“It’s time once again for another Little Critter Criterium! Criterium style rides are where competitors complete as many laps of a short course as possible in the allotted time. For every lap of the course completed the rider puts his/her name in for draw prizes. This fun event is geared to riders 12 years and under. (Training wheels are not appropriate, run bikes and tag along bikes are okay.) You must have a current FMBC membership which can be found online at www.bikefernie.ca
P.S. Parents…wear running shoes as your children are faster than your flip-flops!”
We took the kids and an extra friend on a Lazy Lizard bike ride yesterday and I really enjoyed a few things about it. I love the trail, the flow of climbs and descends make the trail manageable, it’s busy (which some people won’t like but I do because I feel like there’s enough noise around to keep the wildlife away) and the kids can do it. It’s my kind of bike ride!

“In case you’re visiting the Fernie Golf and Country Club…don’t forget to pop into the Cast Iron Grill Fernie! Winter hours are: Thursdays from 5:00-8:00pm and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays noon-8:00pm.”
The Abstract Lions art club is on! Our weekly Wednesday after-school arts club begins today and Raegan and I are super excited to get started. We will start with Line and continue each week with a different element of art. Drop-ins are welcome at $16/session but the kids still need to be registered. You can do that by going directly to: The Abstract Lion Art Club.
If you know anyone that might be interested, please feel free to pass on the information. Wednesdays, 3:45-4:45, upstairs at The Arts Station, for kids 7-11 years old (but if your kid is keen on participating we won’t turn anyone away) from January 23rd to March 13th.

A lot like other years, since our family grew, New Years Eve plans have changed a bit. We’re not drinking and partying until 5 in the morning (not that I ever really did that). This year we’re thinking of taking the kids up to the hill, cooking hotdogs at the bottom of mighty moose, do some night skiing and sledding, watching the fireworks at 9 and then head home to put the kids to bed. How times have changed! I’m kind of looking forward to it, though. An easy and fun time with the kids and a nice quiet evening with Robo. Let’s see if this pans out the way I think or perhaps my husband will be out partying like it’s 2008, not unlikely, and I’ll have a nice quiet evening with my TV. I’ve started watching Letterkenny, a show set in a small Ontario town, which I didn’t think would grab me the way it is and that’s all I want to watch now. Bringing in the new year with Wayne, Daryl and Dan!

“Dickens’ Christmas Party: Saturday, Dec 22nd, 2:00-4:00 pm
Join us for cider, stories, treats, and activities for all ages. This annual library event is a wonderful chance to connect with your neighbours. The afternoon concludes with a rousing community Christmas carol led by local community musicians. All are welcome.”
I’m a big believer in the Fernie Heritage Library and their programs but this is, honestly, one I try to avoid because it’s so popular. I’m not a fan of so many people in tight spaces. But I do know it’s a good time and hosted by amazing people.
