SAVE THE DATES!

Hi All;

We are starting to prepare for the upcoming ski season.
Please take note of the following events and get these dates circled on your calendars.

Sunday October 2, 2016 ANNUAL FALL WORK BEE #1
10am-2pm at Bull Mountain
  • As always, this will be a fun, outdoor day, for ALL family members. 
  • Where: Meet in the Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club parking lot.
  • What to wear:  Warm clothing, work gloves, rain gear (depending on the weather), hiking/work boots. A day-pack is handy for carrying your stuff.
  • Hand Tools: Round nose shovels for removing rocks, woody debris, cow paddies, etc. from the trails, clippers and hand-saws for removing branches encroaching on the trails.
  • Specialty/Power Equipment: If you own an ATV, we would appreciate it if you brought it; the trails are soft so we ask that people walk or ride an ATV. Vehicles (other than ATV’s) will not be allowed on the trails. We need people with chain-saws and brush saws for removing brush growing up on the trails. A weed whacker is probably too light. Please note if you are bringing a chain-saw or any power equipment our safety plan obliges volunteers to wear personal protective gear (a hard hat with ear and eye protection, gloves and work boots) and faller’s pants if you are running a chain-saw.
Sunday October 23, 2016, WORK BEE #2
10am-2pm at Bull Mountain

If you have any questions, please give Sean Seabourne a call at 250-398-9588.

Saturday November 19, 2016
OPEN HOUSE 9am at the Library Meeting Room

We look forward to seeing you!

Racing Results from BC Teck Cup Championships - Callaghan Valley Whistler

Race Team: Grace Turner, Anika Wallin, Livia Seabourne, Jessabelle Atkinson-Trelenberg and Cooper Seabourne competed at the 2016 BC Teck Cup Championships at Callaghan Valley.


The Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Clubs racing team competed in 4 BC Teck Cup regional events over the season at Sovereign Lake (Vernon), Stake Lake (Kamloops) and Caledonia (Prince George) with the BC championships at Callaghan Valley Whistler Olympic Park last weekend.  It was a  fabulous weekend at Callaghan Valley despite the adverse weather conditions.  The racers competed in three events; Friday free technique sprints, Saturday classic technique distance, and Sunday free technique relay.  In the 2010 atom 200m sprints Cooper Seabourne placed 2nd.  In pee wee 200m sprints 2006 Anika Wallin placed 4th and 2007 Jessabelle Atkinson-Trelenberg placed 1st and 2007 Livia Seabourne  placed 5th.  In the 2004 bantam 400m category Grace Turner placed 5th.    In the classic technique 1.0 km 2010 atom Cooper Seabourne placed 2nd.  Peewee 1.5km 2006 Anika Wallin place 5th and 2007 Jessabelle Atkinson –Trelenberg placed 3rd and Livia Seabourne 6th.  Grace Turner skied 2.5km classic and placed 3rd.  The peewee girls Anika Wallin, Livia Seabourne, and Jessabelle Atkinson-Trelenberg skied to a 2nd place finish in the 3 x 1.0km relay on Sunday to end the weekend on a high. 

 

Provincial aggregate awards were awarded at the banquet in Squamish Saturday night and Cole Turner finished 1st overall for the 2001 boys.  Unfortunately after a superb season and following two gold medals at the BC Winter Games Cole suffered a broken ankle during a cool down ski and was unable to ski at the BC Championships, but had accrued enough points over the season to clinch top spot.  Jessabelle Atkinson –Trelenberg finished 3rd overall for the 2007 Peewee girls with a fantastic season.  It was a great season for the racing team from Williams Lake and they would like to thank coaches Lisa Seabourne, Rob Sutton and the coaches from the Caledonia ski club,  and also the many parents and volunteers without, results like this would not be possible.

From the Race Day

What a treat is was to be able to help out last weekend during the Elementary School Cross Country Ski Tournament. As you will see from the following pictures the day was all smiles!  A big thanks to all who helped Rob Sutton make the day such a big success.  Special thanks to Sean and the grooming team for a job well done in less than great conditions and the biggest thanks to all the students who participated.

By the way; I was up to the trails on Thursday and there still was some skiing going on and lots of snow.  After last night I expect it has deteriorated more but I'm certain you could still have a reasonable ski.  Let me know if you go out today (296-3638)
