Presentation: The Early Days of Skiing in Gatineau Park with Charles Hodgson
Location: Chelsea Library, 100 Old Chelsea Rd., Chelsea
When: Monday, February 18, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Charles Hodgson, who collected and made available electronic
versions of hundreds of old Ottawa Ski Club newsletters through the
GVHS website, will tell us some of the lesser known stories from the
early days of skiing in the Gatineau. Did you know that skiers and
the NCC have had a love-hate relationship for nearly three-quarters
of a century now? Where exactly do you think the Pink Lake ski
lodge was located? Why doesn’t Frank’s Trail appear on many of the
early maps?

The Society AGM and elections will be held and our annual reports distributed. Nominations for the Executive will be accepted until February 15, 2013 – contact [email protected]
