The 2006 Tumbler Ridge Musical Ride Committee was formed in November, 2005 receiving approval from Ottawa on January 24, 2006 to host the RCMP Musical Ride. We feel fortunate to be one of the two host communities chosen in 2006 in British Columbia to host this event. The other community hosting the RCMP Musical Ride in 2006 is Quesnel.

The committee has produced 4,000 tickets for the event, which are now available for sale in Tumbler Ridge at the Community Centre, @$10 a ticket.

Tickets are also being sold in Chetwynd at the Rec Centre,

Dawson Creek at Simple Pleasures

Fort St. John at the Cultural Centre

Hudson?s Hope at the Village office

Pouce Coupe at the village office

and Taylor at the village office.

As the host community, we are responsible for stabling the horses, and we would like to thank our local businesses and residents for their support of this initiative. Their contributions will provide wood for the stalls for the stables that will be built to house the horses in the arena, and feed.

The Committee is planning a full day of events for July 29th. We will have two shows, one at 11:00 am and one at 5:00 pm. Plans are also underway for entertainment that evening, children?s events, grandstand shows, an early morning breakfast, petting zoo, RCMP Memoribila souvenir sales, market garden and much more.

Our guests will be arriving on July 28th, and we are planning a reception for the officers, dignitaries, the Adopt a Horse supporters and their guests, as well as the volunteers who are working on this initiative.
