Bundling up in several layers of clothes will no longer be a problem, for those attending and participating in High on Ice activities this weekend.
However, with the high temperatures today and tomorrow expected to be 30 to 35 degrees warmer, than they were the middle of last week, some of the outdoor activities, like Ice Carving, could be again be forced indoors. Nevertheless, at last report, the professional Ice Carvers Competition was still set to be officially launched, at six o’clock this evening at Centennial Park, with the judging scheduled, from two to four on Sunday afternoon.
The Toboggan Races, are scheduled for 10am to 2pm, both tomorrow and Sunday…and the free, "pet-free", sleigh rides, also at the Toboggan Hill, are set to run from 11am to 3pm both days. The Ice Fishing Derby is slated to go tomorrow, from 8am to Dusk and, Sunday from 8am to 3pm…and in lieu of no registration fee, an optional donation of five dollars can be made, to the Child Development Centre. The Weather should have no impact, on the Muk-luk Bonspiel at the Fort St. John Curling Club, today and tomorrow and, for more information on that you can call 250-785-2037.
The 2nd Annual Over-The-Line Mixed Ball Tournament, is scheduled for the Surerus Ball Complex, in the Northeast sector and, for more info on that, you can call Byron Stewart, at 250-787-7161. And once again we note, there’s a nineteen-or-over age limit, for the "Laugh Your Ice Off" comedy presentation, at the Lido Theatre. It goes tonight and tomorrow night, beginning at 8 O’clock, with the doors opening at seven. I’m assuming there’s still time to purchase advance tickets…for a 25 percent reduced price of 15 dollars…at the Lido Box Office, Systems By Trail and, the Visitor Information Centre.
