Yanessa Days again proved very popular when held Aug. 20-23 in La Loche, and one of the most attended events was the inaugural Kelly Sylvestre Memorial Monster Truck/Quad and Foot Mud Bogs. Sylvestre was an enthusiast of mud bog events and local residents wanted to honour his life by staging their own competition. In total, more than $5,000 was awarded in prize money with Kevin Janvier of Michel Village placing first, receiving $1,200. Second was Calvin Lemaigre of La Loche who collected $1,000. Here, Jonathan Sylvestre of La Loche makes an attempt to clear the mud bog with his jacked up Dodge Ram.
