LEISURE TIMES: Summer programs abound

As I write this article we have just had an amazing stretch of weather during July but the rain has returned for the long weekend.

Major races and runs planned

As amazing as it may seem we have 11 major runs and races scheduled for Summerland in 2013.

The novice level Summerland Ultra Jets placed second overall in the Princeton Posse Novice Tournament which hosted six Okanagan area teams Feb. 22 to 24. The Ultra Jets played five games over the course of the weekend facing formidable rivals on several occasions. Anthony Brunner won fastest speed skating in the skills competition. MVP players were Dahnte Nackoney, Morgan Gove, Tyler Algar, Anthony Brunner and Everett Miller. In the back row from left are Dan St. Hilaire, Alfredo Monaghan, Morgan Gove, Tyler Algar, Glen Herman, Anthony Brunner, Logan Miller, Kent Miller, Dahnte Nackoney and Everett Miller. In front from left are Finn Alexander, Branden Tutkaluk, Leigha Herman and Sydney St. Hilaire.

Lots of hockey action still to come

Thoughts of getting out on playing fields or the golf course become prominent again.
