Yet another Coping Bash has come and gone from the heart of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, and it was another contest and bash for the ages. In the end, Kassy Bailey took the women's contest, Adam Hopkins—a man possessed—took the men's contest, and 3 turned out to be a confusing yet still magical number. Check out this video recap from Out Of Step Productions and scroll on down for some photos from Jeff Thorburn.
