GETTING READY FOR 2014 -15 SKI SEASON

The ski season is approaching!

A reminder that the AGM of the Tay Valley Ski Club will take place on

Monday, November 3, 7:00 pm
Suite 202, 105 Dufferin St., (behind Wendy’s)

As usual, we will have a presentation following our business meeting. Peter Rozmovits, the president of Canadian Winter Sports, will be our guest speaker at this year’s A.G. His presentation will be focussed on training methods and available equipment relevant to our sport. He is also prepared to include a practical demonstration of waxing techniques in preparation for the upcoming season.

Memberships will be available at the meeting at the 2013-14 season rates.

This season we will soon be implementing on line registration. There will be a fee of $3 to $5 for on line registration. Paper registration will still be available if you prefer, at the AGM, or run off and mail in an application form from our website.
