Sports events happening this week around the South Cariboo

The 2013 Haywood Ski Nationals cross-country ski championships are taking place at Whistler Olympic Park from March 22 to 30 and volunteers are needed.

No experience is required and you don’t need to know how to ski to help out. Registration can be done online at www.zone4.ca/reg.asp?id=3103&lan=1&cartlevel=1 and the deadline is March 15.

To add to the excitement, ski jumping and nordic combined nationals will be taking place at the same time as the cross-country ski nationals, so there is the added rare opportunity to see some live ski jumping.



Mayvin Midget Rep Milers play a double-header with Williams Lake Midget Rep Timberwolves on Feb. 9 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre.

Game times are 11:15 a.m. and 6 p.m. and game duration is 2.25 hours.

There is no admission charge so come out and cheer on the teams.

The Initiation division also has their Fun Day on Feb. 9 from 1:45 to 5:45 p.m.



The Nordics Day Lodge at the 99 Mile Ski Trails now has a varied selection of good quality cross-country skis and equipment for rent.

They are just right for anyone who has thought about giving skiing a try without a big investment, or for those who would like to show off the South Cariboo’s beautiful ski trails to visitors.

For details, call the lodge at 250-395-2104. The lodge is open daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
