Mono Nordic Trail Run

A long time Mono Nordic Ski Club racer, Alexander Maycock, recently brought forth the idea to host a Mono Nordic trail running race at Park. As a ski racer at Mono Nordic for over 8 years, the 18 year old has had the privilege of racing all across North America and parts of Europe, including Austria and Switzerland.Alexander This past winter, he reached a big goal by earning a Canadian National Championship gold medal in the team sprint event at the 2018 Canadian Ski Nationals
in Thunder Bay. In addition to his early University ski racing success, he represented Orangeville District Secondary School earning two OFSAA Championship titles.

Alexander has big goals ahead of him including to represent Canada at the FISU World University Games in March of 2019 in Russia and 2021 in Switzerland. He has goals of representing Canada at the World Junior Championships and World Under 23 Championships to eventually ski for Canada on the World Cup Circuit and at the Olympics in 2022, 2026 and 2030. Alexander has dedicated about 8 years of consistent training to Nordic skiing, and this year he has plans to train over 650 hours in order to work towards his ambitious, yet achievable goals. The cost of this training will be significant. His 2018-2019 ski year will cost him over $10, 000. 

The Town Council supports Alexander Maycock’s ambitions to be named to Canada’s Olympic Team and have waived the $216 rental fee for the Monora Park multipurpose room. The $95 rental fee for the Monora Park grounds has also been waived for the purpose of holding the “Mono Nordic Trail Run.” The "Mono Nordic Trail Race" is a fundraising event to support Alexander Maycock and will take place on Saturday, August 4, 2018.

Dufferin County - Bringing Broadband to Everyone

Residents of Dufferin County, farmers and business owners are encouraged to participate in a brief web survey to help build "broadband for everyone" in Southwestern Ontario, Caledon, Dufferin and the Niagara Region.  

When it comes to broadband Internet, there are considerable disparities in access and capacity between our rural and urban communities. The social and economic value of high-speed connectivity is set to explode over the next ten years, and unless we act now, those disparities will only grow wider and more serious in their implications. For this reason, The County of Dufferin, has partnered with SouthWestern Integrated Fibre Technology Inc. (SWIFT) to collect information about how residents, farms and businesses currently use the Internet. Your participation in this 15-minute survey is completely voluntary and you may opt out of any question in the survey. All of your responses will be kept confidential. They will only be used for statistical purposes and will be reported only in aggregated form. Participants should have their Telecom Service Provider name and contract information at hand.  
To complete the survey, please visit www.swiftnetwork.ca/survey

About the SWIFT Initiative

SouthWestern Integrated Fibre Technology Inc. (SWIFT) is a not-for-profit, collective broadband initiative that is funding the construction of an affordable, open-access, ultra-high-speed fibre-optic regional broadband network for everyone in Southwestern Ontario, Caledon and the Niagara Region. To overcome our region's broadband infrastructure gaps, SWIFT has developed a long-term plan to help more than 3.5 million Ontarians, or 25% of Ontario's population, to connect and keep pace in a changing digital world. The project is leveraging $180 million in combined investments by the federal and provincial governments and over $17 million in investments by municipalities across the region. SWIFT membership is open to any community or organization that needs connectivity to any of its locations. Members benefit from SWIFT's significant procurement expertise, including aggregated demand, negotiated rates, and support in preparing RFPs for broadband services. As a buying group, SWIFT also ensures greater competition between telecom service providers which will lead to better services at lower prices in member communities. https://www.dufferincounty.ca/files/releases/2018-05-01_Help_us_bring_br...
