With all the excitement over the contest, dogs, and skaters, we set a new record yesterday with 1259 views. Whew!
Congratulations to Dave Covell, the lucky winner. ?
This blog has a lot of positive energy coming from the readers. For example, Cindy’s comment: “lots of people were out ranging from kids, dogs, newbies, racers, chariots, snowshoers…everyone seemed to be having fun! A great day of skiing.”
After reading 2wheeler’s comment about dogs in Yoho, I made an extraordinary effort to create a blog header that he would especially enjoy. If we play our cards right, I can envision 2wheeler rescuing a dog from the Humane Society this summer and we’ll see the two of them skiing at West Bragg next winter…with the dog off leash! I detected an underlying sense of humour in his comment, so we know there’s hope.
Is there a need for skating trails in K-Country? I’ve posted a Poll on my business website where you can vote yes or no.
All the comments for the contest were great; here are a few hi-lites filled with levity:
