Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits: This Week In Skiing (24 February – 2 March 2014)

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

Just a reminder of what skiing activities have been scheduled (sorry, but the “official” schedule found at is now hopelessly wrong due to the “breakdown of the polar vortex” and will be reworked “soon”) this week of 24 February 2014 to 2 March 2014:

  1. Tuesday, 25 February 2014: The annual for-young-kids-only “Dash for Cash” is hosted by Seine River Ski Club at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre. Head-to-head classic sprint of either 50 or 100 metres depending on school grade. “Loser” gets a chocolate loonie. “Winner” gets a metal loonie. Most kids seem to want the chocolate. Register in person between 17:30 and 18:45. Everything is done by 20:00. Must see details at before going. Make sure it hasn’t been cancelled due to cold weather before you go (by checking for a prominent cancellation notice on the home page of the CCSAM website at Latest weather forecast predicting a -34 windchill at race time. Ha ha ha…
  2. Wednesday, 26 February 2014: “Wednesday Night Race #11” is now a Classic technique race ( and is hosted by Red River Nordic and Biathlon Club at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre. Must register no later than 21:00 on Tuesday. Latest weather forecast predicting a -30 windchill at race time. Ha ha ha ha ha…
  3. Thursday, 27 February 2014: “Fast Rabbits Thursday 10”. This week is Classic technique. Coach Ihor’s group of older or more experienced skiers meet at 18:30 and go longer distances. Coach Rob’s group of younger or newer skiers will meet in the clubhouse fifteen minutes later, at 18:45, and go for shorter distances. We currently have Lauren, Chloe, and Teagan interested. While we haven’t seen much of any of our skiers this winter, Coach Ihor and I think that Laura, Kate, Nika, Kevin, Liam, Hayes, and Don-Han, may want to participate in Coach Rob’s group. If I didn’t mention your skier that is simply because of an oversight on our part. Please reply back to if you think your child might be interested in skiing on Thursday evenings, and even if they (or you) are not interested. Latest weather forecast predicting a -34 windchill at ski time. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…
  4. Sunday, 2 March 2014: “Sunday Session (15)” at Assiniboine Park.
