Well the hustle and bustle of the Arctic Winter Games has come to end. Overall the games were a huge success. We couldn’t have asked for primer conditions for the atheletes, or a better turn out to show support. Favorite events included the halp-pipe, boardercross, big air, and moguls. Team Alberta North was a true ambassador and welcomed all competetors vistiting our area. Hats off to team Greenland, who was the underdog in some events (ie. never having any experience). The team showed true spirit in the games and put their heart and effort into every moment.
On another note, Nitehawk will be hosting the annual Snowcross next weekend. The snowcross is an event where bikes are taken through the snow on a series of jumps and turns. Does that not sound like a riot to you? Two differnt races will be held for the next two saturdays (March 21 and 27). Registration fee of $50 will be in place if you wish to compete in both races. If you are not interested in participating in both races a fee of $40 will be put in place. Please note that these fees cover the annual cost of joining the Bikehawks Mountain Bike Club and will get you entry into all summer events as well. You cannot race in any event unless you pay these rather unfortunate fees. Hope to see you out here this weekend!

Yesterday we hosted the RBC cup. This event was hosted with the primary objective of promoting slope style snowboarding among the youth. Over 85 riders came out for this event. These riders were of all skill levels (even never evers!). We would like to thank all the parents with the snowboard club, volunteers, sponsors, and of course the riders who came out! Without you all we could not have made this event the immense success it came to be.
