Nordic News: September 17th, 2017

September 17th, 2017
Greetings to the Revelstoke Nordic Community!
We hope that you have all had an enjoyable summer, and that September is treating you well.  Winter may still be a long way from your thoughts, but there are plenty of things already underway to make this another great season at the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club.
The RNSC Executive is busy preparing, Ski League registrations have begun, and as I type this letter, Matt Smider (our multi-talented RNSC head coach) is out at Blanket Creek hosting an Okanagan Regional Dryland Camp with over 100 Nordic racers in attendance.
For those of you already looking to the mountaintops for the first signs of winter, here are some timely news items and some other club news:
Get Ready for the Winter with Nordic Yoga
Balu Yoga and Wellness is offering Yoga classes tailored specifically to Nordic skiing this fall.  Classes with Lisa Cyr start on Monday, September 18th (@ 7:30pm) and run for 10 weeks.  Cost is $119.
Level One Officials Course in Revelstoke
In association with Cross Country BC (CCBC), the RNSC offering a one day Officials Level 1 course on October 28, 2017 in Revelstoke. This course is an introduction to all of the roles and responsibilities of officials in all types of races, from Loppets to Provincial Championships.
This is the first time we’ve hosted an officials course here, and with a new generation of parents and volunteers coming through, its a real opportunity to learn more about races, become certified, and help Revelstoke continue to host awesome races. Please let Mike Thomas know this week if you are interested in attending, email Mike at [email protected].

BC Midget Championships Update

We’ve agreed to host the BC Midgets Championships this coming season. It’s a two day competition for 8-12 year old athletes from across the province, running March 3rd and 4th, 2018. It’s an awesome event, often the first racing experience for the younger athletes, and offers an interval start classic race, a team relay and skate sprints.  This promises to be an exciting few days at the club!
A New BBQ for the RNSC
You can look forward to some tasty smells in the air during club events this winter.  The RNSC bought a new barbecue!  🙂
Looking Ahead…
As winter approaches, we will send you more information about our fall membership drive, a newsletter, and a few more email updates.
Have a great September, and we look forward to seeing you again this winter.
