I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. We have some fun events planned for the club to look forward to in the fall and winter.
The 2016 Fall Symposium will be held on 10 September 2016, 9.00 am – 4.00 pm at the Arts Centre Hastings, 230 Durham Street South, Madoc, Ontario K0K 2K0 (located near the skate park/splash pad).
Our guest speaker this year will be 4 times Iditarod Champion Dallas Seavey. This will be a day you won’t want to miss – 50/50 draw, raffle, musher yard sale and vendors. More information regarding cost, schedule of events and other speakers will be posted (when available) on our Facebook Event Page.
This will be in the same place as last year, just outside of Minden. The event will be only one weekend, but we do have a rain date weekend planned. The event will be October 1st and 2nd 2016, with the Fun Race to be held on the 1st. The Fun Race will have Canicross, Scooter, Bike and Cart.
If the event is cancelled due to rain, it will take place on the following weekend, October 8th and 9th with the Fun Race on the 8th.
Once the winter race schedule is determined we will plan the dates for Elmer’s. It will be during the holidays or a weekend in early January. We will need a minimum of 10 people to commit to make the event a go. Karen Koehler is hoping to include a pulka training session for those interested. If there are not enough people she will offer a pulka training session near Minden in early January.
All events have a discount for OFSS club members. Prices will be updated on the Events section of the OFSS Facebook Page.
Hope to see you at these events!
