Editor’s Note: The following email was received by Wells Gray Outdoor Club following the annual Birch Leg cross-country ski event on Feb. 7.
Hello Wells Gray Outdoor Club:
Here is to all of you hard working volunteers who put on such a great event. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and my friends that came along did as well. We were full of praise on our way home to Kamloops.
My personal opinion is that all was most terrifically well organized, fun, lots of work went into preparing, great shape of the trails, including some luck with the weather, lovely, tasty food, even a free beer each, very special tasty desert, and kudos to Jean Nelson for being cook and server.
Great community spirit was noticeable everywhere.
You could not have done any better, very friendly people, great costuming, making us want to contribute next year in thinking of something ‘Nordic’ and ‘Birch Leggy.’
Well done and thank you all.
