Bravo to all

We feel as if we had a recent holiday in Europe. We volunteered at the Sparkling Hill Masters World Cup cross-country ski championships here in Vernon.

The atmosphere generated by the laughter and talk of many different athletes from several countries was infectious. We had a ball helping out. The colourful ski suits dazzled about. The weather could not have been better. We needed sunglasses as the snow sparkled. Congratulations to the Sovereign Lake Nordic Club.

Our local hero, Dag Aaybe, placed well and won a silver medal in his 10-kilometre race. His birthday is in May so be sure to wish him well when you see him running about Vernon and up Silver Star MIA.
