Big thanks to Barb and John Teghtmeyer at Bragg Creek Shell station for stepping up to be our fuel sponsors for this year - please support them whenever you can.
We are truly humbled by your generosity. Thank you so very much! With your incredible support and the funds from the grant, plans are now underway for the second grooming truck; we will keep you posted as to our progress and any other updates.
The forecast is still for snow towards the end of the week, so with any luck we can repay your extreme generosity with some fabulous corduroy and tracks!!
