… In a packed room, Curator and Director Craig Richards read this
statement to a crowd of Banff’s social elite and the who's who of Canadian
Mountain Culture. Quoted from an e-mail sent to him from Mark Gallup.
… "I’ve partied in Las Lenas like it was 1999 (and, come to think of it,
it was 1999); taken a piss on countless peaks that have never seen a human
foot print; bellied up to a Bell 407 in Belle Coola; shit my pants in
France; jigged when I should have jagged in Japan; felt pain in Spain; gone
the wrong way in Norway, well, you get the idea. But like the fable of
Dorothy and her fuzzy sidekick Toto, Once and awhile, I like to click my
heels 3 times and repeat over and over again, "There’s no place like home."
