Re: A challenge for Pique (letters Oct. 8)

The Cheakamus Challenge course runs 72.5 km from Squamish to Whistler and we have always tried to cleanup the course as soon as possible after the event each year. Each section has a person who is responsible for cleaning up all markers and event related trash by the Monday following the event. This year was no exception and I was under the impression from all our volunteers that we had it completed by Sunday, Sept. 26th. When I spoke to the person who was responsible for cleaning up from Chance Creek to Pinecrest he told me it would be done on Monday the 27th but obviously this was not the case.

I will make sure, personally, that the course is completely clean of our markers in the future as well as cleaning up many markers left over from other events and contractors who work in this area.

Re: Winter Olympic ski jump location

Just wondering....

Why is the ski jump going to be up some valley, a very long way away from those who may use it when the Games are gone?

Most Olympic villages (Cortina, Innsbruck, etc.) have ski jumps in town somewhere where we can all look up at various times with our mouths agape.

They tend to get used again that way.

Re: Muni Workers something special (Pique letters Oct. 8)

To Marja Whitton, Kara-Leah Grant and all others who have forwarded comments. Thank you for noticing. Yes, it’s a job. Yes, we get paid for it. But it’s words like yours that puts the smile on our faces.
