Hello Jackrabbit Managers,
Ahhhh… Yes, Virginia, you can ski, and be warm, at the same time in Winnipeg!
While the official schedule (https://assiniboineparkjackrabbits.wordpress.com/assiniboine-park-jackrabbits-2013-2014-schedule) hasn’t changed, here is some important additional information:
- Thursday, 3 April 2014: “Fast Rabbits Thursday 15”. Please read this carefully. The Windsor Park Nordic Centre clubhouse is now closed for the season. The Windsor Park Nordic Centre ski trails are open until the snow melts. As such, both Coach Ihor’s and Coach Rob’s groups will meet on the “Training Grid” (not in the locked clubhouse) at 19:00 (not 18:30 nor 18:45!). Park your car in the southeast portion of the parking lot and walk directly to the ski trails that lead to the “Training Grid”. Technique likely to be free technique (skate). Latest weather forecast predicting a -3 degrees Celsius air temperature with a -8 windchill at ski time.
- Sunday, 6 April 2014: “Sunday Session (20)” is also Picture Day at Assiniboine Park! Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits will be photographed between 14:00 and 14:45 by Stafford Studios. Based on (hopefully good) recent input from Coach Rob, Stafford Studios has created cross-country skiing specific photo packages, similar in nature to what they have done for other sports (see http://www.staffordstudios.ca/p454668180). Print the attached “Ski Order Form 2014.pdf”. Select from packages starting as little as $10.00. Bring the completed paper to the session. Latest weather forecast predicting a fabulous +2 degree Celsius air temperature with no windchill at ski time! Attendance is strongly encouraged!
