Great Concerts & Events

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

rr posterThis past weekend I had the fun of attending the Banff Mountain Film Festivals Radical Reels world tour presentation. Accent Inns partnered with the Sierra Club of BC to bring this event to Victoria. As with previous years the films did not disappoint. The audience was either laughing at the gags, saying oooohhh to the incredible scenery or ooouuucchhh as some of the folks in the film didn’t fair so well when meeting with a tree or handrail.

Vancouver Island Bead and Jewellery Show

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Vancouver Island Bead and Jewellery ShowAnybody that knows me well is very aware that I am easily distracted when I see something shiny.  I love colour and light and form and gold and silver and all things bright and beautiful.  And that is why I am looking forward to the Vancouver Island Bead and Jewelry Show that is being held on March 1-2, 2014 at the Stellys Fairgrounds in Saanichton.

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000 #4

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

group shot1With pre running all complete and only a few days until race day, it was time to organize our plan.  All riders finished practicing their sections without injury, goal #1.  We would have 5 vehicles on race day chasing the 3 race bikes.  Each vehicle would have a spare bike on board that parts could be robbed off if needed.  Other items on board would include satellite phones, food, water, tools, first aid kits, a spare rider, etc.  Basically we would have 2 trucks servicing the bikes in the centre of the Baja peninsula and east coast.  The other 3 trucks would take care of the bikes down in the southern portion and on the west coast.

Desert Camp Out

Watch out for those scorpion’s

With a week or so to go till race day, the rest of the team showed up.  The adventure really got exciting when 5 of us went to pre run race mile 385 to 525.  The day started great as usual, until we entered 10 miles of 3 foot deep silt beds.  A fine sand like substance that just floats in the air, clogging and killing motors in cars and bikes.  At race mile 430, my bike decided it had had enough.  2pm and David and I are sitting in the desert with a broken bike, 80 miles from the nearest accessible road.  Another racer comes along and we ask him to let Mladen ( another one of our guys ahead ) know we are stuck.  A few hours later, Mladen shows up and we try for hours to figure the bike out.  Nothing works.

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000 #2

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

photo 2Pre running the course is so important for the race.  It allows you to see all the hazards before race day so you can ride your fastest when it matters.  The course also changes so much during the 2 weeks leading up to the race as you have 300 plus vehicles doing the same thing as you.  So nice sandy roads turn into torn up, whooped out, silt infested trails.  Good times.

Why Be a Dog Friendly Hotel?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

KE Sep 2009 18bSo many folks tell us how thrilled they are that Accent Inns is a dog friendly hotel, but on occasion I get asked by some, “why would you welcome dogs in your hotels?” I can understand if someone isn’t a pet owner they might not understand. It’s simple really, our pets (dogs, cats, etc…) are living breathy mammals just like you and I and being so, it’s instinctual (in my opinion) for us to form tight bonds, love our pets. (more…)

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Training for Baja 1000For me, this crazy dream all started in 2008 when a good friend of mine and owner of Action Motorcycles, invited me on a dirt bike trip to a little town on the Sea of Cortes, San Felipe Baja Mexico.  This sounded like a fun adventure.  I had no idea that 6 trips later over 5 years, would have us lined up to race the toughest non-stop off-road race in the world. A Victoria BC Hotel Manager racing the 46th Baja 1000, who would have imagined that? (more…)
