"I'm telling you stories. Trust me." - Winterson

A great eventing personality crosses the Rainbow Bridge

On a sadly serious note, Russell Smith passed away last Friday of cancer. Russell owned Checkmate and was a huge supporter of Canadian eventing from the grass-routes level all the way to the top. Even in the midsts of chaos he'd always have time for a smile and a story or to encourage a young rider heading out on XC... He will be missed. For any who are interested, the funeral will be at Trinity College Chapel at 2:00 pm 4:00pm on Friday the 19th of November. Trinity College Chapel is located at 6 Hoskin Avenue, Toronto.


Today's wikipedia quote (appropriately):

"We should not mourn for men of high ideals. Rather we should rejoice that we had the privilege of having had them with us, to inspire us by their radiant personalities"

-- Indira Gandhi
