Kootenay Mountaineering Club celebrates 50th anniversary

first_img 2) Serve as a nucleus for people interested in mountaineering and wishing to associate with others of like interests, and The KMC also manages and maintains the four huts on the famous Bonnington Traverse.Highlights of the KMC’s year are the three-one week hiking camp sessions and the Kokanee Glacier ski week. Both are so much in demand that the club holds lotteries to select the participants.The club’s semi-annual socials are always popular for meeting friends and viewing members’ slide shows of some of their more exotic or adventurous trips.Some things have changed in 50 years. While the KMC frowns on motorized, off-road back country recreation, the back country is becoming increasingly crowded with quads, snow mobiles and commercial cat- and heli-skiing operations.The club doesn’t instruct technical climbing anymore, now relying on certified instructors to provide its members more advanced training.When the KMC isn’t in the back country having fun, some challenges of a different nature are taken on. In the early years, the club lobbied successfully for preservation of Kokanee Glacier Park and the formation of the Valhalla Provincial Park and the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy.Today, the KMC is actively trying to keep the Jumbo Valley ‘wild’ and is rallying opposition to the resort’s development.Another concern is that, while access to the back country is better than it was in the 60’s thanks to logging roads, today many of the forestry roads are being decommissioned and some of the favorite hiking and climbing destinations are once again becoming difficult to impossible to access.On (Saturday) June 7 the KMC will celebrate its 50th anniversary and host the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC’s AGM in Castlegar.The club is partnering with the FMCBC to fill the 200+ seats in the Old Castlegar Theatre to hear guest speaker, Dave Quinn, the ‘Outdoor Guy’ on CBC Radio West, talk that evening about conservation issues and his adventures in the Kootenays.The KMC looks forward to meeting the FMCBC Directors representing 31 outdoor clubs from around the province and sharing concerns, solutions and inspirations.Check outKMC at:    http://www.kootenaymountaineering.bc.ca 3) Maintain records of pertinent information on trips in the Kootenay area.The club still does all of this, but 50 years ago the logging industry had not cut many roads into the mountains and access to some of the most beautiful Kootenay country was difficult.The early years of the club saw much effort directed into cutting a trail into Mulvey Basin in the Valhallas from where, if not a first summit, then second or third ascents could be launched.Many trails were cut in the KMC’s early years and first ascents were made throughout the Kootenays by KMC members. Weekly rock climbing classes were conducted and early records abound with accounts of very technical climbs. Ski touring and hiking in Kokanee Glacier Park was and still is popular.The old Slocan Chief cabin, built in 1896 to service mining operations in the Kokanee Glacier area, hosted many KMC winter and summer outings.The cabin still exists but today it houses historical information displays and the luxurious Kokanee Glacier Lodge has become the main destination for overnight trips since it was built 10 years ago.center_img The Kootenay Mountaineering Club celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014.The KMC existed as a section of the Alpine Club of Canada for its first five years, but went its own way when it could not or would not persuade sufficient numbers to sign up with the ACC.Today, the KMC numbers over 300 members and schedules more than 100 outdoor trips and activities every year. Its membership resides primarily in the West Kootenays with most members residing within the Rossland-Trail-Castlegar-Nelson corridor.Fifty years ago the KMC’s constitution stated the objectives of the club were to: 1)  Maintain a program of climbs during the summer season and ski touring trips in the winter and spring,last_img read more

Who is Jose Mourinho’s assistant Joao Sacramento at Tottenham?

