Great participation at the Pumpkin Hunt

The Elk Valley Nordic Centre near Fernie was again this year the site of our 3rd Annual Great Pumpkin Hunt event. An event open to the community just ahead of the ski season. The weather was very favorable on this Saturday morning of October 21. Three hundred pumpkins had been hidden in the bushes and among the fallen leaves by club volunteers. At 11:30 the hunt was on for a great number of boys and girls aged up to 9. Two firepits were set up on the site for roasting marshmallows and wieners.

The 2nd annual Fernie Pumpkin Hunt

What fun! Thank you to everyone who came out to the 2nd Fernie Pumpkin Hunt on Saturday morning at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. By 10:45 am, the hunt was on. Many volunteers had hidden 275 pumpkins, more than double than last year! We even had to go for a last-minute run to replenish the pumpkins after the first 200 were claimed at 11:20 am! Thanks to those who waited for round 2 to get hidden. We'll aim for 400 pumpkins next year!
