That is Mountain FM'sDrex and myself (in a horribly wrinkled shirt...) holding the new container for The Ashes. What the heck is that you ask? How about we take a closer look.
I know it's not fancy, but that is part of the point. What is important is what is inside of the the pipe bom---er canister. I actually think that having a pipe like that is kind of a fun representation of the blue collar attitude that makes Trail the proud community it is. We'll play with it a bit to make it look a little more regal before the tournament itself. That being said, I like that it isn't just some traditional urn or trophy. You can't argue that it isn't unique.
