FUR AND FRIENDSHIP
IN CANADA'S CAPITAL
As Pedro ends his year as Mr Ottawa Bear and passes on his sash to Dori, we at the Ottawa Bears would like to take a moment to thank him for all his hard work and dedication in promoting the Ottawa Bears over the past 12 months.
As you can see in Pedro’s year in review video below, he was extremely busy within the community, attending a record number of events, talking up the club and raising funds for his chosen charity, Capital Rainbow Refuge.
But that wasn’t enough for Pedro…
He went out and recruited three competitors well in advance of the Mr Ottawa Bear weekend and, along with Adam, André, Wett Willy and Roger, he got them out to weekly dance practices where they worked on some really amazing choreography and we were amazed by their dance moves during the MOB competition.
To say that Pedro has been good for the Ottawa Bears is an understatement and we want to say a heartfelt thank you to him for all his hard work.
In what has already been called the hottest bear competition Ottawa has ever seen, three incredibly hot bears brought it all to the stage in a stunning evening of song and dance that moved and titillated a packed audience of cheering bears and admirers.
The action packed evening featured performances by the Ottawa Gay Men’s Chorus, Willy Seaman, Roger Fire, the Bear Dance Troop as well as some awesome and sometimes hilarious performances by our talented competitors.
We are hard at work compiling photos and video for you to enjoy but we wanted you to be the first to see our proud new Mr Ottawa Bear, Dori!
If you have photos of the Mr Ottawa Bear weekend that you’d like to share, please contact us.
We would like to extend a truly heartfelt thanks to everyone that helped make this a truly memorable event including MOB committee members and organizers, sponsors, judges, competitors and volunteers. It is thanks to all of you that the bear community is alive and well in Ottawa!