first_imgJOSE MOURINHO has ended his 11-month hiatus in management to take over the reins at Tottenham.He replaces Mauricio Pochettino at the helm at Spurs, who currently sit 14th in the Premier League ahead of the weekend’s fixture against West Ham.3 Joao Sacramento will become Jose Mourinho’s new assistant at TottenhamCredit: Getty – ContributorYet, with just days to go until his first match against Tottenham boss, Mourinho will have to get his backroom staff in order.The Portuguese coach often picks a familiar team to help him with his duties, but has previously remarked that a change of guard is a possibility.Who is Jose Mourinho’s new assistant coach?No, it is not Rui Faria. It is Joao Sacramento.The Telegraph have revealed that the Lille assistant will join up with Mourinho at Tottenham, following his appointment.Sacramento hails from Barcelos, just north of Porto, where Faria was also born.But rather than remaining in his home nation to learn the trade, he headed for south Wales, attending University of Glamorgan.Sacramento completed degree in sports coaching and a Masters in performance coaching, where he also took on the assistant’s role for uni team.While in Wales, the Portguese coach became a performance analyst intern at the nation’s FA, working under Gary Speed and Chris Coleman, before getting his big break a year later at Monaco in April 2014.His work there saw him help build the foundations to their 2017 title success, having moved to Lille to become assistant coach under Christophe Galtier in the January before.Most Read In FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himIs Rui Faria joining Mourinho’s backroom staff?Mourinho and Faria have been almost inseparable in coaching since Jose’s early coaching days at Barcelona.Back then, the three-time Premier League winner was serving under Louis van Gaal when his fellow countryman visited Camp Nou for a seminar.The pair clicked immediately, with Mourinho choosing Faria to be his assistant and fitness coach in his first managerial role at Uniao Leiria.Since then, the 44-year-old has been number two at Porto, Chelsea (twice), Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United.But since Mourinho’s sacking from the Red Devils, Faria has made his first foray into senior management with Al-Duhail in Qatar.And they are currently going strong, sitting top of the QNB Stars League table and unbeaten after ten games.With the acquisition of Joao Sacramento, the possibility of a Mourinho-Faria reunion is minuscule at the moment.3 Rui Faria will not be Jose Mourinho’s assistant at Tottenham with the Portuguese coach currently managing in QatarCredit: Getty Images – GettyWho else could be in line for a backroom position?Another regular feature in Mourinho’s staff has been goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro.He has also followed his fellow countryman around Europe, helping to improve the likes of Petr Cech, Iker Casillas, Julio Cesar and David de Gea.But Mourinho has stated recently that he will be finding new members to his staff, with Louro among those missing out.He will instead be replaced by Nuno Santos, also joining from Lille.Venezuelan Carlos Lalin has also been a repetitive figure among Mourinho’s backroom staff, but looks set to stay, with the Telegraph reporting that he will be the fitness trainer.Giovanni Cerra and Ricardo Formosinho are also expected to reprise their roles as an analyst and scout respectively.3last_img read more

NZ Football to mount Olympic appeal

first_imgNew Zealand were kicked out of the under-23 tournament this month, after their beaten semi-final opponents Vanuatu successfully protested that South African-born defender Deklan Wynne was ineligible for the Oly-Whites.The Oceania Football Confederation disciplinary committee last week provided a written explanation for the disqualification.The reasons will be disputed by NZF following scrutiny from its lawyers.”Having had the opportunity to review all of the information now available, we remain disappointed at the sequence of events that led to the harsh decision to disqualify our team,” Martin said in a statement.”The executive committee has therefore unanimously agreed that there are sufficient grounds to appeal, both in terms of the process undertaken, and the rules applied. We will be filing our appeal later this week.”Auckland-based Wynne, 20, holds a New Zealand passport and has played three senior internationals for the All Whites.The OFC cited football governing body FIFA statutes which say a player must have resided in a country for five years after the age of 18 if he doesn’t have parental or grandparental bloodlines.Martin confirmed an internal review was under way at NZF to ensure the issue of player eligibility doesn’t arise again at an international tournament.last_img read more

