Hello Jackrabbit Managers,
Yep. I bet I know what you have been saying to yourselves for the last month. Really. I think it goes like this:
- Gee, I was really keen on becoming a Jackrabbit Coach, but gosh darn, I missed out even after Coach Rob exhorted me to go for it (https://assiniboineparkjackrabbits.wordpress.com/2014/11/02/wanted-more-jackrabbit-coaches/).
- But, shucks, more than anything; even more fun than being a Jackrabbit Coach, is that I have always wanted to become an Official, specifically a Cross Country Canada Level 1 Official. Kind of like being a hockey referee (but with polite parents), a concert promoter (without bumping into celebrity), and an accountant (minutes and seconds way more often than dollars and cents), all rolled into one. Oh yeah, and Michelin Man. You get to dress like Michelin Man. Often.
So, if you would like to make your dream come true to help run cross country skiing events then sign up for the free “Level 1 Officials Certification Course” being held this upcoming Saturday, 6 December 2014, from 09:00 to 17:00, at the Sport For Life Centre (across from the Manitoba Museum) at 145 Pacific Avenue.
To learn all about it, and even to sign up (its free this week only!) go to our provincial sporting organisation’s webpage of http://www.ccsam.ca/level-1-officials-certification-course-december-6th.
