Nordics holding AGM and gear swap

Annual event goes Saturday, Oct. 27 at Mark Isfeld Secondary School




The Strathcona Nordics are getting ready for a new season of cross-country skiing. Registration is open for winter 2013 programs, and plans are underway for the annual AGM and Nordic gear Swap on Saturday, Oct. 27 at Mark Isfeld school in Courtenay.

You can register now for winter 2013 cross-country ski programs. The Strathcona Nordic Ski Club (SNSC) say they have programs for everyone – children, youth, and adults; beginner, intermediate, and advanced; recreational and racer. Their cross-country ski programs begin on Jan. 12 and run every Saturday or every Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon until March 17. You can register and learn more about SNSC programs on their website

On Saturday, Oct. 27, you can join the Nordics at the AGM and gear swap, where you can find deals on cross-country ski equipment and catch up on ski club news. Here’s the schedule for the day: equipment drop-off 9-11:30 a.m.; waxing clinic with Coach Dave 11-11:30 a.m.; Join them for lunch 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.; AGM 12:15-1 p.m.; Nordic gear swap 1-3:30 p.m.; and unsold gear pick-up 3:30-4:30 p.m.

“(We’ll) also be having a Wax-o-rama—you can bring your classic and skate skis to the Junior Race team, and they will prep them for the new ski season,” a club spokesperson said. “The Nordics’ Devo team will be holding a bake sale, and you can pick out some treats while you wait,”

Everyone is welcome to the Strathcona Nordics AGM and Swap on Oct. 27 at Mark Isfeld school at 1551 Lerwick Rd, Courtenay. People attending the AGM get in first to the ski swap. All gear must be in reasonably good condition.
