Silent Bottle Drive - Thank You!

BIG thanks to everybody who donated bottles and cans this summer to raise money for the River City Racers Speed Skating Club. The Wynne and Currie skaters raised $375! Ice time does not come cheap and new equipment is needed so this is a great boost to the club. Thanks so much!

So long Woody Life, hello Kami Log Cabins

From this new website called Kami Log Cabins it looks like we have a vacation village in the community. There's some interesting and somewhat conflicting information on the site. For example, the link to the "register" page takes you to a form to request information:
If you would like more information about KAMI at lac le jeune including selling schedules, please complete this registration.
Yet these bold letters are at the bottom of every page:
On the "about" page the description needs a little editing. :-)
Just two hours from Vancouver, nestled between pine...
I think the pine trees came down last week! And I think 2 hours from Vancouver won't get you much beyond Hope.

Anyway, I don't have any information about the project, but thought others might be interested in seeing this site.

Lac Le Jeune Quilters

I'm new to Lac Le Jeune as of this past summer and I'm a longtime quiltmaker. I have learned that I'm not the only one here at the lake with an interest in quilts, so I thought it might be fun to have an informal get together at my house. We'll have a little show and tell and perhaps this will be the start of a small quilt group right here at Lac Le Jeune. And if you have never made a quilt, that's OK! If you know of others who might be interested, please let them know. I hope to see you on Thursday, October 2, from 1:00 to 4:00. My house is on the little lake--the first house as you walk or drive from the lodge entrance. My number is 250-372-8612 if you have questions or email me if you'd prefer: Hope to see you then . . . and be sure to bring quilts to share if you have them.

Hunting season is here!

A reminder that hunting season is here. Yesterday Pam and I ran into four hunters on the Stake Lake ski trails. It is legal for them to be there (Can you believe that hunting is legal on recreational trails???). So be aware when you are out walking or biking.

Geocaching around Lac Le Jeune

We love what the Lac Le Jeune area provides in the way of outdoor activities.
Hiking, mountain biking, water sports, snowmobiling, X-country skiing, 4x4ing, the list is endless.
If you have GPS, a sense of adventure and enjoy these outdoor activities, you should try geocaching!

What is Geocaching? Think of it as a hi-tech treasure hunt. A geocacher hides a container (the cache), then posts the cache coordinates and description on an Internet website allowing others to hunt for the cache. There are about 20 caches placed in the Lac Le Jeune area ranging in size from a small magnetic container up to a large ammo-can. They contain at minimum a log book which you sign, and some contain small trade items, usually things from a dollar store.
Some caches require a short walk, others require a hike, bike ride or a trip in a boat.
It's a fun activity for the whole family.
