Get your team in
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The annual Walk To Tuk event, organized by the NWT Recreation and Parks Association, is already underway and your last chance to get in on the action is fast approaching.
The Walk To Tuk is a community walking event that challenges teams to walk 1,658 kilometres - or the length of the Mackenzie River to Tuktoyaktuk from Fort Providence - in January and February.
Teams can be up to 20 people, or 35 for school teams. One hour of combined walking equals five kilometres for teams of 10 or less and four kilometres for teams of 11 to 20.
The last day to register for the walk is Monday at 5 p.m. by contacting Sheena Tremblay.
Venue change for playdowns
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The NWT representative for the 2017 Tim Hortons Brier will be decided at the Yellowknife Curling Club on Thursday.
Fort Smith was slated to host the qualifier for the Canadian men's curling championship but the NWT Curling Association decided last week to move it here due to there being three teams from Yellowknife and one team from Fort Smith.
Jamie Koe, Steve Moss and Greg Skauge will skip the Yellowknife entries. It all begins at 8:10 p.m. with the first draw.
Swim camp continues
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The senior portion of the Polar Bear Swim Club wrapped up for the Frost Bite Swim Camp last weekend and now it's time for the juniors.
The Belugas, Sharks and Junior Cubs will be at the Ruth Inch Memorial Pool beginning this evening at 4 p.m. The focus for the juniors will be on stroke development and, just as she did with the senior camp, Polar Bear graduate Cassey Mooney will be the lead coach on deck.
The camp will wrap up tomorrow with the second and final session beginning at 6 a.m.
