They do say that this is “the most wonderful time of the year!” It could be because many of us have a little extra time off of work allowing us to spend time with friends and family truly doing what we love to do. I guess that means that every day is the most wonderful time of the year for me as I get to swim, bike, run and play all year with people that I love to spend time with – How lucky am I!!!!!!
Speaking of spending fun times with people this past week has been awesome!
This past Sunday the Vernon Masters held our annual 100×100′s at the Vernon Rec Centre Pool and raised over $300.00 for the Upper Room Mission and many many many bags of warm clothes and blankets were donated – GREAT Job everyone!!!! Lots of furthest swims swum ever! Tons of Familes taking part this year and yes both Grant and Mike did complete all 100×100′s in a time of 2:51. Well done everyone – that turkey is going to taste even better!!!!
Last Thursday night the 20th of December we had our first fun ski up at SLNC. This ski is open to anyone – all you need to do is ensure you have a valid ski ticket and thursday nights are $5.00 ski nights so how great is that! The format is a little warm-up followed by a few tips from Glenn Bond and then we usually end on little fun race or TT - this week we did 2 loops of the lower night loop with 2 options on with the hill and one without so truly all abilities are welcome. And if you think you will be the only one at your ability -well then I encourage you to bring a friend! We will continue with these fun skies until the spring!
Here are the results from our first evening Thursday Dec 21st
We all know that we have great skiing at Sovereign Lake and Silver Star, but how about a weekend get-away with friends – If you want more info on ski weekends or camps in fabulous locations such as Whistler or Sun Peaks check out Glen Bonds website at http://www.glennbond.com/
