WRA president soon The Whistler Resort Association is down to its final three contestants in its hunt for a new president. Acting president Craig MacKenzie is among the three, who had to submit to "tests" of their work ethic, personality and plans for Whistler's world domination. Results from those tests should be back Monday, says WRA board chair Rick Clare. An announcement of the winner will be sometime in the week of April 6. Chapel volunteers named The Whistler Ski Chapel Society has announced an administrator and volunteers who'll help raise funds for the multi-faith chapel's new building. Jami Fidork has been appointed administrator. Joining her are volunteers Mark James, Ken Nickerson, Leanne Niewerth, Jane Shadley, Wendy Shire, Karen Ulrich, Barry Johnson, Cynthia Friesen, Ann-Shirley Goodell, Alex Kleinman, Ingrid McDougall, Cathy Goddard and Heather Gamache. The society needs to raise $3.1 million to cover the cost of the chapel and community facility on land beside the Village North water park. Bus cards returning Be patient, oh million bus passengers, the Whistler Transit trip cards are on their way back. The electronic passes were taken off the system late last year when they developed glitches, but they and the card reading machines have had the kinks worked out since. The card readers have been re-installed in the buses. The cards are being poked, bent and undergoing all sorts of other tests, including on-the-road use by a select number of card testers, before they'll be available for sale to the general public. "People were really excited about them," says Linda Manheim, who's overseeing the card program.
