WOW! What a year it’s been! When I think back to last year’s Calendar release party we were worried about fitting 30 people into a private room at the Clubhouse Restaurant in Vancouver! Thanks to Alvara at BellaCandellas for providing great food and service for all the bunnies and company. This year we had close to 100 people coming and going throughout the night, including Wade Simmons who crashed the party after 9pm!

The night began with a slideshow of the bunnies throughout the 2007 season. Gord Smith, from Beastgear enjoyed a Bunny sandwich with Ms October, and Ms.December.

For once I am at a loss for words. Okay I lie, I’m not! I feel so honoured to be a part of this incredible group of people who have all come together for one thing: the love of the ride! Of course the Calendar Release Party is always more than a celebration of our calendar project, it’s also a night to honour ever single member, sponsor and supporter of the Muddbunnies. And that’s just what we did.
