Change of guard for Nordics club

Maryanne Capnerhurst new president of 100 Mile Nordic Ski Society

With a successful winter ski season behind them, 15 members of 100 Mile Nordic Ski Society gathered for the club’s annual general meeting on May 23.

After serving four years as club president, Nicola Maughn stepped down from the position and Maryanne Capnerhurst was voted in to take over the reins.

Anke Zucchelli vacated the treasurer’s position and was replaced by Colleen Robb.

All other positions remained unchanged, with Capnerhurst also carrying on as registrar; Neil Manhard, trails maintenance and development; Colleen Ellens, skill development co-ordinator; Barb Matfin, coaching co-ordinator; Tom Puckett, facilities co-ordinator; Tracy Moore, secretary; Lauren Bock, media/events promoter; Maughn, Cariboo Marathon chair; and Deb Summers, Challenge 500 co-ordinator.

Bock says club plans for the summer months include installation of new trail signage that will display trail names, distance to lodge, and maps showing skier location.

To prevent deadfall on trails, the Ministry of Forests, Lands & Natural Resource Operations’ Recreation Sites and Trails BC will clear dead trees from within one metre of the trails.
