Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District helps Tri-Conic

The Tri-Conic Challenge is slowly chipping away at the funding it needs over and above its $80,000 contribution from the Canada 150 Grant.

The Tri-Conic Challenge is partially funded by a Canada 150 grant.

The Tri-Conic Challenge is slowly chipping away at the funding it needs over and above its $80,000 contribution from the Canada 150 Grant.

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District board voted to give the Tri-Conic Challenge $1,000 from its special event budget. The grant leaves the ACRD budget at $4,000 left for the year.

According to a letter to the ACRD from chamber of commerce executive director Bill Collette, the Canada 150 Grant only covers 35 per cent of the event’s budget.

The Alberni Valley News has also signed on as the title sponsor for the Triconic Challenge.
