Feb 16-17, 2019 Teck BC Midget Championships at Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre in Vernon:
Four of our Bull Mountain racers participated in the recent Teck BC Midget Championships, which is an annual event for kids ages 9-12. There were three events: 2 km classic race; 300 m skate race; 1.5 km team relay race. It’s a popular event, with 25-35 competitors in each boys and girls age group. Anika came earned a silver in her classic race! Jake, Anika, Nadia and Oi teamed up to make a Bull Mountain Wranglers relay team, and won tasty cookie medals, coming in first in their Unofficial Relay Team category.
Five of our youth Bull Mountain Racers and one coach competed at the Teck BC Cup#2 in Revelstoke last weekend, January 26-27. Members of the Bull Mountain Racers team who raced at this provincial competition were Jessabelle Trelenberg, Nadia Wallin, Jake Sutton, Anika Wallin, and Grace Turner. These five racers had 7 top 10 finishes!
Anika Wallin earned a gold in her classic sprint (350 m) and bronze in her freestyle (skate) race (3.75 km), and Nadia Wallin earned a gold in her freestyle (skate) race (2.75 km). Coach and Jackrabbits Coordinator, Rob Sutton also competed, in the 10 km freestyle (skate) Masters category.
Congratulations to all the racers! They all did really well with a technically challenging course – lots of steep hills and sharp turns.
Thanks to all who showed up to enjoy our trails and free rentals from Caribou Ski and WLCCSC’s Ski School program. Over 100 people attended today’s Wellness Day – a new record! It was great to see people of all ages heading out to enjoy the warm, sunny day.
Many thanks to the First Nations Health authority for providing and serving the delicious chili and bannock!
Thanks also to Caribou Ski for bringing up masses of skis, boots, poles and snowshoes!
And thanks to the many volunteers who groomed the trails in preparation, helped with the equipment, greeted people at the registration desk, did the clean up, and took groups out to give beginner skiers tips and directions!
What a great day!
