Although it was a chilly day, a number of the Bull Mountain Jackrabbits raced at Hallis Lake, making up the only out-of-town team that attended this fun annual event (and thus earning the annual Gold Pan trophy for best out-of-town team). The WLCCSC Jackrabbits who went were: Violet, Anna, Zinny, Gavin, Lilly, and Oi. All the kids participated in all the events. The day began with a classic distance ski. This was followed by a freestyle sprint team relay, and finally by the exciting downhill ‘double-cross’.
