Some Old, but Great News!

Forgive me for not posting this sooner everyone, but it turns out Corner Brook’s skate park is finally going to be upgraded!  Whenever the weather permits in the spring, the city will be installing two new pieces, a grind box, and a picnic table (pictured above).  These designs came from the input of our very own skaters, and they will be installed by the Canadian Ramp Company (the same guys who gave us new equipment last year).  A big thank you goes out to everyone involved!

Harbour Haunt 2013 not happening

Sorry folks, Harbour Haunt 2013 is officially a no go.  The reason being is that we simply could not find a space in time this year to host our event.  All of us involved with Harbour Haunt have been desperately hunting for a place since early September with no luck.   Practically all of the vacant spaces in Corner Brook were not available to us because the property owners were only interested in long-term investors.  Basically, they were only looking to sell their spaces; not just donate or rent them to us for only two weeks.  And before anyone asks why we could not host it at any of the previous venues we had in previous years, it is because those spaces are now occupied with offices or are under construction.  It gravely saddens me to report this, and I deeply hope that we find a space in time next year for Harbour Haunt 2014.


Again, I am truly sorry for this news,

CYN Fitness Group

Hello everyone, we’ve got a brand spanking new steady program starting up at CYN Corner Brook.  If you want to lose a few pounds, gain some muscle, or even just want to become a little healthier, then maybe you should drop over to CYN every Thursday night at 6pm and join our Fitness Group.  Each night we head over to the gym and start out with a structured routine.  The routines depend on what everyone wants; typically they’ll be body building or cardio based routines, but remember, they can change based upon whatever you request!  After the structured routine segment, you’ll have free-time in the gym to do whatever you please.  This program will continue to be offered as long as people keep showing up.  So, spread the word and come on over to get fit!

New CYN Youth Workers

Hey, in case you haven’t dropped over to CYN since the summer, we’ve gained three new youth workers – one of which, you may already recognize.  Chris, the long, blonde haired dude on the left, was with us last winter until the spring, where he had to take off to St. John’s to teach and give kayak tours.  Kaitlin, the only female picture above, is brand new to us; as is Corey, the guy giving us a thumbs up on the right.  Along with DJ, our Youth Centre Coordinator, and me, Ern, CYN’s current Youth Liaison Worker, we may just have the best youth worker crew this CYN has ever seen!  Here’s too high hopes and a welcome (back) to our new workers!

CYN Film Club

Hey everyone, starting this Saturday night (Sept 21), and every second Saturday afterward, CYN will be hosting its own Film Club.  We’re basically going to be watching a bunch of classic films that you may not have seen before, including oldies, foreigners, and even some silent ones!  It’s all in an attempt to make you guys more ‘cultured,’ so we will be having a discussion before and after each film as well.  Moreover, there’s a strong possibly that we’re going to be providing some popcorn too, but we can’t promise that just yet, so keep your fingers crossed!  Lastly, some of the films we will be watching will be rated R so we do require your parents to sign our permission slip before you can participate (attached in this blog for your downloadable convenience).  Well, I guess that’s it folks.  Hope to see you all there!
