Hello GKHAT families,

We are 3 weeks away from the 2017 Online Auction and it looks like its going to be a big one. Thank you to everyone who has contacted me with a donation so far.

We love having a variety of items to offer on our auction site, including services, tickets, gift certificates, hotel stays and dinners out. Last year we had donations from businesses, restaurants, stores and donations that recognized the skills of our members including skilled trades, home cooked goodies, yard work and personal training. If you are looking for donation ideas, your options are endless and don’t need to cost you money. Ask our chiropractor, dentist, coffee shop or anyone you see regularly for donations, they could use the exposure to bring in new clients. What hobbies or skills do you have that you could offer? Think of products or services you could donate from your business or workplace… All of these great donations will bring in bids at the auction. We have letters you can use to approach businesses here: Introduction letter and Donation letter

When you have your donation ready, please enter the item details into the form- on the GKHAT website, the link is on the homepage at www.gkhat.ca. Then get in touch with us for item drop off.

The GOLDEN area contacts are Tawnia Jobin (tawnyspice@gmail.com) and Kim Bernasconi (kimroe@telus.net).
Your CALGARY contact is Teresa Ryan at fundraiser@gkhat.ca.

IMPORTANT DATES:

  1. Auction Items are due by NOVEMBER 11
  2. Auction runs NOVEMBER 18-26

Looking forward to running the best auction we’ve ever had!

Teresa Ryan

It is that time again! Waiver signing!

Just a friendly reminder that this year the waiver signing is due the same time as payment, October 30th.

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 have provided us with the following document to help us with the process. Please follow that 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.

Thinking snowy thoughts,

Anna
Registrar for GKHAT
