There was so much going on, we couldn't fit it all in one newsletter, so here is some insight into what you enjoyed, or what you might have missed!
The Fundy Complex Water Show
The 2015 water entertainment was once again sponsored by the Fundy Complex - the Fundy Restaurant, the Dockside Restaurant and Bar, the Dockside Suites and Club 98.
This year, we brought a group called Summer Water Sports down from Ontario, and they were fantastic! They were a little hesitant at first about having enough depth of water and we postponed their shows by 30 minutes to be sure to have some leeway, but we didn't tell them ahead of time how dastardly cold the Bay of Fundy is! They survived, and seemed to enjoy themselves almost as much as we enjoyed watching them.
Great job, and thank you!
The Fireball Pyrotechnics Extravaganza with the Hub City Stunters
The collaboration between Fireworks FX, the Hub City Stunters, Guy's Frenchys, and with the total support of Fireball Whisky, produced a performance no one will forget!
The show started off quietly but escalated in excitement and intensity to the FX Flame Show Finale, set to ACDC's Thunderstruck. We're hoping we can pull this together again next year - it's sure to be another crowd pleaser!
Special call-outs to Kori and Adam at Fireworks FX, Craig at Kirkwood Diamond, Chantal from Hub City Stunters, videographer David Elliott, volunteer photographer Ed Boulter and both Guy LeBlancs.
Thank you to everyone involved in production, and to our great audiences for coming out and cheering!
What better combination than daredevil stunters careening through shooting fireballs, and a whiskey called Fireball? The Hub City Stunters had the audience in oohs and ahs as they set pyrotechnics off with their bikes and performed tricks on two wheels and four (and many times only one!).
This show was brought to us by the generousity of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky and Guy's Frenchys.
We had another great turnout of custom builders who show creativity and passion in their work. Thank you, Indian Larry Motorcycles, Kent County Customs, SpeedTrix, Sean's Non-stock Customs, Slinger Cycles, Bobber Boyz / Mad Squirrel Studios, and Hellbound Cycles.
Thank you for coming!

What a great ambassador! Bean're represents the Wharf Rat Rally all around the world, and this year he provided the greatest registration prize EVER, in conjunction with Glencoe Camp Resort ... an all-expenses paid trip to 2016 Sturgis! Alphee Thibodeau from Weymouth is mighty glad Bean're arranged that! Congratulations, Alphee.
He also brought drift trikes with him, with help from Timo Richard (Bobber Boyz / Mad Squirrel Studios) and the drift trike sponsor, CARQUEST.
His usual visits to the hospital and long-term care facilities were again very well attended and gratefully received. For some of the residents and patients, the biker visits are the highlight of their summer. Thank you, Bean're!
And of course, Bean're is a mainstay at our opening and closing ceremonies.
Always a friend, and always a gentleman, we're lucky to have Bean're! Come back to see him again next year...
