Kemala Tribe and Bruce Taylor hold up the brand new Kevin Tribe Memorial Trophy, presented for the first time this year to the winner of the potato cannon contest. Kevin, who died in March of 2015, was a regular participant of the contest as part of Team Tribe. The Gabriola Rod, Gun, and Conservation Club put the trophy together in his memory. Warrent Heibert bought the cannon from a private seller in North Vancouver, who had purchased it in Holland, 50 years ago. Jamie Doig assembled the trophy, using local arbutus for the stand.
