Help fix Shaganappi
The Calgary Ski Club is looking for volunteers to help repair the vandalism damage at Shaganappi golf course. Alasdair Ferguson sent this report:
I previously estimated some 30 or so ropes had been cut. But I was wrong! Hopelessly wrong and too optimistic.
Yesterday while grooming the trails, I counted 81 lengths of ropes between our metal stakes strung by CSC volunteers plus another 20 or so strung around golf greens by Golf Course staff along our XC ski trails that must have been cut earlier during the warm dry spell as all ropes I identified had their cut ends buried in the 20 cm or so of fresh snow.
I need to have discussions with Golf Course Operations Management about this extreme problem, and I need to get some volunteers and extra rope to repair the damage and in some cases to replace the signage.
PLEASE HELP US CSC Volunteers to maintain the safety of Shaganappi for all XC Skiers and Snowshoers in winter and preserve the integrity of the Golf Course without winter damage for Calgary golfers in Summer.
Please contact me if you are able to help us.
