Memorial BMX event Saturday in Parksville

It's the 10th anniversary for the GT Jam, a memorial for Justin Gair

It’s the 10th anniversary for the GT Jam, a memorial for Justin Gair. Gair was a BMX legend in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area, according to Justin Stokes, who was a friend of Gair’s.

In 2006, Gair was 18 years old and in his graduating year at Kwalikum Secondary School when the car he was a passenger in crashed and Gair was killed. Stokes said he’s hoping this year to have the largest attendance. He added there’s new riders every year.

“It’s one of the biggest BMX events on the Island,” Stokes said, who is helping with co-ordinating the event. “It’s kind of like a family. We see each other once a year.” There will be music, a BBQ and competitions for the riders. The jam starts at 11 a.m. Saturday in the skatepark in Parksville Community Park. — NEWS Staff
