Destination change for Trip 2

Highlands-Nordic-logoHello Herring Belles and Beaux,

ow’s milder weather and predicted rain have made it advisable to postpone the Hardwood Hills event to another day. We are hoping for a better ski and snowshoe trip to Highlands Nordic in Duntroon where conditions are expected to be more favourable. Some will especially enjoy the excellent coffee and fine baked goodies there !!

Please note that fees
tomorrow will be $14 and $10, leaving more money in your pocket …..the right change is always appreciated.

Unfortunately it’s another longer bus ride, but hopefully we’ll have a great day, Christa


Trip 2 to Hardwood Hills

HardwoodHello Herring Belles and Beaux,

I hope you’re already thinking about skiing and snowshoeing on this bone-chilling Monday, because the treacherous weather gods are forecasting something quite different for Wednesday. However, the plan is to go to Hardwood Hills for the first time since 2017. Trail fees are $20 for skiers and $14 for snowshoers, so please bring the right change for easier collection on the bus.

See you in the parking lot for a prompt 9 a.m. departure,

(And remember to display your parking permit !!)

First ski trip on January 9

December 3, 2018

Hello skiers and snowshoers, members of the HBB cross-country ski club,

Welcome to another season of wonderful cross-country skiing and snowshoeing ! I am smiling as I post this first message because it’s really, really snowing outside…..hopefully a good sign for all the Wednesdays to come.

Highlands-Nordic-logoOur first outing will take place on January 9 and has been booked for Highlands Nordic in Duntroon where the fees are the same as last year : $14 for skiing and $10 for snowshoeing. For easy collecting please don’t bring large bills or small change. We leave at 9:00 a.m. sharp from the eastern part of the Toronto Botanical Gardens parking lot on the south-west corner of Leslie and Lawrence. As usual you will get your free parking permit for the whole season on the first Wednesday. Although we have six outings, the buses are booked for eight Wednesdays in case of one or two cancellations due to terrible weather.

Once again we have the same dedicated team in place:
Co-ordinator, Christa Naylor
Membership Secretary, Mary Wilson
Treasurer, Hedi Furrer
Webmaster, Gary Schlee

In the meantime, I wish you all the joys of the festive season, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ! Looking forward to seeing you all in 2019, Christa
