The Centre Bruce Snow Gliders and the Owen Sound Waxwings Special Olympics Nordic Ski teams look forward to hitting the trails the first Saturday in January. Each club has one new skier. If you have any interest in joining our team as a volunteer or assistant coach, stop and talk to any of our coaches on the trail or email:

Athletes Anne Howlett, Derek Morton, Jaqueline Gravel, and Katie Lesperance have been training hard in the dry land season, in preparation for the National Winter Games in Thunder Bay at the end of February.

If anyone is interested in providing financial support to these athletes as they raise funds for their trip to nationals, please click on this link for the Owen Sound athletes or for Port Elgin athletes.

And FINALLY! Special Olympics Owen Sound is growing again, with the addition of SNOWSHOEING! If any Bruce Ski Club members have unused modern aluminum snowshoes they would like to part with, please email Barb King at
