Coach Ihor has checked out the park and here is the message from him:
Hi everyone: We will be giving skiing a try this Sunday, November 22! So pack your skis and a mug for hot chocolate.
Meet at the Duck Pond on Sunday November 22 at 1:30 p.m. for a great time on skis.
On a safety note, Parents, make sure that everyone stays off the duck pond. It looks frozen but I wouldn’t even try testing it! And there are no warning signs posted either!
It should be a great day with a temperature around zero!
Just a secondary note regarding the PodiumWear website… if you were attempting to order any APJ clothing this past week and had some difficulties, you were not alone! Their website went down and they are fixing it.
Therefore, the deadline for ordering APJ clothing will now be further extended. Coach Katherine will inform us all when she gets word from PodiumWear re: a new deadline.
I hope everyone who checked out the Windsor Park Nordic Centre’s SWAP SHOP survived the craziness there today! I heard it was a bit wild!
See you Sunday.
A few important notes:
- Some additional information on Ski Gear has been added to that section of our website. Please read through it in its entirety. It is crucial info for having a happy ski season with your family.
- There are no longer any water bottles/waist holders available through APJ. That information has now been deleted from Marketplace. Apologies for that oversight.
The weather has been incredible this Autumn. I think we all really enjoyed our time together outside as families yesterday! Here are a few photos from the end of Sunday’s session, sent in by one of the parents. Thanks, Leslie.
Please take a really good look around at the pages of our website as A LOT of new content has been added this week…
- a bunch of new photo pages are now posted in Media/Photos (some pages from last season; a page from last Sunday’s session)
- new info in Marketplace
- ads in the Buy & Sell
- new Coaches pictures posted
- a new page under the “About” menu link entitled, “Ski Gear” (more info from Coach Ihor will be added to that link soon)
And continue to check the Calendar as new events do get added to it now and then. For example, the annual “Swap Shop” is coming up on November 21 at Windsor Park Nordic Centre. You might get your ski gear there if you haven’t found some already.
There have been some phone calls and emails inquiring as to the status of this Sunday’s ski session… will it be happening? It is still in the “TBA” realm due to the unpredictability of the weather and snow conditions at the Park.
- Have all your ski gear ready to go.
- Be prepared for the possibility of some type of APJ session at the Park this Sunday afternoon.
- Check the website over the next few days for updates.
In the meantime, please note that there have been a few items posted on our Buy & Sell pages (under the “Marketplace” drop down menu). One item was posted and consequently sold within a day. However, there is still a really great deal listed: $80 for a whole ski package!
