Hello Jackrabbit Managers,
Registration is now open to the first 100 kids (or 2015-02-25, whichever comes first) for the Jackrabbit Jamboree.
See details of this once-a-year Red River Nordic Ski and Biathlon Club event at the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba (CCSAM) website (http://www.ccsam.ca/jackrabbit-jamboree-registration-now-open-2/). Then register at Zone4 (https://zone4.ca/reg.asp?id=8492). Cost is $12 per kid.
At this moment, 11 kids (from various clubs) of the 100 kid maximum limit have been registered. It is our hope that all 53 Assiniboine Park Jackrabbit kids will be registered for this event.
The reason for that hope, is that unlike previous years, this winter’s Jackrabbit Jamboree will now (due to recent rescheduling) be held on a Sunday (not Saturday!). Yeah! That means that many or most of our club members should be able to attend at least part of it.
The Jackrabbit Jamboree will be held on Sunday, 1 March 2015, from 09:45 to 15:00. Hot lunch is provided. No, your child is not obligated to ski the whole day (although it is indeed set up for them to do so). And, yes, your child can arrive late, or leave early, or do both, if they have another Sunday commitment to attend.
No session will be held in Assiniboine Park on Sunday, 1 March 2015, between 13:30 and 15:00. This is because we will be at the Jackrabbit Jamboree.
