Journey to the Merry Wives of Widsor, Day 5. Last day of skiing

On March, 2, 2012, It was the last day of skiing at Strathcona Wilderness Centre.  I was finished all my races and our skiing team got to go on a leisure ski on the Wagon Wheel Trail and do some uphill skiing on the Coyote Trail.

After our lesure ski on the Wagon Wheel Trail, the races were underway. The 7.5 Km race was the final race of the season.

After the races were over, it was time to relax and enjoy lunch under the big top.

After lunch, it was time for closing Podium.  The volunteers pose for a photo op in front of the podium.

The award presenters prepare to hand out the Just As Bold Medals to the athleates who did their best in their sport, Uphill Skiing.

The Golden Arrow flight taxies onto the runway at Strathcona Wilderness Centre for the last time.  It was time to fly back to Edomonton City Centre Airport and retire to the hotel for the night.

The oversized baggage is removed from the cargo van at the hotel and stored in the upper room until it's time to get on the plane home on March 4th, 2012.

Two large planes are parked on the tarmac at Edmonton City Centre Airport.

The afternoon was laidback.  It was spent relaxing in the hotel.  I got on the computer played my favorite clicking game, Donkey Mails. 

Dinner in the Newman Newstone Dining Room was relaxing.  There was no rush to get on a bus to travel anywhere.

At 8:00 PM an advanced screening of The Muppets was held in the Wild Rose Cinema to wind down the evening.

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Following the day's competion, it was back to the hotel to get freshened up for Supper at the Newman Newstone Dining room.

Promptly at 6:00 PM, it was time to board Golden Arrow Airlines for a breif flight to the Mayfield Inn for the Healthy Athleates and Magic Show.  The Eye exam took too long and I wanted to see the magic show. 

This is the latest line-up at the Mayfield Dinner Theatre.  On March 5, 2008, I watched Beauty and the Beast at the Stage West Dinner Theatre. 

This is what Oral Cancer looks like.  If you smoke cigarettes your chances of oral cancer increases.  Don't Smoke Cigarettes.  They are Dirty!
