Seattle.â&#x20AC;? Sixty people have already signed up for the newly added sprint distance, a 750-metre swim, 20-kilometre bike and 5km run. The spring is half the distance of the Self-Transcendenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional Olympic triathlon, 1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run. Both begin and end at Hamsterley Beach, as does the duathlon (a 5km run, 40km bike and 10km run). Until the late 1990s the Victoria chapter of international Sri Chinmoy centres for meditation coor-

dinated many local races, including an annual 24-hour endurance race, a 10-kilometre race and the Runners are Smilers, a two mile circuit at Beacon Hill that ended in 1998. It was all done under the leadership of Chinmoy, who believed that sports was the key to unlocking spirituality. For more information, visit www.victoriatriathlon.com. sports@vicnews.com
