FAST has had an action packed month of activities both on and off the race course.

February 16 was one of the Friends of FAST fun races on Emilys Run at Fernie Alpine Resort.

The theme was PJs and the kids of all ages, four to 16, were happy to put on their jammies and work the dual slalom obstacle course. Top of the course was a busy place with 150 kids lined up in their colourful jammies for the race. Once again Shirley Timm orchestrated the barbecue for all the kids and parents.

FAST also held their bi-annual FAST Gala auction fundraiser on February 16. About 200 adults headed down to the community hall for the “apres ski” event. Delicious food provided by Fernie vendors in addition to music and a live and silent auction made for a very successful event.
