Obstacle Course Fun


Director of Fun, John Andres, orchestrates the course!

We had another highly successful Obstacle Course Toonie Event this past Sunday (Jan.15). 52 enthusiastic children of all ages challenged their skills and agility in our fun and crazy obstacle course along the trails and through the trees next to the Raven Lodge. A great time was had by all- and it seems like the goodie bags were a hit.

Many thanks to all of the volunteers who helped make this event such a success. Our next Toonie Event is planned for Sunday February 12th. If you would like to help organize one of these events, please contact John Andres at 923-1861.

Wood Gundy School Program Gear Donation Request

If any Nordics families have some ski gloves or mitts that are no longer useful to them, please consider donating them to the school program. We have LOTS of hats but good ski hand-wear is in demand. Light wind jackets are also welcome. Please leave donations marked for Wood Gundy in the club room.

Also, if anyone has any small sized cold hardy rubber balls (for ski soccer) I am sure both jackrabbits and the school program could utilize these. Please leave them in the club room. Thanks!!

Tallon Noble Returns from World Junior Trials

Tallon returned from the World Junior Trials in Utah, with a big smile on his face. “What a great learning experience. Racing in a huge field of the best U20 skiers from all of North America was humbling, but I gained a lot of racing experience and confidence.” Tallon was happy with his results, placing top 3 U18 Canadian in 2 out of the 3 races he entered. He is grateful to the BC ski team coaches, his club and sponsors for their support.
