A big Thank You to Kerry and Leona for their wonderful donation of supplies, time and expertise to build and install it for us.

Cross Country BC Membership Contest
Just 2.5 weeks to go!
To date the leaders in Group A are: Telemark has maintained its tiny lead, but this week it’s Caledonia with a huge move, passing Kimberley for 3rd and now right behind Telemark and Sovereign. Larch Hills has started to accelerate in the back but will they have enough time?
In total, these 5 clubs are still more than 3,000 members ahead of this day last year.
NEW PRIZE for the Club Membership Contest… and a sweet opportunity for ALL members: The Josie Hotel at Red Mountain in Rossland BC (“_Canada’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel_”) is contributing the following: * Two-night stay for two in a deluxe guestroom (valued at $800).
They are also offering the following:
* BC club members can get an exclusive 25% off best available rates.
* BC club members can enter to win “The Ultimate XC Ski Weekend” in Rossland, including accommodation, trail passes, food, and beverage (worth over $1,500).
* TIP: “The Ultimate XC Ski Weekend” contest was specifically created for Cross Country BC members and we think the odds of winning will be excellent. It only takes a few seconds to enter.

Do you like to play in the Sand Box We are building a sand box for the safety of our patrons.
George Jackson needs a carpenter to help him create and install this sand box. The intent is when the parking lot and stairs become icy members can assist in laying out sand in a timely manner.