Mirandés leaves San Sebastián alive and the semifinal of Copa will be decided in Anduva

first_imgA gray Real Sociedad wins by the minimum (2-1) to Iraola’sMatheus’s goal gives a lot of life to those of Miranda de Ebro The ‘rojillos’ were stretched on a shot by Álvaro Rey with more danger than Remiro imagined and shortly thereafter came the draw after a sensational robbery by Malsa. The ball fell on Mattheus’s feet and the rest was as usual. Trimming and stumbling shot that could not stop the San Sebastian goal.The goal was the sixth of Mattheus in the Cup, who has a special idyll with the ‘K.O’ tournament, after complicating the life of Le Normand, and surprising the old Anoeta with an excellent resource to define in the heart of the area. The goal blew up the thousand followers of the Mirandés who traveled to Euskadi.However, before the break, the Royal Society found excessive prize in a personal play by Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian shot Limones, his rejection was not taken advantage of by Portu, but a second rejection returned to the boots of the player assigned by Real Madrid, who this time did not forgive to place the 2-1.Everything indicated that the second part would serve the ‘txuri urdines’ to extend the rent and leave the tie very on track, but quite the opposite. Those of Iraola rearmed defensively and endured perfectly. Of course, the home enjoyed up to two clear occasions through the mediation of Portu and Isak, the Swede went empty for the first time in the last seven games.Antonio Sánchez also tried his luck with a shot from a distance, but he didn’t beat Remiro either. The game ended with the result at the break and with the feeling that Mirandés will have many options to play the first final of its history on March 4.DATA SHEET.–OUTCOME: REAL SOCIEDAD, 2 – MIRANDÉS, 1 (2-1, at rest).– ALIGNMENTS.REAL SOCIETY: I remove; Zaldua, Aritz (Guevara, min. 68), Le Normand, Monreal; Merino, Zubeldia, Odegaard; Portu (Januzaj, min.77), Isak (Willian José, min.68) and Oyarzabal.MIRANDÉS CD: Lemons; A.Gonzalez, Onaindia, S.Gonzalez, Kijera; Malsa, Antonio Sánchez (Álvaro Peña, min. 77), Rey (Vicente, min. 86), Guridi, Merquelanz; and Mattheus (De Sousa, min. 70).– GOALS:1 – 0, min. 9, Oyarzabal, penalty.1 – 1, min. 40, Mattheus.2 – 1, min. 42, Odegaard.–REFEREE: Gil Manzano (C. Extremeño). Amonestó with yellow card to Monreal (min.17), Oyarzabal (min.48) and Zaldua (min.82) in the Real Sociedad; and to Kijera (min. 45) in Mirandés.–STADIUM: Reale Arena. 35,194 spectators. The Mirandés came out with a lot of life from San Sebastián after falling in the first round of semifinals by the minimum (2-1) and will play in Anduva with many options to fight for their first Copa del Rey final, while the Royal Society wasted the opportunity to leave the qualifying hearing for sentencing.The reddish box, in the semifinals for the second time in its history, gave face in Donosti and did it with a version of a lot of work, a lot of courage and a lot of daring. Andoni Iraola’s pupils were not impressed by either the stage, or the rival, or the pressure that history added to them.And that the movie did not start in the best possible way for the Castilian-Leonese. At seven minutes, a discreet Odei penalty on Portu was decreed as a maximum penalty by Gil Manzano and the VAR did not have to interfere with the decision of the referee. Oyarzabal launched from eleven meters and demonstrated its enormous reliability. Seven penalties and seven goals.The 1-0 did not intimidate the Burgos, quite the contrary, who bet on the counterattack and the speed of their gangs to disturb those of Imanol Alguacil. The Real was far from its best level, but the difference in category was already a plus that was noticed from the beginning. However, the Mirandés did not hit the knee and never gave up.center_img Photo: EFElast_img read more

