APJ annual expedition: Sunday February 25 at Falcon Ridge… and other important news

If your calendars were already marked, great! – you won’t miss out on this coming Sunday’s APJ annual expedition to Falcon Ridge Ski resort!

Sunday’s session (February 25) will be at Falcon Ridge (Falcon Trails Resort) – NOT at Assiniboine Park.

You’ll find Falcon Trails at the end of the south shore road of Falcon Lake: there will be great snow, milder temps, and awesome terrain!  Google Falcon Trails for a map and great resort stories or http://www.falconridgeski.com/.

Please prepare to arrive for skiing at 11:00 am.  We will ski together as a large group (or two).

There is a yummy restaurant there, or bring your lunch.  Bring helmets (or rent) if you want to have some more fun tubing in the afternoon… or keep skiing!  Many families stay to the end of the day and all ages have had a great time.

It’s a provincial park so remember to bring your park pass!

Driving time from Assiniboine Park to Falcon is 2 hours.  Leaving the city by 8:30 will give you plenty of time to unload the vehicle once you get there.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Secondly, the annual Dash for Cash event is next week Tuesday February 27 at Windsor Park.  It’s a really fun, very short event for kids in Nursery School through Grade 6.  Only $1 per child.  Registration is on site from 5:30-6:30.  Races begin at 6:45 and are usually finished by 7:30.  All children win either chocolate loonies or actual cash loonies!  Winners also receive medals.  More details about Dash for Cash can be found here on the CCSAM website.

Third, APJ coaches Ihor, Jeff, Katherine, and Yan will all be in Thompson with their children (James, Hayes, Hudson, Axelle, Nastassja, & Don-Han) who are competing in the MB Winter Games along with fellow-APJer, PJ McManus, from March 4-7… so Sunday March 4 will not likely run as a formal APJ session.
