English Channel Swim Live

Hello ski fans.  As endurance athletes, you may be very interested in following fellow Kelowna athlete (Emily Epp) as she attempts a solo crossing of the English Channel today.  Coach  Brent will be swimming a portion of the distance at her side.  We depart at 6 am your time.  I estimate we will be done (fingers crossed that the winds cooperate) around 5-8pm.  You can follow us live here.  You are looking for the ship Louise Jane.  https://www.canuckplace.org/emilys-eppic-swim/


Parent Social – Glasses found


Thanks to all parents who attended our meeting and social last night.  It was great to host you all in a warmer setting than the Telemark Chalet.

Two pairs of glasses were left behind last night; one pair of Smith plus case and one pair of Maui Jims.  Owners may drop by anytime to collect.

TR1 Roller Skiing Thursday with a Special Guest Coach

Hello Ski Fans,

Alyson Hamilton has offered to volunteer to do some coaching with our team going forward. She is a Medical student at UBCO now. Alysson also was a member of our National Ski team and has had over 40 World Cup starts.

A nice Article on Alysson is available for viewing Here!

So, 6 pm at South East Kelowna Elementary School for TR1 and TJR Skate Roller Skiing. I will be around too.

Remember that Gloves, Helmet, water and High Visibility shirt are Mandatory in the summer. This is the link to our Roller Ski Safety Policy which is found in the resource tab of our website.

I also recommend changing your tips over on your poles and bringing ski boots, poles and roller skis.

Thank You,

Adam Elliot
