It may be heading into the fall

Nothing wrong with fall in Nelson

The approaching fall and winter sports and recreation opportunities are as much loved by the locals as well.

As much as summer is a well-loved season around here, the approaching fall and winter sports and recreation opportunities are as much loved by the locals as well.

 

The Sports Council is really excited this fall to be reopening the Savoy Bowling Lanes for league play on September 9. Registration for leagues will occur at the lanes before start times. Please arrive at least half an hour early to register your team, or call ahead and leave a message at 250-352-7467. The grand reopening of the lanes under new management is on September 14, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. with fun games, prizes, food and free bowling. All are welcome to join in the celebrations.

 

There have been many exciting developments for the Kootenay Swim Club this summer and they are ready to launch this September. The swimmers are gearing up for another great year as the club marks its fourth regular season of competition and training. Kootenay swimmers attend meets about every six weeks during the season and make new friends while travelling to racing venues across BC and participating in training camps. The club is pleased to announce a few new additions to its programs that include a new eight-week seasonal program aimed at giving youngsters a taste for competitive swimming. The sessions are focused on taking their skills to the next level when they are showcased at a mini-meet at the end of the session. There are also free try-outs every Monday in September.  Go to the pool and enjoy a free one-hour coached session by Chris.   The club would love to see what talent is waiting out there. For more information email  info@thekootenayswimclub.com or visit our website at thekootenayswimclub.com.

 

Granite Pointe is getting all the rounds in it can before the season end. Thursday September 12 is open for ‘The Wimp’ men’s night. Play from the red tees to red flags on every hole with the Men’s night hidden hole pot now up to $600! To win a player must have lowest score on the hole drawn at random at the end of the night (tie means the pot carries to the next week). The club is also planning an all-ages fundraiser for course improvements on October 5. For more information contact Graeme at 250-551-4878.

 

Seems that we could all do with a way to renew and refresh our health. Breathe, move and  relax with Tai Chi.  It is a gentle way of enhancing strength, balance and energy to improve breathing and posture that can help relieve stress, aches and pains or simply keep you healthy.  These classes accommodate adults of all ages and fitness levels, providing individual attention and guidance as needed. Classes start September 24 and  25 in Nelson and Balfour.  Please contact Sandra, 250-551-0866, sandra@qi-taichi.ca.
