AGM meeting held at the Aquatic Centre in Fernie

The yearly AGM meeting of the fernie Nordic Society was held for the first time in the park next to the Aquatic Centre on Sunday afternoon. The event included a BBQ set up by the volunteers as well as a team of competent handlers to occupy the youngest members during the meeting portion.

Each board members reported on his/her activities during the season. Several directors were re-elected and a few new ones were chosen.

The president of the society, Megan Lohmann, outlined the future plans for the club including the expansion of the trail system at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre to be ready before the first snow fall.

The efforts of each volunteer coach were recognized and each coach was presented with an insulated bottle and a gift certificate. We wish to thank all our volunteers and all those who attended the event. We are now getting ready for the new 2014-2015 season !

Finally: Consider becoming a volunteer this year for coaching, to help with an event, to write on this site... whatever.

A draft report from the treasurer is available below.
