President’s Introduction

“…In future years, it is anticipated that this event will continue to grow locally as a sporting opportunity for young skiers, and as a larger outreach opportunity for the ISC. With difficulties in club capacity, including equipment, funding, and volunteers, the ISC hopes to reach out to local and territorial supports, such as Cross Country NWT, Sport North, and the NWT Recreation and Parks Association to seek additional assistance for the event.

The following report describes the vision and outcomes that guided the event and outlines the budget and marketing tools used. A report from the event coordinator and media coverage of the Loppet have been included in the appendix. For additional information or questions about this report, please contact me at patrick@inuvikskiclub.ca.

Thank you,

Patrick Gall
President, Inuvik Ski Club”
