Thank You Camp People!

Thanks to all the parents who supplied baking for the successful regional camp.  It is always a hit with the athletes.  A special thank you to Mark Filatow  Waterfront Wines, for his generous donation of 60 loaves of very wholesome and delicious bread.  We ate very well!!

Kelowna Toyota Patches

I have patches for anyone with the older clothing.  Please sew, or have someone put them on your warm ups as the picture illustrates, this way they will match the new clothing.  Lycra race clothing cannot have the patches sewn on, and an iron on patch was not an option as the fabric does not like high heat.  We may also have enough to add patches to older Team toques and headbands later.  Please do your best to get them on as we want to give Kelowna Toyota exposure and hopefully keep them as a sponsor in years to come.



L2T/T2T Week of Novemeber 20th

Thanks Adam for coordinating a great Regional Camp. Also, thank-you to the other coaches for your assistance and a big thanks to Tom, Glynis, and Sean for the nourishment! Well done everyone!

The week’s plan breaks down like this:

Tuesday – We be meeting again at 634 Bonjou Rd. and going for a run followed by strength and technique videos.

Thursday – We will be skate skiing at Telemark (bring rock skis). This practice will be optional for the younger athletes going to this week’s Regional Camp 2.

Saturday – We will reward ourselves with more volume skiing at Sovereign Lake. As usual, we will meet at 1934 Ambrosi Road for those needing to carpool. Otherwise be at Sovereign and ready to ski for 10:00am.

9:00 am if Racing!

Carpool to Silver Star Camp

For those athletes attending the On Snow Camp at Silver Star this weekend.  The plan is to carpool.  Meet at Coach Ross’s Kelowna Manual Therapy Clinic on Friday Nov 17th at 1600 hours (1934 Ambrosi).  The Telemark Team Van may be available (it is currently being retrofitted with a kick-ass ski rack that will store luggage, skis and equipment).  If the van is ready, we can accommodate 10-14 athletes.  If not, we will carpool.


Camp Baking Request

Hello Telemark Parents,

I have undertaken the task of organizing the food for the regional camp. The camp will take place next weekend. I am looking for help! I am thinking instead of buying package baking I am looking for parents to do baking before the camp. This is in the goal to save money and eat healthier and yummier food. Any type of muffin, loaf, bar and cookies would be fantastic! Please label if there is dairy or nuts in the baking. There about 50 coaches and athletes so any amount of food would be greatly appreciated! The more baking done before the camp the better! The baking will make for great food to pack to train and snacks. Let me know what you plan to bring or ask what we need!

You can email me at

Thank you!

L2T/T2T Practice Notice for Nov. 14th and 16th


We will be running tomorrow (Tuesday) instead of skiing. The persistent warm, wet weather, and deteriorating snow conditions at Telemark prompt this change. Please meet at Coach Hilary’s house dressed and ready to run at 6:00pm. The address is 634 Bonjou Rd., Kelowna (just off McClure Rd.).

There will be no L2T/T2T practice on Thursday the 16th due to the Regional Snow Camp beginning on Friday. Looking forward to a fantastically fun time next weekend on snow!

Race Team Mommies’ Night In

The race team moms enjoyed their second annual “night in” at the McKinnon house.  They enjoyed conversation, food and drink, lots of drink, without having to worry about driving home.  They were fortunate enough to have door-to-door delivery courtesy of the “Telemark bus”, driven by this handsome devil, snappily dressed in his Telemark chauffeur uniform.  Thanks to all of the ladies who came to make this year another success.  To the few who were not able to attend, we’ll catch you next year!
