Monthly Archives: November 2016
As mentioned last week we will meet at 1:30 at Beaudry Park (a provincial park, so you should be able to show a park pass on your vehicle if the wardens are around). This will be an exciting day as we will be running and hiking on the trails AND will be given special training on emergencies, smaller Jackrabbits included! This will be great. Also, most important, bring a mug for hot chocolate
Getting to Beaudry Park: ( 25 minutes from Assiniboine Park)
Use the Google map link below, or , from Assiniboine Park, just stay on Roblin, go over the Perimeter Highway towards Headingley, stay on the south side of the river taking you though South Headingley, keep going (!) for maybe 5 minutes and you will be on gravel, 5 minutes later (maybe) you will see a sign for a provincial parks works yard (not Beaudry) the sign after that is Beaudry Park: turn NORTH, or right, here.
We are GO! for this Sunday, 1:30 at the Duck Pond as before, even without snow. Coach Ihor’s group: get ready to go for an interesting excursion. Bring a water bottle belt if you have one and adjust your clothes so the we can manage the heat. Light gloves or mitts plus a thin toque or buff would be a good idea (dress for spring skiing!)
The next week (Nov. 27) we would like to try a run and hike in the woods at Beaudry Park west of Headingley, on the south side of the river.
Thanks, and remember to shake out your gear to see if the stuff still fits.
Hi, sorry to announce but we need to cancel this Sunday’s (Nov. 13) session due to a shortage of available coaches: sorry!
We will pick it up again next week.
Also, don’t forget about the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba’s Annual Swap Shop on Saturday November 19 (www.ccsam.ca/)
