2013 Ski Safari

The 2013 Yorkton Cross Country Ski Club hosted another great fun family event this past Sunday at Deer Park trails.

We had a swarm of Safari Hunters on Sunday, March 3rd, searching for 21 stuffed critters.  The weather was beautiful and the trails were perfect (thanks Ken). 
 In the end, 3 Kings were crowned, 2 Queens and 2 princesses.  One Mom said she couldn't have picked a better activity for her children.  Hugh Strendin announced that the Safari was his favourite event, since it kept his head up and looking around, rather than at the tip of his skis.  A good change.
Thanks to SaskTel and SecurTek for the Door Prizes.  Also, thanks to Bob Purton and Anne Stupak for hiding the critters (very skillfully done).  Wendy Zaporosky looked after the clubhouse and equipped the Safari Hunters with their maps and quarry lists.  Elsie Elsasser helped clean and pack things up and a group of 4;  Heather, Mike, Bret and Wendy rounded up the animals and put them in their cages till next year.  Deer Park is safe once again!

 If you see this guy (KEN) out on the trails then give him a big hug and a thank you for all the time he volunteers to groom our ski trails! He is the best!
One of the animals gets a little love after being found safe and sound in the snowy ski Safari!
Thanks very much to everyone who participated and volunteered!
