Are you interested in a change of scenery? Then hop on the bus for a trip to the Temiskaming Nordic Ski Club just south of New Liskeard. The club is organizing an outing on Sunday February 8. $32 gets you transportation and a day pass: a great deal. We need at least 30 participants to cover the cost of the bus, so please sign up. Check details on the Events page.
This year's meeting, in addition to the usual reports, included the election of board members for the next two-year term. That new board then elected the executive for the next two years.

|Jennifer Brown||Donna Burton||Joan Clark||Bob Graham|
|Stephen Hart||Brenda Holbein||Emerson Hunt||John Roberts|
|Terry Shakell||Kerry Somerville||Peter Taylor||Gord Valliant|
|Registrar:||To be selected in September|
We have prepared an emergency protocol that you should read carefully. As always, if you feel uncomfortable with trail conditions or your own skill level, please remove your skis and walk beside the trails.
Please remember that as a Club member or day pass skier you agree to
"I understand that there are inherent risks involved in cross country skiing. I agree to ski at a level appropriate to my skills to ensure my safety and the safety of other skiers. I accept full responsibility for my safety and release Wasi Cross Country Ski Club, its members, agents, or any person connected with the club from all liability for any injuries or damages whatsoever arising from my participation at the club."
Our logo is on file at Mark's Work Wearhouse (North Bay). They can make and sew the logo onto any fabric item that you wish for 12 bucks. Just go into the embroidery division and tell them you belong the Wasi Ski Club.
On the weekend, during the ski season, volunteers act as hosts at our chalet. Duties include greeting members and visitors, answering questions about the trails and conditions, helping with sign-ins and checking that guests have purchased a day use pass. We will be scheduling the 3-hour weekend shifts shortly. Check out the hosting schedule page.
We were again successful in obtaining a Trillium Foundation grant in the amount of $46,800 to support the life of your club. Our grant has allowed us to upgrade the equipment, expand the parking area, do some serious trail work (culverts, ditching, bridges), and twin a portion of the 4 km trail.
