This coming February 12th -18th the Aventuriers ski club in Charlo, New Brunswick will be hosting the 2017 Canadian Masters Cross Country Ski Association National Championship. Four races will be held during the week – short and long distance classic and skate races.
The purpose of this post is to shamelessly tempt Canadian Masters skiers (anyone aged 30 or older) to attend this event in the wonderful corner of the world that I’m living in at the moment.
I first discovered the Acadie region of Canada in 2014. The winters are still long and cold here with snow aplenty. French is widely spoken here and the locals will be sure to welcome you most warmly. It is a unique region definitely worth visiting.
I’m still one year short of Masters eligibility so I won’t be racing this year. Unfortunately I don’t know my work schedule yet, but if I’m free I’ll be happy to show skiers around, help with waxing, and offer anyone that needs it space on my living room floor – but I’m sure you can find more comfortable accomodation in the region.
Lots more information is available here and here, with registration here. Please don’t hesitate to contact me by commenting below if you have any questions.
Sadly, well not really, I will be in Hawai’i then. However before then maybe?
Aww shucks! I might be at Martock for biathlon races Jan. 21/22. Are you still based in Halifax?
