Just a reminder that the Dash For Cash is Feb 27 at Windsor Park. This is a fun event that can give our jackrabbits a taste of what racing is about. Coaches will be there for 5:30 for registration. It is a sprint format, and shorter distances for the little ones. 50m up to 200m. The races usually take under a minute per heat. And this really is for all ages up to grade 9.
It is a chance to get out and ski and a chance for a fun race. WWJR will do a bit of a pre-race practice so we can learn how to start and how to stop a race and see what the course is like.
Registration at 5:30
Races start at 6:45
WWJR will do a pre-race practice at about 6:00 on the grid.

Weather tomorrow looks amazing! Sunny and high of ZERO degrees C! We are planning a fun day of events for the kids AND grownups tomorrow. We are planning to have a few stations setup for the kids to go through to have fun and show off the skills they have learned this year.
There will be an obstacle course, a skiing and tossing challenge and a kids vs. grownups ski race so grownups, be ready!!
We will end with plenty of time for all to enjoy some hot chocolate donated by the local Tim Hortons and all the cookies/treats provided by parents. Please bring whatever treats you can and please note if there are any nuts/peanuts clearly, in case there are allergies. Also, if you have reusable cups/travel mugs you can bring for the hot chocolate, that will save on the disposable cups we will have for everyone, if you forget.
Come out dressed for some fun and sun tomorrow.

This is it!! The annual Cookie Party will be this Saturday, Feb 22 at our regular Wildwood golf course location and time. Each family is asked to bring some home made (or whatever you have time for) baking or cookies to share with the group at the end of Jackrabbits to go with hot chocolate. If you are bringing treats with nuts, or peanuts, please be sure to have them clearly marked.
We will do some skills and games/challenges then finish a few minutes early for treats. If you are not sure what to bring, more chocolate anything goes well with hot chocolate!
The weather is looking great for this weekend so let's hope it holds on!!

I am going to the mountains to do some skiing this weekend so sending this out a bit early. Looks like weather should be great for skiing again and the trails are in great shape. This weekend will be a combination of games and skiing and playing on the hill. Chad and Chantelle will be leading Jackrabbits this weekend so appreciate everyone coming out and having a great time.
