Year-End Jackrabbits Update by Keith Day & Aimee Vereecke

What a great Jackrabbits cross-country ski season!!

Jackrabbits were out in large numbers every Saturday this year. You looked great out there on the trails. We have had a very committed group of talented leaders support our skiers.

We would like to thank everyone for all of their support, time and positive energy. You are doing a great job at sharing your love of cross-country skiing with children. We can’t do this without you. A special shout out to our new leaders – your enthusiasm has been great.

Our partnership with Georgian Bay Nordic and our Track Attack group was a great way to highlight the additional opportunities that are out there for our cross-country skiers who want to continue to challenge themselves. Thanks to Marilyn Suke, Timothy Smith and Bob Groh for your ski instruction throughout the season.

Parents, you have been a great group to work with. Thanks for volunteering your time with Jackrabbits events and weekly duties. You make our job much easier.

We are always looking for new ideas and leaders. If you are interested in sharing some of your skills or talent, please let us know.

We have enjoyed the opportunity to help organize and coordinate our Jackrabbits crew. After four years in this role we are both looking forward to passing the torch to a group of leaders. If you are interested in helping coordinate the Jackrabbits program please be in touch with us at

There are a variety of tasks that need various skills, if you enjoy working with great volunteers, committed leaders and enthusiastic kids, the job is for you. We are planning on playing a coaching roll next year and will help out with this transition.

Although Jackrabbits might be coming to an end, we look forward to seeing you out there on the trails. Thanks for another great season!
