Accommodation Needed

Hello Parents and Skiers,

One of our former skiers with Team Telemark, who hails from the far easterly part of Canada (Newfoundland), is in need of accommodation for the upcoming season.

Our teammate, Hugh Warkentin, is returning to Kelowna to train with Team Telemark.

Anyone who requires a roommate (BTW he can help with all subjects, including high level Maths) should connect with Hugh ASAP.

Please contact Hugh ASAP ian.warkentin@grenfell.mun.ca
