Welcome to a New Season!

Dear Jackrabbit families,

Firstly, welcome back to returning members, and a big welcome to all our new members!  We have had a tremendous amount of interest in the Jackrabbits program over the past few weeks, so this should be a great season, with several new families joining us.

Click here for the season schedule. There may be some changes depending on weather and snow conditions. 

This year, you will need to confirm the lesson is a “go” by consulting this website (top left).  Lessons are cancelled if the temperature falls below -20C with wind chill.  You can also get this on your cell phone with Twitter.  Myron put up a "how-to" on the website below.  The decision is made at 6pm Saturday the night before, but if the weather changes a lot, check back again at 8am for an update.

The first lesson is this Sunday, December 12.  It will be at the Canmore Nordic Centre and we will meet in Meeting Room B.   The lesson will run from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon. There will be a brief orientation at 10:00am, during which the children will meet their coaches.   

Members can eat lunch in Meeting Room B after the lessonsPlease note that the room is booked until 1:00 pm.  If you are planning to stay and ski for the afternoon, please remove your belongings by 1:00 pm.  The club is responsible for keeping the room tidy.  Bow Waters Jackrabbits will be charged for any cleanup required in the meeting room.  Please clean up after yourselves. 

Trail fees are in effect for the Nordic Centre and the club’s rate is discounted.  The amount will be posted shortly.  Children 5 and under are free and instructors tickets are provided.

A few housekeeping points:

Children need to be dressed and ready to ski, so please have their skis waxed beforehand. They should also have a snack and a drink, and an extra pair of mitts, all of which they need to carry themselves.

Children 6 years old and younger under need a parent to accompany them during lessons.

Finally, CCA updated their waiver this year.  If you have not yet signed and returned the new waiver, please do so.   I will collect these on Sunday as well.

Looking forward to meeting everyone soon!
