Pattie Curtis BHSAI

February 2, 2012

It is with enormous sadness that we announce the sudden and peaceful passing of Pattie Curtis on Tuesday 31st January 2012. Pattie has been so much a part of Talland EC & the side saddle community for the last fifty years, and will be fondly remembered.

In Patty's memory, Area 14 will be taking up a collection to have a Trophy in her name for the Area 14 "Sir Lancelot" qualifier.
