Our Masters Event Team has been meeting regularly and plans are coming together for our biggest event ever.

Perhaps you saw our ad in the Cross Country BC magazine.

We expect up to 400 recreational ski racers from across Canada and around the world, plus their friends and families, to be spending part or all of the week March 11-17 here, enjoying our trails and participating in up to four different races and a variety of other activities.

The event schedule and sponsorship info is now up on our website. Check it out at www.goldennordicclub.ca.

In case you didn’t know, a “masters” skier is anyone 30 years old and up.

Typically participants in these types of events are recreational racers, skiers who train regularly and enjoy competing. Not all of our races will be for adults only.

Our last event, Saturday, March 17, is our Annual Huckleberry Loppet which of course is open to all ages.

As always, emphasis is on participation not winning for the loppet and we encourage all of our members and Rabbit families to participate.

We’ll be adding more details on the Masters Event to the website over the coming weeks as plans evolve.

We’re going to need the full participation of our club to make this event a success, so mark the dates on your calendar and plan to help out and join in the fun. Contact Sue Rowe at isrowe@xplornet.com if you would like to volunteer.
