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 https://assiniboineparkjackrabbits.wordpress.com/assiniboine-park-jackrabbits-2013-2014-schedule 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 http://www.ccsam.ca/event/seine-river-ski-club-dash-cash 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 http://www.ccsam.ca). 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 (http://www.ccsam.ca/wednesday-night-race-formats) 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 robert.mcmahon@mts.net 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.

Thanks,

Coach Rob

(on behalf of Coaches Ihor, Katherine, and Jeff)
