What a great way to burn off the Christmas turkey and holiday treats than to ski at Grand Beach with your hosts Jerry Zaste and Lesly Andrews!
We will be meeting at the 59'er Service Station, 59 Hwy just a kilometre towards Winnipeg from Birds Hill Park, at 9:00 to carpool to Grand Beach. For those that do carpool, the arrangements are that the driver provides the vehicle, all passengers split and pay the gas costs. For further info regarding the rendezvous at the 59'er, please contact Alain Louer at 204-235-1790.
Everyone to bring lunch, water, and perhaps a hot beverage. We will ski according to the level of the participants, possibly splitting into two groups and meeting for lunch at one of the ski shelters. Likely we will ski 10 km before lunch and another 2 - 10 km after lunch. Return to Winnipeg time difficult to predict.
Jerry Zaste and Lesly Andrews will be at their cottage for New Year's Evening and will meet the group at the Grand Beach trail head (approximately 10am) on New Years Day.
Those wishing to join Jerry and Lesly for NY's Eve please call early. Lesly Andrews at 204-799-8080 or Jerry Zaste at 204-799-8040  to register. If no answer at these cell numbers, perhaps try texting.
