Decision made to reopen Naramata Centre for 2016 season

April 30, 2016 by  

The Naramata Centre, which is located near Penticton, will once again be opening its doors for another summer season.

The facility offers a variety of programs that bring people closer to each other and the environment around them. It also strives to promote leadership and provide a place where the arts can thrive. Although it was closed in January of 2015, due to the enthusiasm of the local community and the help of volunteers, the decision was made to reopen it on a trial basis for the 2016 season.

There are several different accommodations available, including both serviced and unserviced camp sites, cottages and hotel-style rooms. Those who wish to stay at the site do not need to participate in the programming, but can do so if they wish. It is also available for those who are looking for a place to stay while they enjoy all that the Okanagan area has to offer.

Along with accommodations, there is a beach to enjoy as well as other amenities. Brochures can be printed to help promote facilities such as this to those who may be interested in making plans for the summer or fall.

The season will run from May 28 until October 15. Those who are interested in staying at the Naramata Centre or signing up for one of its programs can find further details on its website.

Zero-emission go-karts to take to the streets

April 28, 2016 by  

An event will soon take place in New Westminster that will put a whole new face on go-kart racing.

The zero-emission vehicles will take to a uniquely designed route that includes sharp corners, a drop in elevation and other elements to challenge the drivers. It is the first of a series of races known as G-Zero.

The vehicles will be very different from the traditional, combustion engine style of karts, and according to the race’s organizers, they will be far quieter and less intrusive to the downtown area in which the event will be held. A variety of ad specialties can be designed and then produced to help promote this particular route and the new style of racing.

To help promote the race and this new form of go-karting, the organizers brought one of the vehicles to the city for officials to try out. Mayor Jonathan Cote commented that it is exciting for the community to be able to host the first event in the G-Zero series, and he is pleased that it will also showcase its downtown core. This can generate interest for both tourists and those who may be looking for a venue that would be well suited to their particular plans

The G-Zero championship races will take place on June 11th and 12th. Further details can be found on the organizers’ website.
