Parents of children in our Skill Development Program,

If you have reserved a set of ski gear for your child, we are holding a gear fitting session next weekend. Several volunteers will be on hand to help your child try proper sized boots and to be measured for skis and poles. Gear will not be available to take home at this time.

Volunteers are needed: a few more people would be very helpful on this occasion. Reply to us if you are available.

Saturday November 23 – between 9:30 am and 12:00 pm

Basement of Boardstiff store at 542 – 2nd Avenue
please note: access is through the alley

We have 60 children registered in the lessons at this time. A waiting list will be started when this number reaches about 70. If you know of any interested families who have not registered their child yet, please forward this message to them.

You may consider becoming a volunteer coach this season. The basic training is easy and the club pays this cost. For each new coach, an additional six children can enroll in our weekly lessons. Contact Coach Nancy

Lastly please let me know in case you are unable to come during the Saturday time slot. An alternate date/time may be arranged for the fitting.
