Winter Walk In Recap

Winter Walk In Recap

Does it feel like winter has already passed you by? Are you missing (not missing) the feeling of snow in your boot? If so you’re not alone and you’re welcome to reminisce on some cold days of the past. Here’s a quick recap of our 2017 Winter Walk In, hard to believe it was only 2 weeks ago!

Caleb and Euan pretty pleased with the latest technology in downhill sliding!

Evan, Tiegan, Sarah, Charlie and Duncan made the trek, had a time and survived…even in running shoes! Osler with a “not-sure it’s-4WD-vehicle” made it up and over the big hill, shout-out to Don for helping them leave.

Claire and Keltie supported the players of the big boot hockey game, Wyatt Wallace played his first game ever and it was an unparalleled match of several hours, the likes of which haven’t been seen in many moons!

And someone (Nick Smart) forgot his snowpants – but still managed to have an amazing time! A huge thanks and how how to everyone who came out, and a special thanks to Gavin Grant and Dave Leedy for making it such a smooth operation! We’re already looking forward to the Winter Walk-In of 2018.

Kingston Pizza Party 2016

Kingston Pizza Party 2016

Thanks to Alec Orvis, Program Director 2016, for hosting an incredible Pizza Party on Saturday November 12th, 2016!

A few east coast Ponackians made the long trip to Kingston – Trevor Boothe, and the Goodman brothers Will and Gardiner. As well it was lovely to see Alumni Tyler Ray, venturing all the way from Toronto and of course Program Director emeritus Andrew Dixon from Montreal.

Thanks to the local Queen’s students for filling up the place with great Ponacka cheer. Looking forward to seeing many of them again in December for the annual Staff Christmas Party at the George’s- December 22nd!
