Savoy Lanes opened September 9

Giving thanks for Nelson volunteers

With Thanksgiving in mind, it is a good time to appreciate local volunteers who help our sporting community thrive

With Thanksgiving in mind it is a good time to appreciate our local volunteers who make our sporting community as energetic and thriving as it is in our region. It is heartening that such a small population can make so much happen. Thanks to all of you!

The Savoy Lanes opened September 9 and has welcomed full eight-lane action each weekend since. Many birthday parties, staff parties, leagues and public bowlers have graced the facility once more and it is a delight to see kids bring out their parents for some family fun. There are still a couple of vacancies in the Wednesday night mixed league, the Thursday lunchtime ladies league and the new Monday night church league starting October 28. Currently, public bowling is open Fridays 4 to 10 p.m. and Saturdays 1 to 10 p.m. with more open hours slated by the end of the month. Please call ahead to reserve lanes for parties or to check times of operation at 250-352-7467. Christmas party bookings have started, so get your booking in asap.

Nelson Nordic Ski Club is offering dry-land training for BC Rabbits (ages 6 to 10) and Track Attack (ages 9 to 12) and ICC coaching courses later this month. Dryland training starts October 20 and goes until the snow flies. Registration deadline is October 6 at info(at)nelsonnordicski.ca. This is a great opportunity to join the group for some fun activities to gear up towards a great ski season. The ICC coaching course is scheduled for October 25 and 26 in Nelson. If you’re interested in coaching a Bunnies or BC Rabbits program, your minimal requirement is the ICC course, so go to nelsonnordicski.ca for more information.

While the local squash club is finding a new home for next year, this season of league play continues at the Royal courts on Baker Street. Ladies squash is hosting a free drop in from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 15. Due to the current situation of the club, players must have their own gear and ideally have experience for this league. If interested contact Nancy at nquackenbush(at)sd8.bc.ca.

Selkirk College has a myriad of activities at the Mary Hall gym at the Tenth Street campus in Nelson: pick-up basketball, soccer, belly fit, yoga, badminton, open gym, volleyball, capeiora and dodgeball. Like I said, a lot of things going on! To check out the schedule go to selkirk.ca and click on Mary Hall schedule.

Yoga classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 6:30 p.m. with Anna Colin as the instructor. Everyone is welcome, not just students. Full session runs through December. Classes cost $160 or $10 for drop-ins. Selkirk student rates apply. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat.
