Peter’s Retirement Party

November 4, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


It’s the end of an era…and the start of something new for Peter and all of us here at Thunder Bay Nordic Trails!

We are sad to announce that Peter Crooks is retiring from the position of Manager at Thunder Bay Nordic Trails and we wish him well as he moves on to new adventures…that hopefully won’t require as much coffee or such an intermittent sleep schedule!

Please join us for an open house farewell party for Peter. Come out and celebrate all the years and memories by roasting and toasting Peter on the open mike!

DATE: Saturday, November 4th from 5 to 9 pm

LOCATION: Sleeping Giant Brewing Company, 712 Macdonell St.

DETAILS: Tickets are $20 and will get you in the door, as well as beef on a bun, pizza and salad, plus a contribution toward a gift. Tickets are available at Fresh Air, at Kamview during the Fall Colours Tour (October 15), and at Kamview during the Ski Swap (October 19, 20 & 21). There are limited tickets available, so don’t delay! Get yours today! All ages welcome. Brewery bar will be open. ID required.

Peter’s snow grooming skills and snow phone updates are legendary and will be greatly missed, but have no fear, he’s not going very far and has promised to step back in when the need arises. There is a great article in the February 2017 issue of The Walleye by local author, Bonnie Schiedel that highlights Peter’s career. Check it out here!


It’s often been said that it would take three people to replace Peter, but we’ve found someone who is up to the task and we look forward to a great season ahead.

We’d like to put together a slide show of Peter in action over the years, so if you have any photos to contribute, please email them to Ross at treeguy@tbaytel.net.

All of us here at TBNT extend our warmest congratulations to Peter on his retirement.

See you on the trails,
The TBNT Board of Directors
