Thank you Surf! Now we need to name the new Bus

As mentioned in this week’s GERTIE article in The Sounder, the owners of the Surf Pub and Lodge have donated a 24 passenger bus to GERTIE. As mentioned in the article, ” GERTIE will have a table at the Spring Fair, May 2 at The Commons, where you can suggest a name for ‘Two-Pack’ (good thing it’s only temporary) and in return get a free ticket for a Gertie-ride. If you can’t make it to the Spring Fair (10 am to 2 pm), we welcome your monikers via GERTIE e-mail at or send your ideas via the comments section below. The deadline for submitting the perfect name for GERTIE’s 24-seater is May 9; shortly after that the names will be up on the website as a survey for everyone to vote for their favourite.
