Winter Fun Day - It's almost here.

Hey Everyone,

For those following along at home, it's only 5 more sleeps until Shekinah Winter Fun Day (if you are reading this the same day it was posted. If not, you will be required to do your own math to calculate how many sleeps remain). For you that probably means the anticipation is building. For us at Shekinah, that means a flurry of activity in preparation for the day.

We also have been dealing with another type of flurry - snow. That's right folks, Shekinah is white. Ample deposits last weekend coupled with forecasts for more promise that winter fun day will be a very snowy time. This is great news for those considering entering our snowshoe races or people hoping for a soft landing at the bottom of the Quill Hill tubing run or the presumably large contingent who are looking forward to a sleigh ride through a winter wonderland.

This is challenging news for those of us trying to make ice for skating. Between the warm weather we had earlier and the snowy weather we have now, nature is throwing us all the tricks in her playbook but I think, despite these challenges, there will be good skating ice on the river for Family Day. Oh, and did I mention the broomball and curling on the pond?

Yes folks, there is plenty to do for everyone: snow painting for the kids, ski trails waiting to be explored, and a delicious cup of hot chocolate to warm you up in the chalet between adventures. For those of you who once believed that wiener roasts were the only for summer, get excited about the chance to get a taste of summer in the middle of winter! That's right folks, one of your favourite summer camping meals, even in the middle of winter - with farmer sausage, too. Does life get any better?

16 February 2015 - see you then!

Despite Mother Nature's best efforts we are determined to skate on the river this year!
Don't forget your skates at home on Winter Fun Day!
