Fry, Mervyn

"Go like Merv!"

After 77 years of "Going Full Out" Merv Fry on February 27, 2017 took his last earth-bound ski run. On this beautiful sunny day he paused at the top of his favourite run called Exhibition, mentioned something to his Old B's Powder Team (OBPT) ski buddies about it being "glorious" and then blasted down making the famous "whoop, whoop" sound the whole way.

At the bottom of the run with adrenaline still running through his veins his body suddenly decided it was done.

His friends and family, sad for their loss, began to realize Merv had found the perfect way to go, and with smiles coming back to their faces began to chant, "Go Like Merv, Go Like Merv".
