Family Day (Monday February 18th ) our speed skating clubs host
Western Regional Meet # 4 at Chedoke Twin Pad Arena, Hamilton.
This is an excellent opportunity for all of our skaters to try racing on their home ice.
As you can appreciate, much work goes into hosting a speed skating competition.
To make this competition a success, we look to our speed skating families to help out by volunteering their time the day of the meet.
In the coming weeks, you will receive emails about :
a) registration to skate
b) volunteer role assignments for the meet
c) providing food for our out of town officials and volunteers.
In advance, we thank you for your continued support of our Clubs.
It takes a team to support the team.
Silent Auction Fundraiser & Children’s Table
We are starting to collect items for our Silent Auction Table for our upcoming Speed Skating meet, to be held on Feb. 18th, 2019.
The auction table is one of the major ways we raise funds from our meet. We need your help in two ways:
1. We request that each family donate an item for the auction.
This can be an item donated from your family, or feel free to approach companies for gift certificates, products or services etc. Attached below is a “Donation Letter” you can use to approach companies. Poplar items include: sports equipment, restaurant gift cards, movies, theme products etc.
For companies that sponsor or donate to our meet, we will provide free advertising during the meet, in our program and acknowledgement on our website. Please notify Annick at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to secure any corporate donations, so she can ensure proper acknowledgement. (The form below can also be used to gather food donations to feed our volunteers, or donations to support our fundraising efforts)
2. We are also asking each family to donate one item for the children’s table – simply pop by the Dollar Store and pick up a small item, or donate gently used children’s books, movies etc.
The children’s table is always a very popular table at our meet.
Over the years, we have received many compliments from other clubs about our silent auction table – it’s something everyone looks forward to – and I’m sure people won’t be disappointed this year either!
Please have your donations into Lynnette Terpsis (Nick’s mom) no later then Feb. 14th.
Thanks everyone for your contributions – your efforts are very much appreciated!
