Hello Nordic Folk!

With the arrival of 220 young racers for the BC Midget Championships at the start of the month, March certainly came in like a lion at the RNSC.  More sunshine is on the way and we have lots of snow so get out there and enjoy the trails.

As we mentioned in our last letter, we are trying a new way of sending email updates.  If you do not want to receive these RNSC emails, you may unsubscribe at any time.

We also want to thank-you for supporting our club through your membership fees, your volunteering, and your efforts to help members and guests work with our guidelines and policies.  Here is the news for March:

Free Rentals Continue for 16 and Under!

This winter, the RNSC explored a free rental program for skiers aged 16 and under.  This program has encouraged fitness for youth, promoted accessibility to the sport for families, and we are pleased to extend this program to the end of the season.

BC Midget Championships: Thank-you!

March 3rd and 4th...what a weekend!  The club was abuzz with racers, parents, coaches, waxing tents, music, and races, races, races.  Thank-you to the organizing committees and the many volunteers who made this race a great success.  The RNSC also want to thank every member for their patience during this huge event.

The Ski League Mini-Olympics

Yesterday, the ski league program wrapped up for the 2018 season with the ever-popular Mini-Olympics.  There were terrain park courses, speed traps, slalom courses, tug-of-wars, and much more. Thanks to the Athletic Development Committee for their co-ordination and planning this season. 

The RNSC also wishes to thank the volunteer parents and volunteer coaches who gave their time each week to guide and grow our young Nordic skiers.  We have published the long list of volunteer coaches in our 2018 Newsletter.  Thank-you for your time on the trails!
