Bunnyrabbit / Jackrabbit
Year-End Windup
March 13

A beautiful day in Regina for Jackrabbit windup! Plus 13 on March 13th!
Due to the temperature we were able to have our windup games played on Leibel Field. Usually we have skis on but shoes on artificial grass is just on fun!

Jackrabbits played soccer, “giant-ball” four square, tug-a-war while the Bunnyrabbits played British Bulldog and Duck-Duck-Goose.

Thank you all rabbits, coaches, volunteers and gift sponsors for making this event a success!

Nordic Trip to Duck Mountain

The March 5 Nordic trip to Duck Mountain, our last of the season, was a great success. There was plenty of freshly-groomed snow and bright sunlight, although temperatures around zero made waxing a bit tricky.
The skiers enjoyed a buffet supper at the Iron Grill in Kamsack afterward.
Thanks to Sylvie Roy and Rob Wright for organizing the trip, including moving it from Kenosee to Duck Mountain.

The Regina Ski Club

The Regina Ski Club (RSC) provides programs, events and trips for all ages and levels of skiers, individuals and families alike. Club volunteers pack and set ski trails at the White Butte Recreation area north of Emerald Park, and within city limits in Wascana Center and a number of city park locations.

Our mission is to create opportunities for recreational and competitive Nordic (cross country) and Alpine (downhill) skiing and snowboarding. The spirit of the club is aptly summed up by our motto: fun, friendship, fitness!
