BCSF Excellence Award for Tourism Fernie and RDEK
The Fernie Snowmobile Association was honoured June 15 to assist the British Columbia Snowmobile Federation – BCSF in presenting Fernie BC and the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) the BCSF Excellence Award for Tourism Promotion and Development.
Both organizations have played integral roles in the success of snowmobiling in Fernie, most recently through their support of the completion of the Snowmobile Economic Impact Study and emergency funding to repair flood damage to recreation trails.
The BCSF Excellence Award is given each year to a tourism association or organization that has shown outstanding innovation and achievement in the development and implementation of a snowmobile tourism program or original initiative that, has resulted in positive media recognition or increased participation from snowmobilers and/or non-snowmobilers.
The net result is to have been a contribution to increasing the image and exposure of snowmobiling and the growth of the sport in that area, region, or community.
In so doing, the recipient must have demonstrated a willingness to work closely with members of the organized snowmobiling community.
Thank you Jikke Gyorki (Tourism Fernie) and RDEK Electoral Area A Director Mike Sosnowski (pictured above and below with FSA members) for your notable efforts toward supporting organized snowmobiling and winter recreation opportunities in our community.
