Submitted article–Adventure race-Mount Moresby Adventure Camp invites you to our second annual Adventure Race! Similar to last year, the race will be held in late April/early May at the Kaay Centre. There will be 5 stages: kayak, run, hike, archery, and bike. Archery is a new component this year: thank you to SKIFFFS for making this fun addition possible. Teams and solo racers of all ages and skill levels are welcome. There will be a longer course for those wanting to push themselves, as well as prizes for best outfit, youngest group, oldest group, and most inspiring performance. It’s free. All you need is a willingness to get out there and enjoy some heart-raising outdoor fun.If you find it easier to train with a group, MMAC is offering kayaking classes through QCI Rec. These will be held on Saturdays for youth and Sundays for adults, 2-4 pm in front of the SHIP building in Skidegate. Classes will begin the first weekend of February and run through April. Be sure to bring your running shoes as well as your gumboots. If weather doesn’t allow us to get on the water, then we can go for a walk/run/hike instead.Look for updates in upcoming Observers. For more information or to register please call 557-4562. Otherwise, see you out on the water and trails this spring!NSCU climbs mountain for outdoor edIn the next months, you’ll see a climber in Northern Savings who wants to summit Mosquito Mountain to keep the Forest Stewardship Programs running at Mount Moresby Adventure Camp.
