Fun ski day

The Clinton Snow Jockey Club is having a fun ski day on Feb. 9 at the Big Bar Ski Trails.

The event is a cross-country skiing fun poker run and will go from 10 a.m. to 1 pm. There will be hotdogs, smokies, coffee and hot chocolate for sale. The cost to participate is $5 for adults and $2 for children.

Rolly Higginbottom of the Clinton Snow Jockey Club skis the trails on a regular basis.

His recent ski report stated that although the main trails are icy due to the recent rain, the trails at the Big Bar Airport are in good condition and are nice and flat and a good alternative until the trails that leave from the parking lot get some more snow.

They are hoping for snow before the fun day.

 

Clay sculpture workshop

The Clinton Art and Cultural Society is offering a clay sculpture workshop, Playing in the Mud, at the Clinton Seniors Centre on Feb. 8, starting at 10 a.m.

The $50 fee covers the cost of clay, firings and glaze. A second workshop will be held for glazing.

Students must be able to transport their work to Cordova Farm on Kelly Lake Road for firing.
