Pouce Coupe’s winter jamboree has something for everyone

Events goes March 9

Starting at 9 am is your traditional pancake breakfast hot of the griddles at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch.

Snowmobile obstacle races hit Pouce Park at noon.

Pouce CAO Christ Leggett say the move is to make this an annual winter event for the community.

"It looks like Mother Nature is helping us out - which is good because we have lots of outdoor events for everyone."

Try out your sleds and try the obstacle course at Pouce Park for a chance at a prize. Event registration forms and waiver forms must be completed in advance to be eligible to race with a deadline of March 8 at 4pm.

"We're hoping for 15 to 20 snowmobiles for the course."

Warm up your winter with the Pouce Coupe chili title.

Cook up your favorite chili recipe and have it taste tested. Only four teams to compete for a grand prize. Must register in advance to be eligible to compete and this one has a deadline March 6 at 4pm.

Community centre activities such as carny games, a campfire burn, roasted weenies and more fun games kick off at 1pm. Curling slides out of the hack at 1pm on the community ice sheets – with prizes so up for grabs. Weather permitting, Leggett says there will be a turkey curl, so hold onto your hats.

If you require more information or would like to get involved, please contact events coordinator Al Cameron at 250-219-0808. Forms are available at the Village office and online. The Village of Pouce Coupe reminds participants that outdoor events are weather dependent and may be cancelled if Mother Nature makes it unsafe due to mild or extreme weather conditions on March 9.
