Congratulations to our athletes, Gareth Williams and Julia Ransom who are really making an impact beyond our club. Gareth Williams, who is currently the youngest of 8 male athletes on the Cross Country Canada National Ski team, last week was the top U23 skier at Canadian WJT, automatically qualifying him for the World Junior/U23 Ski Championships in Switzerland.
Julia Ransom is likewise proving she belongs on the Canadian National Biathlon Team having already achieved two top-10 finishes this season racing in Europe on the World Cup circuit. She is currently the top ranked Canadian biathlete and — BREAKING NEWS — has just been selected to the Canadian Olympics team for the Big Show in South Korea next month.

Thanks for your latest email. We appreciate hearing about the successes our young members have enjoyed both here and abroad. And congratulations to all concerned, especially to the great coaches for their ongoing guidance and support of our athletes.
When our family moved from Victoria in 1978 we decided to try cross-country skiing, and the Telemark trails beckoned. It has been almost 40 years since we’ve been members, and we are still enjoying the trails. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to help keep ourselves fit and at the same time help to support a fine local organization. Keep up the good work, and best wishes for yet another great ski season!
