1. Tantramar Outdoor Club pot luck. Saturday January 23. St Ann’s Church Hall , Westcock. Socialize with fellow skiers and snowshoers starting at 5:15; Pot luck supper to be served at 5:45 pm. Update from the executive following the dinner. We hope all will attend, including the families of the skiers enrolled in our Jack Rabbit program.
Many of us recognize each other from passing on the trails. How about taking a selfie or full picture of yourself in the outdoors, print it off, and put your first name on it, and pin it to yourself! Your outdoor club name tag!
Questions about pot luck, contact Susan Kastuk-Ridlington firstname.lastname@example.org or 536-3345
2. Thanks to Pat Hayes for creating, and erecting, the handsome new trail wood engraved signs you will notice on the ski trails. I guess with the paucity of groomable snow he found another great way to help out. Many people think that La Rond is spelled incorrectly. Apparently, in French, you can say Le Rond, or La Ronde. Since this is an inclusive club, and mostly since this writer is somewhat(my kids would argue extemely) illiterate in the French language, the sign stays as is. Hope it doesn’t make you fall over.
3. The new cabin, likely to be known as “The Birches”, is now open for business.
The fire take lots of air and blowing to get going as the wood is a bit damp, and you shouldn’t shut the turny vent knobs on the doors all the way unless it is really hot.
We would ask that in the non snow season that dogs stay outside. As before, dogs are not permitted on trails when in use for skiing.
If you aren’t sure where it is, take a left at the green outhouse on the Yellow trail, halfway along the Birches.
Finally, Cy and I have each placed our favourite broom behind the door. Please let us know if you like my blue one, or Cy’s red one, the best.
See you in 2 weeks, Ross
