Bootleg Canyon's Brent Thomson Fund Raiser
Donations to PayPal Account Requested to Offset Enormous Hospital Bill

Boulder City, NV - January 14, 2009 - - As many know, Brent Thomson, Godfather and Trail Master of Bootleg Canyon suffered a heart attack last Saturday while riding the trails that he has famously cut into the mountains surrounding Boulder City, a stones throw from Las Vegas, Nevada.

The link provided in the previous release about this had timed out on PayPal, though you could still go to the PayPal front page, click on "Send Money" and type in as the recipient.

Brent is Having a Quadruple Bypass Tonight!
As previously mentioned, Boulder City does not provide health insurance to Brent for his job as Trailmaster at Bootleg Canyon. Therefore, friends are contributing to a PayPal account to help defray costs that are estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for his surgery that is scheduled for 7pm tonight. Like right now.
Please contribute by going on the link below. PayPal is safe, secure, and easy to use... Brent will appreciate it as much as you appreciate the freedom to ride the trails at Bootleg. Thanks.

About Bootleg Canyon
Bootleg Canyon Mountain Bike Park is an extensive network of World Class Downhill and Cross Country mountain bike trails located in Boulder City, Nevada. The area has been visited by riders from as far away as Japan and Germany and has been written up in magazines around the world. The International Mountain Bike Association has certified one of the XC trails as an Epic Ride, a title given out only 18 times so far.

Boulder City is located approximately 40 minutes south east of Las Vegas by the Hoover Dam and beautiful Lake Mead. The riding season is year round, however, temperatures average around 100 degrees Fahrenheit from June through August, so mid-day riding is difficult. If you do decide to come in the summer be sure to bring plenty of water and maybe some head lamps for a night ride. Be sure to check out our sponsors while you're in town for some great Boulder City hospitality.


Thanks again. SB
