Hi GKHAT Families,

First off, some important dates to remember are listed below. Go to www.gkhat.ca to get details on these.

  • October 31: Be sure that you have paid your fees.
  • October 31: Ensure that all waivers are signed.
  • November 11: Items for the auction must be provided by this date.
  • November 17-25: The auction is on!
  • December 8: Parent information meeting
  • December 15: Opening weekend

Payment

Don’t forget to get your payments in before the end of the month (Oct 31). Invoices have already been sent out. For most people, it would have been sent to you within one week of your sign up. Please make an effort to get you payment to us quickly. It will certainly help with our planning and being successful.
If you are having a problem, please contact either registrar@gkhat.ca or treasurer@gkhat.ca

Auction Items

November 11 is the due date for donations to this years online auction. Remember, it is mandatory for all families to make a donation to the auction. Base on the survey from last year, families felt this was a great way for the club to continue to step up for the extra funding needs. Get a donation from a business you go to, offer a product or service of your own, ask your hairdresser, your dentist, anyone to see if they’ll support our team. We count on the money raised at this auction to keep our fees the lowest and our programs running, we can not support our team without support from its members.

Once you have contacted us (at fundraiser@gkhat.ca) with your donation, go to www.gkhat.ca and enter your item information into the donation form-. This form provides critical information for the auction website and helps us keep track of the items that have been donated.

Before dropping off… be sure to complete the above form!

  • If you live in Golden, contact Sarah Short Ryan at fundraiser@gkhat.ca.You can also drop off you items with Kim Bernasconi at Mountain Motor Sports.
  • If you live in Calgary, contact Tracy Van Zalingen via email at tgantner@msn.com

Waivers

It is also that time to get your waivers signed! This is just a friendly reminder that the waiver signing is due the same time as your payment, October 31th. There are two waivers to sign, BC Alpine (club insurance) and the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort (RCR) waiver for ski clubs.

BC Alpine waiver

You should have received an email from BC Alpine to send you a personalized link. If you have not, click here and enter your email address in the green box. A waiver must be signed for each child registered, PLUS a parent. Please check over your details, and correct them if you need to.

If you are having trouble, please email me registrar@gkhat.ca . Do not postpone contacting me, as it can often be resolved quickly. If you are not getting the email from BC Alpine, please check your Spam. If it is not there either, please email me to let me know using the email account you wish to be your primary contact point with GKHAT.

RCR waiver

In addition to your regular waiver for your Season’s Pass, RCR asks us to sign their Event and Parental Consent Waiver Form. The easiest time to do this is when you sign your Season Pass waivers for them on-line, or when you pick up your season’s pass.

RCR provided us with a document last year. This process still applies (though the images are slightly different). Please follow this link.

For those of you that have already signed your waivers, thank you. For those of you who have not, please let me know if you have any issues.

Eagerly awaiting some snow to ski!!!
