Family Fun Event – March 4th

MARK YOUR CALENDAR! Join our Family FUN Event on Saturday March 4th, from 3pm into the evening!

This year, we will be honouring the Erika Lamb Snowflake Series – a legacy event in honour of our dear Erika.  The race event is open to all MHRC athletes and their family members.  The registration fee per racer is $20, which includes an amazing swag gift!

Further details on race registration will be coming soon – stay tuned.

Those family members not racing can join in the fun of purchasing raffle tickets for great giveaways and 50/50 draws. (Hint – All raffle tickets and draws will be cash only.)  Funds raised will be put toward a new timing hut on Challenger.

And don’t forget the food…Everyone is welcome to a tasty BBQ dinner with all the fixings.  Kids can make maple syrup suckers in the snow, and enjoy toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate by the campfire.  The clubhouse area will be transformed into a winter wonderland!

If you’d like to support the fundraising for the new timing hut and are able contribute raffle prizes, please contact Sherry at sherry.westfahl@gmail.com.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at this awesome event, and celebrating the end to a challenging but rewarding season!
