What’s up this week?

Well done, APJ coaches!  Yesterday, our usual ski session had to be reconfigured and moved to the Formal Gardens due to the melt/freeze that’s been happening. We have some pretty flexible coaches who can make anything work!  Happy skiers played games, worked an obstacle course, hunted down rubber chickens, and skied the loop, all the while smiling for photos with Stafford Studios.

Photos will most likely be complete in two weeks’ time.  If you didn’t submit an order form, but would like to do so after viewing your photos, give Stafford Studios a call to arrange for that.

Tomorrow evening is the annual DASH FOR CASH… a very fun, short, ski event where every child wins chocolate loonies and/or real loonies!  WIN-WIN!  It’s for any skier from Nursery to Grade 6.  Coach Jeff McMillan and Coach Steve Scoles are the hosts who make this event a blast… (read below for details)

Next Sunday March 5 is intended to be APJ’s annual Falcon excursion – an all day event.  Due to the melt/freeze thing making it icy, some trails are closed.  So please stand by and await a final decision on this club event as the coaches find out more about trail conditions.

The DASH FOR CASH is back!
