Join Patrol 1 in honoring Jim 'Tug' Provence on:
TUG MEMORIAL RUN
the Kingston Peak Loop Trail
Saturday September 7th, 2002
"Fly, Be Free!"
I came up with this idea to hold a Memorial Run for Jim soon after I got over the shock of seeing Brian's post on the MHJC board of Jim's passing on August 9th. I wanted to honor a man who meant so much to MHJC, and what the sport of 4Wheelin' is all about. What better way to honor all that Jim Provence loved........by all of us getting together and wheel in his memory.
We all have many special memories of Jim of all he did for us as a group and individually. I will never forget how he introduced me to club wheelin', and the many 'Tugs' on Pritchett Canyon. There are many funny stories we have of how he always would lift up the spirits around a campfire after a nice trail ride, or work a crowd to smiles. When it came to business, the best interest of MHJC always came 1st. We will miss his leadership as well as his humor. 'Rest in Peace Tug'
So, let's all remember Jim on Saturday September 7th on the Kingston Peak Loop Trail (same route as the Hobo Run in July), while also helping out Paula with some extra $$ for her upcoming needs. I hope to be driving up I-70 with some 50-100+ fellow wheelers 'in tow' behind me lights on...honoring a man who will surely be missed.
