RE: Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits: This Week In Skiing (24-30 March 2014) *** Zombie Update! ***

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

Super important change for tomorrow night!

Our Thursday, 27 March 2014 “Fast Rabbits Thursday 14” has been transformed into Biathlon Manitoba’s just-announced “Zombie Ski”.

Same time. Same place. Part scavenger hunt. Part obstacle course. Part British Bulldog. Zombie evasion. Candy. On skis!

Cost is one dollar.

See attached e-mail for gruesome details.

Latest weather forecast predicting a -13 degrees Celsius air temperature with a -20 windchill at ski time. Bundle up to protect yourself against the zombie virus contagion!

Open to all Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits (and parents) who promise not to have Zombie nightmares for the next week!

From Ron Pelletier:

Brief explanation of the Zombie Ski!

Athletes will start the course with 2 “lives” (Flag Football Tags).

They will make their way through the course, looking to collect Water, Food, Shelter and Weapons.

However, as they make their way around course, they must be on the lookout for zombies (parent volunteers) who will try to take their lives.

If a life tag is taken by a zombie, the athlete will have to complete a penalty before getting their life back and returning to course.

There may be obstacles in course, so be vigilant!

First athlete back gets first pick at the candy prize stations.

Be ready to start for 7.
Parent volunteers – Anyone is welcome to volunteer. Costumes are welcome but not necessary. If you do not have a costume you will be given something else to signify you are a zombie. Please come for 6:30 to discuss penalties and where you will be on course. The more zombies we have along course the better it will be so please come out and help!
