Farewell to the 2016/2017 Ski Season

We had a good go of it this year but it’s time to say farewell to the 2016/2017 ski season.  We hope to see you out again next year.  Thanks to all the volunteers whose hard work made the season such a success.

Club Facebook Page

The club has a Facebook page that can be used to post pictures, spread the news about trail conditions, meet up with others for a group ski and so on.  Click on: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DRXCSkiCommunity/

Volunteers needed

In the fall, the club will be looking for a few volunteers to make the skiing as good as it can be.

Groomers:  We are looking to expand our stable of trail groomers, who help groom and track set the trails using club snowmobiles and grooming equipment.  Interested people should be fit (grooming is a very physical endeavor!), familiar with both classic and skate ski styles and preferably experienced with snowmobile operation. Having some free time in the evenings would also be an asset.  The more volunteers we get, the less work it will be for each one.  If you’re interested, email Dave Steer at d.steer@sympatico.ca.

JackRabbit Head Coach:  This position allows you to get out on the trails on Saturday afternoons to coach small groups of children between 5 and 12 years of age, while all the administrative work of the JackRabbit program is done by someone else.  Good technique in the classic and skating styles would be an asset.  If you’re interested, contact Kevin McDonald at kmcdonald11@yahoo.ca.

Secretary:   The secretary takes notes at executive meetings (normally two per year).  If you’re interested, contact Phil Davis at phil.davis603@gmail.com.

Club Championships Organizer:  The name says it all.  We need someone to organize the club championship races, which are held toward the end of the skiing season each year with typically 50 entrants. The organizer ensures that the course is prepared and finds volunteers to act as marshals, starters, timers and so on. If you’re interested, email Bob Donders at dondersr@magma.ca.
