Dash for Cash – Monday Night!

Come out and enjoy the extra light, mild temperatures, and one of the last days of skiing for the year:  Monday March 9, 2015 at Windsor Park.  Registration for this event is between 5:30pm – 6:45pm.  Races start at 7:00 p.m. with the youngest skiers.

I am one of the organizers and we are really trying to make it a fun experience for the kids.  Come out and give it a try!


This Week In Skiing (9-15 March 2015)

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

It’s spring!  It’s warm outside!  Your kids can ski five times this week!  Yippee!

  • Monday, 9 March 2015:  “Dash for Cash“.  Chocolate.  Money.  Hilarious colour commentary.  Need we say more?  Coach Jeff will!  Register in person no later than 18:45 at Windsor Park Nordic Centre.  Nobody will be cold:  +4 degrees Celsius predicted.
  • Wednesday, 11 March 2015:  “Wednesday Night Participation Race #13:  Costume Relay“.  For 2014/2015 it should have been called the “Wednesday Night Cancellation Race Series”.  Week after week cancelled.  This week you can race without freezing!  And dress up like it’s Halloween or dress-up-time.  Register online no later than Tuesday night by 21:00.  Pick up participation bib no later than 19:00 on Wednesday at Windsor Park Nordic Centre.  Also, +4 degrees Celsius predicted.
  • Thursday, 12 March 2015:  “Fast Rabbits Thursday 12”.  Based on the toasty temperatures, maybe the last “Fast Rabbits Thursday” of the winter to be held?  Would you believe +4 degrees Celsius predicted yet again?
  • Sunday, 15 March 2015:  “Sunday Session”.  Currently not on the schedule.  Might need to put in a local session for the people who can’t make the Saturday ski-and-eat-a-thon.  +9 degrees Celsius predicated at the “end” of skiing.

Based on the above zero air temperatures and the warm sun, this may be the last week of snow on the ground suitable for skiing this winter.  Enjoy the skiing while you can!

“Jackrabbit Expedition 2015”: A Note on Concussions

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

A truly beautiful day for skiing at Falcon Lake today! Fast and fun and … and uneventful!

Not that the tubing was uneventful, at least for a few kids, unfortunately.  So, we might want to be aware of concussion detection and treatment:
