CX Training!

The last couple of weeks has seen the establishment of a cadre of August STC'rs honing our CX skills and fitness.  It's very informal and doing laps of the course means it's open to all skill levels - go your own speed, because honestly, we're all trying to keep our lungs in our bodies, and somehow that's a lot of fun!  Keep an eye on training blog, there's a ride posted tonight.

Recipient of the 2015 - 2016 Jason Lapierre Memorial Scholarship and beyond..

For those club members that were in the club back in the days when we were fund raising for a perpetual scholarship in Jay's name at the University of Calgary, here is the info from this year's recipient. It is great to see the scholarship still going strong.

In the year's since the creation of this perpetual scholarship we have focused on the creation of physical memorial in Jay's name and that is now just coming to fruition at the end of this summer. I will keep everyone up to date on progress from that initiative.

Below is the statement from the 2015-2016 recipient:

Confederation Park to hopefully become a winter Cross Country Ski facility.

With the COP facilities for Cross Country Skiers and MTN bikers being eroded in the hunt for added revenue, local clubs are finding new options to ensure athletes and active families have a spot to develop, experience the outdoors, and play. One of our long serving club members wanted me to share this new release from the Foothills Nordic Ski Club who hope to make Confederation Park a locally accessible nordic facility for Calgarians. Please consider supporting this initiative to ensure the Foothills Ski Club has a home in Calgary, to support the healthy lifestyle that our kids have/will come to enjoy, and provide access to a network of reliable inner-city cross country ski trails to all avid cross country skiers (see link at bottom of the news release).

Here is the link to the New Release.
