On Monday, October 2nd the Omineca Ski Club was presented with the Minister’s Award for excellence in woodlot management.  It came with a cheque for $2500 that will be used to purchase some legacy items (such as updated metal trail signs and possibly a water filtration system for the kitchen).  Alison Patch was on hand at the Annual General Meeting of the Federation of BC Woodlot Associations/Woodlot Product Development Council to accept on our behalf.  The award was presented by Dave Petersen on behalf of the Minister, Doug Donaldson.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who have managed the woodlot over the years – we couldn’t have done it without you!  In fact, we are currently harvesting near the Twister and Boulder trails in an attempt to reduce blowdown across the trails.  Watch out for logging trucks on the road until the end of October…  The sale of the wood is integral to the long term financial stability of our club.  Want to plant some trees next spring?
