A social get together starts at 2:00 p.m. and runs until 3:30 p.m.in the lodge's Rotary Room. We will have wine, coffee and hot chocolate to drink and a variety of snacks for all ages. There will be a marshmallow roasting station outside, for young and old alike, to try your hand at getting the perfectly browned marshmallow.

To add to the fun, we will be giving out prizes in the following categories:

•Oldest female and male skiers
•Youngest female and male skiers
•Oldest Wostawea SWAG brought to the event
•Person who wears the "wildest" hat while skiing
•Best face makeup in either Wostawea colors or red and white to celebrate Canada 150
•Family with the largest number of skiers in attendance

Come out to meet old friends and perhaps make some new ones as Wostawea celebrates a great ski season that isn't over yet. See you at Killarney!

Sunday Ski Tour - Saint John River Islands - February 19, 2107

David and Doris will be hosting their annual Saint John River tour this upcoming Sunday starting at 1:00 pm. They are located on the north side at 394 Clements Drive (but the civic number is buried under snow).  We will put up some balloons. Please park across the road at the Sunset Church, which is roughly 700 metres west of the Claudie Road. It would be great if people can bring some snacks.  

Bring your wide skis, and your large basket ski poles if you have them. The trail will consist of a lovely river bank route of 6 – 7 kilometres all told (return). To help create a good ski trail on the thick snow pack, David has requested help to pack the trail with snowshoes and then set track. Trail grooming session will be tomorrow at 1 pm.  Folks who would like to help should bring both snowshoes and skis.  Any questions, call David at 444-9180.
