Logging on Mt Macpherson

On January 13, 2015 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, BC Timber Sales (BCTS) is hosting an Open House to discuss the upcoming logging on Mt Macpherson. The Open House will be held at the Revelstoke Community & Aquatic Centre.

There will be a presentation at 6:15pm. A number of forest licensees will be sharing information about how BC’s forests are managed, and the local forest industry.
We strongly encourage as many members as possible to attend this presentation and open house. It is very important to understand the way our forests and specifically our recreation areas are managed.
There are two proposed cut blocks which will be in the forest circled by ‘Main Loop’, and in the Stadium area.
If you are concerned or have questions about the upcoming logging, please make it a priority to attend this event.

Week of November 24th

And we’re SKIING! Where possible, older “rock” skis are best for early season conditions (although early season conditions may not last that long if it keeps snowing like this!). Also, even with the lit trails, headlamps are still necessary.

Check the picture of the large group at the Regional Camp this past weekend. Lots of fun!

Here’s our schedule this week:

Tuesday: 4 – 6pm for TA; 5 – 7pm for JD
Skate
Wednesday: 5 – 7pm for JD
Classic
Thursday: 4 – 6 pm for TA; 5 – 7pm for JD

Saturday: 10am – 12pm for TA & JD

Week of November 10th

The snow line is slowly crawling down towards the Lodge! Fortunately, we got our leaf raking fundraiser finished in time — see photo of Erik “Leaf Blower Extraordinaire” Brosch.
Note: the forecast is calling for cold conditions over the next few days. I anticipate it’ll be below zero during our evening practices — bundle up like it’s winter! Headlamps are required for both Tuesday and Thursday practices.

Teck BC Cup

Check back here for info about our Teck BC Cup, held in Revelstoke at the Mt Macpherson trail network on the weekend of the 24th and 25th of January, 2015.

This is the 2nd race in the 2014/2015 BC cup series.

This is a two day race for athletes of all ages. The Saturday is a classic interval start race and the Sunday a mass start freestyle event.

 

To ensure a successful race we will need many volunteers for timing, first aid, course marshaling, concession and parking. Volunteer needs will be between 7:00am and 2:00pm depending on the job. No experience needed! If you would like to volunteer to help make this race a success please contact Penny at 250-837-3497 or brittins@telus.net.