Nuno: “There are people who are dying and we are here playing a soccer game, it is absurd”

first_img“You play a soccer game, but look what is happening all over the world, with sick people, people who are dying …. “Nuno told ‘BT Sport’, before his team jumped onto the field to face Olympiacos in the second European competition.“There are people who die and you are here playing a soccer game. It’s stupid“added the Portuguese coach, whose team has played behind closed doors against the Greeks.”Playing without fans does not make sense, football serves to entertain and we play for them“he added. “The current situation is above football, we have to know it, and everyone is concerned. Closing the stadium door is not the solution, all this is not normal“Nuno explained to Sky Sports in the pre-match against Olympiacos.”Why don’t we stop? It is dangerous to continue with this attitude“he finished.Solbakken: “I was surprised by UEFA’s arrogance”The Copenhagen coach also expressed his disagreement with the fact that the match was played normally: “It should never have been played. It has been a very, very difficult day for players due to the development of the coronavirus in Denmark. They have wives, children, parents and grandparents that they think about. It’s amazing that they came out and played like tonight. It bears witness to a collective strength and support system across the team. “He also charged against UEFA: “I’m amazed at UEFA’s arrogance and was even more upset when I went down to the locker room after the game and heard that from tomorrow onwards all matches in Turkey would be played without fans.. There is no point in talking about the match today, but everyone has made a fantastic effort. In my opinion, this tournament fell today. “ Wolverhampton Wanderers coach Nuno Espírito Santo strongly criticized the decision of UEFA to make them play this Thursday the first leg of the round of 16 of the Europa League and assured that it is “absurd” because there are people who are “dying”.last_img read more

It is one year since Bale’s last goal at the Santiago Bernabéu

first_imgLast season he would still participate in three more games in the white coliseum (against Huesca, the only one who completed, Eibar and Athletic), but he did not see a door. And in the current one, there is a devastating fact: he has only completed one meeting of the seven that has been available to Zidane. It is true that he has had various muscle injuries (ankle problems, soleus injuries) to be off. But also There have been other factors: he did not play against Levante (Matchday 4) this season when he was sent off. for double yellow at Villarreal, for example, and also because the Welshman has not played his part in his relationship with the coach, who has always sought to reintegrate him with the group. Last season, without going any further, he decided to go to Wales after losing in Vallecas with Rayo: he asked that a club car take him to the airport from the Vallecano stadium, something that angered and deteriorated his relationship with the coach: he was not called for the penultimate match at home, against Villarreal, and the final match of the season saw him from the bench.This year he returned to repeat incident: Zidane decided not to summon him for the match against Osasuna (it was played during the week) with the intention that he would be fresh for the derby against Atlético. The player did not like this technical decision. Against the rojiblancos he was apathetic and was not called up for the match against Bruges on the return of the Champions League to the Bernabéu. What’s more, that day he arrived with the game started (it started at 18:00 and the Welshman entered the stadium minutes later). Since then, either he has not finished a game, or he has entered from the bench, or he has seen him from his seat with the rest of his teammates. He has only completed one match at the Bernabéu this year: in the draw against Valladolid on the second day of the League… Gareth Bale (30 years) star again: It is a year since his last goal at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. On March 16, 2019, Madrid received Celta in a cloudy environment. When Zidane returned to the Madrid bench, he was joined by the disappointment of a fans who had seen how in just one week he had lost any chance of lifting a second title after lifting the Club World Cup in December 2018. Zizou returned to the one he had It was his home and he did it looking back at a series of players who had been portrayed in the eyes of the white parish. One of them was Bale himself.After a bland first half, the Whites would end up imposing themselves 2-0. The second goal was the work of the white 11: it was an advance by Marcelo on the left wing in the 77th minute. The Brazilian focused on Bale, who burst through the center. He controlled the ball. He put it on his right leg and did not hesitate: He released a cross shoe that touched the post and entered. It was his eighth goal in LaLiga 2018-19 (the fourteenth in the entire season, after another three goals in the Champions League and another three in the Club World Cup) … and the last goal of the white winger that the Madrid stadium has seen since then.last_img read more
