   Fundraising:  Our Collette Carlisle has arranged for us to be able to sell "hot dogs and burgers" at Sobey's Lakeland Ridge, in Sherwood Park, on 2 separate weekends.  The 1st weekend is Saturday, August 18th and Sunday, August 19th.   The 2nd weekend is Saturday, September 1st, Sunday, September 2, and Monday, September 3rd. 


Daily shifts are only 4 hours long.  10:00 am to 2:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Collette would like 3 people per shift.  Last time we did this we raised $410.  Please step-up and volunteer and let Collette know as soon as possible.   Please call her at 780 446 5637.  She needs to know as soon as possible to confirm if we can staff these events.  Remember we need to be able to buy US funds to buy wax for next year.

    Last I want to bring out a concern our organizers are having.  Club members have been volunteering to help but not showing up for their event or shift.  We are adults here so it is on you to manage your time to honor your commitments.  It is very stressful on the volunteer organizers to put together an event or commit to run a club program when the help required does not show up.  We have 97 members but most of the work is being done by a small minority so for those of you who have not stepped up yet, now is the time.

Our AGM is on August 29th at 1:00 pm (information sent to members on July 29th).  If you did not receive it please let us know.  Please plan to attend as we need your vote and support.  Nominations are open for Board positions.  You may also at that time sign up and pay your 2019 membership dues that day.


Charlie Loiselle, President

Please NO WALKING ON THE COURTS - EVER.  This is a dangerous practise and not good for vinyl courts.  Today someone was walking on the courts and this is of great concern.   Please don't walk on the courts for any reason.  Thank you in advance for respecting this rule.
