Dion Snowshoes Contest – Winner!

Congratulations to our Dion Snowshoes Contest Winner…

Thank you to everyone who entered the Dion Eastern Ontario Snowshoe Running Series Contest for a free pair of Dion 121 running snowshoes.

We thoroughly enjoyed reliving the series of races through your words and what the races each meant to you. The judging panel had a difficult time making a decision, but have declared Jenn Ross the winner of the contest and Dion Snowshoes. Below is Jenn’s submission for you to enjoy once again…

  1. Congratulations Jenn Ioved that poem. I did enjoy everyone of the entries. I am so happy I was not a judge, I am positive that it was a very difficult decision to make with so many great entries. B

  2. Awesome! Grats JRT!!

  3. Hey, thanks for the spacing help Derrick! That works. I truly can’t say enough to thank both you and Sara for a wonderful snowshoe series. Both Graham and I had a ton of fun and we can’t wait to give it another go next year! I promised to share my new Dion’s with him. Actually, I told Graham (back when I was doing okay for points in the series) that if I won the snowshoes, I would give them to him. Hmmmm…since I didn’t actually win because of series points, does that mean I still have to give them up? I didn’t think so either!

    Thank you for your kind words Buttons and Corey. I’m glad I didn’t have to own the decision either! Tough crowd.

    Winter was fun…now bring on some sunshine and warm weather!

  4. Haha…Nope you don’t have to give them to Graham, but can let him try them once in a while.

    ….though if you make more comments about sunshine and warm weather, we may ask for them back :)


  5. Way to go Jenn!

    Your entry was awesome!

    Enjoy the Dion’s!
