The Nelson Nordic Ski Club will be getting ready for the season shortly.

Plenty of new sports to try in Nelson

Nelson Reflections have started their season, but remain open for new recruits.

On the heels of Sports Day Canada, many participants are starting a new season of sport. Some are trying sports they haven’t tried before. I saw an 85-year-old woman participating in gymnastics recently who picked it up again in her 50s. It seems there are more and more examples out there of normal being anything but. Other than the daunting idea of donning a leotard, my gymnastics career might not be over after all. In the meantime, I have so many other sports I still want to try. How about you?

 

Nelson Reflections have started their season, but remain open for new recruits. Their season runs now through to March. Practices are on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 4 and 6 p.m. A parent meeting and registration will be held at the pool on October 11 from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. For more information contact 250-354-8118 or nelsonreflections@shaw.ca. You can also head to their website at nelsonreflections.com.

The Nelson Nordic Ski Club is gearing up for their upcoming season starting with their trail work bee on October 14 at 9 a.m. This is the seventh annual work bee day where members support their local Nordic ski area. Hot lunch served. RSVP required.

Pre-season memberships will be available at the Nelson Trading Co. on October 25 to 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and also at the annual general meeting and  ski swap that is happening on October 28 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club.
