Chelsea Nordiq Cookie Beiner
March 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
On behalf of Chelsea Nordiq we would like to once again extend an invitation to Kanata Nordic Racers to participate in our annual Cookie Beiner in Gatineau Park on Sat. March 4, 2017. We have always had great participation from Kanata Nordic and we hope you’ll be able to make it again this year.
As in the past, the Cookie Beiner event is a wonderful opportunity for kids to ski from hut to hut in the park with their friends. Of course, most importantly, skiers (and their coaches) get to sample delicious home made cookies along the way at each of the huts. The event is open to Pee-Wee, Mini-Midget and Midget skiers (i.e. 9-13 yrs).
Things are pretty much as they were in past years. We require that skiers and their parents register on Zone4 (https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=14705&lan=1&cartlevel=1). (Registration is open and will close Mar. 3rd) The cost for the event is 9 dollars per person, which includes Zone4 administration fees. Families of 4 or more (immediate family members only) can register for $32. Skiers 13 years or older must have a Gatineau Park seasonal ski pass or purchase a day pass on-site. The event will start and finish at parking lot P9 on Meech Lake Rd; carpooling is appreciated. Participants will be asked to sign-in and ski in small groups of their forming; younger groups will need to have a coach or parent assigned to assist in trail navigation as well as to judge if the group is capable of covering the distances. Skiers can set their own goals regarding distance; the route will be the same, with the farthest distance of 27km round trip. We will have volunteers at the major intersections to help guide the way and there will be cut-off times for proceeding past certain checkpoints to ensure everyone gets back in good time.
Please remind your skiers that this is not a race, but rather a great opportunity to get to know skiers from other clubs, and ski with friends in the Park. More information about the event can be found here: http://www.chelseanordiq.ca/event/cookie-beiner/
We would appreciate it if you can confirm receipt of this email and that Kanata Nordic will be joining us again this year. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email.
Here’s hoping for a great day!
