SOCCER BID SUCCESSFUL
The British Columbia Soccer Association recently approved 100 Mile House’s bid to host the 2015 U13-U15 Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial Cup.
Werner Heine of the 100 Mile House & District Soccer Association says the tournament will not only be a highlight for youth soccer in the community, but it will also “fill up” the town, which will be a benefit for businesses in 100 Mile House and the surrounding areas.
Twenty-four teams from around the province are expected to compete.
SKI SEASON START IDEAL
Local skiers and snowboarders are rejoicing as recreational activities at Mt. Timothy Ski Area have got off to a great start with a lot of snow this season.
Mt. Timothy is located near Lac la Hache, about 40 kilometres north of 100 Mile House.
It is open to the public Friday to Monday on a weekly-basis, and will also be open on Jan. 30.
The hill is open to skiers of all skill levels.
BC WINTER GAMES
100 Mile House hockey players Caily Mellott and Anya Levermann were selected to U16 Team North following recent tryouts in Williams Lake.
The team will compete at the BC Winter Games, which run Feb. 20-23 in Mission.
A total of 36 girls – seven from the 100 Mile House area – skated at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex in Williams Lake hoping to crack the roster on Jan. 4-5.
