Perhaps, because you are a good parent, you rush home, conscientiously prepare a meal that is fresh, and at least constitutes food, if not high nutrition.
The July long weekend is quickly approaching and with it the inaugural Furious3 multistage mountain bike race. If you have friends or family competing in this race or just don’t have enough to do that weekend, why not come down and support the athletes in and around Fernie? Each stage will take the rider between two and six hours to complete and you can see them at a number of spots or even volunteer on the course to see all the action up close and personal.
You’ve probably noticed the colourful children adorned in their soccer jerseys on their way to fields in May and June, have kids playing, or maybe you even coach a team or run a division! With nearly 400 kids involved in youth soccer each year, the breadth of its reach must be community wide. While there are numerous individuals yearly that get this league off the ground, it is John and Adelaine Traverse who have been at the helm for 13 years.
Just about every weekend in June offers a great outdoor event, from the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life on Saturday June 4 to the Annual Lizard Range Disc Golf Tournament on Friday July 1. Athletes can get their run on in Elkford on Sunday June 5 or in Wasa Lake on June 11-12 while bikers will be happy to see the return of the Fernie Mountain Bike Club’s Two-Knee Tuesdays. Fernie Golf and Country Club kick things into gear with the Men’s Pro-Am and Couples Alternate Shot in the second week of the month and Fernie Alpine Resort opens for summer biking on Saturday 25.
For reasons too convoluted to go into here, I recently had to take charge of a ski-hut full of mattress covers (or “metro scoffers”, to ape, not unkindly, the pronunciation of a Dutch girl in the group) and ensure they were washed, aired
When Jesse Northey’s family moved from Fernie to Lethbridge, he was pretty stoked to be heading to a bigger city. Who could blame him? Not only did he get beat up for being a figure skater, but also, he was 16. Whether it’s parents, hometown or school, almost everything seems provincial at 16, no matter where someone grew up.
June 7: Middle-aged couple Tom and Gerri live through Another Year, more blissful and in love than ever. Trouble is, the other people in their lives haven’t been quite as lucky.
In 1994 Kevin Smith, comedian, writer, director, comic book nerd and minor celebrity, began his rise to geek stardom with the release of his first film, Clerks.
It’s almost time for my very favourite Fernie event: The Fernie Writers’ Conference! This year, the week-long set of workshops and presentations promises to be better than ever.
While I was getting my weekly latte and muffin, the owner of the coffee shop mentioned that she was concerned with young adults being offered credit cards with high limits and that they did not yet have the life experience to use them properly.
Credit cards are a good way to establish a credit history which is needed when applying for loans or mortgages and they are convenient when travelling, that is all!
I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.
